1051,1053, 1059

We were very happy with our rooms, they were spotlessly clean and had ample storage. The beds were comfortable and the room steward went out of his way to make our stay memorable, The room is mid ship and in a great location as you just go up one flight of stairs and you are in the Island cafe.

1075
Century 1075 Furniture was worn out. Chairs were in bad shape. Bathroom sink was cracked. The balcony was excellent along with the balcony furniture. The binoculars inthe room did not work. Once lenz would not focus. One evening on a 14-day trip the toilets on our side of the hallway did not work forcing passengers to go up to deck 11 to use a toilet. 1075 Sky Suite was in midships making it easy to get to dining venues and entertainment venues.  Read entire member review.

No Sparkle on the Century by stonehousekitty
We were in a concierge class cabin with a balcony and it was fine. A bit small, but OK. Some of the materials covering chairs etc. were worn and stained, but not really bad.  Read entire member review.

Room 1141 Celebrity Century. Not alot of privacy being just below the Sunset lounge, but great if you are a smoker as the stairs are close by and it is just one floor up. Room is exceptional, balcony large, but often wet from being cleaned off perhaps....many puddles on the deck. I'm sure they would have dried them if I would have asked, but it was usually very warm on the balcony and I couldn't take the heat for very long so I would take my book and read in my room most of the day. Good movie selection. Butler service is wonderful.  Read entire member review.

Best Cruise ever by Ken&Vivian
Cabin 1141 is very small, a lot smaller than other ships. Very noisy as there is a restaurant and open sitting area for the public. We hardly used the balcony because there is alwasy people above us and looking down. Crapy cabin.  Read entire member review.

Classy Century by tn1728

Cabin was standard size, balcony very roomy. Cabin was very noisy during rough seas, but otherwise quiet. Convenient to the buffet, sunset bar and elevators.

Huge balcony. Fantastic butler and service. Restaurant from above could look down on your balcony.  Read entire member review.
1217
Cabin 1217 is an ideally located insider cabin because it is on the top deck of the ship, and is very near the action, so to speak. Also, you receive a very high level of individual service from the room attendants because this cabin is located in the middle of a bunch of expensive balcony cabins. In addition, because it is an inside cabin you can easily take restful naps without the daylight keeping you from being able to sleep during the day. Also, one of the best features of any of the cabins aboard this ship are the superb showers, which never ran out of hot water, and actually got hotter the longer you had them on.  Read entire member review.

Great location, great balcony, plenty of space  Read entire member review.

Very comfortable bed and pillows. Plenty of storage and personal space. Clean and very well kept by the cabin steward. Ask for cushions for the loungers on the balcony.

Loved the Century by johngumdoc

Tarp really limits view in aft cabin.  Read entire member review.
1249

First things first, however, and to our cabin. Number 1249, located at the stern, on the sports deck above the aft bar. This, overall, is an excellent cabin and a very nice place to stay. We did request an outside cabin on a higher deck of the ship and we were rewarded. There is a good amount of space inside, with ample storage for regular-sized suitcases (we put ours into the wardrobe and made use of the many drawers and shelves inside the cabin). There is an in-room safe (which was somewhat temperamental), a compact, no-frills bathroom, and a useful air-conditioning system.

In terms of sleeping options, 1249 is probably one of the most flexible cabins aboard. Two twin beds, a fold-down single bunk, and a sofa that easily converts into a fourth bed. The beds are comfortable, although taller passengers may find them to be a little on the short side. There is also a handy curtain that can be used to divide the cabin into two, so those sleeping on the fold-down sofa bed can gain a little extra privacy. There is a single power-socket as well, which worked perfectly for us when we needed to charge our electronic equipment. The in-room TV allows you to check your onboard account, view shore excursions, and also view the current location of the ship on what I christened 'The Map Channel'. Other channels available for us included Sky and Fox News, although the TV channels are subject to the varying strength of the signal when at sea.

In terms of housekeeping, the staff are efficient and polite. They cleaned our cabin to an excellent standard and were also kind enough to fold down the sofa bed before we returned to our cabin each evening. This was a nice bonus and something unexpected. Also, the housekeeping staff do take the time to remember each of your names, which adds a personal touch, though you may find the daily greetings a little odd if you are used to hotel-style room service.

So, lots of space, a neat layout, and comfortable beds. Is cabin 1249 the perfect haven for passengers each night? No. Firstly, the cabin does feel like a room that has been welcoming passengers for almost twenty years. There are various scuffs and marks dotted around the cabin, and the bodged repair job on the shower support handle was more than a little obvious. While you may be thinking 'but that doesn't matter!' I don't feel that expecting high standards, even on a ship as old as the Century, is wrong. These things are not deal-breakers, by any means, but they are worth pointing out. It is obvious that with the launches of their newest ships, Celebrity have pushed the Century to the bottom of their priority list. These issues merely confirmed that to me.

