Century - Celebrity Cruises - Rendez-Vous Lounge, Celebrity Theatre

On most ships optimal use is made of the traditional open Promenade Deck, but on Century the outside deck is almost hidden from view. On this ship 'Promenade Deck' is all about indoor entertainment, with a choice of bars, lounges and even a 1,000 seat theater.   

Rendez-Vous Lounge

Aft on Promenade Deck you will find the attractive Rendez-Vous Lounge, serving as the main thoroughfare for the Grand Restaurant. Stretching across the full width of the vessel, the Rendez-Vous Lounge is a large room but hides its volume through ingenuous design. New carpeting and upholstery give a fresher look here.

Directly forward of the Grand Foyer is a series of non-revenue rooms that have apparently been overlooked during the revitalization. There is a card room, a cinema, some conference rooms and the Library still has that ugly worn-out leather sofa in it. The wood paneling make the rooms quite attractive, but we would have expected some tender love and care here.

Impressive two-deck entrance to the Celebrity Theatre

Completely re-upholstered, the 1,000 seat Celebrity Theatre has seen no structural changes during the rebuilding. The mini-atrium at the entrance is still quite spectacular and the previous dull gray color scheme has been thankfully replaced by a more traditional "theater-red'. On all levels the banquette seating is staggered to ensure good sightlines.
