Celebrity Cruise Line has stated that any pre-existing bookings will have until January 2nd to purchase their gratuities at the old rate. Bookings from Jan 2nd and for those guests wanting to pay gratuities on the ship from that date will have to pay the new automatic rates.

The gratuities are automatically taken off the onboard SeaPass account but guests can still change the gratuities at the end of the cruise if they really want to. The gratuities are paid and shared among crew members in the housekeeping, dining room and bar departments.

Celebrity Cruises have celebrated the ceremonial keel laying of Celebrity Flora, an expedition ship built specially for sailing around the Galapagos Islands. The ceremony took place at the shipyard in Tolkamer, the Netherlands.

As a part of the keel laying, a 49.2-ton block was lifted in the air and a lucky coin was placed in the dock before the block was lowered into position.
