Review summary

The ship overall is still nice but can see signs of wear and tear. Glad she is getting a refurb in May. Ports were exceptional with the exception of Zadar, that was a disappointment especially being the first port. Food is better than average for sure! Lots of choices of food on buffet but not not enough venue choices in this shop for dining! Excursions are good but would suggest the possibility of getting a few tour guides with less accent. Just with such a short time and fast talking to get info in is difficult to get all that is said. Entertainment on the ship is a plus! Really good. Lastly, add Valldemosa to Palma stop! Celebrity is still our favorite cruise line in this price range!

Ship Quality

4 out of 5
The common areas especially the bathrooms were very good.Counters needed really good. Didn’t really enjoy the shopping area layout. Oceanview was strange layout too with all the rooms and walls in between the food areas.

Cabin / Stateroom

3 out of 5
Could have been cleaner especially countertops! Masking tape along bottom of door was very “tacky”. Pullout bed left absolutely no room to move.

Ship tip

Food is good, entertainment is better than most, great band, rooms need work cleanliness in staterooms could be improved. You pay extra for everything so compare prices.

Ports of call

Venice, Italy

5 out of 5
No excursion but loved Venice went early.

Zadar, Croatia

2 out of 5
Thought this was a little lame. Could find another first port, started the cruise off with low expectations because of this being the first port and pretty much nothing there. The water front was pretty.

Dubrovnik, Croatia

Palma De Mallorca, Balearic Islands

4 out of 5
This was the surprise!! Really cool port. Went to Soller and Valldemosa (private tour), think Celebrity is missing out by not taking tours to Valldemosa.

Valencia, Spain

5 out of 5
What an incredible city. The tour guide was extremely knowledgeable and informative but had an extremely thick accent very hard to understand.


5 out of 5
The best ever!!
