Winter escape at sea

Sail Date: January 01, 2011

Reviewed: 6 years ago

Traveled As: Couple

Room Type: Inside

The crew was wonderful and there were plenty of them. The ship is smaller which gave it a homier feel but there was still plenty of elbow room. The ship is older and although it has been refurbished there are places it is beginning to show.

Pros: smaller ship

Cons: size of stateroom

Recommends Celebrity Century? Yes!

Cabin / Stateroom
This stateroom seemed much smaller than any other we've ever had. I think it is time to replace the carpeting and do some regrouting. The ship was very clean.
We were fortunate enough to be onboard when comedian James Stephens III was performimg (yay!). This bumped the rating up a notch. Otherwise it was pretty typical cruise fare.
Ship Quality
It was easy to get around on this ship. Cleanliness was a priority.
Food and Dining
We enjoyed the dining room a couple of nights but it is a bit too stuffy for our tastes when we are vacationing. The food is magnificent. I like that even at the buffets, they serve you. It keeps things a bit more sanitary. We loved that they did fresh stir fry, pasta, omelets, sandwiches and more to order while you waited. The variety and quality was amazing.
Service and Staff
Cruise ships have the market cornered on service. Nobody does it better and this ship was no exception. They will do whatever they can to make you happy.
Coxen Hole, Roatan, Bay Islands, Honduras
Typically we enjoy exploring on our own in port. Unfortunately the people there have not learned that begging and badgering will not get them far with tourists. Going into Coxen Hole on your own is and adventure to say the least. A lot of children and poor people are being exploited. We witnessed them as well as vendors literally being beaten back from the port area with sticks. There are plenty of police and military in the streets but it was all a bit unnerving. An excursion package through the ship (which we never do) or stay in the port area would be my best advice.
Cozumel, Mexico
I have been to Cozumel several times. They are continually improving the town & shopping areas. There are lots of good local restaurants. The vendors can be pushy but know when to back off. The ruins and beaches are worth a look.
