Celebrity is considered a “Premium” cruise line and started with smaller ships and personalized service. The feel of the cruise line is stylish and fancy without feeling stuffy. They are known for great spas and high end dining.
We sailed on the Century back in 2007 and while the ship was older we loved the service, food, and overall ambiance of the ship. It never felt crowded and there was an overall calm ambiance focused on relaxation, but also fun. We had such a nice cruise that we sailed again a few years later in 2009 on the same ship, same itinerary. Our next sailing on the Century wasn’t quite as nice, we felt the food and service was a little less than our first experience and the ship felt “tired”.
Celebrity retired the Century just a couple years later so we are due for another try and I would like to experience one of the newer Millennium Class Ships, look for an update as the Galapagos is on my list!
