Celebrity Century
Celebrity Cruises

Built in 1995

Occupancy: 1,814 (double capacity)
Tonnage:  71,545
Length: 815 ft
Beam: 105.6 ft
Draught: 25 ft
Cruise Speed: 21.5 kts
Inaugural Date: Dec 20, 1995


Celebrity Century underwent an extreme makeover in 2006. Gone are the banks of Sony televisions that appeared somewhat techno-futuristic in 1995 when Century entered the Celebrity fleet. Also missing is the spa's thallasotherapy pool. In their place, Celebrity Century has a cleaner, sleeker, more refined appearance.

In just five weeks, a whopping 314 balconies were added during Celebrity Century's makeover—a record for an existing cruise ship—along with the addition of ten new staterooms (from inside to verandah categories) and fourteen new suites.

While the thallasotherapy pool was removed from the spa during renovation, the Persian Garden with its Turkish steam room, infrared and Finnish saunas, trio of tropical showers, and serene relaxation area was added.

Another welcome addition is the aft-facing Sunset Bar beneath a sail-type canopy where tapas and appetizers are available with cocktails at sunset.

Century features a $3.8 million dollar museum-quality contemporary art collection that includes works by Andy Warhol and modern sculptures.

The specialty-dining Murano Restaurant features tableside cooking, carving, and flambé, where the menu is as impressive as the Murano glass chandeliers handcrafted in Venice.

Century’s Cova Café di Milano features specialty coffees and chocolates from Cova of Milan, Italy.

Nestled in an alcove adjacent to the AquaSpa is the AquaSpa Café where the emphasis is on light and healthy dishes.

The rich tones and deep, welcoming chairs of Michael's Club make it the ideal place to savor a single-malt scotch or after-dinner drinks.

The letter “X” on Century’s funnel is the Greek letter for “C” and stands for Chandris, the family who founded Celebrity Cruises.

The Martini Bar, with its icy bar top offers 20 variations of the famous libation. Chill out with friends before dinner in this trendy hot spot. 

The two-deck Grand Restaurant on Century is reminiscent of the Normandie’s dining room with its grand staircase for making an “entrance” to dine.

For passengers who cannot resist, Century’s fresh-baked pizza can be delivered to your stateroom in an insulated carrier, ala shoreside pizzerias.
