We were very disappointed in this cruise. We expected Celebrity to bring a higher standard to their operations in this time where other cruise lines are cutting back on everything. When we cruise now we look for the most interesting cruise ship leaving at a convenient time from one of the 3 south Florida ports. The entertainment is the most important thing to us followed by ease of meals. Celebrity seemed to have cut back on the entertainment. We had seen 3 of the 5 main shows on other Celebrity ships before and this version was definitely inferior. They did a good job on the refurbishment and the ship generally looked new except for some of the upholstered chairs. We won't be cruising on Celebrity again anytime soon.

Quick and efficient
Food and Dining
3 out of 5
The service in the main dining room was incomparable and the food was good. The buffet was good for breakfast and not so good for lunch. The food was generally overcooked and unappetizing. Think high school cafeteria. The pizza however was very good.

Pool was OK . Couldn't find anything to participate in.

We are frequent cruisers. This was our 6th this year. The production shows were amateur. The dancers were often not in sync and the choreography was unimpressive. The first comedian was simply not funny. The "crooner" backed by live music was entertaining. The second comedian was very funny. Most cruise ships we have been on have comedians in one of their lounges in addition to the main stage productions. By having them as headliners they obviously save money and reduce the amount of featured entertainment.
Didn't bring kids and there were very few on board
Service and Staff
3 out of 5
Main Dining room staff were excellent. Buffet staff were slow and not very efficient at cleaning tables. Not enough bar staff on the floor during main meals. Our room steward(es) was very good.

Layout and design was OK. Ship was clean. Recent dry dock freshened up the ship, however, they left most of the upholstered chairs and some had tears on the arms. Our stateroom sofa had two large tears on the armrest.
Cabin / Stateroom
4 out of 5
All OK, except for the "stale" odor. They did not change the sheets for the entire cruise, but they were very high quality and comfortable.
Check the entertainment in advance if you can. On this saiing it was not up to what we expected from Celebrity.
