Ship Facts: Celebrity Century Review (by Cruise Critic!) | Celebrity Century Deck Plans
Alaska Hubbard Glacier 7 Night
Stateroom and Ship Appearance Overall this is a good cruise for 7 nights. However I was a bit dissapointed by the ship. It's name is the Centuary and this fits the bill as it is definately looking it's age. Lots of rusty steel and tarnished brass fittings. Outside doors on promanade deck look as if they have been bought at a second hand shop. Our cabin interior decor looked rather worn and knocked about - not enough to complain about - but enough to be slightly irritating when having paid out a not insignificant amount of money to go cruising.

Food

Standard of food served in main dinning room was very good and served efficiently by happy looking staff. Choice of wine and standard also very good.

If you want a table next to a window then you have to ask. I have not yet discovered the secret of getting these automatically!

Food served in buffet lounge was average to good - but portions tended to be small. I nearly always had to ask for another portion to be put on my plate to compansate for this. Staff at buffet generally polite but a few were rather morose looking.

Entertainment

Typical of ship class standards, just OK, dont expect London west-end.

Having said that I think all those involved worked hard to deliver their best.

Activities for kids

My son is 13 and spent most of ship time at the teen club. They do a good job at keeping them happy. If they are well behaved they get a visit to the navigational bridge near the end of the cruise.

Embarkation

This was very efficient and painless - well done here.

Would I go again

Yes, I was glad I went on this cruise. However Celebrity need to retire the Centuary soon as there are just too many pimples and warts beginning to show up on the old lady and no amount of foundation will hide them any more.
