Century, Celebrity Cruises - Pool Deck, Island Café, Hemisphere Lounge, AquaSpa

Spending her winters in the sunny Caribbean, Century's pool deck is a fairly important asset and Celebrity Cruises have thankfully realized that. With an inviting Pool Bar, lots of cushioned deck chairs, four Jacuzzis and a canopied bandstand you will most probably spend more than a few agreeable hours here under the warm Caribbean sun.  

Islands Café

Passing two outdoor grill bars for hamburgers and hot dogs, we reach the entrance to the Islands Café. It is a huge place with 560 seats indoor and another 100 outside on deck, but clever use of colors and etched glass partition makes it feel a little more intimate. The aft section is now used as Sushi Café every afternoon as part of Celebrity's 'Casual Dining Boulevard' concept.

All the way forward is the expansive AquaSpa. Gone is the charming indoor hydrotherapy Pool, making way for a brand new passageway, extended Gym and more treatment rooms. Some even have forward views!

Last stop is the Hemisphere Lounge, Century's night club and observation lounge. New carpets and newly upholstered furniture now give the room a brighter look. So, what's the verdict? After a US$ 55 million makeover that thankfully left her best assets untouched, Celebrity's Century is still luring guests with a feeling of understated elegance. Revitalization accomplished!
