Celebrity Century

5 Night Western Caribbean (Miami Roundtrip)

Sail Date: January 17, 2009

Ship: Celebrity Century

Cabin Type: Balcony

Traveled As: Couple

Reviewed: 9 years ago

Review Summary

The Celebrity Century was a well laid-out, good looking ship. Moving around the ship was easy and straightforward and it was well- appointed with art. Reasonably smooth riding, though there was some rough weather one night and we did have some noticeable roll. There was on-going maintenance (painting balconies, varnishing rails, and the like) but it never interfered with any of our activities.

Ship Experiences

Food and Dining

3 out of 5
We did not eat in Murano, the specialty resturant, but the dining at the main one was alternatingly excellent and mediocre. Of the five nights, two dinners were outstanding, one was passable, and two were avereage. The presentation of food was excellent, but the taste, consistancy, and choices were sometimes lacking; i.e., the cremebrule one night had incredible flavor, but was liquid, literally runny.

Service and Staff

5 out of 5
We never once passed a crew-member that did not stop whatever they were doing to say "Hello." The service was just remarkable, all aspects were wonderful.

Ports Of Call

Ocho Rios, Jamaica

1 out of 5
We found Ocho Rios to be dirty, vastly over-priced, and the people there were pushy. Dunn's Falls was great, but even that was just another series of vendors to avoid and hard-selling "guides" with DVD's or tapes of your "adventure."

Pros: The service was fantastic, simply top-notch

Cons: Jamaca was dirty & pushy, and weather kept us from Grand Cayman

Recommends Celebrity Century? Yes!
