I hope it is better maintained than it was the last time we sailed it.It was run down and very dirty. I know they did a refurb but a friend went about 3 monts ago and he was not impressed to say the least.Good luck!

RE: The new Century (in Celebrity Cruises) by thomas stanton
Tom I am glad to hear the Century has improved. She was so rough before the refurb. that we quit sailing with Celebrity because of the condition's of thier ship's.We really liked the size and layout of the Century and the dinning room service was about the best out there. Tom ...

I sailed on the ship in August 2006. Celebrity put 55 million into the ship and it was absolutely wonderful. If anyone wants to read the latest reviews on the Century they can go here

Adrienne,
We sailed on the Century's sister ship - the Mercury - last September. I think you are in for a very special time on a classy and wonderful ship. Not many on this site seem to be admirers of Celebrity, but I will tell you that they are a pleasure to sail with.

I don't know what your itinerary is, but this ship has lots of deck space just for walking around and enjoying the scenery, with the aft area being especially pleasant. If you have a veranda, all the better. I hope you will write a short review of your experience when you return. Have a great time!

Was on the Century for 13 days on a transatlantic crossing Oct/Nov.07 from Barcelona to Miami.They did a wonderful refurbishing job !One minor shortcoming only on the Century no covered swimming pool ! So if if it rains no swimming in the pool. Also the ship as all the others in the same class has at times a vibration problem in the rear.

I was on the Century back in August of 2004. I really didnt feel that it seemed very old. I loved the layout of the dining room, with the huge windows in the back. It was gorgeous to see the sun setting while having dinner. The ship is a little on the smaller side, but other than by looks, there's a lot to do, so you don't have that "small" impression. I did notice though too, that it had a little bit of a vibration problem at the stern...mostly only when we were pulling out of port. So of course, if you ever have dinner when the ship is scheduled to leave port, be prepared for a little bit of a bumpy meal. But it wasn't anything terrible, so honestly, don't be too concerned with it. The shows, I felt, were really nice. They had a little of everything - magicians, comedians, the Celebrity Singers and Dancers, etc. There's also a small movie theatre aboard, that plays a small variety of movies. I think you'll enjoy yourself.

It pays to remember what you write; someone is paying attention.
