Review summary

We have been on about 12 cruises and this one was one of our favorites. We plan to return to this ship at some point in the near future. Before going on the cruise we weren’t sure if our 12 and 15-year-old children would enjoy it so we did not bring them. We now realize that as low key teenagers that don’t like to do a lot of extracurricular things like zip lining, rock climbing, and wave riders they would also enjoy this ship.

Embarkation

5 out of 5
Traffic into port area a mess and slow. Our hotel was only 10 min. from the port but took an hour to park). Once inside port Celebrity was fast at embarkation.

Ship Quality

The ship is gorgeous! The design is unique and well done. Everywhere you look there is something beautiful and interesting to look at.

Cabin / Stateroom

5 out of 5
We ended up with an inside room because there was no availability one room grade up. The room seemed spacious for an inside room. The bathroom design was excellent and seemed larger than other ships we have been on. My only critique would be that the pillows seemed a little hard and around 3:00 AM every night the air conditioning seems to be shut off. We have experienced this on other cruises as well. I’m not sure why this happens but every night we woke up hot around that time. On a positive note, our cabin was very clean and maintained.

Ship tip

Pool chairs are at a premium so get out early.

Ports of call

Ft. Lauderdale (Port Everglades), Florida

Traffic in and out does not flow well. There should be a separate pick up area for those that are using Uber or Lyft.

San Juan, Puerto Rico

No excursion. Took the water taxi just outside the poor across to the beach area. Once there we bought two beach chairs and umbrellas and enjoyed the beautiful scenery. Later we did some shopping.
