"LIVE" from the*NEW*Century 01/27/07
 
Hello everyone. . . I will be heading to Florida today, for a Voyage on the NEW Revitalized Century.

As some of you may have heard, I was on Century last year, just before the major revitalization (March '06) Celebrity has call this " The Most Extensive Refurbishment to Date "

I can't wait to see how things have changed. I will be providing daily comments, and daily photos . I hope to be able to show extensive "Before" and "After" pics of the new Areas. I am hoping to have a reliable connection while on board.(Wi-Fi will be available in all cabins)

There have been many positive reviews about the new Century, and I hope to be able to share the same excitement. I have posted several "LIVE" trip reports in the past, and as some of you may know.... Every day can bring a new experience while cruising.

So relax, sit tight and remember to "Tune In" during my cruise on the beautiful new Celebrity Century.

I will be boarding the AutoTrain later today and should arrive in Florida tomorrow morning.

Have a great time Radio! We are on the 5 night Key West - Grand Cayman Route in April. Could you find out the menus for us? We are debating going to Murarno's or not.

Andy January 25th, 2007 05:05 PM

Hi Everyone !

I am on this sailing as well. I have seen Radio do this type of feature before, and Radio does a great job of it. As long as we have good internet access, it should be a lot of fun.

I will try to post as well, but if not, you will be in great hands with Radio, whom I look forward to meeting !

Radio, have a safe trip down to South Florida. Bring a jacket, it is chilly today. The good news is, the weather is supposed to be excellent this weekend.

Host Andy,

If you see Dru (cruise director) or Melanie (future cruise mgr.) working on board....would you please get word to Melanie that I am sailing on Feb 5th. I sent her an email weeks ago but haven't heard back from her!!!

Hope you have a fantastic voyage and great weather!!!

Many Thanks,

Thank you, Andy. It's only 2 degrees here in RI right now, so I couldn't envy you more!

wdblake January 26th, 2007 12:25 PM

Could you get menus please?
 
We would like to know what is on the dinner menus for this cruise. I believe you can request a menu be brought to your cabin. If you could post these it would really help me and the other people who are trying to coordinate when to book the Murano restaurant.
Have a great cruise!!!

madelinerose January 26th, 2007 01:48 PM

Andy, got a chuckle from this! Radio lives very close to me and the high in Baltimore today will be 25 degrees!!! Florida will seem like a sauna. ;)

Radio, have another wonderful cruise! So looking forward to your daily posts...they're always wonderful.

Hello everyone ! I finally made it to South Florida ....A Little late though. The Auto Train was almost 3 hours late, and then I had some traffic troubles on the way to Miramar. I made it to the hotel at 5:45.

The weather is very nice, though. It is a sunny day, and the temps are warm 70f (well..at least to me the temps are warm).

The Hilton Garden Inn in Miramar is very nice. It is located with several other new hotels in a huge business park, along with Royal Caribbean Cruise Lines offices, and Carnival Cruise Lines Offices.

I'm sure I will retire early tonight...It has been a long travel day. I am looking forward to meeting Host Andy, and the other Cruise Critic members that will be sailing with me.

I used my Starbucks Locator to find out that the closest Starbucks is only 2 miles from the Hotel...So tomorrow at 6AM I will be taking a short drive. ;)

I plan on heading to the pier at about 11AM...and should be parked and on board Century by 11:45- Noon. I will be meeting with the other Cruise Critic Members at the Mast Bar for Sailaway, and I plan to post comments about the day tomorrow evening.

Here are a few pics from today ! ! The are many more pics on my Cruise Page...Just Click below. Thanks for tuning in !