Absolutely wonderful by Bernadette Donohue
Inside Stateroom. What can you expect! really Nice, lovely shower, hair dryer, towels, bed, safe/ wardrobes all excellent.. Tv and excellent air condition. Next time maybe a balcony  Read entire member review.
4001

A very tired room ready to be gutted by the ship's new owners. The carpet was filthy and would turn your feet or socks deep brown if they were damp. The shower was moldy, and it was starting to come into the rest of the bathroom. Parts of the window were so foggy you couldn't really see through it. This was the last passenger cabin on the aisle, so right next to our door was the door separating out the crew space. It's a very heavy door and they tend to just let it slam behind them... all night.

Spot On!! by Joan McCartney
We were in 4010 and kept telling people we were in 'steerage'!! It was very good for the money. I did try to upgrade and pay for a balcony but none was available. One did become available at an extra 800 but I declined. I thought the money would have been better spent on shore or in the casino! I did hear of one woman who had been relocated from a 'noisy' room to another balcony room, so I wondered where that came from when I was told there was only a much more expensive one available. Doesn't matter though, because our room was more than adequate and immaculate. After all - you only sleep in it and in November in the Med -its not exactly sunbathing weather to sit on a balcony!! We found the Island Bar deck and the Mast Bar perfectly adequate to sit on.  Read entire member review.

Our cabin was clean, with lots of space for clothes and toiletries. Tthe bathroom was ok, the shower, because the pressure was so high kept throwing water onto the floor.  Read entire member review.

It was perfect except that we were directly above a large hatchway that was used by the crew where we would hear banging and knocking.  Read entire member review.

We booked an inside cabin.  We had lots of storage.  The shower was bigger than on most ships.  Since we were on the 4th floor , we expected some noise but it was very quiet.  Read entire member review.

Lots of closet space, great curtain..blocks out light, large suitcases fit under the bed for space, pillows kind of flat, bedding a little hard but better than most ships, quiet, bathroom small, but very usable, 26" LCD that showed some stations and location information...you can even check your account daily on it.  Read entire member review.

Loved it.....except! by Runaway Rose

This cabin was in a great position, quiet area however the bed is very hard and uncomfortable with over used pillows that are so flat, they offer no support! The stateroom attendant who's name is Rodim is a wonderful man and an asset to the company

Lots of closet & drawer space. Good location on ship. Was surprised that the walls seemed thin & we could hear our neighbors (I guess they could hear us too?) I knew there would be bunk beds (which we did not need) -- but I didn't think I would be hitting my head on it (I did a couple of times) & bumped my ankle on the little wall that juts out near the bunk bed.  Read entire member review.

The room was build in well, lots of cupboards to keep things in.. The balcony was spaced well . It was kept clean and tidy. The only thing bad was ..they did not have iron box .... Otherwise it was a perfect room.

Cabin was fine, behalve the beds. They were saggy and had to get fixed. What I missed in the bathroom was shower lotion and in the cabin was only one plug outlet. Not enough for a CPAP machine and to reload the batteries during the night.

8174

Clean but dated. The table set outside on the veranda needed replacing...The Bed: WOW! the worst I'd ever slept on anywhere. It was so low we couldn't put our luggage underneath. It was lower on one side than the other. It had some type of odd oval shape at the foot and it was also a queen, instead of the two twins converted to a queen we'd come to expect from other cruise lines...And this was in a balcony room. Don't turn back the fitted sheet if you don't want to see how worn out a mattress can get. The structure of it was falling apart. I will end on a positive concerning the room in that the shower was the largest we'd seen and it did have a shower wand, albeit one with no message feature.

8233

We had aft balcony stateroom 8233 by pure luck. We had booked an inside but saw a deal we couldn’t pass up to upgrade to a veranda guarantee. It is a family veranda stateroom and the oddity is the double bed is against the wall on one side. It cannot be separated. One person has to climb over the other to get out of bed which can result in some interesting and rudely awakening hand placement in the middle of the night. The other half of the stateroom features a fold out couch and upper berth folded against the wall. A sliding panel can separate the two areas. At 194 square feet it is larger than the 175 square foot standard port or starboard veranda staterooms with the same sized veranda at 49-ish square feet. The concierge suites have deeper verandas, not wider.

Why did we like aft versus port or starboard?

The aft cabins give 180 degrees views from port to starboard and they are protected from the wind. The sound of the propwash is calming white noise like ocean waves. It was odd that of the 40 or so aft veranda cabins we only saw 2 or 3 others in use and we sat on ours a lot. Go grab a blanket from the pool deck. Drape over your lap during cooler days and we had a day where we wore shorts on our veranda which was incredible for May.

Vibration and noise. There was some concern that the aft staterooms would be susceptible to vibrational noise. This was not true except on our very last night where we suspect something “broke”. At 1:52 AM the ship began to shudder and did so until we tied up at 6:45 AM. The MDR staff were surprised as well. They had to straighten up all the cutlery that had vibrated around the tables.

