Review SummaryI guess that I had expected more from a Celebrity cruise and was disappointed. The cabin was adequate, nothing special, but we expected that. Food was "OK", but nothing spectacular. We learned later that the meals are the same no matter which Celebrity ship you sail on so glad we didn't pay more. Apparently, Corporate office decides the menu and the ship staff have to produce it. The dinner menu was all right but not great. Nightly options were steak and chicken which were ok. Best a la carte option I had was the Pork a la Moutarde. Waiter staff is very attentive and helpful. Wine steward was a bit pushy but tolerable. Common areas are very clean and well maintained. Pool area is ok but it was too chilly for us to use it on this cruise. Casino area is small, but lively. Lots of slot machines, only two roulette tables which disappointed my better half. Did not use the spa of the fitness center. Tried to use the Computer Center to talk to our daughters back home but found that Skype is blocked by every cruise line as it uses too much bandwidth.
Food and Dining
Not sure why, but the main dining room for dinner was not well attended with numerous tables empty or with only two or four people. Ours was a table for 8 and we were the only two. It is possible that this was due to the late seating which doesn't start until 8:45PM.
Musicians that we heard around the ship were very good and would play almost anything within their specialty. The juggler who is not a standard on the ship but a guest performer was incredible and the highlight of all the shows.
Trivia and other games were fun. We found bingo at $30 to be a bit much for us so we passed on that.
