Excellent Itinerary, Great Cruise, could have had better service

Sail Date: March 06, 2016

Reviewed: 8 months ago

Traveled As: Couple

Room Type: Balcony

Our cruise was excellent with great ports that had perfect beaches and great shopping experiences.  The ship could have been better maintained and the beverage service was overwhelmed.  Our cabin stewards were the best and the dining room and specialty restaurant service was excellent.  The Celebrity excursions were average with the process being their usual unorganized chaos with long wait times.  The food was good, but not up to their usual high standards on this particular cruise.

 

We will sail again on Celebrity, but we hope that this experience was a one off.  Cruise One and Debbie and Bob Knox are the best and always find a way to make cruising easier and even more fun.

Tip

Don't miss the main entertainers, the glass blowing, the specialty restaurants and the evening sky lounge entertainment.

The shopping is not usually better than the value you can get from the ports. The shipboard shops have to report sales to customs, but the port shops usually do not.
