SHIP: Although beautifully appointed with new carpet, furnishings, it was hard to find a comfortable chair or sofa. Seats we either too deep, too upright, too hard, no arms or too slanted.(I swear the bar stools on 5 in Spirits were designed to have you slide off!) There were a barrel type club chairs in the Discoveries bar and up on 10 in the living room. But there were also acrylic & metal mesh patio chairs up there too....
FOOD: mediocre at best, inedible at times. Even in the specialty restaurants the food was just OK, not special. No flavor to the French onion soup, most dishes salty tasting, chicken & shrimp pad Thai came out to the table with just noodles & sauce - when brought to the attention off the waiter, he noted that this was his second of these complInts but did he bring out chicken/shrimp? No.
EXCEPTIONS: the cheeseburgers & fries at the grill on 9 were really good and the steak although not great was much better than in the dining room or the steak house. The frozen yogurt was terrific!
STAFF: wonderfully friendly - always with a smile.
SUMMARY: this was a great disappointment for we were really looking forward to being a bit upscale (price/amenities) from celebrity & were thinking it wood be similar to Oceania's small ships in food/comfort/service. Not even close.
