Century Harmony was acquired from Carnival Cruise Line in 2020

Chinese cruise company Century Cruises is to expand into ocean cruising after acquiring Century Harmony, formerly Carnival Fascination, from Carnival Cruises in 2020.

“The name has a deep meaning for us,” said Century Cruises in a statement. “We wanted to make sure the passage from river into ocean cruises was in harmony with our company polices, where the client comes first!”

Century Harmony was built by Kværner Masa-Yards in Helsinki, Finland. She has a total of 1026 cabins, comprising of 54 suites, 98 balcony rooms, 564 ocean-view rooms and 408 inside cabins in 26 cabin categories. Guests in the extended balcony suites and grand suites will receive VIP services and have access to exclusive amenities.

The ship includes two main dining rooms, one buffet restaurants, a sushi bar and six bars and lounges, including the Burger Joint and Poolside bars. Other features include a massage and spa room, a nine-hole mini-golf course, a basketball and volleyball court, and a range of boutique shops.

“Ocean cruises have 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,” said the company. “Now, as the leading cruise company in China, and having been ‘born and bred’ in China, we can offer unique insights of this majestic country based on our deep knowledge and wide experience.”
