We were two woman in our late 60's traveling together. We love to listen to music at night and enjoy a nice drink before dinner. The music was all the same, every night, with the same song....longed for a nice piano player. The show were nice and some of the talent brought in where excellent. We bought the dining package so ate at the three extra restaurants in the package. Murano was excellent, Tuscan Grill beyond expectations so ended up eating their 3 times. The total disappointment was the Silk - I enjoy good Thai/Viet food - what a disappointment- everything was soy based - when I asked about their "style" she said they have "westernized" everything. Not good. We selected the classic beverage package.....only thing was that their wine selection was limited and boring. Finally upgraded to the premium package but found out most of their wine by the glass was sold old. Because of the addition of the "Suite" dining room, the main room has now lost 150 seats....we were NEVER able to find a set table - some of the food was good some bad.....the menu was one page - offering mostly the same appetizers every night. One night we couldn't face the "Hall" one more time so ate at the café. No, we would not cruise again on Celebrity but YES we would use the booking company we did AGAIN.

Best bartenders are at the Passport Bar....also close to the "nightly" music. Try to catch the first night show so you will know the quality and variation of the performances. Some EXCELLENT so ok. Take your own maps of the island with you....they do NOT provide them at the Tour Desk.
