I do not know, but in I feel they need to. We like to cruise different ships and itiernaries, so we also cruise RCCL, because we have cruised the Century, Mercury, Millie, Galaxy routes. Also we like ships with the alternative restuarant's. Was hopping Celebrity would stretch the Century class ships and add another class ship, maybe even the same size, but different layout from the M class.

My dining experience on Century was sooo perfect I didn't feel a need to look for alternatve restaurant.

What Century needs is maybe one more pool (maybe with retractable roof. (Loved it on Splendour of the Seas)

We checked the Royal Caribbean annual report (Celebrity parent company) for this year and they only discuss contracting for another "ultra Voyager" for delivery in May 2006. No mention of new Celebrity ships.

Celebrity has no new ships on order.

I think the only expansion potential right now, in terms of ships, is in the Xpedition devision. I'm not sure if they're actively searching for another vessel but it wouldn't surprise me.

As for new destionations, I have no idea.

New destinations are a must-how many times can you cruise the Caribbean and Alaska? As for new ships, add new ships by buying other cruiselines (the Carnival formula). Crystal would be a good fit.
