Food could be improved and dinner menu should be corrected.

Custom relation department, Naomi's help, should be glorification.

Celebrity Cruises = The Best of The Best!!

Sail Date: / Traveled As: Couple

After 40+ cruises, we know that Celebrity Cruises provides the best value and service of all the lines we have cruised with in over 30 years!!  Celebrity continues to demonstrate improvement in service and attention to detail with every cruise.  It is as if they address every comment that quests make with some action to make things better and better! We have 2 more Celebrity cruises booked with many more in the future!!

Perfection!

Verified Review

Sail Date: / Traveled As: Couple

Our every need was met on our cruise.  We had a Skye Suite on deck 12 and we enjoyed the very private balcony a lot.  Michael's Club and all the suite perks were well worth the extra expense.  The ports were fun and we always felt safe.  The food was wonderful and drinks were plentiful.  There are wonderful people on this ship.  We aren't into the pool deck scene and that seemed a little crowded at times - but we headed to the solarium and Persian Gardens.  The entertainment was great and we could always find a quiet spot to relax.  Best vacation ever!  We usually do more active vacations and were apprehensive about cruising but it was amazing.

The food was excellent, plentiful, and varied.

The bar drinks were excellent too although service was slow at times.  The bars could have each used a dedicated bar back which is a person who doesn't bartend but replenishes ice, mixers, glasses, etc...

The shore excursions were a lot of fun and the shore excursion desk staff were so polite and friendly.  Leaving the ship for the excursions was well organized.

I had a pedicure/manicure on the second day at sea the day before returning to Fort Lauderdale.  Usually the polish doesn't last but about 5 days on my fingernails before it starts chipping or wearing off but my nails still look like I had them done yesterday a week later.

I will definitely go on another cruise again in the future.

When it comes to service and making you feel welcome Celebrity hits the mark. From champagne welcome to Cruise Director saying goodbye on the pier as we departed you felt special. That's why we cruise right?

disappointing- Celebrity has become just anothemainstream cruise line-it has lost it cache

Verified Review

Sail Date: / Traveled As: Couple

Ship is well maintained, clean and in fairly good condition. Overall quieter, more relaxing  atmosphere than on RCL or Princess. Older more mature crowd with very few children or young couples onboard. 

Food has deteriorated and is no longer in the same league that one was used to on celebrity. Even lobster tails are smaller than ever, steaks tend to be a bit tough and service is a bit inconsistent.. Even food in specialty restaurants such as Tuscany grill is not what it used to be,, Standards have changed downwards in Celebrities quest for more profits.. Food whether breakfast or lunches at anywhere but the buffet end very early and are only one and a half hours so most people miss them and are forced to eat the cheaper even less quality buffet.

While they push hard to empty ship by 1030am all that does is cause long lines once you are off- they quickly wash their hands of you. 

RCL which owns celebrity needs to spend a little more per passenger and restore celebrity to the once great brand it was..

The food was great... the shows were good... the ship is great and the service excellent.. the one problem that I had was the wifi service was much too expensive. Other shops charge much less money. Why?

My favorite part was the Sonny Liston tour in St Thomas.  He had us laughing and singing all the way.  It was extreme fun travelling up the mountain.

My husband enjoyed the entertainment especially the two comics Ralph Harris and Bobby Printz.  The Four tenors and the Fly Boys were great.

Average.

