Review summary

In short, this was a great cruise. Celebrity does so many things right. We love the more sophisticated feel of the ship compared to a Royal Caribbean ship we have been on. We normally sail Silversea, but have been wanting to change things up a bit. This is our 2nd cruise with Celebrity. We love the public spaces, loved our Sky Suite... Staff was fantastic in all restaurants, bars, butler, suite attendant, Michaels Club concierge etc....We had a couple small issues and they really bent over backwards to be sure we were happy. Things happen on all cruise ships, but its how the cruise line handles the situation is what is most important and Celebrity was fantastic. The itinerary was absolutely fantastic...couldn’t recommend it more!! The fjords are amazing. Our only 2 complaints were: deck 12 sucks. We were aft (wake view), which we absolutely love but above us was the outside deck of buffet and so all we heard were deck chairs dragging. My mother was also on deck 12, starboard side and she could hear the buffet carts rolling around all day and into the wee hours of the night. Our other complaint was the food. There were 4 of us in 2 sky suites traveling together. We thought the food was very mediocre in Luminae and Tuscan Grill. We are not foodies, not picky eaters, but it was so blah. Not bad...just blah. The only good meal we had was lunch one day in Sushi on 5. We even ordered from the main dining room menu a couple times while in Luminae....those were good, but nothing to write home about. I hope there are better chefs on other ships. We have sailed Reflection before and were happy with the food.
