Century Cruises bought Carnival Fascination

(TRAVPR.COM) CHINA - July 27th, 2021 - When we launched our first Eco vessel, Century Glory, in 2019, we did it so well that we have decided to launch another two: Century Victory and Century Oasis. With these recent additions, we have made a family of nine vessels on the Yangtze River and so are the biggest river cruise company in China. 

According to the management of Century Cruises: “We felt restless and ready to go further east, to the ocean. As a result, Century Cruises acquired an ocean-going ship called Century HARMONY! “ 

They continued: “Again, the name has a deep meaning for us. We wanted to make the passage from river into ocean cruises to be in harmony with our company polices where the client comes first! It’s also our long-term cruise industry development strategy of Century Cruises. “ 

Century Harmony (formerly Fascination, then Carnival Fascination) was built by Kværner Masa-Yards at its Helsinki New Shipyard in Helsinki, Finland and was christened Fascination by Jeanne Farcus, wife of Joe Farcus, the interior designer behind most of the Carnival fleet.

Across 10 decks Century Harmony offers a total of 1026 cabins, comprising 54 Suites, 98 Balcony rooms, 564 Oceanview and 408 Inside cabins, in all 26 grades/cabin categories. Most staterooms are sized 185 ft2 (17 m2). Century HARMONY has 24 wheelchair-accessible cabins (ADA staterooms adapted for passengers with disabilities). 

Extended Balcony Suites (with 115 ft2 balconies) and Grand Suites (330 ft2) are the largest and accommodate up to 4 passengers, with spacious sitting areas and larger bathrooms (fitted with whirlpool bathtubs and separate showers). Suite guests also benefit from VIP services and exclusive amenities. 

Furthermore, Century Harmony offers Two Main Dining rooms, One Buffet restaurant, One Sushi bar, and other Six bars including Burger Joint bar with Poolside bar serving high quality international food.

Making sure clients never get bored while cruising on Century Harmony, the vessel is well-equipped with free time themes such as Grand Atrium Plaza with 7-deck high midship open area served by the Lobby Bar, 24-hour Internet Cafe, Photo Gallery and Boutique Shops, Library, Junior Cruisers Center, Massage & Spa Room, 24-hour Video Games Area, Basketball/Volleyball Court, Jogging Track, Tennis Tables, 9-hole Mini-Golf Course, Shuffleboard. etc.  We at Century Cruises always make sure life on board is full of engaging activities and memorable experiences. 

The management of Century Cruises finished: “After a long year of uncertainty in the cruise industry all across the globe, the new acquisition is a kingpin to better things to come. Ocean Cruises has always been on the mind of Century Cruises, having seen a huge number of international cruise operators passing through the ports of Shanghai, Shenzhen, Sanya, Tianjin, Hong Kong and Macau. Now, as the leading Cruise company in China, having been “born and bred” in China, we can offer unique insights of this majestic country, based on our deep knowledge and wide experience.   

We are very pleased to extend our welcome to Century HARMONY and we are looking forward to unveiling our famed hospitality, thousand-year-old culture, unique experiences, world class cuisine and wide range of accommodation which are the essence of our company mission."
