Expect redesigned public spaces, an expanded SEA Thermal Suite, and new duty-free shopping outlets featuring boutique brands like Shinola.

California Coast Cruise by BKSCruisers

Sail Date: / Traveled As: Couple

Considering Celebrity is a premium cruise line we could not see the difference in the cruise. Food was not as good as other cruises and service was no better.

Great Sea Voyage by twillis724

Sail Date: / Traveled As: Couple

We had a great time. We enjoyed the time at sea the best. Due to the time of year and length of the cruse (Oct-Nov) there were few children aboard. Most passengers were in their 50s to 80s. Many had issues with walking and needed cane, walkers, and scooters. The crew went out of their way to help the passengers get around the ship and help them in the buffet line or where ever it was difficult to maneuver. I commend them for being so helpful

WE STAYED ON THE 7TH DECK FORWARD AND IT WAS GREAT. THEATRE, POOL, SHOPPING, CASINO AND MOST VENUES WITHIN A FEW MINUTES WALK. THE STARBOARD SIDE WAS NICE.

Try to get to lectures and theatre shows ON TIME; people wandering in and out are very distracting for performer and audience
