This was our 10th cruise\, but our first time cruising on Celebrity. At first\, things were a bit rough with the room attendant\, but was quickly resolved at the front desk with another new attendant. Here are the pros: library is open 24/7\, the service on-board is excellent\, on-board string ensemble\, not pushy bar staff\, live band/orchestra with shows (not just a recording with music)\, night light standard in the bathroom\, front desk staff\, quality of the drinks\, they have 110 volt plugs in the room\, guest services\, and Q-tip/cotton balls filled container in the bathroom.
The cons: No atlas in library (would like to see where we were\, etc.)\, limited activities\, most stewards can't make towel animals\, activity leader is not much of a leader when he leaves and asks other passengers to take over his position\, photos taken throughout the day and on excursion day are NOT available for viewing the next day. One has to wait at least 48 hours.
Obviously\, some of the items mentioned are minimal (no towel animals) and we understand\, but these are things we look for on a cruise. Also\, I would say that this cruise was geared more for seniors. We were one of the youngest people on the cruise and only saw 6 young children on board. At one point I felt that I was on HAL. Overall\, a wonderful cruise!! You will not be disappointed. We went to see the sites\, not to people watch on board.

Food and Dining

Excellent! So good that we didn't even need to go to specialty restaurants. They even catered to our 18 month old son. Very classy.

Entertainment was good because they would use a real live band/orchestra for their performances... not just a recorded sound track. As for the activities on board\, wow... one of the worst! There are none! and the ones that were offered had no cruise activity personnel present to start it (and it happened on several days) How could this happen when it is written on the daily activity sheet??
