Celebrity Cruises reports that Celebrity Century has moved into the drydock at the Chantier Naval de Marseille shipyard at Marseilles and is out of the water. The line says repairs are still proceeding as planned and reiterated that everything is on schedule to return the ship to service with the October 25 sailing. They again said passengers on that sailing should proceed to Barcelona, and if for some unforeseen reason the ship should not be ready on time, they will cover accommodations costs and expenses in Barcelona until passengers can board the ship.
