Century image
My family and I booked our cruise on the Celebrity Century roughly a year in advance, and we were expecting a top notch voyage. We even went overboard in terms of spending, spoiling ourselves by booking a balcony.

Unfortunately, we were disappointed quickly upon getting onboard the ship though, as the room smelled of smoke and also has a stale stench to it. Guest services promised they would help us once we set sail, but this help did not come. Instead, I was left trying to get away from the smell any chance I could, sleeping with covers over my face most nights.

This made for a very long 9-day cruise, even opening the balcony doors did not help much. The trip was expensive, and the only thing guest services could do to try and appease us was give us a free bottle of champagne, this simply did not cut it.

In terms of the concierge service, there was not much special attention given to us. In the entire 9-day cruise, we did not get one single towel animal.

We requested early dinner times, but we were not accommodated with these requests unfortunately.

On a more positive note though, the table staff were the highlight of our trip. If you ever sail on the Celebrity Century, please ask for Avanash and Jule at dinner.

We celebrated a birthday dinner, and got a great tour of Hubbard Glacier, making the most out of the trip that we could. Unfortunately, this did not allow me to get past the unfortunate issues we had with the cabin.

negative of cruise Negatives of Cruise
For this long of a cruise, I would have appreciated a room which seemed a bit more fresh, with a little more attention to detail from the concierge. It was not an inexpensive room to say the very least.

I would not reccomend this cruise to others.

I think this cruise is suitable for Couples.
