If you are Diamond in C@A you will get Elite on Celebrity which again is a separate line. If you do book make sure whoever you book with gets you a Captain Club number and it is associated with your reservation.
You should also be aware that Century is going into drydock early next year for a three week major overhaul. Because of this cabin classifications and numbers may change. The exact changes have not been announced but the drydock is scheduled for I believe Feb. and March prior to Alaska season.
Since it is so popular I believe Celebrity will be putting Aqua Class cabins on Century during the drydock as well as Blu restaurant which replaces the MDR for Aqua passengers. Prices are usually a little above concierge but are worth it.
Thanks for the heads up re dry dock. It may be worth the $100 to go Concierge just in case they change the cabins in dry dock b/c they wouldn't down grade me, would they? I don't care about the fruit or canapes and would get priority boarding as Elite but I wouldn't want my cabin to be moved forward or aft, I really like mid-ship.
