Celebrity cruises do have great dining.  One night had a menu from the TV show Top Chef which was great, especially the tomato-watermelon gazpacho.  We were a family of 7 in three rooms and used our on board credit from Lynette at the specialty restaurant Qsine, and what a treat it was.  Quirky, yes.  Worth it, yes.  A larger group dining together made the whole Qsine experience great.  Each guest picked favorite items from an iPad menu and the wait staff "decided" what we would eat and in what order. Presentation was funky and fun  -- think crushed Dorito-wrapped sushi, do-it-yourself guacamole, fish and chips served in popcorn boxes, French fry towers, frost your own cupcake.  We loved Qsine and will do it again.  That said, I would not do Qsine as a couple, or even a foursome; you need a group for the full experience and variety of dishes.

Cabin / Stateroom
Travelling with 5 adults and 2 children we had two connecting rooms and one adjacent (3 in a row). The steward removed the separators on the decks, making the rooms all connect. Rooms were comfortable, bathrooms better than average, and plenty of hangers (I usually bring extras).
Embarkation and Disembarkation
Because we had used the on-line check in system, there were virtually no lines and we were onboard within 30 minutes of arriving.

The ship arrived mid-afternoon so we only had enough daylight to grab a cab to El Moro for sunset pictures. After that, a stroll back to the ship through town, with shopping, is all the time left if you have kids.

There were 6 ships in when we arrived so we were at a more remote dock making shopping and transportation more time consuming.

If you enjoy wine, sign up for the Riedel Glassware wine tasting. The difference a glass makes in the taste of wine is crazy! The cost was $17 and refunded with the purchase of 4 glasses. Having free internet, we made a quick check of Riedel on Amazon and found this a good deal.
