Ship Facts: Celebrity Century Review (by Cruise Critic!) | Celebrity Century Deck Plans
Christmas on the High Seas
My partner Chris and I planned this cruise to celebrate our 10th anniversary and to have a nice relaxing holiday. All in all, the trip was fantastic and we couldn't think of a better way to spend the holidays!! Sailing out of the Syndey Harbour, flanked by the Harbour Bridge and the Opera House, made for an amazing sailaway....ranks right up there with sailing out of NYC!

While there are some minor areas of concern, the Century is in great ship for being the oldest in the Celebrity fleet. The staff and crew keep the ship immaculate! There was always someone cleaning, scrubbing and polishing.

Everything from the shows to the food were top notch. We ate in the Grand Dining Room every evening and were never disappointed. The Lamb shanks were enormous and they melted in your mouth. While we didn't dine in Murano because we enjoyed the Grand so much, we heard from others that is was the best meal they have ever had, anywhere.

The one thing that stood out on this cruise was the staff. From the Captain of the ship to the room stewards everyone was so friendly.

While we loved all the ports of call, the stops in Dunedin, Akaroa & the Milford Sound were by far the best!! The NZ countryside is stunning! Our beautiful day in the Sounds of southern NZ was the highlight of the trip. The captain guided our ship into the Milford Sound and even took the tip of the ship into one of the waterfalls that cascaded from the snow covered peaks that surrounded us. The captain also spun the ship 360 degrees twice to allow for pictures of the entire sound. It was a picture perfect day that we will soon not forget!

I cannot think of any reason to not sail the Century again. The great service, outstanding food and great company of fellow CCer's made it a great vacation!!
