14 Night Israel & Mediterranean (Rome Roundtrip)
Sail Date: October 17, 2015
Ship: Celebrity Silhouette
Cabin Type: Balcony
Cabin Number: 6294
Traveled As: Couple

The sole purpose for choosing this particular cruise was the ports of call in Israel.  It was to be a pilgrimage as well as a vacation.  Celebrity knew at least 10 days prior to sailing that they were cancelling the stops in Israel but waited until the night before sailing to advise its passengers of the change, thereby eliminating all other options to postpone or cancel.  It was a wise short-term business decision but in the long-run it has cost Celebrity new and return business.  Many passengers, myself included, completely understood the need to cancel the stops.  What we don't appreciate is being disrespected by Celebrity in waiting until it was too late to reschedule or make other arrangements.  We're going back to Princess.

The attendants were excellent in our rooms, even the others on the same deck but not assigned to us were most attentive and friendly.

No Haifa meant no Cana, no Nazareth, no pilgrimage to Jesus' hometown.

This and Ephesus became the highpoints of the trip. I would return to Malta at the next opportunity. What a beautiful experience.
