A friend sent us recent pics of Century from her Baltic cruise & it just seems so elegant. The photos of Murano & the wine cellar, dining rooms, martini ice bar, staircases etc were really amazing...That is the direction I hope Celeb continues to talke in general & leaves the ice skating, surfing, rock walls & shopping malls to other lines..... now that we surveved the size of QM2 we might try a larger Celeb ship--provided they are elegant. Does anyone have any ideas how the new Solstice ships will be decorated or laid out?
hcat - I'm not yet sure what Celebrity plans to do with the three ordered big ships (112,000 tons each, I think) but let's hope that they stick to their 'elegant' cruise model that seems to be working wonders for them. I'm sorry, but I see no need and have no desire to go on a cruise ship with a shopping mall or a Johnny Rocket's hamburger place or a Baskin Robbin's ice cream or a silly skating rink, etc. I can stay home for that. Perhaps those ships are great for families and kids, but since I don't have children and don't want to spend a week at sea with them, Celebrity is perfect for me. Good thing there are lots of cruise choices for lots of different kinds of people, but I say, long live Celebrity and their upper-middle class, leisurely paced style.

tnx for the url, I seen it, but it does not show much how the ship really looks like. I hoped that somebody has pics of the ship after the refurbishment, specific from the cabins.
It is our first time we sail Celebrity. We have seen the Century from the outside in our own port this summer.
Oh well, april is a long way from now, and I am sure some cruisemates from the groupscruise at New Year have lots of pics to share.
I am just very curious
