This ship is absoultely beautiful. Well maintained and the staff was wonderful. Boarding could not have been easier and finding our way around the ship was made simple by the helpful staff. We stayed in the Aqua class which offers a few perks, including eating at the restaurant Blu for no additional charge. Wow what a waste of money that was. The food as well as the service in Blu and in the main dining room was terrible. We tried Blu first and was so disappointed that we then tried the main dining which was even worse. The best thing I can say about the 24hr buffet is that they had salad, cause everything else up there was near inedible. Thank goodnes for the specialty restaurants, although they were near a hundred dollars for two, else we would of not had a decent meal the whole week. Qsine is a must, alot of fun and outstanding food. Murano and Tuscan Grille were also wonderful. Would not do this ship again and probably would not cruise Celebrity if the food on all the ships is this poor.
On board activities were good. Did not do any shore excusrsions, spent that allotted money at the specialty restaurants. Disembarking was just as easy as embarking. They do a great job there.
If you decide to do this cruise with Celebrity make sure you do it for everything but the food.
