Ship Facts: Celebrity Century Review (by Cruise Critic!) | Celebrity Century Deck Plans
the Century still a class of its own !!!!
We just got back from a wonderful repositioning cruise on the Century on its voyage from the Baltic to the Med. What attracted us were the unusual ports: Antwerp- Le Havre-Dover-La Coruna-Lisbon-Cadiz-Gibraltar- Palma de Mallorca.

We had already sailed on the Century twice. Well, the Century is still in wonderful shape ( except for the noisy engines especially when they start!!), it keeps the flair of the older cruise liners ! The service is wonderful and the cabins are nicer than the Millenium class since they have been redone. Everything was amazingly clean and in top shape. However the Century does not provide the Entertainment venues that the newer ships offer, if the ship is the attraction for you, the Century is not for you. For this cruise it was the destinations.

The Century just got their new menus and they were as good as expected. The service is still the same, no cutbacks there, we did have an issue at our first table but we were rapidly transferred and the new maitre d' Alex really took great care of us. We went to the Murano once and it is worth every penny.... The nightly shows had excellent entertainers but they kept bringing them back every night in different combinations ! Also the musicians around the ship were really awful with the exception of the Celebrity Orchestra... It was not possible to dance and also the bridge games were not organized as usual in other Celebrity cruises. The dressing code has been relaxed, too much !!! Blue jeans and t-shirts in the dining room should not be accepted. It is just not up to the elegance of the place and of the meal.

We organized our outings every day but be warned that guest services do not know much about these ports and be well prepared. The most they can do is give out a map.

All in all we would go on the Century again anytime !
