Review summary

Loved the ship. Had a infinite veranda room. I think it will be a hit with some but not all. Celebrity really did a good job. Eden was a neat experience. The shows on board and overall entertainment was disappointing. They need to really step it up in that area.

Service and Staff

We tipped our room attendant our first night. I was expecting a little better but our bathroom was never really cleaned very well

Ship Quality

4 out of 5
Loved the ship and the martini bar. Magic carpet was fun

Cabin / Stateroom

4 out of 5
I really liked our cabin but my spouse was not keen on the infinite veranda. Opening and closing the window worked well but was quite noisy at times.Design features were great.

Ship tip

If you like to get up early and your spouse likes to sleep in then a infinite veranda may not be your best choice

Ports of call

San Juan, Puerto Rico
