Seabourn And Windstar Finally Return To Alaska – Celebrity Cruises Changes UK Ship – Trouble At Falmouth?

The Cruise Examiner for 10th July 2017

Canadian Pacific's Princess Charlotte at Alert Bay 1930s

Seabourn is reviving the port of Alert Bay, where Canadian Pacific’s Princess Charlotte is seen. She later became Swan Hellenic’s Mediterranean

Seabourn’s first Alaska departure in fifteen years left Vancouver last month when the Seabourn Sojourn sailed north to Seward and went on during her return voyage to add calls at Prince Rupert, Klemtu and Alert Bay in northern British Columbia that will make her itineraries unique. And next year, Windstar Cruises will return to Alaska after an absence of twenty years. In their case they will use the Star Legend, which sailed for many years as Seabourn Legend. In the UK, Celebrity Cruises will be changing from the Celebrity Eclipse to the Celebrity Silhouette in 2018. And trouble seems to be brewing in Falmouth, Jamaica, the six-year-old mega-ship port that was opened by Royal Caribbean in 2011, after complaints from passengers about surly welcomes to Jamaica.
