Tips from Our Community Members:

The ship was very clean. The staff was very friendly. It was easy to get around - only about 700 passengers on board. There was never a wait for the elevator. - ldyflyr

We loved this cruise because we just wanted to relax. It was slow-paced and peaceful. We only saw 5 kids the whole trip. The food and service were excellent. We will cruise again with Celebrity. - staccob

Main dining, Oceanview buffet, Mast Grill and Aqua Spa cafe were all wonderful. - Kailey95
