Sail Date: July 2013
Destination: Alaska
Embarkation: Vancouver
This was our 15th cruise to Alaska. Last year we sailed the Century and enjoyed it so much we booked it again. We took our granddaughter for her fifth cruise, first one without the parents. Embarkation was awesome! We got there at 10:45 and there were no lines. We are Elite so we waited in the Elite area and were on board by 11:10. Lunch as usual in the buffet, food was good. At 1 PM our room was ready. When we opened the door, it was VERY warm. When we saw the stateroom attendant we told him about the heat and he didn't seem surprised. He said he would get maintenance on it. The thermostat was set at 60F and it was about 78 in the room.

We had first seating in the dining room. We were given table 590 under the stairs with very little light. We asked the Matre D if we could be moved as I couldn't read the menu. He said yes and didn't ask our room number. The next morning at breakfast I asked again. This time he took our room number and we were moved to another area of the More dining room which was much nicer. The service in the dining room as well as the selections were excellent.

Milos the Naturalist was amazing. His lectures had everyone laughing and no one fell asleep as I've witnessed on previous cruises. He was AWESOME. The comedian and violinist Doug Cameron were also very good. The stage productions were professional and well executed. Our granddaughter loved the "Fun Factory" and I like the fact they would take your children for dinner and you could enjoy Murano without the children.

Disembarkation was so smooth. No lineups and we were right off the ship. The ship cleared customs and we didn't have to stand in the customs lineup to have our passport stamped. Canada Customs are really streamlining their process.

Great cruise, great memories and we will go again next year! Celebrity is an excellent cruise line and although the Century is old, she is beautiful and classy. Less

Cabin review: 099075

9075 has a heating/cooling problem. We could feel the air coming out of the vent very slowly. We kept the lights off and managed to get it down to 72 which was really warm to sleep in. DO NOT BOOK THIS ROOM!
