My wife and I just completed this repositioning cruise on Celebrity Century with dear friends and found this cruise to be one of our best if not the best,Yes, the ship is about to change owners and is a bit tired and requires a few upgrades. What made up for all of this was the crew. We could not fault the crew who were always at your service and could not do enough for us. I once heard a Captain say you can have the newest ship in the world with a bad crew and the ship is nothing, have the oldest ship in the world with the best crew and it is a great ship. We think people's expectations are too high.
The meals were of a high standard and our waiters were like family. What more can you ask for. Our cabin attendant kept our room very clean and tidy.
These crew members work for very little pay and rely on their skills and service to compliment their income. Some passengers think they are royalty and treat them as their servants, they are not, they are human beings going about their tasks.
Cabin was very comfortable for 2 adults. TV channels not the best , too many repeats and all news was from USA or BBC.Shower was best size we have encountered after 3 other cruise lines.
