Review SummaryMy family and I, including our 19 month old daughter were on the Dec. 15th sailing of the Galaxy. While we all thouroghly enjoyed the ports and the itinerary, some of the "services" that have made Celebrity one of the best were not always observed. Our stateroom I must say was very good. We had an oversized balcony on deck 12 where we enjoyed the room service most mornings. Our daughter really enjoed the balcony as well. We used some of the ship services and entertainment venues with no complaints except for the luggage valet service. The dining room however fell far short of our expectations. We have been on several other cruises and the one aspect of the cruise that stood out was the dining room service. The food would be considered good compared to that of average restaurants in town, but average compared to other cruises we have been on.
The dining room service however, was far from expectations. In fact I receive better service at many local chain restaurants. Mind you my big rule for good service is, how long do I have to wait for my Iced Tea to be refilled? I would think after ordering Iced Tea every night, that the moment I sat down or by the 4th, 5th, 6th or at least on tip night, my Iced Tea would be waiting for me and not the other way around. Refills were often slower than the original drink order. The same would happen with our daughter, so we just statrted going to the buffet for her milk before dinner. It was easier.
Overall we were able to relax and enjoy the cruise, primarily due to relaxing ports and the balcony.
