Loved The Cruise

Sail Date: October 02, 2015

Reviewed: 1 year ago

Traveled As: Couple

Room Type: Balcony

Corazon was our room valet, and she was wonderful; excellent job. Dudley was our asst. waiter, and we loved him; beautiful smile, and so nice; did a great job...deserves to be a full waiter. Cyrel was our waiter and did a good job. Food was unbelievable...always good, and such a variety. Ship clean & sanitized. Room nice size and comfortable. /we joined our balcony with 2 other couples and enjoyed hanging out on it. We thought the evening shows were marginal. Two magicians, and they did 2 of the same tricks. We looked forward to a staff variety show, but there was none. Compared to other ships, the evening entertainment was definitely lacking. Woman singers were good.  We loved the covered drink package, that was included, as was the tip package and $300 on board credit. Celebrity was extremely efficient in organizing passengers, esp getting on and off ship. Could not hear announcements in our room..had to go out in the hall. Liked the way the safety drill was handled.  Al in all, a super trip.

Cabin / Stateroom
We were actually in 7322 beside our friends in 2 adjacent cabins. so we had the partitions taken down between our balconies and enjoyed hanging out there together. Bathroom and room spacious enough...lots of storage if you use the shelving over the bed, too. Liked the spacious shower. Could use more counter space in bathroom. Heating & air worked well.
Embarkation and Disembarkation
Fabulous efficient job...never seen better.
Ship Quality
Beautiful, modern spacious and clean.
Destinations and Excursions
Destinations fine. We should have used shhip excursions. We went another company who liked to dump us off and look for ourselves. We like to have tour guide talk about the country, about the culture & history, as we are
driving to an excursion destination. We like to be accompanied in the museum or wherever, to have impt points pointed out to us, and info about what we are seeing.
Onboard Activities
we did not take advantage of many onboard
activities, so can't really rate them.
Children's Programs
we took no children...very few on board.
I already commented that this was the big disappointment on the cruise. We have seen fabulous programs on other ships and cruise lines. We really didn't like the phoniness of the cruise director, either. He was way over the top in fake enthusiasm. The two womnan singers were good, and I lied the movie, but it should have been shown at an alternate time, not as the main evening program.
Service and Staff
Excellent in all ways. Everyone friendly and very helpful. Corazon was wonder room valet. Dudley was great asst. waiter...nice smile, very friendly and helpful...will make great full waiter. Cyril nice and good job.
Food and Dining
Can't use enough exclamatory adjectives, it was so plentfiul,, and good and varied.