Verified Review

Sail Date: / Traveled As: Couple

Pros: +  Beautiful ship.  Probably the most beautiful ship of the 10 cruises we have enjoyed. +  Impressive on board art collection. + The food quality was above average in most areas.  Even the buffet was great.  Nothing like the tired, cold assortments on the Royal Caribbean buffets.  We did not go to any off the pay restaurants. +  Extremely clean vessel. Probably the most clean we have seen in 10 cruises. +  Almost no kids on board.   + Nice (yet very small) night club “Quasar”. No one ever used.  See “age range” below.  Maybe they should turn this into another pay restaurant. Lol! Pro and Con: +/-  Sunset bar and lawn area out back were great spots to sneak away from the crowds at night.  I do not think many passengers were aware, due the aft-ship, top deck location.  The service and views were    amazing.  Very peaceful hideaway.  This represents 1/2 of the the ship’s top level surface area.  Impossible to imagine the cruise line makes any money here.  Expect this to be replaced next time Silhouette goes back to dry dock.  I list this as a pro and con.  Pro, because of the lack of crowds and beautiful night time stargazing area.  Great bar service too.  Con due to the “pay more” exclusivity factor.  Two pay restaurants here, the Lawn Club Grill at $50 extra per person per meal, and the Porch grill at $35 extra per person per meal.  Eight (8) “private” alcoves you can rent for $249 per person per day on sea days.  No access to a pool if you want to cool off.  Strange feature. Cons: - The service on Celebrity has noticeably slipped since my 2012 sailing on Celebrity Constellation.  Not enough bar service staff or dining room staff.  These poor people seemed very overworked. -Age range on this ship is older than we expected (60’s for average).  Hard for us to make social connections with older passengers sometimes.  However, we did meet some active seniors from Canada that were a hoot! -Lack of activities during sea days.  Everything offered throughout the ship on sea days were make up seminars, jewelry shopping tips and other things which seemed aimed at selling us something rather than providing fun.  No afternoon entertainment to break up lounging by the pool on sea days.  I guess we are spoiled by Royal Caribbean. -Ship shows were absolutely terrible.  UNBEARABLE.  The imported entertainment groups were the best. -The main dining room was complete and total chaos on most lunch and dinner seatings.  Some days we received water at the table, some days we had to get up and get it ourselves.  I walked out on dinner on the last night and over to the bar to provide a pre-dinner cocktail for me and my partner.  Our main waiter was wonderful, tried to call the cocktail waiter three times and no response.   -Two (2) restaurants for suite guests only.  Seven (7) additional pay restaurants on board.  $50 per person on top of what you already paid for the cruise.  It looks like Celebrity is trying to send a message to future cruisers (if you want the “ultimate” experience in service and quality, take your cruise fare and double it).  This is our 10th cruise, and on the newer, larger ships (Celebrity Solstice Class or RCL Oasis class) this is definitely the  future trend. -Steam room is co-ed (no separation) and the spa layout is extremely weird!  You pay $100 for the week to use the co-ed steam room, so men and women are in there together in robes.  When you leave the men’s locker room, you have to walk up to the front desk, in front of all the other “dressed” customers who are making appointments or checking in.  Then you stand there, in your robe, in front of everyone, until the front desk person can get a break to let you in to the steam area with their access card.  Lol!  Most bizarre thing I’ve ever seen on a newer luxury cruise ship.  Some of the women patrons felt very uncomfortable. -My partner had a terrible spa/accupuncture experience.  The “Doctor” did not tell him what to expect for the treatment.  He just left my partner in a room alone for 45 minutes with needles in his elbow which were hooked up to some electrical stimulus machine.  My partner was furious.  Even the spa director agreed the “doctor” handled this terribly and refunded the treatment fee. Overall rating (A, B, C, D, F):  C. Overall rating:  75% out of 100%. Cruise again on this ship:  No. Cruise again on Celebrity:  Not sure.

If you enjoy your drinks, upgrade to Premium Package, you won't regret it. Research all ports and plan ahead. This saves time, and you can be on your way instead of trying to decide once you have disembarked.

Get the drink package you will use it. For the ports get out of the cruise shopping areas and see the islands. For PR see old city, For St Martin see the whole island, for St Thomas (SEE ST JOHN). If you bring kids they have plenty to do too so you can enjoy your cruise.

Drink package is great and a must even if it is only soda and bottled water. Remember even the bottled water will cost you! Do the excursions and see the Islands, it is well worth it.

Cruises:
7 Night Eastern Caribbean (Ft. Lauderdale Roundtrip)
7 Night Western Caribbean (Ft. Lauderdale Roundtrip)
9 Night Southern Caribbean (Ft. Lauderdale Roundtrip)
