Pros and cons from a Young Latino Couple by LosAngelesCruis

Verified Review
/ Sail Date: / Traveled As: Couple

Staff was friendly and very accomadating, representing several different countries which was great because most passengers were 40-80 year old europeans. Be prepared not to get the best night's sleep unless you have ear plugs and sleeping pills, because there is a lot of squeaking and shifting and engine noises depending on sea conditions. The stops/ports were great but the time at each port was too short and most locations you land in had a mix of tourism and locals. We suggest venturing as far from the port to get a better glimpse of the life in each countrry.  Pre-purchased tours that you find on board for each destination are very expensive, so we suggest looking for the right price when you get off the ship. Rule of thumb; The price is ALWAYS negotiable.

The service at the Grand Restaurant was great but the meals there became a bit repetitive and lacked a bit of love and craftsmanship. The buffet had a range of tasty options but after a while your options also become trite. Formal nights can be a bit stiff and if you do not dress excessively nice you feel a bit left out. Also, you don't receive adequate descriptions of what to wear so it may subtract from your overall enjoyment. 

Shops on board are limited and expensive so make sure you bring all your toilletries, snacks and booze. Drinks are very expensive, although there are happy hours, times are limited and so are the drinks. 

The activities can be a little dull and limited especially for folks our age (late 20's-early 30's). The 'educational' speakers were a bit boring and often dumbed down the information and history of the places to visit. The nightly dj was very average to say the least and dissapointing, especially since there isn't much to do after 10 pm. 

They have an arcade on board, however the games were very few, outdated and very expensive. 

The ship overall shows it's age, but still very nice and maintained. 

Sunbathing on the deck is cool and the pools are small-medium sized but still fun. We would have liked to see better quality entertainment and world music and also cuisine and food related to the ports we visited. 

Also, they take your suggestion form very serious and will question and or follow up. 

Overall we had a good time, it was our first cruise and it was 15 days!

We loved the cruise. Everything was clean and The first stateroom was small and had bunk beds but when we needed a second room, the cruiseline moved two of us at no charge.

No cruise by del

We never took the cruise as there was an ice storm in Dallas and all flights were cancelled.  The ship departed without us.  What else can I write to reach 150 characters.

Old shoddy ship negatively impacted our experience. by dcruiser

Ship is old and in dire need of rehab.  Carpets and upholstery were stained ragged and just plain dirty looking. Heavy handed use of disinfectant sprays scented the air but I failed to see actual cleaning performed.  Dining room chairs need legs tightened and to be reupholstered.  I felt like I was sitting in a wobbly hole every evening at dinner. The Aqua Spa for breakfast and lunch was fantastic.   It served light meals that hit the spot.  On-board entertainment was poor.  Singers had no breath control and poor enunciation. I've seen better costumes and stage scenery in high school productions.  We did have a Hawaiian crafts person June who was excellent and very entertaining.  Chelsea was very knowledgable and a great speaker. Astronomy lecturer was monotone and boring. Dining room and shore excursion staff were very polite and had great customer service skills but were extremely disorganized. Almost seemed like they were trainees.   Food quality was good, portion size small, which I appreciated, but menu selection especially for light meals was non-existent.  You wanted to eat light? One selection only. We experienced rough seas but the captain chose not to use the ship stabilizers. He finally put them out when we were in  a gale with 25-27 foot waves. Drinks were over priced: 1 small martini $11. The cruise director and his staff did a poor job arranging activities especially considering we had 8 sea days! We cruise a great deal and have been told we had to go on Celebrity as it was the best!  I was disappointed and will not cruise with Celebrity again.

Nice Time by SeeDays

Very comfortable ship,  great staff, and great food!  Weather was not the greatest which is not Celebrity's fault.  The Ensenada stop was strange - 5 hours, from 7 PM - Midnight.  Need to arrive earlier.
