The ship was clean, well laid out, and had all the typical amenities. Our Vista deck cabin was excellent: we had NO noise problem and could barely feel the engine.

Pros: Overall experience excellent

Cons: Shore excursions

Recommends Celebrity Century? Yes!

Ship Quality
Decor was up-to-date, all facilities were immaculate.
Food and Dining
Dining was outstanding-best of any cruise. The range of food, quality and presentation, and the attention of the wait staff in the dining room made each meal a pleasure. The cafeteria on deck 11 was of course, not the same, but provided a wide range of food throughout the day.
Cabin / Stateroom
Quiet, clean.
Service and Staff
You know that you weren't the only passengers they have over the months, but you received attention as if you were. Always pleasant and accommodating. Makes such a difference.
Puerto Quetzal, Guatemala
Went to Antigua which was a fine old city with a church on each block. Best part? You were left alone to explore and do your own thing. Volcanoes were impressive.
Puntarenas, Costa Rica
Rain forest. The more local tours of the river and train are very touristy and is much better to explore the rain forest.
Colon, Panama
Great Panama City tour was useful, but like most others far to much oriented toward herding travelers to shopping areas. Passengers are perceived as traveling wallets.
Cartagena, Colombia
Cabo San Lucas, Mexico
Was a short visit. Desert, rocks, hill sides with condos, azure ocean, excellent beaches.
Acapulco, Mexico
Hired a cab that took us all over the place for a very reasonable amount of $40 for 3 hours. You can do this in most ports and if you are even slightly adventurous, this is cheaper and better than organized tours. Saw the crowded old parts of the city with colors and smells you would never find along tourist routes.
