Review summary

Overall this was the best cruise experience we have had. One reason is Captain Tasos who added genuine humor to announcements and is a truly pleasant person. I see his calm leadership reflected in the crew who really cares to do a good job.

Embarkation

5 out of 5
Used the Celebrity app to set everything up ahead of time and from dropping bags at the curb to entering the ship was 10 minutes.

Ship experiences

Food and Dining

5 out of 5
MDR was great with solid service and quality food. Buffet had a good selection at breakfast and lunch. Did not care for the sports theming at Craft Social but the Martini bar and Ensemble was great.

Onboard Activities

4 out of 5
Our favorite was the Solarium pool for the quiet.

Entertainment

5 out of 5
We did not attend any stage shows but the musical acts in the bars are pretty good - solo guitarist was a very good technical player and has a solid voice and the Miacats are very good with a wide range. The musicians for the rest of the groups are very good but the vocalists are not good.

Service and Staff

5 out of 5

Really nice area at the pier with a mix of local entertainment, shops and restaurants resulted in a very relaxed experience.

Cozumel, Mexico

1 out of 5
Truly awful - just stay on the ship unless you want to be hounded to visit every shop selling the same crappy stuff. Hope Celebrity skips this place.

George Town, Grand Cayman Did not visit port

Stayed on the ship for a relaxing day

Disembarkation

5 out of 5
From the time our group was called until we got in a cab was 30 minutes. We got to the airport by 9am to get a rental car.
