Review summary

The ports were unique and all took US currency. The upgraded veranda room we purchased was sold as partially obstructed view and we were told it only effected looking down. In reality the tender boat with radar head stuck above our handrail and we would have never taken that room had we known that! Celebrity boat was great but unless you bought an expensive meal plan you felt like a second class citizen as main dinning room options were lacking and portions were ridiculously small. Also cost for onboard internet was way too high and we wasted 20% of port time going to places with free WiFi to communicate home. Allot to like but not sure we got what we expected. Price was reasonable and weather was great.

Don't stay on deck 6. Our balcony view was mostly obstructed by a tender boat which we were advised when we booked that wouldn't be the case. The room was very nice, good beds, large bath and very clean.

Ship tip

Get up early if you want a chair my the pool. Quality of ships production staff was only average but the acts that they brought in most nights were very good. If you like expensive jewelry and watches this is the cruise for you.
