Delayed back to port.
Due to Storm Babet, the Celebrity Silhouette’s return to Southampton is delayed by 12 hours, impacting the boarding for its next cruise. The storm caused the ship to skip Vigo, Spain, and stay overnight in Lisbon, Portugal.
Celebrity Cruises has provided guests with boarding options for later tonight or early tomorrow. Those who want to board on Monday will receive a 200-pound reimbursement.
The next transatlantic cruise will skip the Azores and stop at Kings Wharf, Bermuda, and Nassau, Bahamas, before arriving in Florida in early Nov.
