Despite the fact that this is a young company, it has 6 ships that were a part of the company's fleet but have already left it.
Today we will talk about the fate of these ships and find out what happened to them after they had left
The ship was the part of the Celebrity's fleet until 1997. After Royal Caribbean International had swallowed up the company, the ship was sold to Sun Cruises and became known as Sun Vista.
On May 20, 1999, there was a fire on the ship. The ship was in the Straits of Malacca. All the passengers and crew were evacuated, and the ship sank.
The ship served Celebrity until 2005, for 15 years!
In 2005, she was transferred to Island Cruises (a subsidiary of RCI) and became known as Island Star. Under this name, the cruise liner operated the Mediterranean cruises in summer and the Caribbean cruises in winter for four years.
In 2009, the ship was transferred to another subsidiary of Royal Caribbean - Pullmantur.
The ship sailed under her new name of Pacific Dream for about a year. The distinctive logo of Celebrity Cruises - X - remained on her funnel.
In November 2010, another subsidiary of Royal Caribbean, Croisières de France, became the owner of this ship.
The liner received her new-old name - Horizon.
Until 2017, the ship sailed under the flags of Croisières de France. Now there is a process of her transfer to the new-old owners - Pullmantur.
The ship is still in service, and you can enjoy the cruise on her!
In 2009 and 2013, there was a fire on the ship. Nobody was hurt both times.
In 2014, Zenith was transferred to the fleet of Croisières de France.
Now (2017) there is a process of transferring the ship back to Pullmantur Cruises.
Celebrity Galaxy was the third ship that left the company (but she was not the third one by the date of construction).
The liner was built in 1996. Until 2009, she was the part of the Celebrity's fleet.
The ship is still in service and pleases cruise lovers!
Mercury was the next ship that joined the fleet and left it.
The cruise liner was built in 1997, and she repeated the fate of her sister, Celebrity Galaxy. The ship was the part of Celebrity until 2011.
The liner served the company until 2015! For 20 years!
In 2015, it became known that Celebrity Century became the flagship and the only ship of SkySea Cruises (a joint venture of RCI and the famous Chinese travel provider - Ctrip.com).
The new name of the ship is SkySea Golden Era.
Unfortunately, we do not know more details about the destiny of this ship. The only thing we found out is that SkySea Golden Era operates cruises in Asia, and the ship is in Xiamen at the time of writing (06/12/17). Source: MarineTraffic
