I'm a long time cruiser considering his first cruise on Celebrity. We are looking at a 12 day Western Med RT from Barcelona on Celebrity Century in June 2010.
I trying to decide between Concierge Class and a Sky Suite.
SO: Other than the obvious difference in cabin size between the two classes. What are the other differences? Service, amentities, freebies?
Also the web site says most Sky suites have enormous verandas (142 sq. ft.) with some much smaller ones (69 sq. ft.) Does anyone know which Sky suites have the smaller verandas? I want to avoid booking those.
I tried calling Celebrity for these answers, but got an apparent newbie on the phone who knew less about the ship than I did!
Thanks in advance for your assistance.

I do not suggest booking a "Century Suite or Sunset Veranda" on Century. The Century Suite is an aft balcony cabin but is not much larger than a regular cabin and the Sunset Veranda overlooks the Sky Bar and is noisy and the veranda is not private.
If it was me I would go with a Deck 12 Sky Suite "if" the price is not significantly higher. If there is a large difference in price I would go with the CC class and have more money to enjoy Europe.
