Celebrity Century Review
About This Ship
Cruise Ship Overview
The only remaining Century-class vessel in the Celebrity Cruises fleet, Celebrity Century was introduced as the first of the class in 1995. Summer months find Celebrity Century sailing the waters of Alaska from Vancouver, British Columbia; repositioning voyages take her through the Hawaiian Islands. She also offers a series of round-trip cruises from San Diego to Hawaii and transits through the Panama Canal between San Diego and Fort Lauderdale for the remainder of the winter season.
Although quietly elegant, Celebrity Century has an eclectic air, due in part to the fine collections of modern and classical art displayed throughout public rooms. A 2006 refit added a stunning specialty restaurant, an ice-topped martini bar, 14 suites, and 10 staterooms (both inside and outside), not to mention 314 verandas—the most ever added to an existing cruise ship at that time.
Celebrity Century has facilities for children and teens, but adults fare much better on board with a spectacular spa and sophisticated lounges dedicated to a variety of tastes. The dining room is nothing short of gorgeous. Overall, the first impression is that this is a fine resort hotel that just happens to float.
