Ship Facts: Celebrity Century Review (by Cruise Critic!) | Celebrity Century Deck Plans
Great cruise, but no Carnival
My family and I traveled on Celebrity Century for the first time this past December. Overall this was a great cruise filled with many memories. The amount of staff was amazing and they were always right there if you needed a drink or have any questions, without being pushy. My Grandmother traveled with us and at the age of 80 she had no problems getting around and definitely did not have to worry about children bumping into her, as would be the case on other big cruise lines.

Food- The food was quite a disappointment after previously traveling on a Carnival ship. The buffet was the same thing day in and day out and the formal dinners were bland. The staff made sure to inform us we could send any of it back and try again but we just made do and definitely had no problem getting full. The desserts were horrible and I opted out every night. The buffet lines barely had any wait and the food was always fresh. Room service was terrible and never got the order right. We would arrange room service to bring us coffee every morning and set for it to come around 8:30-9 a.m. but it always came two hours early. They call first in the morning to make sure you answer the door, so I always got up, got the food and went back to sleep because it arrived way earlier than needed thus resulting in cold coffee and old food. If you are in the mood for pizza definitely order it through room service, as it is fresh and better quality than the buffet. Be prepared for the food to not show up or take over an hour though, most times I would order the food and call them right after to make sure it went through. The spa buffet is definitely where it is at. The food is fresh and healthy and in a more relaxing atmosphere.

Beverage Package- The beverage package is definitely worth it. We all went with the classic package and were more than happy with it. You have to be VERY vocal with the bartenders and make sure they only make drinks that are allowed in the package. After the first day we made friends with a few of the bartenders and they would make us any drink and just charge it as if it were under the classic package. You can definitely get away with sharing a beverage package too. Make friends with a bartender and they will allow you to use your friends card to swipe and get the free drink with no hesitation. The only problem with this is you have to be more careful and make sure no other workers see this happening but most of them do not mind.

Entertainment- My family enjoyed the entertainment, the comedian was hilarious and all of the shows were just what you would expect when being on a ship. You have to take it for what it is worth and just enjoy them, the performers obviously love what they are doing which made the shows more enjoyable.

We did have many problems with billing and found ourselves standing in line to fix it almost every day. They were more than helpful and fixed the problem without any questions but it became very annoying when we received the notes after just fixing it. Be careful with the cleaning staff as they "accidentally" walked into our room a few times without knocking and asked to come in with us girls when we were just grabbing an item, he wanted to tell us what he was going to clean each day which we found a bit sketchy. Overall this cruise was amazing and we had no regrets. The rooms were very clean and had more storage space than you could ever imagine. The ship had more of an adult feel and there was hardly ever anyone swimming in the pool as we hardly ever saw any children.
