OVERVIEW

When Celebrity Century first went to sea in
1995, she was considered a large cruise ship.  
Now she is the smallest ship in Celebrity’s fleet
with the exception of Celebrity’s expedition
cruise ship, Celebrity Xpedition.  However,
Century’s size allows her to present the Celebrity
cruise experience in an intimate atmosphere.

Century was the lead ship in a three ship class
that was built for Celebrity by the German
shipyard Meyer Werft.  That yard is known for
producing high quality ships and the Century
class has won many admirers.

Century's two slightly larger younger sisters,
Celebrity Galaxy and Celebrity Mercury have
now left the Celebrity fleet and are sailing for
TUI as Mein Schiff and Mein Schiff II.  The
primary reason that Century still remains with
Celebrity is that in 2006, Celebrity invested
some $55 million to re-furbish and modernize
Century.   This included adding 314 balconies,
14 “Sky Suites” and 10 other cabins.  The public
rooms saw the addition of the Murano Specialty
Restaurant, an innovation that has proved so
popular that the top-of-the-line fine dining venues
on Celebrity’s  Solstice class ships are patterned
after it.

Century offers a premium cruise experience.  
There is considerable focus on the cuisine and on
the service.  Indeed, because the ship does not
have the space to offer all of the choices that are
available on larger ships, there is perhaps an
even greater emphasis on personal service.  The
overall environment is sophisticated and
understated with an extensive collection of
modern art enriching but not dominating the
scene.

Passengers are a mix of new and experienced
cruisers.  There are often a significant number of
Celebrity past guests but since the ship has been
doing quite a few short cruises, it has also
attracted many guests who are new to cruising
and/or Celebrity

After finishing her Caribbean season, Century
will do a summer season in Alaska and then head
through the South Pacific to Australia.

valued at $3.8 million.  The works
are primarily from the second half of
the 20th Century and encompass a
range of styles and media.
