Review summary

First cruise with Celebrity and we loved it! An older crowd than RCL/NCL, but almost no kids on-board! The look and feel of the ship is well appointed and luxurious. Tonnes of great quiet spots to chill and relax. The adults only solarium was a favourite spot of ours to relax, swim and soak in the hot tubs. We never ate in the MDR as it’s not our style, but the buffet and specialty dining was better than any other cruise we have taken. The service was exceptional everywhere on the ship!

Embarkation

At the port at 10:30am and sipping champagne on the ship by 11:15am! Super smooth, fast and efficient!

Food and Dining

Overall delicious food! A step above most cruiseline food.

Oceanview Cafe and Bar

4 out of 5

Breakfast, lunch and dinner were all tasty and well presented. Great selection that changed regularly. Homemade ice cream was amazing and changed everyday. The only down side was the late night selection. Essentially just a pasta and pizza bar and leftover desserts. RCL/Celebrity need to work on matching NCL’s late night selections for us night owls. Buffet for dinner was almost always just crew. Celebrity guests like their MDR/specialties for dinner!

Le Petit Chef at Qsine

My only disappointment. They had one standard menu that flowed with the cool animation. But if you are vegetarian or happen to dislike certain foods, then they substitute and the animation doesn’t match your food. Was very sad to see mushroom and tomato dishes, two items that a good number of people do not enjoy. Service here was also the least attentive of all our meals.

Good service and tasty food. Just not as amazing as Murano!

My favourite by far. Tableside cooking for not only entrees but for dessert as well! Service was top notch and made us feel like celebrities!

Solarium

5 out of 5

Adults only area has comfy loungers with fully padded cushions. Towels are laid out and no need to sign them out like a criminal. Two hot tubs and a smaller pool with quiet soothing music. A fav place to chill especially when weather outside was chilly/rainy.

Fortune's Casino

Came out ahead, even though many say they run the slots tight! Big airy and NO smokers!!! Huge plus!

Service and Staff

Crew were exceptional and so attentive. Waiters roaming the buffet to get you drinks! We had the drink package but were always treated like full paying guests! Best service we’ve had on any ship!

Ship Quality

Cabin / Stateroom

Could use more storage. Lots of hangers but not much easy to access storage.

Ship tip

Hollywood Hot glass was fun but don’t go in thinking you can be creative. Only a few set items can be made and you really have very minimal involvement in the actual creation. It was fun but not what I had hoped for. Also the price you pay online for the class is for the most basic piece. Anything cool costs $$$$

Ports of call

San Francisco, California

5 out of 5
So much to see and do. We had been two years earlier so had opportunity to see different less mainstream things! Walt Disney Family Museum was amazing and a must see!

Vancouver (Canada Place), British Columbia

Live here. Easy embarkation.

Disembarkation

Walked off no issues! Literally the easiest disembarkation. We had to do customs in San Francisco on day five and it was smooth and well organized!
