Thanks to all who replied to my question.
My husband & I almost booked a back to back Western & Eastern Carib. on the Celebrity Century.
On one of the other boards, a suggestion was made to perhaps try another cruise line and ship just for variety. The fact that Century would have the exact same menus and entertainment both weeks made us review our original choice.
As a result we have booked the Ryndam for the Western Carib. itinerary and will stay with the Century for the Eastern Carib. itinerary. We leave on Nov. 25th & Dec.2nd out of Fort Lauderdale. This is our way of celebrating our 25th wedding anniversary!
I'd also like to mention how much I enjoy the cruisemates message boards. I appreciate the friendly, informative and open minded atmosphere that is maintained.
