Review summary

I'm glad we went. We enjoyed the new ship, the 4 main dining rooms & the theaters. Love the talks by professional speakers.

Ship experiences

Food and Dining

5 out of 5
There are 4 main dining rooms. They all offer the same fare EXCEPT that each restaurant offers several specialties only available in that restaurant.

Entertainment

5 out of 5
The theater is small which makes it even more comfortable. The stage is arranged like a theater in the round. Very nice.

Children's Programs

Didnt bring any kids.

Service and Staff

5 out of 5
Service and staff are the cream of the crop. Very nice.

Ship Quality

5 out of 5
I like that its less walking than the huge ships. Only thing I hated was there was no library. They had a library cart with 6 books. I'm used to having the conceirge with the library. I never did find the concierge desk, when I did come across it there was no one there & I couldnt find a waiting area to wait.

Cabin / Stateroom

4 out of 5
I think it was narrower than normal. The balcony is a joke, its a huge window. I think the layout could have been better. To use the vanity mirror the fridge is between the mirror and the drawers. Go for an inside and save your money! The room was nice clean and new/ not worn out.

Ship tip

Forget the cost of the balcony unless theres no difference in price.

Ports of call

Ft. Lauderdale (Port Everglades), Florida

4 out of 5
The port is nice and clean & belongs to Celebrity. However, the layout could be a little better so it isnt such a long walk where bags are dropped off and you walk in. The whole process of checking in is wonderful though. You can do it online basically before arrival.

San Juan, Puerto Rico Did not visit port

We've been there many times before. It is a wonderful place though.

Tortola, British Virgin Islands

5 out of 5
I just walked around the port area. Very nice and clean. No hawkers. Not trashy. Had a arts & crafts handmade shop there too. One of a kind & all made on the island. Superb!!

Philipsburg, St. Maarten Did not visit port

Visited many times before but it is a nice island to visit.

Disembarkation

5 out of 5
OUTSTANDING! We used the luggage valet, which the ship takes your bags the night before and you don't see them again until you land at your home airport! $25 bag. worth every penny!
