Bearing units in Infinity's propulsion system will require more extensive repairs than originally expected, Celebrity Cruises announced today, following a thorough examination of the ship's propulsion equipment. These repairs will take longer than estimated earlier, and, unfortunately, will result in one additional sailing--on Feb. 23--being cancelled. Infinity is expected to resume service March 9.

Infinity is expected to return to service on June 22. "Bearings of this type are highly reliable and a problem such as this is rare," said Richard Sasso
