Escalator on the Century is forward on decks 6 and 7 (by Michaels Club). I was shocked to see it there. Made me feel like I was at the mall.

We were in a Century Suite and loved having a butler.

Smile Penthouse Suite - Constellation

Just booked the port side Penthouse Suite on the Constellation for April of 2014. Anyone have any pointers about these rooms? Exactly what does the butler do? Is there a room steward, too?

I would change the booking (including the flight) to match the current passport. No need to risk a big hassle.
