Review summary

We loved it and are completely sold on Celebrity! We've sailed most of the cruise lines, Princess, Holland America,Carnival, Royal Caribbean and Norwegian. Frankly, none of them can compare to Celebrity and we will forever only book on Celebrity. The attention to detail, elegance of the ships, and amazing staff and food are simply the best!

Embarkation

5 out of 5
Excellent as we were in Concierge class and got to board first with champagne reception and lunch in Cosmopolitan dining room.

Ship experiences

Food and Dining

5 out of 5
Celebrity has wonderful food-this is our third Celebrity cruise and the food is generally excellent! We visited all 4 main dining rooms, the Mast Grill and the Oceanview Cafe, did not feel the need to go to a specialty restaurant as we were very satisfied with the main fare offered.

Onboard Activities

5 out of 5
We always went to the evening theater productions which were terrific. We also went to the special acrobat show in the Club which was magnificent. We attended the three lectures by Hal Tingren and also saw the movie The Push with the Q & A following. Also, since the ship featured The Moveable Feast with Marcus Samuelson and another tv chef, attended both of their cooking demonstrations. It was all just perfect! We had some success in the casino as well!

Entertainment

5 out of 5
We enjoyed all performances and talents provided by the ship. Excellent quality overall!

Children's Programs

We didn't have children with us and didn't see too many on the ship

Service and Staff

5 out of 5
Tremendous attention to detail! Room made up every time we re-entered. Waiters go out of their way to call you by name. Questions are handled immediately.

Ship Quality

5 out of 5
The cleanliness of the ship was incredible! I was really impressed by the wash station located outside of the Oceanview cafe, ensuring all guests washed their hands prior to sharing common serving utensils! Brilliant idea! No one seemed to get sick because everyone was constantly washing. The ship is beautiful! I thought the dining rooms and Oceanview cafe were very interesting in the utilization of seating areas, all different with such a variety of chairs. The design of this ship is so well thought out! Service was impeccable-no dirty plates ever visible on tables.

Cabin / Stateroom

5 out of 5
Beautiful, clean, well designed with more storage than we even needed. Loved the control panel on the wall, enjoyed the infinite veranda, charging station box well designed. I loved the shower and the sink, and the drawer in the bathroom!

Ship tip

DO IT!! Make sure you understand about moving through the 4 main dining rooms BEFORE you sail! We had a fixed time for dining-6PM>< which unfortunately FIXED us in one dining room! We had to go to the concierge to get permission to move through the 4 restaurants. I met more than a few cruisers who were having the same challenge. Everyone wants to experience the 4 main restaurants but the dining room staff seems to be very challenged as to how to do tis. I thin on this one thing, The EDGE needs to look at how Disney Cruises successfully moves their passengers through the main dining rooms.

Key West, Florida

4 out of 5
We've been there several times so just walked around mostly. We did visit Harry Truman's little White House though on our own and enjoyed it. The port has a great vibe.

Costa Maya (Mahahual), Mexico

4 out of 5
The port has been created just for ships but we did do an excursion Mayan Ruins and enjoyed it very much.

Cozumel, Mexico

George Town, Grand Cayman

We did the StingRay City/Snorkel tour and really enjoyed this unusual experience!

Disembarkation

5 out of 5
We walked off immediately since we positioned our bags in the Eden dining room at 6:00 BEFORE we ate in the Oceanview Cafe which ensured our 4th in line spot! Then we walked off and caught our ALL STAR shuttle to the airport. This enabled us to catch an earlier flight (10:45a) with no problem, There were people on the shuttle with 9:00am flights who were really nervous but they did make it in time. This is not an advisable departure time, however.
