Review summary

Not the best cruise we have been on, the celebrity website is not very good, was not able to log on to my account or getting locked out many times. I purchased a photo package that was supposed to be unlimited but then was told told I could only have 5 photos a day. There relaxation spa was disappointing only had small steam room and few heated chairs. The food was all over from great to awful. Bartenders would pass you by6 for someone holding a dollar bill in hand.

Not sure why they call it guest relations had a few problems and when I went there they can’t do anything to fix them they call to have others fix. Took me 4 days to get a charge taken off my account and last day they wanted to make up for mistakes photo gallery made.

Key West, Florida

This is such a beautiful place you can just walk around and see everything yourself. Nice restaurants, bars, and museums to visit.

Costa Maya (Mahahual), Mexico

Excursion was great but the fact that you have to be hounded by vendors to get through is very disappointing. Some of them can be very rude if you say no to them.

Cozumel, Mexico

We have been there so many times we chose not to do an excursion. Wanted to maybe do some gift shopping but again vendors very pushy and the prices were just to high for cheap things.

George Town, Grand Cayman

Haven’t been there for years and I remember it being a nice clean wonderful port, not so much anymore it was dirty very crowded (3 other ships ther at same time) the time it takes to tender back and forth is not worth it. They have nicer stores than most ports but that’s about all you can do without taking a bus or cab.
