Woohoo. Been waiting for this... they snuck it in! :-)

It's a re-location from the Caribbean cruises that had been scheduled then.

Drat them, we waited and waited and then booked an Azamara for Rio - wonder if they will let us change without losing our deposit - we are UK based - I bet they will not

Hi Everyone !

Very interesting news that Century is heded to Australia/New Zealand after all, and we have our answer about Century's plans for the Winter 2011 season, as her Caribbean sailings from Baltimore have been unavailable for a few days.

I am interested in seeing the pricing on these cruises. When Hawaii was added earlier this year there was a real premium to earlier sailings to the same ports. We were booked on Millennium B2b2B 2010when the sailings were cancelled last year.

Default Wow, out of Baltimore. What geniuses!

Yes, I like the convenience of driving to Baltimore from my home in Virginia. Selfish motive declared.

BUT...................

NO OTHER PREMIUM cruise goes from Baltimore. Only Royal.

The DC area has TONS of high paid government officials, military officers. So many other high paying fields.

6% unemployment when the country is at 10%.

Amazing X would leave. Perhaps X management is on Holland's payroll.

Hey Michael! Good to see you. The new itineraries look great. It's going to be pretty hot and sticky up in Darwin at that time of year, isn't it. Kakadu was one of my favourite places ever to have visited, but even in late September it was hot.

Hope you are doing well and getting some cruises in.

Phil

Wink EXOTIC simplified and paraphrased

http://www.rclinvestor.com/phoenix.z...016&highlight=

Quote:
Celebrity's exotic new Australia and New Zealand season - bookended by a series of vacation options in Hawaii - features a total of 36 ports in six countries: Australia, New Zealand, Indonesia, French Polynesia, the U.S. and Mexico. The lineup includes 10 distinct itineraries, with six varied departure ports, including Sydney and Perth (Fremantle), Australia; Auckland, New Zealand; Honolulu, Hawaii; San Diego, California, and Ensenada, Mexico.
  • October 2, 2011: (and October 17) with two consecutive 15-night Hawaii sailings from San Diego,
  • followed by a 10-night Hawaii cruise from Ensenada to Honolulu.
  • November 11: An 18-night "Pacific Jewels" voyage departs Honolulu ,
  • followed by five 12- and 13-night New Zealand cruises between Sydney and Auckland, including a festive holiday sailing departing Sydney December 24.
  • 36-night circumnavigational voyage - through two combinable 18-night sailings: One will sail around the southern portion of Australia, featuring an overnight stay in Sydney and transits through three sounds - Milford, Doubtful and Dusky - in New Zealand's World Heritage-designated Fiordland National Park. The second of the combinable 18-night sailings takes cruisers around Australia's northern coast, and features a visit to the idyllic island of Bali, Indonesia - marking yet another first for Celebrity.
  • two 18-night Trans-Pacific voyages visiting the French Polynesian islands and Hawaii.
  • Return from Hawaii TBA
Quote:
Among the ports Celebrity will visit for the first time are Geraldton, Broome, Darwin, Cairns, Brisbane, Adelaide, Albany, Bunbury and Perth, Australia, in addition to Burnie, Tasmania, and Bali.
...details to be announced when bookings open for the entire slate of vacation options on Thursday, July 29. Celebrity also will announce details of an early booking incentive on that date

This all looks good to us. We did a 3000m road trip in NZ over 3.5 weeks and loved it. We did everything.

The ports and places mentioned are worth a return visit.

Never been to AU so that would be of interest. The extra ports are of interest since it solves some of the hit and run issues of doing ports only. You miss so much inland. We orginally wanted to do a road/air tour in Au, but if the itinerary is right, we may be able to accomplish it with Celebrity and enjoy our Elite Status to boot.

Just checked the site...it still shows Century leaving from Baltimore to the Caribbean. I would have been interested in the 18 n from Hawaii.

I believe Century leaves Ensenada for Hawaii on Nov. 01, departs Hawaii Nov 11 for an 18 night TransPacific arriving in NZ on the 30th...
Remember that Phileas Fogg gained a day going east... Century loses it here..
