We found the ship, staff, and shows to be excellent. The food and service in Tuscan and Murano restaurants likewise outstanding. However, the Dining Room felt crowded, the menu limited, and the service spotty, The Oceanview Buffet gave many choices and the food overall was good. The bars and entertainment were excellent--Cellarmasters, Ensemble, and Martini lounges, especially nice. The open and spacious Grand Foyer was a nice place to listen to music groups. The Spitfires were an especially good band.
Our cabin was a Cat 1A on the Panorama Deck. We loved the larger balcony and found the bath to be larger than in similar Princess cabins. Storage in the balcony cabin, however, is definitely an issue, much less than Princess and some of it unhandy.
Our major issue was with disembarkation in Ft. Lauderdale. It was a half-mile hike from the ship to the customs area. Princess' disembarkation process is a breeze comparatively.
We like the layout of this Solstice class ship very much and found the activities to be more varied, the entertainment better, and the Go-Best package a treat. We feel that overall Celebrity is a step-up from Princess, except in the Dining Room menus and service and the embarkation/disembarkation.
