First time cruisers
Embarkation: Los Angeles
We mainly ate in the main dining room and had a great respect for the staff who served us, who were extremely busy, but always polite, charming and courteous. In particular we were impressed with Vera, who seated us promptly each evening and met our table requests when she was able to do so, assistant waiters Edgar and Rina were both fantastic and we enjoyed talking to them both. Our favourite waiter was Iman and his recommendations were spot on. He also showed concern when my husband ordered the breaded veal as a previous guest had found it tough, and offered to exchange the meal if it wasn't to my husbands taste, which was we considered excellent service. We very much enjoyed the variety of food, everything in the evening was served promptly and was hot and tasty. Due to the classic beverage package we had our wine by the glass and did not purchase it by the bottle. Breakfast at times was slow in particular if you ordered an omelette or eggs, however, we were in no hurry so this did not concern us apart from the morning we had an early excursion so we are in Islands Cafe instead. We found the cafe food to be fresh but not particularly hot so did not chose to eat there again.
We attended some of the evening entertainment, some of which was a bit Butlins, but we did enjoy the comedian and the juggler. We spent our other evenings enjoying the pianist in cova cafe and the singers. We enjoyed all the ports of call, but felt that the tenders were a bit overcrowded at times. The only tour we did not enjoy was the classic motor tour of catalina island. We were subjected to 31/2 hours in a 1952 bus with no air conditioning in temperatures in the high 80's. It was dusty and not very scenic especially if you were sat on the iffy hand side where you could not see anything of interest. All in all we thoroughly enjoyed our time on Celebrity Century and have booked a Norwegian Fjords cruise for next year on Celebrity Eclipse. Less
Cabin review: 1015
Spotlessly clean but tired and in need of a few minor repairs to the sink and hinge on the wardrobe. Paint was flaking on the balcony. Otherwise no complaints and the issues raised were dealt with promptly
