10 Night Best Of The Mediterranean (Rome Roundtrip)
Sail Date: August 25, 2006
Ship: Celebrity Galaxy
Cabin Type: Balcony
Traveled As: Large Group
Reviewed: 11 years ago
There were three adults in our group - all family. Overall, the cruise was pleasant with a few of the exceptions noted on the deembarkation from the ship and two or three of the shore excursions. The exit from the ship at the end of the cruise was a nighmare! Celebrity employees acted as though they had never heard of anyone going anywhere but the airport to go home! We did everything according to Celebrities instructions, but apparently they had failed to advise their employees on how to handle this procedure. With that exception, the rest of the employees were outstanding, and did a fine job.

Food and Dining

5 out of 5
Overall quality of food very good. Lobster on final formal evening was outstanding. Wait service was excellent.

Two shore excursions to Santorini & Mykonos, Greece were dusty, dirty and somewhat uninteresting. Celebrity needs to review these two excursions. Also, tour of museum in Naples - dirty, cobwebs, and quite dull. Clean the place up!

Ship Quality

Smaller than our previous cruise on the Constellation, but certainly not crowded. All amenities seem to be present.

Cabin / Stateroom

Very small, but we were aware before purchasing cruise. Veranda was OK but could use some repainting and cleaning.
