Since ctable uses the array package, you can add formatting commands 
to the table column specifications or create a new column type with 
the size you need.  See the documentation for the array package for 
details on how to do this.

e.g.  instead of an c column, you can use


which makes the text of that column \small.  This kind of column 
definition can be passed to ctable as well.

If you do this a lot, you can define a small columntype:


and then whenever you want a small centered column you would pass C 
instead of c to the ctable command. (Obviously you can do the same 
thing for r and l columns too.)
