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?)