Deck 8 aft staterooms are directly above the Crystal Room lounge and if you are the type that goes to the early (6PM) dinner seating and toddles off to bed by 9:30PM then directly above a lounge may not be the ideal choice. One deck separation in that location would be better. We like the 8:30 PM seating so we are not rushed and by the time we got back to our cabin around 11:30 PM there was 4 or 5 muffled songs then at 12 midnight it all shut off. It did not bother us a bit.

To veranda or not veranda in Alaska

This question is asked repeatedly in every forum. My simplest answer is yes if it is acceptable within your budget. The views at any time of day can be worth it especially if the weather is good. We originally had an inside cabin but saw a stupid good deal and rolled the dice on a balcony guarantee. We felt we won for what we paid in comparison to what we got. If you do have an inside cabin then get up on deck or to an upper lounge. Those places have the same view as Aqua, Concierge or veranda for less money. The point of cruising is to cruise and see things.

Generally comfortable but a few things to note. A bit banged up on some of the furniture surfaces, and the window has a partial obstruction, which is part of the category. But the window is also scratched up, foggy and salted over for about half of the rest of its view, so it was difficult to see much out of it. This room is also equipped with bunk beds overhead which, even stowed you can bang your head on until you learn to avoid them when getting out of bed. The remaining singles, when put together, are of "bunk bed quality"--and these beds don't link together like the ones in other rooms. After nearly slipping onto the floor in the middle of each night, with resulting back pain, the room steward kindly replaced the mattresses with thicker ones and did something to hitch the beds together more tightly.  Read entire member review.

Room 9104 (9th floor w Balcony), Nice and clean, ship is older, but in decent shape. Power bar is a good idea. 3 closets, lots of room for luggage and clothes. Shower was great-lots of pressure, and high enough for 6ft 3in person. DH complained that the TV was on a loop (repeats). Are you KIDDING, we are on an Alaskan Cruise-look out the window-amazing sights! Our room was SILENT, I never heard other guests, no strange fumes/smells, it was a good room.

Our cabin number 9171 on the 9th level. Nice room but I through an up graded cabin would be larger because you paid more. Colors were nice room clean. Our robs were clean and white our sheets were changed every day. I always travel with my own pillow cases did not have to use them.(smile) clean bathroom and large.  Read entire member review.
9180
We were in a Concierge Class, verandah cabin (9180). We have booked the same cabin for our Australia/New Zealand cruise in January. We are trying to change it. The cabin is a very nice one. We like the Century's cabins. Even though they are smaller than the M-class and S-class ship cabins, they feel bigger to us. Lots of storage, a good-size bathroom and a shower with push-out shower curtain. With the weather being as rainy as it was, we spent very little time outside. The reason we are trying to change it is that it has a connecting door to the room next door. The folks next door weren't that noisy except the morning at 5:00 am when they decided to have a long discussion at full voice so we have told our travel agent that if another cabin opens up in the same class, grab it.  Read entire member review.

Great Location. The cabin is not large, but well laid out with lots of cupboard space. Nice size bathroom - you can turn around in the shower. We loved having a balcony and used it a lot.

Awful Experience by John5ive

Even though I'm over six foot, I'm not particularly tall but I do suffer from a bad back from time to time and the bed was a nightmare. My feet hung over the edge, the bed was so low we couldn't put any cases underneath and the mattress had no give left in it after many many years of service...there was also no sign of a 'pillow menu' which was mentioned in the prospectus. The towels had also seen better days and they always smelled so the bathroom was always an unpleasant place to be.

First class 5 star room. Excellent cupboard space. Best bed ever slept in with wonderful bedlinen (Eqyptian cotten - Pillows wonderful too. We were midship, sports deck. Some of the balcony furniture needed painting. Loved all the personal touches, e.g. Welcome name on flat screen. Bathroom toiletries of a good standard and fragrance.  Read entire member review.

Inside cabin 5069. Small but very well laid out with adequate closet and drawer space for 7 days, a little tight for 10-14 days. If you are a large person or spend a lot of time in your cabin reading or watching TV, you will feel cramped in here. Spend the money for a balcony, esp. on longer cruises. Small bathrooms but good sized shower area and storage very convenient and adequate.  Read entire member review.

We were in cabin 4079, midship, only 4 cabins down from center elevators.( It is offered as an inexpensive outside cabin rate -we paid $329 1st and 2nd and $199 3/4 passenger for 4 night cruise and thought it was a great value) Not a big room at all but has 2 overhead bunks and two twins/king with walk in shower in the bathroom, no couch or seating area, just one chair and a small table. It was quiet yet a great location to easy access any area of the ship and a good value being we only use our cabin to sleep or take showers etc.  Read entire member review.

Farewell to Century! by traveltilidrop

Inside cabins are great if you are on a tight budget and/or like the idea of getting some much needed rest without sunlight coming into your room early in the morning to wake you up.
