Propeller Damage Shuts Celebrity Ship Down

A damaged propeller aboard Celebrity Millennium is the reason two 12-night Mediterranean sailings have been cancelled, the cruise line announced over the weekend. The ship will reenter service on July 24. On July 2, the Millennium's propellers struck a submerged rock following an electrical malfunction while anchored off Villefranche, France. A total of four blades were damaged. Celebrity initially thought repairs could be made at the scene, but divers concluded that a drydock would be necessary. The remaining portion of the current cruise has been cancelled, as has the next cruise, which was scheduled to depart on July 12.
