Cruise News Daily Headlines for February 13, 2014

* Celebrity Confirms Century’s Departure - But for Where?
Celebrity Cruises finally confirmed that Celebrity Century will be leaving the fleet in the spring of 2015. It’s been an open secret that has kept the rumor mills churning, but they will have material for some time yet, because Celebrity has yet to confirm the disposition of the ship - if it is being sold outright or transferred to another RCCL brand.
   The announcement came along with information about the ship’s “Farewell Season” celebrating the ship’s long career with the line during the last year in the Celebrity livery.

* Scrub a Dub Dub
Norwegian Cruise Line has ordered scrubbers from Green Tech Marine for six additional ships in their fleet. The line previously ordered scrubbers for its two upcoming newbuilds, Norwegian Escape and Norwegian Bliss that will be built by Meyer Werft. Green has already provided scrubbers for Pride of America which were installed last year.
