Red face Century 1/22 just got back

We just got back after the best of 6............have not unpacked as we spent three days in FLL..

Lois, if you see this Erol says hi many times. Bravo was fabulous!! Louie Louie the same.. Mark's wonderful but very $$$$$ and we were stuffed into a little table for two that was not very nice.

Hyatt Pier 66 was $$$ but fabulous and so was the restuarant that someone on the boards recommeded many times. I will get my thoughts together in the next few weeks and write to all of you who recommended the best of the best. It was truly a great experience. It was our first with 13 other friends and we are all still friends!!!!!

The food and service on Century was the best ever and I did not find all of those horrible things people look for. At the end of every day, both of our tables....one with 7 and one with 8 that rotated people each night, we had a high and low of the day talk. It was hard for anyone to find a low. What a great time. Little things can take the fun out of it. We did not win in the casino...but that is gambling not a ship thing. We did not need to go there.

I will write more later. But, most of all we got to meet our CC people, and I got to meet my Toni from Canada just as we embarked. After 7 months of writing we actually met as we embarked at the exact same time...

The Sky Suite and Paul the Butler, Shawn the Cabin Steward, Sergay the Waiter and his asst. were fabulous. But again, Erol the bartender was the best with Alex the waiter in so many bars. We thank them all.

Sorry they are leaving for Europe.

Patti

Wecome back, Patti!!!!!! You are so sweet to remember to post!!! I'm glad to hear you seemed to have a fabulous time! WHEW!!!!!

I'm not having luck with Priceline on hotels for April, and am glad to hear that the Hyatt was still good. We have two nights in Fort Lauderdale pre cruise, so I'm anxious for any ideas on food, hotels and activities!

So, who is the group that plays by the pool now (and in the disco too, as I remember)?

I look forward to reading MORE!!!

Hi! I'm home from the Century also. I did not find any CC people, but that was probably my own fault. I want to write a review as a first time cruiser. Should I put it here or on the Review page? Thanks Heather in Alaska

Great news about Century! Glad you had an enjoyable vacation. We'll be on Century on 2/26 and it's nice to see more and more favorable reviews after some of the negative reviews. I hope our vacation is as good as it sounds yours was.

How was the entertainment?

I'll be expecting the same experience as I board Horizon on Feb 11th. Second time on her. When she's gone it may just be returning to Century.

Heather,

Toni and I wished we knew what cabin you were in. We had our party on Saturday AM at 10:00. It was fun and nice to meet everyone. We sure talked about how much we wish we could have found you.

Did you all have a great time?

As for the entertainment by the pool, I really do not remember their names. They played pretty much the same music every day, but after all, it was cruising music...so it was fine. We never did disco. We spent time at the Rende Vous sp? with Erol, much time with friends and at the casino.

The ports were ok, but it is a good thing we had already been to them all before this cruise. San Juan was a waste of time as it is so late and there just isn't much time to do or see anything.

Nassau was really bad. The weather was very bad that day....the rain and winds were terrible and we were late getting off the ship. We took a cab to Atlantis and had to turn around and take a cab back to the ship after only 50 minutes.

St. Thomas and St. Martin were great and the weather was much better.

The best part for us was actually the cruise ship, staff and food. We would consider Celebrity and the Century again. Because we love the SS, it will take a bit longer before the next one. I hope they do take it in for some upgrades, as it is a beauty. It just needs some new bedding, carpeting etc.

Anyway, it was great. I will write more later.

Patti

Hi, glad you had a nice time. We had a "Shawn" cabin attendant several times aboard the Century. Wondered if it is the same guy. He is a rather tall Indian, whose family is in Cozumel, mom in India and dad in USA. We would love to know if it is him, we heard that he was on the Galaxy. We know he loved the Century. We consider him a friend and we have not been able to reach him.

Wow! We are sort of in between the others going on Century - we really loved our prior cruise on this elegant lady, because the staff is absolutely wonderful. We board on 2/19/2005 - and are looking forward to going to St. Thomas and St. Maarten. San Juan - ho hum, and we have been to Nassau before, when we stayed at Sandals.

Thank you for your report, and getting us just revvvved up for our escape from deep snow, fog, frost, and very very cold nights as well as days.

Nanaandpappa, we were on Century last Jan. and our son did some things with the childrens program. He was an "older" pre-teen and it seems that the younger kids were more interested in the children's program.... There was one counselor (Jo Jo) who was his favorite. We're hoping she is still on. Just tell her Cody (the guitar player from Calif.) says "Hi" and that he's hoping to see her April 16th! They certainly kept them busy and they all seemed happy!

By the way, we're almost neighbors...we're in Glendora! Let us know if Jo Jo is still on, if you would!

Have a great time!

Nanette

Kathy and George,

I really don't think it is the same Shawn. Sorry. But he really was wonderful. They were short of help a person on deck 12, so we did not get a chance to visit much with he or Paul, but they were always around when you needed something.

Patti

My husband says he thinks it is the same Shawn. He was fairly tall (5'10") and he was from India. Also, he had a mustache. So maybe I am wrong. I did not notice that much, but if you thought he was great, it could very well be.
