I was very excited about this cruise. I had only ever been on 2 Discovery Cruises to nowhere (gambling 4 hr cruises) before and EVERYone told me we would LOVE this cruise. My Sweetheart is from TX. He had never been on a cruise before in his life. My first clue was the peeling paint at the CELEBRITY X loading area. When we got on board after standing in a HUGE line we were handed (without being asked) glasses of a drink. Cheap lousy mimosas. I took one sip and hunted for a place to get rid of it. Things were fine until we saw the 'entertainment'. We went to the 'show' and I was appauled to see what was could certainly be described as Disney-Mormon-Dancers. It was the most hokey-cheap-bulloney - over the top junk- fest I have ever seen. Then a girl dressed like a Cirque-De-Sole has-been... Wearing a spandex one piece with fluorescent paint and 9, count them NINE irridescent hula-hoops. After she picked up the first one, I just KNEW she had to work with all 9 before she was done. I looked at my man and told him I'd meet up with him when it was over if he wanted to stay for it. The following 'entertainment' is in no particular order...Johnny Mantra- rock and roll Vegas wannabe has been. Celine Deon impersonator. OMG. BLOODY AWFUL. Acapella 4 some, barbershop quartet...WHY? Glass blowing by staffers, NOT artists....OMG, just SHOOT ME! An Anglo male singing 'Mister Bo Jangles' while another Anglo male did...I don't know what that was...cartwheels? Sheesh...
I saw a woman who HAD to be 80 year old wearing a bikini and carrying a cane at the pool. I was told by the travel agent that the crowd would be more 'oler and more sophisticated'. NOOoooo....Just OLD! Tried the dance floor? OMG. DJ was the LAMEST wedding style DJ ever. Played: I Like Big Butts... and... You Gotta Move Like Jagger. .... Night after night after night... Even when we landed in St Martin...Move it Like Jagger. I go to an island to experience the island, , not to hear MORE American banal junk.
