Excellent Total Vacation Experience

Traveled As: Couple

Room Type: Oceanview

The Galaxy is just the right size for us. Large enough to have lots to do, and loads of room but not so large that it is overwhelming.

Pros: Ship was as clean all the time as if it were brand new

Recommends Celebrity Galaxy (RETIRED) 53? Yes!

Ship Quality
Cleanliness was outstanding. Easy access from deck to deck. Logical layout made learning your way around pretty easy.
Food and Dining
The food was fabulous - perhaps too fabulous according to my scale once I got home! Evening dinner choices had something for everyone, and were comparable to eating in
a five star restaurant. Different desserts each night were too tempting to deny even once. Breakfast and lunch choices were many and just as delicious.
Cabin / Stateroom
Ocean view stateroom was more spacious than expected, and well designed for maximum storage and usability. Bathroom was quite spacious as well for a ship's cabin. Well decorated, and window was large for good ocean and port viewing. Mattress was very, very comfortable!
Service and Staff
The ship's staff was outstanding, from stateroom attendants to wait staff in dining rooms, to pool butlers to medical staff. They almost anticipate your needs before you could get it out of your mouth! The staff is courteous and friendly and professional.
Broadway style shows, stand up comics and musicians made for a varied and lively entertainment schedule. Something for just about everyone.
Philipsburg, St. Maarten
A beautiful town, beautiful beaches, and the best shopping on the cruise. We took a taxi to the French side and saw how lovely the island is.
Don't Miss: Shopping
Bridgetown, Barbados
Beautiful beaches, great people.
St. George's, Grenada
A very interesting island to explore. Beaches were not as great as the other islands, but still very relaxing.
Our favorite island on the cruise. The town is just beautiful with its many colored buildings. Very reminiscent of Amsterdam. Beautiful beaches, lovely people. We'd like to spend a week here.
Don't Miss: The town
Castries, St. Lucia
We took a deep sea fishing excursion through the cruise line and were disappointed. Not by the lack of fish caught (that's just the way of fishing) but by the lack of interaction on the boat. It was more like a lovely, but expensive, boat ride due to the fact that the crew did all the work (fun). We didn't touch a fishing rod all day due to the fish not biting. They only give you the rod once a fish had been hooked by them. This was a disappointment to us as we have fished many times and hooked them ourselves, as well as a disappointment to another man on the trip who had never deep sea fished before.
Road Town, Tortola, B.V.I.
My least favorite stop on this cruise. We did visit a beautiful beach, but there wasn't much to the town. Not a good shopping stop
Oranjestad, Aruba
Beautiful beaches but windy. Cute town.
