Hello All !

I am back, boo hoo...just kidding. We had a great time and LOVE the Century. Old time cruising feel, really beautiful ship, kept very clean, crew is one of the best ever ! Just a few notes, will do a full review very soon. The dining on this ship was the best ever ! Our waiter Victor was AMAZING ! His assistant Jackson was very quiet, but good. Ate at Murano one night, well worth the price. But the dining room food was Very, Very Good, I never ordered anything but Victor's suggestions, and he never failed. The weather was cool, but warmer than Michigan ! No rain, also a big plus. Our Concierge class room was small, but had some very big pluses (sp?) the balcony was bigger than a standard balcony, full size table for dining, nothing better ! Balcony door open every night !! Our room stewards were wonderful, polite, always smiling ! Being on Celebrity was very different from Royal Caribbean, but in a good way for us. Low key, not alot going on, but very classy. No one yelling at me to yell at them to prove I was having a good time. The non-smoking policy was very much appreciated, never smelt smoke once ! The Casino was smoke free ! Very enjoyable, plus I had a little luck too ! Missed the Caribbean Stud table, no more, but Roulette was fun and profitable. Our stops were Key West, and I just visited with my Darling Brother who lives there for the last 10 years, and Grand Cayman where we had a Fantastic experience with "Stingray Sailing!" Only 24 passengers on a small Catamaran, great inter-action with the crew, very family feel, and terrific time with the Sting Rays, "Isabelle" the Stingray was pregnant and very friendly, let everyone hold her, kiss her, and she had a big crush on our Guide Mark, adorable. The embarkation was very smooth, the disembarking was even better, just walked right off the ship, not one line, our bags came on a conveyor belt and took about twenty minutes, but we were at the airport before 9am, in plenty time for a 10:20am flight, I know, I know cut it close, but we landed in Detroit at 1:12pm ! Any questions, happy to answer ! Thanks to everyone for their suggestions and tips, helped make a very enjoyable cruise, honeymoon and 50th Birthday Celebration !!
