Hubbard Glacier Alaska on the Celebrity Century May/2013

Sail Date: May 2013
Destination: Alaska
Embarkation: Vancouver

The Ship:
Yes the Celebrity Century is the oldest in the Celebrity Fleet, however, fear not! This Ship is a classic beauty and bow to aft, in tip top shape as far as functionality and cleanliness.

The Staff:
First off, a Big Shout out to just a few of the Stars onboard the Century that we had the pleasure in meeting and had the delight of being taken care of by them. The Waiters we had were exceptional! Volkan, Selvi & Hector were so very efficient and knowledgeable and always smiling and attentive to our dining needs. Selvi went above and beyond in supplying my wife with a beautiful Birthday Cake! Thanks Heaps Selvi!

Jairo and Peter made our home away from home serene! Every night we returned to chocolates on our pillows, fruit in our basket and the occasional towel creature protecting our cabin from the unknown :) Both gents were always so very pleasant and greeted us with smiles and a genuine interest in how our day was going - we so appreciated it! More

The Aqua staff were equally brilliant and took away our aches and pains with ease - thanks folks!

Our Cruise Director Rich was brilliant! I am a firm believer that your Cruise Director by in large, sets the tone of your Cruise and Rich kept us smiling and educated throughout the Cruise. If you're lucky to have Rich as a Cruise Director on your cruise, you'll be in great hands my friends!

The Cruise Highlights:
We loved the Persian Garden - the Heated Tiled Chairs are delish! Melting the aches away
The Aqua Spa Eatery - Mostly Free and Absolutely Healthy! Kept our bellies from bulging :)
The Theatre - Amazingly well laid out, really not a bad seat or view point in the house!
The Shows - Celebrity's Entertainment on this Cruise was second to none in my humble opinion - Amazing!
Cruising the Hubbard Glacier - we got soooo close we could almost feel the mist from the calving 300 ft Glaciers! We witnessed 5 incredible calving instances!
The Brunch at the end of the Cruise - This was soooo amazing, so many foods from many countries and desserts from around the world, did I mention muucho Chocolate!
Meetin fellow Cruise Critics in the Michaels Club onboard, set up by Celebrity and Cruise Critic Lady Slipper - Fantastic event! Looking forward to seeing everyone again real soon :)

Overall from start to finish, a very enjoyable cruise. Less

Cabin review: Celebrity Century Concierge Class Vista Deck (9) 9047

The cabin was well laid out and meticulous. The view from the balcony was both private and incredible Our bathroom ceiling exhaust vent hissed excessively but the hotel manager fixed it quickly and efficiently Movies are not free ( unless they are on the normal tv ) we missed the Free Movies that we so enjoyed on Holland America

Port and Shore Excursions


Fantastic first Port of call, surrounded by snow covered mountains. And I believe that we were told that the Zip Line there was the longest in the world! It took you from the top of a cliff to almost beachside! Incredible views!

Savers Tip if you're somewhat fit! Take the city bus to the Mendenhall Glacier park entrance and walk in ( total drive and walk time to the Glacier field 1hr 15mins ) and it will cost you $4.00 Total for the Bus there and back :)

I thought this was the best place to shop in Alaska - only 6% Sales Tax and I believe I was told that the most Sales Tax you would pay there in a single purchase was $60! The Shopping selection was great and soooo close to the pier - we loved making it a shopping day :)
