Ship experiences

Food and Dining

5 out of 5
The food was very good, Buffet was also very good with a lot of choices. Main dinning room food was good, we only wished there had been a few more choices as some of the nightly meals were quite different. WE had dinner at Tuscan and hada fantastic dinner and evening well worth a bit of extra dollars.

Onboard Activities

4 out of 5
Celebrity tends to be an older crowd, still plenty to do. Lawn games tough to get at as there are only a few sets of each type and with people laying on the lawns certain games are difficult.

Entertainment could have been better as many venues don't have any, style of this ship may limit what they can do. Some entertainment ended earlier than expected, such as a bar with a single musician that could have gone later.

Children's Programs

No children in our group.

Service and Staff

4 out of 5
Most of the staff was very good. Pool deck service was slow and limited as they did not have many pool waiters and we never saw one in the solarium pool even after we asked. Overall good though and as usual some more friendly than others.

Ship Quality

5 out of 5
The ship was different than we were used to but liked it as well.

Clean and comfy with a balcony to add to the trip.

Ports of call

Miami, Florida

5 out of 5
Beautiful place with a lot to do.

Key West, Florida

5 out of 5
Easy to get around even if you are walking. If you can't find something to do or see it is your fault.

Costa Maya (Mahahual), Mexico

4 out of 5
Outside the port it is a bit dirty and not much to see. We did the Dune buggy excursion and had a great time.

Cozumel, Mexico

Wish I could say more. We tried to do the Tulum and beach break but with me sometimes prone to motion sickness I took 2 Dramamine and still did not survive the Ferry to the dock 45 minutes of ****. Had to stay in Playa Del Carmen at the dock for almost 2 hours before I could even move. The area was ok shops both sides of the streets, shop owners hounding to sell their wares.

George Town, Grand Cayman

5 out of 5
Beautiful Island. We did the Dolphin Adventure and our guide or Dolphin trainer Laura was fantastic, and Sally and Lucy the Dolphins were playful and fun to ride. Great experience.
