Non-stop cruise to Vancouver

/, Cruise Ships/Non-stop cruise to Vancouver

On their way at last – passengers aboard Celebrity Millennium finally left port yesterday after being stuck in Seward, Alaska, since Friday.
The ship was delayed awaiting electrical repairs to one of its two propulsion motors which failed on August 8, leading to a four-hour delay on arrival in the remote town.
Millennium will sail directly to Vancouver instead of visiting Juneau, Skagway and Ketchikan, and is due to arrive in the Canadian city on Friday morning, as originally scheduled.
Passengers who chose to stay on the ship after arriving to board the vessel last Friday brought an unexpected bonanza for local traders and tour operators, taking fishing trips, dog-sled rides and excursions to nearby glaciers. Celebrity also flew in additional entertainers.
Those who chose to remain on the vessel received a full refund of the fare and a 100 per cent credit towards a future cruise. Those who decided to fly home – understood to be about 100 of the 2,000 total – will be given a refund and 50 per cent credit.
