An expensive disappointment: Celebrity Century Cruise Review by QQuester
Overall Member Rating
An expensive disappointment
On the plus side, Embarkation was smooth and fast, as was disembarkation. This was due partly to concierge class which had some priority.
Our main concierge attendant was rarely seen. We had no towel animals (we have loved these on other cruises) The area around the bathroom sink stayed dirty until I cleaned it on the third day. Despite early requesting select dining and prepaying the gratuities, we had to eat at 6:00. This made the appetizers(paste on cucumber) which came to our room daily, unnecessary. Our table staff was superb! Avanash and Jule made our trip.They made us feel as if we were the most important folks on the ship. They were entertaining and competent. A birthday celebrated in Murano was delightful.The staff there was so professional. The food everywhere was very good to excellent. We also enjoyed the entertainment with a fine cast of energetic young people.
Thanks to the Captain for the wonderful tour of Hubbard Glacier. Tours were very expensive and therefore we only took the train in Skagway. We missed some great scenery by traveling at night. In general, I found the Century tired and worn and I would not cruise on her again. The smoke issue makes me question Celebrity's status as a 4star line. Less
Cabin review: C21001 Concierge Class
Century 1001 Terrible cabin, cigarette smoke filtered in from air system throughout 9 day trip. Apparently could not be fixed. Hall is stale. Room is small, but adequate for only two. Good shower, nice toiletries. It says concierge on door, but didn't see any evidence of it.Read All Concierge Class (C2) Reviews >>
