I agree that Bridge is not popular with the younger generation, and could understand Celebrity's decision if their Bridge Program did not attract many of its passengers. However, during our last few cruises, people who came to Bridge Class at the last minute had trouble finding a seat, while the afternoon Bridge game had so many players it was necessary to use an additional room for it.
During the sixties, many people learned how to play Bridge in college dorms/fraternity houses and that is supposedly the type of passenger that Celebrity aims to attract.
The only possible reason I could think of for this decision is that Celebrity is trying to attract a younger demographic and wants to revamp its programs accordingly.
