Celebrity Cruises continues to closely monitor the path and progress of Hurricane Irene to ensure guests enjoy safe and comfortable cruises, and to make certain our ships steer clear of the storm.
Based on weather forecasts that put Hurricane Irene on track to impact the east coast this weekend, and that the Governors of New Jersey and New York declared a state of emergency, Celebrity Summit remained in Bermuda until 5:00 pm Friday, August 26. We now anticipate that the ship will arrive in Bayonne, New Jersey, on Monday, August 29.
Because of the ship's late arrival, Celebrity Summit's next sailing will now depart on Monday, August 29. Guests scheduled to sail on the Sunday, August 28, sailing of Celebrity Summit should now arrive at Cape Liberty on Monday between 12:00 pm and 4:00 pm. We also encourage guests on this sailing to continue to monitor updates for any possible additional modifications. Celebrity Cruises has not altered the itineraries of any other ship that departs this weekend. Celebrity Cruises will continue to closely monitor weather conditions and will update this information.
