Good cruise but not up to our expectations

Sail Date: December 07, 2014

Reviewed: 1 year ago

Traveled As: Couple

Room Type: Balcony

A lot of time on the ship, but not terribly good entertainment. One good lounge group; but the rest were very loud and obviously amateurs pulled from eastern Europe.

Production shows very good; but entertainers brought in for evening shows were not top class.

Food in Ocean View was the same thing every day, and got dryer by the day.

Service really bad on average. Seemed like few people really cared whether you were there or not.

This was a high cost trip with low amenities. It goes to some beautiful places which are worth seeing. And if you are OK with not worrying about the entertainment, and not trying to get drinks, that's worth it.

We were on the Celebrity Silhouette in June. That was an overwhelmingly better experience. Don't know why there was so much difference in quality on essentially the same ship, but it was dramatic!

Ship Quality
Food and Dining
It took a knife to cut two eggs over easy. What else do you need to know.
Service and Staff
One quiet group -- Beacon Street Duo. Great music selection and it was possible to have a conversation. Most of the rest were just loud.
Onboard Activities
there has to be something other than selling art, selling gambling, selling jewelry, selling souvenirs.
Destinations and Excursions
Cabin / Stateroom
Miami, Florida
Oranjestad, Aruba
Beautiful scenery.
Willemstad, Curacao
We just loafed near the dock.
St. George's, Grenada
Great views, pretty waterfall, nice flowers.
Bridgetown, Barbados
Unusual shoreline, historical sights and pretty flowers.
Castries, St. Lucia
Scenery highlight. Beautiful coast and mountains. Unusual waterfall.
St. John's, Antigua
Historically interesting. A few scenic spots.
Basseterre, St. Kitts
Great place. Railway has great views, but a little bouncy; don't go if you get seasick. We also did the helicopter ride back. More great views.
Philipsburg, St. Maarten
More beautiful views in a tour. Catamaran tour not as nice as it might have been -- it was raining.


Great ship that needs better management.
