Celebrity Cancels Summit And Infinity Sailings

Celebrity Cruises will send two ships, Summit and Infinity, into unscheduled drydocks March 29 and April 13, respectively, to repair propulsion pods.

Both ships are operating safely but at a lower cruising speed.

Summit will cancel a March 29 sailing from Fort Lauderdale, and an 11 -night cruise April 8 will be shortened to a seven-night sailing April 12.

Infinity will miss its April 13 and 20 sailings from San Juan. Infinity will modify two itineraries.

The problem with the pods involves ball-bearing units that are wearing out prematurely. Consequently, ships must reduce their cruising speed, potentially falling behind schedule on port calls.

By making repairs as soon as possible.

Celebrity will avoid further changes in itineraries.

Both ships will be drydocked at the Grand Bahama Shipyard in Freeport, Bahamas.
