Fifth Celebrity cruise

Sail Date: February 2014
Destination: Eastern Caribbean
Embarkation: Fort Lauderdale (Port Everglades)
This was our fifth Celebrity cruise and our first on the Century. We have taken a total of 31 cruises.

EMBARKCATION: We arrived at 2:00pm and walked right in and got our SeaPass card and boarded immediately.

CABIN: We had Cabin 8190, which was a balcony cabin. Our cabin was very clean and was kept very clean by our Steward. Beach towels always in the room, ice always there, and we asked for an extra blanket and it was immediately delivered. Lots of storage in our cabin.

FOOD: The Island Café was okay. The Sandwich bar was great. The Pizza bar was great. And the Hot Dog/hamburger grill was also great but very busy. The food in the Grand Restaurant was somewhat tired except for the Gnocchi with a four cheese sauce(wonderful) and the Lamb Shanks were out of this world.

Our waiter was outstanding and always worried that we would not be pleased. New varieties of ice cream were offered everyday at the Ice Cream station.

The Brunch was very More lovely and the displays were outstanding and the food far exceeded our hopes.

PORTS: Our ports were good. We have visited these ports before and knew that this would be a very laidback cruise. Beaches are just great.

POPULATION: The guest on this cruise was most likely 70+ years of age and what organized activities there were, were geared to older people. Uck, art auction everyday..what a waste.

PHOTOS: Very expensive and toooooo many taken. Such a waste of paper. These has to be a better way.

SHIP: Overall the Century was very clean and quite lovely. There were several areas in public places that the carpet was a little worn and I agree with others that the furniture could stand some new upholstery. This was a very quite voyage, both with the guest and the ship. We did miss the fact that there were no fresh flowers on the dinner tables, food portions were smaller, and special food request were difficult at the very best. I guess those are cost savings for Celebrity. TV channels very limited.

CASINO: Very well run with a very friendly staff.

DRINKS: Beer $6.88 per bottle and a can of Soda was $2.66. We bought one liter sodas at S&B Liquor store at St Croix for $2.00 and took them back on board. We are not cheap but we thought the drink prices were out of site. Less
