Review SummaryMy wife and I have been avid cruisers for about 5 years now. We have cruised on all the major cruise lines. This was our first cruise with Celebrity and all I can say is WOW!
The boat is fairly new so we were expecting it to be nice. That is an understatement. This boat is beautiful the whole way through. From the theater all the way back to the main dining room this boat is first class.
The food was the best we have experienced on a cruise. The buffet had a great selection from all over the world. My wife is now addicted to Indian food thanks to the wonderful curry they offered at lunch. The main dining room is gorgeous and the food is top notch. We did dine one night in Tuscan which is one of the other restaurants. The food in Tuscan is on par with some of the finer restaurants we have in our area.
Entertainment was again top notch. The singers and dancers on this boat did 3 amazing shows. They also brought on a comedian, another specialty singer, and a couple of Cirque type performers. We went to the shows every evening and left impressed each time. And if you want live music just go for the house band who will knock your socks off. They even have a guest appearance from time to time by the cruise director who may be the best male vocalist on the boat.
There were also a couple extras like "The Lawn" up top which was a great place to relax during a sea day. Also if you are into wine the have "Cellar Masters" which is a wine bar that has automatic dispensing machines and some wonderful sommeliers to help you choose if you are not sure what to pick. And of course there is the casino if you are into that.
We booked this cruise only 2 weeks in advance so we did not have many rooms to choose from. We ended up with an inside room. This may not have been the biggest we have had but someone put some planning into how it was laid out. This made all the difference as it felt bigger than it actually was. Our room steward was wonderful and kept our room clean but did it without ever making us feel like we were in the way.
If you are debating taking a cruise on this boat i would highly recommend it. The boat is beautiful and the staff is wonderful. You cannot go wrong.
