Review summary

Met a lot of nice and interesting people . The ship is in excellent shape and kept very clean and comfortable . Ship s activities were very low key and boring.

THe entertainment was the worst out of all of the 30+ cruises we have taken

THey are owned by ROyal Carribean but do not give you equal benefits and amenities . A few of staff were not accommodating to my requests. But many were excellent our cabin attendant THeresa was the best we have ever had.

The food was good to very good try the Qsine restaurant for a unique dining experience. Our server Sophia was very knowledgeable and made it a great experince

The ship is boring after dinner hours as the entertainment was so bad we walked out of most of the shows

The ports were interesting but many excursions are not worth the price  check out your travel time from ship before you book excursions

due to storms at our departure airport we missed ship sailing and had to fly to Aruba to meet ship Celebrity hot line was very helpful and is a good thing we had travel insurance as they do not refund anything or give you anything for missing the first 3 days
