We had a very relaxing and interesting cruise, with plenty of activities on board during the ten days at sea. My wife, who always says she has no artistic ability, took up watercolor painting with the help of several workshops and some advice from fellow artist-passengers. The island of Madiera was a beautiful port of call. We could have happily spent two or three days there. The service and amenities aboard ship were top-notch, just as we've found with Celebrity in the past.
Unfortunately, the bow and stern areas of the boat deck were closed off, so you could only walk the boat deck by staying on one side or passing back and forth through the elevator lounges. There seems to be a general trend in the industry toward minimizing public spaces, which I regret. I want to travel on a ship, not a stack of balcony cabins.
