There are rumors that the Grand Celebration (ex. Carnival Celebration) has been sold for scrap in Alang, India (the same place where her sister ship Henna (ex. Carnival Jubilee, Pacific Sun) was scrapped in 2017) as it seems like the vessel has been sold. Now, BPCL is denying that they sold the vessel for scrap, but her ship tractor says otherwise as it has a destination for Alang. Also, news articles are talking about her. If the sale is confirmed to be true, that will leave the Magellan (ex. Carnival Holiday, Grand Holiday) as the last Holiday-class vessel (Magellan was recently bought by SeaJets). Here are the links.

You know, SeaJets could have bought Grand Celebration. After all, they bought her sister ship Magellan.

Yes indeed, they could have done that but perhaps, having just bought several other cruise ships they decided they just did not need another one.

After a week of denial, Bahamas Paradise Cruise Line has confirmed that they did sell the Grand Celebration. They refused to say who they sold her to, but they also said that they're going to keep and upgrade the Grand Classica. Here is the link:
