The cruise itinerary was exactly as advertised, no complaints other than many of us would have like 2 nights in more ports.
The ship itself is showing its age. We had an outside cabin and there was visible rust on the window framing. The bathroom tile was wiped clean but had not been deep scrubbed in a long time. One day I took a rag,soaped it up and applied some muscle to cleaning the tile and sure enough, I was able to remove the "gray area".
We find the layout of the theatre area to be cumbersome. Entering on the lower deck you must still walk down steps to the main seating area. There are handrails, but they do not extend as far as they should.
Stay away from cabin 2023. There is a wierd whistling noise at night that kept me awake for hours. The room steward said it was the sound of the stabelizers. Other cabin residents said they did not hear these noises.
One last word about Celebrity service. We were bothered by fruit flies in our cabin and reported this. Housekeeping sent a crew to more thoroughly clean the cabin. Our steward left us a bottle of wine to apologize. The next day another fruit fly landed in a drink as we entered the cabin. The following day Guest Services called to ask if our cabin was now satisfactory. We related the latest fruit fly story and said it appeared to be the final fly. Guest Services treated us to a specialty dining dinner of our choiceto make up for our bad experience. That was taking responsibility and we appreciated it.
