Review summary

The cruise was amazing. We didn’t even see it all. We are already looking to get back on the ship. 7 days isn’t long enough to do everything but I was okay with that.

Embarkation

4 out of 5
Celebrity did embarkation in a way I had not seen before on my other cruises (including celebrity) they called people up by category name. This seemed very smooth the only downside is for us regular passages without a specific category name it wasn’t clear what ours was called. Regular? Basic? General? My husband and I went up when one sounded right but I’m honestly not sure if we skipped the line. We were able to board within 20 mins of the gates opening at 10 when we were supposed to board at 1 (I checked in very late online) just by arriving at the pier early and waiting for the category to be called.

Ship experiences

Food and Dining

Tuscan Restaurant

4 out of 5

We went twice to this restaurant because the first time was so awesome. Sadly our second visit didn’t compare. The second time the staff ignored our table until they rushed over and just said “so what do you want” - it honestly caught me off guard. Then the food came out cold. I’d chalk it up to a bad busy day - but it was disappointing.

The Martini Bar

5 out of 5

Always busy but great drinks. Elderflower martini was my favourite.

Rooftop Garden Grill

3 out of 5

My biggest disappointment was this restaurant. The pulled pork was amazing and set the meal off right but the brisket was the worst I’ve ever had. For people who like barbecue the brisket will not live up to expectations. I’d recommend trying something else if you go.

Raw on Five

5 out of 5

Amazing. Food was great. All the staff were so healthful and friendly.

Mast Grill

Good easy burgers

Fine Cut Steakhouse

5 out of 5

One of the few places on the ship I actually found a wine list. The steak didn’t disappoint either.

Cosmopolitan Restaurant

5 out of 5

Some of the best service we had on the cruise was in this restaurant. And the food was amazing too.

Ship tip

If you check off that it’s your honeymoon don’t expect anything special. I only expected something because they asked but honestly nothing happened. It was an amazing cruise still.

Ports of call

Costa Maya (Mahahual), Mexico

1 out of 5
Honestly. I’d stay on the ship next time. It’s just a bunch of shops surrounded by nothing - literally people who work there have to drive a long while to get to the port. We also were scammed and sold fake cigars in a shop that looked normal.

Cozumel, Mexico

5 out of 5
I love Cozumel. This time we went to Nachi Cocom and had a great time. Drinks were basic but included. Food was good. They did try to sell us more stuff a few times before our server came out to explain what was already included but they eventually stopped and we had a nice day

Key West, Florida

5 out of 5
I loved key west. We want to go back to stay longer.

George Town, Grand Cayman

5 out of 5
I’d live here full time. It is so beautiful. This time we went to royal palms beach club. It is expensive but beautiful. If you get a regular chair it is super crowded on the beach. We did a cabana. It’s not inexpensive but worth it to get away form crowds. The beach is one of the best I’ve seen. The sand is so soft.

Ft. Lauderdale (Port Everglades), Florida

4 out of 5
Not much to do there the day before departure.
