Review summary

I GUESS I COMPLAINED ALOT BUT THE WEATHER WAS GOOD AND WE HAD A NICE TIME IN SPITE OF THINGS THAT DID NOT HAPPEN ON THIS CRUISE THAT WE FOUND TO BE NICE ON OTHER CRUISES. WE STILL LIKE CELEBRITY CRUISES AS MOST PASSENGERS WERE VERY NICE, FRIENDLY AND THOUGHTFULLY KIND AND THE STAFF WAS PLEASANT ALSO.

Embarkation

4 out of 5
BECAUSE I WALK WITH A CANE I WAS MOVED AHEAD OF THE CROWD ON OTHER CRUISES BUT NOT THIS ONE

Ship experiences

Food and Dining

4 out of 5
THE FOOD WE SELCECTED WAS GOOD BUT WE WERE NOT HAPPY WITH MANY OF THE SELECTIONS....NEEDS MORE SEAFOOD AND LESS PASTA

Onboard Activities

3 out of 5
THE "ELITE" BAND WAS GREAT BUT AS FAR AS SHOWS WE HAD A LATE SEATING SO WE DID NOT HAVE TO RUSH TO GET READY FOR DINNER BUT THEY NO LONGER HAVE SHOWS AFTER DINNER FOR THE PEOPLE THAT EAT LATE SO WE MISSED THEM

Entertainment

4 out of 5
WE ENJOYED THE ELITE BAND AT NIGHT BUT FINDING A SEAT WHEN THEY PERFORMED IN THE GRAND FOYER IS NEARLY IMPOSSIBLE. WE WERE ON THIS SHIP PREVIOUSLY AND KNEW THIS WAS AN ISSUE BUT I DO NOT UNDERSTAND WHY CELEBRITY DOES NOT PROVIDE MORE SEATING IN THIS AREA.. PEOPLE COME LOOKING TO SIT AND LEAVE WHEN SEATS ARE NOT AVAILABLE??

Children's Programs

NO CHILDREN WITH US

Service and Staff

5 out of 5
EVERYONE WE ENCOUNTERED WAS NICE TO US. HOWEVER IN THE OCEANVIEW CAFE WHERE FOOD IS BUFFET STYLE IT IS DIFFICULT FOR ME WITH A CANE TO CARRY MY FOOD AND I HAVE BEEN HELPED ON OTHER SHIPS BY THE STAFF TO CARRY MY FOOD AND FIND A SEAT BUT NOT ON THIS SHIP. OUR DINING ROOM SERVERS WERE VERY EFFICENT

Ship Quality

5 out of 5
IT IS A LOVELY SHIP AND WELL KEPT IN MOST BUSY AREAS

Cabin / Stateroom

4 out of 5
EVERY THING WAS NICE BUT THE BIG HEAVY COMFORT ON OUR BED WAS A BIT MUCH WOULD HAVE PREFERRED A LIGHT BLANKET

Ship tip

SPECIALTY RESTAURANTS MURANO'S AND THE GARDEN RESTAURANT ON THE TOP FLOOR ARE PERHAPS WORTH THE ADDITIONAL CHARGES AND WE THOUGHT THE DRINK PACKAGES WERE WAY OVERPRICED UNLESS YOU DRINK VERY, VERY MUCH

Ports of call

Ft. Lauderdale (Port Everglades), Florida Did not visit port

WE LIVE IN FLORIDA AHD HAVE SEEN PORT EVERGLADES/FORT LAUDERDALE MANY TIMES

George Town, Grand Cayman Did not visit port

WE WERE THERE SO MANY TIMES ON OTHER CRUISES WE DID NOT FEEL THERE WAS MORE TO SEE

Cartagena, Colombia

5 out of 5
LOVED IT. WE TOOK A HORSE AND BUGGY TOUR AND IT WAS QUITE ENJOYABLE FOLLOWED BY A SHORT BUS TOUR OF THIS INTERESTING CITY

Oranjestad, Aruba

5 out of 5
A VERY ATTRACTIVE ISLAND AND WE HAD AN VERY NICE TOUR OF IT

Willemstad, Curacao

5 out of 5
CURACAO IS ANOTHER VERY ATTRACTIVE ISLAND BUT THE TOUR WE SELECTED HAD MORE WALKING THAN WAS EXPLAINED IN THE DISCRIPTION OF THE TOUR. I HAVE TROUBLE KEEPING UP WITH THE PACE OF THE CROWD BUT THIS TOUR COMPANY DID PROVIDE A PERSON THAT HUNG BACK WITH US TO KEEP US FROM GETTING LOST AND WE REALLY APPRECIATED THI THOUGHTFULNESS OF THEM TO DO THIS

Kralendijk, Bonaire

5 out of 5
WE WERE SURPRISED TO FIND INSTEAD OF AN AIR CONDITIONED MOTOR COACH FOR OUR TOUR IT WAS AN OLD DIRTY TRUCK WITH OPENINGS WHERE WINDOWS ARE EXPECTED. IT WOULD HAVE BEEN OKAY BUT THE ROADS IN BONAIRE WERE VERY ROUGH AND IN ADDITION TO THE WIND IN OUR FACES WE WERE BOUNCED ALMOST OFF OUR SEATS. HOWEVER, IT WAS AN INTERESTING ISLAND WITH THE SALT FLATS WE SAW AND WE WENT SPENT SEVERAL HOURS AT A LOVELY RESORT IN A BEAUTIFUL COASTAL SETTING WHERE WE HAD A VERY TASTY LUNCH.

Disembarkation

5 out of 5
PRETTY AVERAGE EXCEPT AGAIN NO ATTEMPT WAS MADE TO SHORTEN THE LENGTH OF THE WALK DOWN ALL OF THE PATHS EXITING THE SHIP AS HAD BEEN PROVIDED TO ME ON OTHER CRUISES.
