Review summary

This cruise is too ambitious. Or else celebrity is too cheap to overnight anywhere. We saw so little of the port of calls it was ridiculous. If I were planning this cruise I would forget Corfu entirely, (and Dubrovnik, which offers nothing) and overnight in Santorini as it is too difficult to see everything and get back down the mountain on that fanicular in such a short period of time. Then the day at sea would be one day sooner allowing for an overnight in Naples, as well, as there is much to see there. The trip was far too rushed. Plus, I would not charge for soft drinks (sodas) etc. just liquor, wine and beer. Makes Celebrity look cheap. That said, your staff is fabulous but you need to hire just a few more and rotate days off. They aren’t slaves. They need time off, too.

Ship tip

I would tell them not to buy the beverage packages because they are silly. No one should charge for sodas and soft drinks. Just add a few dollars to the cruise and you’d look much more first rate. Presently, the cruise line appears cheap because of that. Beverage packages should only include liquor, wine and beer.
