In perhaps the worst kept secret, Century will be leaving Celebrity's fleet next year to be transferred to the French arm of Royal Caribbean. Here is the press release.
Celebrity Cruises Announces Celebrity Century's Farewell 2014-2015 Season And Unveils 'Celebration Of The Century'
February 13, 2014
To celebrate the farewell season of Celebrity Century, the ship will host special events, including a newly introduced “President's 'Celebration of the Century' Cruise,” during a year featuring a record number of ports of call and 17 new cruise destinations for the brand. The farewell season will also feature exclusive onboard programming and special offers for guests. Celebrity Century will leave the fleet in April 2015. Captain's Club loyalty members and vacationers can join Michael Bayley, President and CEO of Celebrity Cruises, on the President's Celebration of the Century Cruise in Asia. The 14-night sailing from Singapore on Celebrity Century will depart March 8, 2015, and guests will travel to magnificent destinations in Vietnam and the Philippines. Further special events and exclusive onboard programming will be announced shortly.
From March 2014 through April 2015, Celebrity Century will visit 77 ports across 32 countries, the most destinations worldwide of any other ship in the Celebrity fleet. New exotic destinations include Manila and Boracay, Philippines; Bandar Seri Begawan (Muara), Brunei; and Yangon (Rangoon), Myanmar. Guests can take their pick from culture-rich experiences in Asia, Alaska, the Caribbean, Europe, the Middle East, the Pacific Coast and South Pacific.
Since its inaugural sailing in 1995, guests have enjoyed Celebrity Century’s spacious and beautifully-designed spaces, indulgent premium spa and award-winning dining experiences. Celebrity Century was the first ship to have the now hugely popular Martini Bar and Murano, the award-winning specialty restaurant.

Our first cruise was on the Century and we loved that experience. It will be sad to see her leave the Celebrity fleet.

And I won't be sad...we sailed the Century, twice....one time, we had a fabulous huge Cruisemates group cruise on the Century, I believe in 2005,and had lots of fun, but the ship iteself I never really liked...
It's nice to see her go forward though, with a new chapter,rather then the breakers.
Trip, with her book & tea!
