Ship Facts: Celebrity Century Review (by Cruise Critic!) | Celebrity Century Deck Plans
Nice to be back on Celebrity
This was our 15th cruise and third on Celebrity. We love the smaller ships and like the Celebrity Line. We drove to Miami from Charleston, South Carolina, stopping near Daytona Beach a couple of days before and staying in Miami the night before. We got a great deal on a hotel room at La Quinta (near the airport). They allowed us to keep our car there and shuttled us to the port terminal that morning. All we had to do was to grab a taxi at the end of our trip to get back to the hotel. I would recommend this for anyone driving since parking at the port gets very expensive.

The last time that we cruised Celebrity was on the Zenith for a 11 night cruise right before the ship was sold. Embarkation was very quick and we were enjoying lunch by 12:00. We thought that the Century was in great shape. The staterooms, public areas and pool areas were nice. Our favorite spot was at the back of the sip outside the buffet area. We hung there most afternoons since it was less crowded and quieter than the pool area. We also met a couple of crew members that were on the Zenith when we were on that we recognized. That hasn't typically happened on a ship for us. The staff really does a nice job and is very friendly. The food in the dining room was okay, we actually thought that the food in the buffet was better. We loved the pasta bar and the ice cream was very good. We did not eat at Muranos.

The entertainment was okay. The activity staff was very energetic, Kirsty was one of our favorites from the staff. We did Bingo once and gambled a couple of times (yah, no smoking in the casino!). Our kids did a little bit of the kids camp but my son's age group was a bit crazy and he ended up hanging with his sister or us. The teens were all in one group which our daughter did not like and she ended making friends with another 12 year old and doing things with her.

Our ports of call were Ocho Rios and Grand Cayman. We did a tour with Peat Taylor in Ocho Rios, where we climbed the falls, drove through Fern Gully, and visited a school. In Grand Cayman, we did the snuba which was very different and had a lot of fun.

Disembarkation was easy and quick and we were back in our car heading home by 9:20. I would cruise Celebrity again and think that the value was good and the staff wonderful.
