Cruise ships have suffered a spate of unfortunate events of late, but for every cruise that ends badly, there are hundreds of cruises that reward their travelers with a wonderful vacation. Veteran cruiser BC_DisneyGeek enjoyed just such a wonderful cruise to Alaska on the Celebrity Century and is going to share his adventures with us over the next few weeks. ~~Rick
In May 2013 I cruised to Alaska on the Celebrity Century, departing from Canada Place in Vancouver:
I cheated and took this photo of my ship, the Celebrity Century later, on a sunnier day:
The actual weather on the day of my departure was rainy, but the weather would clear up for the duration of the cruise:
We were one of three ships departing that day, which caused a delay as it took a while for everyone to clear customs:
Sailing under the Lions Gate Bridge, the same view I enjoyed from the Disney Wonder with the MiceChatters just nine months prior:
The Century launched in 1995 and was refurbished in 2006. The ship looked great overall:
The on board movie selection did leave something to be desired:
The movie theater was not really a theater:
There’s a lot of eating on a cruise, so I should have visited this area:
A cold citrus soup:
The food was excellent:
I liked the old-school theater with tables for drinks at every seat:
I’ll tease you with a bit of the view . . .
I’ll be back next week with a deeper look at my most excellent adventure.
