Sail Date: Feb 2015

We have recently returned from a 2 week cruise to Asia and sadly we were disappointed . We knew that the century was being sold very soon and had read on cc that she was becoming a bit tired but we were not expecting to have maintenance taking place all around. Obviously some degree of care has to be done but the amount taking place daily was extreme to say the least, if it doesn't move paint it or varnish it seemed the order of the day in fact on several occasions my husband had to warn people that handrails etc were wet as there was no warning signs. Apparently for our comfort and convenience is was thought ok to close half of the island restaurant so that they could lay new carpet why couldn't they have done that during the night or at least while in one of the ports. The worst incident was when they closed half of the sun deck adjoining the island restaurant putting all the smoking and non smoking tables together and then proceeded to with a very big machine to sand the deck at LUNCH TIME it took 4 complaints from my husband before it was finally stopped. We understand that all this work was being done because the CEO was boarding the ship for one of her last cruises, we hope he has a lovely time at the expense of our holiday and not a cheap one either. It has to be said that all the bar, restaurant , butlers (than you Kimberley) and housekeeping were all wonderful and were always very helpful and pleasant its a pity this cant be said for the officers who seemed to have a don't care attitude. The food in the restaurant was without exception very good at both breakfast and lunch . We have for the last 3 years cruised with Azamara there is no comparison Azamara are streets ahead its a shame we didn't choose there cruise instead but the celebrity dates suited us better . We had a sky suite which was fine it had a lovely large balcony with a table 2 chairs and 2 loungers a shame that the cushions were filthy as were most of the windows on the ship in fact our neighbour said the windows in the gym you couldn't see out appalling. When we returned from the cruise I emailed Celebrity with our comments as yet I have had no reply very poor customer service.
