Celebrity Cruises returns to Australia
Celebrity Century arrives in Sydney today for the first time, marking cruising's big Celebrity comeback. It's the first visit by the premium cruise line in 3 years, and the 1800 passenger superliner will make it worthwhile, staying in Australia until March 2012.
As the region's top-rated home-ported ship, Celebrity Century offers special touches such as a welcome glass of champagne, an ice bar, and pool butlers who deliver cold towels and iced water to sunbathers.
Passengers booked in suites will also have the services of their own butler as well as in-suite afternoon tea, evening hors d'oeuvres and dinner.
According to Adam Armstrong, commercial manager of Celebrity Cruises Australia, Century is set to be a "game changer" this summer. "With a ratio of two staff members to every guest, all guests on Celebrity Century are thoroughly looked after on their cruise by crew who will go the extra mile to deliver an unforgettable experience," he said.
"We're proud to bring such an industry leading brand back to the region and offer our guests an elegant yet affordable choice in local cruising."
The maiden Australian program is comprised of 12- to 18-night sailings departing from Sydney, Fremantle and Auckland. Itineraries include Celebrity's inaugural circumnavigation around Australia and New Zealand.
Celebrity Century also features fine-dining restaurants, a 1000 seat theatre, kids and teens clubs and museum-quality art collections.
