Celebrity Century Down Under
Celebrity Century sailed into Australian waters for the first time last week, marking modern luxury cruise line Celebrity Cruises’ return to Australia after a three-year hiatus. According to industry bible The Berlitz Guide to Cruising & Cruise Ships 2010, Celebrity Century is the region’s highest rated cruise ship for service, dining and accommodation. She easily blends classic ocean liner glamour with modern innovations such as the first ever “ice bar” at sea, a liquid bar counter frozen into rock-hard ice. The 1,800 passenger Celebrity Century has 900 cabins, about half of which have their own private balcony, and a ratio of one staff member to every two guests. All guests on Celebrity Century can enjoy award-wining cuisine, the services of pool butlers, and guests in suites have the added luxury of personal European-style butlers. Celebrity Century impressively features a 9,000 square foot floating spa, museum quality art collections including pieces by Warhol, Picasso and Jasper Johns and a spectacular 1,000-seat, two-storey Celebrity Theatre.
I am a big fan of Celebrity, having sailed from New York to Bermuda on one of her ships, some of the best food and service I have experienced, John.
