Celebrity Century for Families

Editor Rating
Families
3.0
The Fun Factory, the actual play facility for kids, is a windowless, mid-ship destination, unlike those found on newer vessels featuring windows and adjacent deck space for splash pools and such. Programs for children ages 3 - 11 are available every day from 9 a.m. to 10 p.m. The Fun Factory opens a half hour before arriving in port for children whose parents depart before 9 a.m. for a Celebrity Cruises Shore Excursion. A trained youth staff supervises games and activities such as karaoke, puppeteering, theme parties and movies.

Celebrity's program is divided into several age groups: Toddler Time (under 3 years), Shipmates (3 - 5), Cadets (6 - 8), Ensigns (9 - 11) and Teens (12 - 17). Toddlers are permitted in Fun Factory only with parental supervision. Both Shipmates -- who must be diaper-free -- and Cadets must be signed in and out of the Fun Factory by someone 18 years or older. Ensigns can sign themselves in and out of programs -- some based in Fun Factory, others in venues around the ship -- until 10 p.m. Teens can enjoy their own hangout, X-Club, which features electronic games, sports activities and late-night, teen-only dances. Youth counselors host all activities in the teen facility, which boasts dark paneled walls and 1960's streamlined couches and chairs (a little James Bond modish).

Activities are held, on sea days anyway, morning, afternoon and evening, and include, for instance, "partycrafts" and "family scavenger hunt" for the Shipmates, "Super Hero Intensive Training" for Cadets, "Scavenger Quest" and a talent show for Ensigns, and "Dodgeball Insanity" for teens.

For-fee activities are scheduled when the ship is in port and each evening. These include lunch and dinner parties, and slumber parties. Fees are $6 per hour, with immediate surcharges for late pick-up. Group babysitting is available in the Fun Factory on port days from noon until 2 p.m. and in the evening from 10 p.m. to 1 a.m. for a fee of $6 per hour per child. In-cabin babysitting for children 12 months or older is subject to availability. Fee is $19 per hour for up to three children in the same family.
