First Cruise booked: very excited!
Hi everyone,
Today I booked the first cruise for my partner and myself. I have never fancied cruising in the past as I had the idea there would be lots of noisy organised games and uncomfortable accommodation. However, this week I found myself reading about the Celebrity Century cruise in Alaska. It sounded great, so after more reading and discussion, we are booked for September 2012. We're very excited and would love to read about others experiences of the ship :)

Congratulations on booking your first cruise! You booked a great one. Alaska is one of those places where it's easier and, many times, more efficient to go by ship. It's certainly more beautiful than any other way.

You'll have a great cruise on the Century, with good food, service, entertainment and ambiance. There's usually an Alaska specialist onboard, who will get on the Public Address system when the ship is sailing, to give everyone standing on the outdoor decks some information about glaciers, the geology of Alaska, history, etc.

I don't think you'll be disappointed in either the ship or the destination.

AnnD2- Welcome. Congratulations on booking your first cruise. I've sailed on the Century twice and really like that ship. It's a beautiful ship. It's not too big and not to small. I did my two cruises on the Century in the Baltic. It should be a nice sized ship for Alaska.

Hi AnnD2, welcome to CruiseReviews! Congratulations on your upcoming cruise! I haven't sailed on the Century, but have sailed with Celebrity. I do not think you'll be disappointed at all. In fact, you'll probably end up like the rest of us, addicted to cruising:)

Best wishes!
