Wow...disappointing.  Always looked forward to a celebrity cruise but the food quality has gone down.  Taking away huge portions was a great idea...taking away the flavor and quality...will make us think twice before booking again.  Even the speciality restaurants were just average...with Silk Harvest being the worst.  Captains Club members will see less perks in the way of coupons taking away the incentive to rebook.  Cabin carpets and drapes were frayed, found used Qtips left by previous passenger in our stateroom and carpet in the Oceanview Grill was filthy. Staff and crew were as friendly and helpful as always, but this cruise was not up to the usual Celebrity standards.  Not certain if celebrity intends to make 2 days in a port the norm, but it is a bad idea in our opinion...especially in places like Columbia.  Overall, this back-to-back cruise was just so-so.  Booked with Oceania for March in hopes it will be better.  Have 4 more cruises booked with celebrity for the future, but may opt out if Oceania is with the extra money.

Cabin / Stateroom
Used Qtips found from last passenger meant countertop was never cleared and cleaned. Glad we brought our own sanitizing wipes.
Embarkation and Disembarkation
Ship Quality
In need of an overhaul. Showing its age. Not the cleanest ship in the fleet. Pull away the deck lounges on deck 14 and you will see it hasn't been cleaned under there in quite a while. Yuck
Service and Staff
Great staff
Food and Dining
Food quality has gone down...at least on this ship. Bland and unimaginative. Big disappointment.


Wait until she goes in for an overhaul.
