Celebrity continues to disappoint

Sail Date: May 10, 2014

Reviewed: 2 years ago

Traveled As: Family (young children)

Room Type: Balcony

After the April Hong Kong to Shanghai cruise on the Millenium (see other review) we took the ship from Tokyo to Vancouver.  Some improvements on the Trans-Pacific route.   Cabin ventilation wasn't a problem since we took a balcony cabin and had the door open most of the time - didn't have to sweat all the way across the Pacific.  Since there were a lot of sea days the onboard activities improved a bit - there was more variety each day.  The entertainment improved with a good classical component - a young violinist and Brooks Aaron.  Standing room only concerts and standing ovations.  People were starved for good entertainment and thank goodness we were given this.  It was the highlight of the cruise. 

The food continued to disappoint in its lukewarm, limp, overcooked, underspiced, mass produced way.

All the same cuts in amenities as discussed in my other review which give Celebrity a bare bones feel now instead of a luxury line.

Ship Quality
Still lots of rust being unattended. And the outside windows were still unwashed.
Food and Dining
Lukewarm, dry, unappetizing most of the time.
Cabin / Stateroom
Had to wash the balcony glass because we couldn't see the ocean
Service and Staff
They tried to be cheerful on a cruiseline where rboth they and the passengers are noting all the cuts and reductions.
Brook Aarons and the young violinist were amazing. The rest of the entertainment was ok.
Children's Programs
Onboard Activities
With the large number of sea days the activities were more plentiful and varied.
Destinations and Excursions
Yokohama (Tokyo), Japan
Hakodate, Japan
Muroran (Sapporo), Japan
Petropavlovsk, Russian Federation
The fuss with visas and the lineups to tender ashore made us tear up our paperwork and stay onboard.
Vancouver (Canada Place), British Columbia
The most beautiful city in the world.
