Review summary

Fantastic ship and cruise line - would definitely cruise Celebrity again.

Embarkation

4 out of 5
Security to get into Terminal 29 at Ft Lauderdale was a bit of a bottleneck, slow and disorganized. After security the check-in was smooth.

Ship experiences

Food and Dining

5 out of 5
Dining was Excellent. We took a specialty dining package this cruise and dined at Murano (twice), Tuscan Grill (twice), Qsine, Sushi on Five and Lawn Club Grill. We had been disappointed with Lawn Club Grill from our previous cruise, so gave it another try. Unfortunately it was disappointing again, and lacked atmosphere.

Oceanview Cafe and Bar

4 out of 5

Always a wide selection

Bistro on Five

4 out of 5

This is now Sushi on Five - worth a visit for a casual dinner

Murano Restaurant

5 out of 5

Murano is the best restaurant on this ship by far !

Onboard Activities

4 out of 5
These were good, but as there were a lot of port days, we didn't partake in many.

Entertainment

3 out of 5
The entertainment was mixed. The bands around the ship were great, but the shows in the theater were hit and miss - didn't like the comedian much (walked out)

Children's Programs

No children

Service and Staff

5 out of 5
As always, this was exceptional

Ship Quality

5 out of 5
Still a bit confused why the Solarium would lead into the Sky Lounge - this is different to other Solstice Class ships

Cabin / Stateroom

4 out of 5
Comfortable and spacious, but a little noisy from creaking walls being higher on the ship. I would select a lower deck next time

Ship tip

Enjoy the Lawn Club. It is unique to this class of ship and is a great place to relax - whether you have one of the Alcoves or not.

Ports of call

Ft. Lauderdale (Port Everglades), Florida

5 out of 5

George Town, Grand Cayman

Cartagena, Colombia

4 out of 5
Had been here before, so just had a relaxing walk around the old town

Oranjestad, Aruba

Beaches in Aruba are Amazing, so are the Sunsets
