Itinerary: Western Caribbean
We just returned from cruising on the Century and had a wonderful trip. I had cruised a few times with Royal Caribbean, once with Holland American and once with Princess and found Celebrity the best overall.
The Century is a mid-size ship. Having cruised on two mega ships with different lines I found I liked the mid-size ship better. There were very short lines for food and less traffic issues in the main areas.
The cuisine was the highlight of the ship. The food was the best I’ve had cruising.
The ship is clean and comfortable. They provide several extra touches such as padded lounge chairs, robes in the room and we especially appreciated the fresh drinking water served daily in our room in a silver-serving tray.
The service was outstanding and entertainment good. The only down side I would say which was really not a big deal is that the pools are very small and there aren’t many places to sit near the pool because they fill up so quickly. I’ve appreciated separate pool areas for adults vs. children on other ships that provided larger pools and sitting areas.
In regards to the ports of call we loved them all and would do them all again because they are all beautiful and different. Don’t let the bad press about Jamaica deter you from enjoying this port. We booked a four hour excursion with Phil Lafayette on-line which included a city tour, tubing and Dunns River Falls. By booking an excursion we completely avoided the hacklers.
Great ship and stops…. You’ll be sure to enjoy…
