3-4 times on this ship / the food was better and the entertainment 1st class.

The on line accounting was terrible (improper entries)  although the amounts were correct. There is no need to create anxiety when there should be none! Disappointed ships daily movie was frequently only available late (1030) ..since we cruise a lot don't usually get off and want more options on board.

Well appointed ship, good service and variety of dinner selections.  Entertainment for the most part, especially guest entertainers was excellent.  Cruise director outgoing and interesting.  Ports of Call could use some changes.  Havana rather then Grand Cayman.  Weather outstanding.  Some administrative difficulties to include failure to assign table requested prior to boarding; credit from cruise line was not applied; incorrect status resulting in incorrect billing and missing perks(Select rather than Elite assigned).  Captain Club's hostess, Maila,  was impersonal, indifferent and rude.

CHECKING IN EASY CREW FRIENDLY FOOD GREAT SHOWS GREAT OVERALL JUST WHAT I EXPECTED HAVING BEEN ON THE EQUINOX BEFORE

.CHECKING OUT BETTER THAN BEFORE AND WE WERE ABLE TO HAVE A FULL BREAKFAST BEFORE LEAVING SHIP.  GETTING A WHEELCHAIR MADE IT GOOD AND AS WE WERE NON US CITIZENS THE LINE UP TO CUSTOMS WAS SO MUCH SHORTER.

GETTING TRANSPORTATION TO AND FROM THE AIRPORT FROM THE CRUISE LINE GAVE US A LEG UP IN LEAVING THE SHIP.  ALSO GETTING THE FLIGHT FROM THE CRUISE LINE WAS A GOOD SAVINGS.

My favorite part of the cruise was the itinerary.  

 

the thing that sometimes needed improvement were a couple of the guides.  They knew the info they had to give but didn't always keep track of the people in the group who might have been slightly slower than the rest.

Terrific Winter Escape

Great itinerary and exceptional specialty dining

The entire experience was very enjoyable with the exception of some unfortunate issues at dinner in the main dining room (clonfused, chaotic wait staff service involving mixed up orders and uncooked meals and slow service)

The entire cruise was very well done from start to finish. Friendly and attentive  room service and dining room service. Enjoyed many on-board activities on a daily basis. The addition of a blown glass exhibit daily was a wonderful addition. We enjoyed most of the entertainment shows, but the sound volume of the band was too loud. We will definitely make arrangements for another Celebrity Cruise in the near future.

Great looking ship, very clean, shows just a little wear from new. The food was a little disappointing. Some meals were very good, others fair and a couple just bad. They served rack of lamb one night that was so tough it could not be cut with a sharp steak knife. They do not know how to prepare fish in the main dining room and i would recommend never ordering fish unless you are in the specialty restaurant. I will give their salad bar an A plus and some of the buffet items were good. Their breads were fresh and available in a nice assortment. I would also give their deserts are very good grade. I would give their basic coffee a c-, just not very good. Service was very good and the crew friendly, The entertainment was good and in some cases very good. On sea days it seemed that there was a shortage of chairs as guests would hog a chair all day even though they would hardly ever be there. The internet service is improved over a few years ago buy still seems behind 2017 standards. I would also suggest staying away from the casino unless you don't mind making an additional donation to the cruise line. All in all a great trip.

The ship was lovely. Our meals in the Blu dining room were excellent. The tours were average. We had to walk about a mile for a tall ship cruise that was labelled as mild and there were no shuttles provided. The entertainment was mixed as in all the ships. Some nights were exceptional and others were not to our taste. 

We found the activities on RCL were more engaging but the free drink package was a lot of fun.

It's huge, easy to get lost the first day or two, but the staff are very helpful. The best coffee is made by Alexander on deck 5. Best drinks are at the Mast Bar on deck 14 Nehemia Best shopping is on the last day, great sales. there is always something to do on this ship

The adult pool was the best! No kids.

Splurge on Morano's but get only 1 lobster entree if also sharing the Chateaubriand. Also, try the goat cheese soufflé and save room for dessert.
