North to Alaska on Celebrity Century

Sail Date: September 2012
Destination: Alaska
Embarkation: Vancouver
We began our Alaskan Cruise on the Century in Vancouver... actually almost didn't begin our cruise as one of the groups passport went onboard with the luggage. Port & Cruise Ship personnel were wonderful and though it was stressful, we made it onboard with MINUTES to spare!

First of all, let me state that the Century is an older, smaller ship. In spite of her age, she is lovingly cared for. Rich woods highlight the areas. We enjoyed that it is a 'cozy' ship. It was easy to become comfortable with the layout.

Cabin: Our stateroom was a Sky Suite, Deck 12. The room set-up was roomy and comfortable. The balcony was HUGH! Jacuzzi tub in bathroom wonderful, especially after the Zipline experience! The service provided by our butler, Albino, and room attendant left nothing to be desired. They were always near by and so cheerful in their assistance. Upholstery on couch and chairs needs updating, rather worn.

Dining Room: Lovely setting, varied menu, tasty More food and great service. We had early dining and our servers, Santosa & Marina pampered us. The food in the buffets was enjoyable. The hamburgers at the poolside grill were yummy. Service at the brunch was horrid. We were herded like cattle to tables and waited 30 minutes for a cup of coffee, with nary a refill offered. The food was very good and so many choices.Guest Services: This was the only downside. Those we spoke with were very very difficult to understand. The personnel seemed uncomfortable with the English language. We ended up always going down in person, and even then it was a struggle.

We will choose to cruise on the Century again, no question. Less

Port and Shore Excursions


The Zipline was awesome. It was hard to believe how high up the mountain we 'zipped' from, views wonderful. It's a not-to-miss experience. Shopping was great also. Some lovely Alaskan-handicrafted items.

We 'walked' the hilly streets of Juneau in the pouring rain & saw the Governors Mansion. Visited the Juneau & State museum. I recommend them both. Good Day :)

Duck Tour

Enjoyable tour, much more to Ketchikan than we knew from previous visit. Take the Duck tour first, then walk.
