The Good: smooth seas; great weather crossing the Atlantic. Superb service: best on any Celebrity ship! Good speakers and above average entertainment. Really enjoyed the opportunity to engage with fellow passengers and made several new friends.

The Bad: Celebrity seems intent on irritating its best passengers. Why do we have to pay for Cappuccino coffee? Why do they give out 3 drink tickets each day that can only be used from 5 -7 PM? If you eat dinner around 6 it really only amounts to one drink. Upgrading to Concierge when in elite status is a total waste of money!

The Ugly: How many times do we need to go through customs? Once in Boston (OK; absolutely necessary); once in Bermuda (OK; necessary); again in Port Canaveral (a REAL cluster!: took over 4 hours before being allowed back on the ship) and then AGAIN in Miami (As an American coming from an American port what was the reason?)

Don't upgrade to concierge if you are already Elite.
