Excellent cruise

Sail Date: August 06, 2006

Reviewed: 10 years ago

Traveled As: Family w/older children

Room Type: Balcony

Great ship, well designed and user-friendly. Crew eager to help, cruise director friendly and professional. Shows were good, but we would have liked a magician. Our cabin for four practical and beds very confortable. Too many kids in the Adult-only AquaSpa and not enough policing.

Pros: The ship and the itinerary

Cons: Sound too loud in theater, complicated and confusing tipping system

Ship Quality
Food and Dining
We cruise Celebrity for the food, actually. We know it will be excellent.
Cabin / Stateroom
Well-designed cabin.
Service and Staff
Nice people.
Is the sound technician deaf by now? Why do the shows have to be so loud, which drowns the quality of the music/songs and turns a show into a screech.
Dubrovnik, Croatia
Don't take the boat shuttle for 10 dollars a person when a taxi into town, available at the pier, is 10 dollars a family.
Don't Miss: Walk the wall around the city.
Barcelona, Spain
Yes there is the Sagrada Familia and Picasso Museum. Take the kids to the Chocolate Museum (near the Picasso) . For kids, the Aquarium in the harbor is good. Nice collection of fishes.
Don't Miss: Try the zoo, which is pretty amazing and has animals we've never seen before.
Naples, Italy
Take a tour to Pompei in the morning. Back to ship for lunch. Then go to the city museum to see wall paintings and treasures from Pompei. If you don't have kids, and are rested, do the tour to Capri in addition to Pompei.
Don't Miss: city museum with artifacts from Pompei.
Villefranche-Sur-Mer, France
Hop on the public bus to Nice. The old city is to the left of the bus terminal. Walk-through and enjoy the market, ice-cream, stores. Buy sweets and walk to the beach for a nice swim.
Don't Miss: The ice-cream. How often do you get to try Lavender ice cream
Venice, Italy
Walk, just walk through the town, for a good flavor. Take public boat to Murano (don't spend on an excursion to go there, you can do it on your own.)
Don't Miss: Take a gondola, but on a side street to avoid being ripped off at St. Mark's Square
Piraeus (Athens), Greece
Noisy, polluted, Acropolis poorly organized. Bring a guide book, narrow down your activities for the day and watch out for taxi drivers. We got REALLY ripped off. They were RUDE, I mean THIEVES.
Don't Miss: Acropolis' new museum, so you don't have to go over to the city's museum.
Civitavecchia (Rome), Italy
The basilica is a must. Three hour wait for the Sistine Chapel.
Don't Miss: Do the "Rome on your own" tour, so you can pace yourself and not have stop everything to get back to the tour bus.
Livorno (Florence & Pisa), Italy
Pisa is a great half-day excursion. Get tickets for the tower on the internet before leaving home or get there early.
Don't Miss: Take a horse-drawn carriage through town.
Santorini, Greece
Don't bother going to the archaeological sites. Wall through Fira and hop on a bus to the beach.
Don't Miss: The museum in Fira with wall paintings from the archaeological sites.
