To begin, we used the Celebrity app and therefore had expedited boarding. It worked perfectly. We used our phones to board not the paper copy.
Our cabin was 7223 and I would book it again. Very quiet and close to elevator. I am a little spoiled because we book mini suites on Princess, it’s not in suite class so not a big up charge. At 319 sq ft it’s larger than Veranda cabin and has 2 TVs. However I like Celebrity too and the smallness of the cabin doesn’t stop me because the cabin is efficient and balcony very nice.
We had wonderful service at the Martini Bar, Pool Bar and MDR. I won’t comment on the food because taste is so subjective.
Breakfast at the Buffet is so varied, so much to choose from, I had a different breakfast every day, never the same. The Mast grill Burger is my favorite, but I did have lunch in the buffet too. Many choices.
Murano was good as always, Tuscan Grill good too, just not great, but great is different for everyone.
We spend mornings and afternoons at the pool. The seating is uncomfortable, impossible and so jammed together it’s ridiculous. Do the designers of the pool area expect us to crawl up the chair and be locked in? That said it’s where we want to be to enjoy the breezy sun and occasional music or trivia game.
The Solarium is the best at sea, and I use it to take a dip because the water in the main pool is freezing.
We only saw one show, the comedian was funny but it was a repeat for us. Dan is a great Social Director and his interactions with the Captain are hilarious.
They worked very hard to make New Years Eve a special event. You had a choice to celebrate at the pool deck, atrium or Ensemble Lounge..
We didn’t get off at any ports this time, after 52 cruises we are content to chill out while the majority get off the ship. That’s why the 4 port Western is better than the 3 port Eastern Caribbean for us.
The exceptional staff make Celebrity a wonderful Cruiseline. So friendly and professional. So I will always come back to Celebrity because, it’s a great value, so I enjoy it and remember that I am lucky to be able to cruise, little things may not be to my liking but hey lots of people will never experience a cruise so I don’t fuss about it. Happy New Year!
