The ship was beautiful\, very clean\, and well maintained. Our Cabin and balcony were a little smaller than we have had on previous cruises\, and we could have used a little more storage space\, but it was definitely adequate and very nice. Overall\, the food was excellent\, well prepared and served hot. Our servers in the main dining room were friendly\, professional and very efficient. We tried three of the specialty restaurants and were very pleased with both Silk and Murano. Service in the Tuscan Grill left much to be desired. We enjoy leisurely fine dining\, but this was slow that was way beyond leisurely. We actually left before the entree was served as it took so long. We especially enjoyed the Wine Cellar and the Martini Bar It was a show to watch the bartenders prepare the drinks. The poolside grill had great burgers and fries and deck chairs were plentiful. We found the staff to be friendly\, helpful and professional throughout the ship. The main stage show \"Equinox The Show\" is absolutely unbelievable. Definitely should not be missed. There was a large cast of performers who would have been at home on any Broadway Stage. Totally fabulous. The other entertainers were also excellent with the exception of one group that we felt was just not up to the quality of the rest of the ship. We enjoyed most of the ports\, but did not particularly like the excrusion to the rain forest in Costa Rica. We did not feel that it was worth the price for what we actually were able to see. One fabulous service that Celebrity offered was the luggage valet. They printed our airline boarding passes and airline luggage tags which we placed on the luggage. Then\, they picked up the luggage the night before we arrived in Ft. Lauderdale and took it directly to the airline where they checked it to our home destination. We did not have to deal with the issues of picking it up and going through customs with it prior to going to the airport\, or checking it in at the airp
