With the introduction of the Century in late 1995, Celebrity made their "niche" statement, and they made it clear - this cruise line was going to do things differently. While maintaining a relatively mainstream pricing strategy, the Century's design enabled Celebrity to expand and define their emphasis on quality cuisine and passenger indulgence. Their decision was brilliant - two more "Century-class" ships quickly followed, each confirming that Celebrity's focus was on the mark.

Consider these Century delights:
  • An elegant, two-tiered main dining room featuring menus prepared under the direction of the acclaimed Master Chef Micheal Roux; even the always-casual buffet offers exceptional cuisine!
  • A health spa sanctuary featuring Egyptian ceremonies of milk and ginger; exotic jasmine flower baths and heated, aromatic stone massages; top-of-the line resistance and aerobic/cardio equipment
  • The Celebrity "signature" Champagne and Martini bars. There's even a top-of-the-atrium cigar bar with deep, leather chairs and sofas. Shipboard bars perform well as pre- and post-dinner extensions of the Century's dining experience.
  • Contemporary "eclectic" décor. From glass-walled Hemisphere Lounge high atop the ship to the dramatic, multi-tiered space of the ship's main theater, the décor is fresh and contemporary while maintaining a classic warmth and appeal
The Century pays close attention to the little touches that add up to making a cruise very special - fresh flowers on every dining table, every night; creative placement and lighting of artwork throughout the ship; a subtle mix of distinctive décors - never the in-your-face "themes" as seen on many cruise ships; and perhaps most important - an always attentive yet never obtrusive staff.
