Review summary

We had a good time! Always like Celebrity, but wish the option for drink packages were a little more affordable and flexible. Ever considered a package where you just buy a specific number of drinks with a punch card or something? We don't drink enough to justify the package (even with the on board special) but do drink every day and would like more flexibility.

Ship experiences

Food and Dining

4 out of 5
Did not visit the specialty restaurants this trip, but all other experiences were good. I wish the noon buffet were open more than 1 1/2 hours, because it is extremely crowded during that time. We went often to the Sky Lounge and frequently encountered a waiter, Razzy Britto, who did a great job!

Onboard Activities

5 out of 5
Went swimming often, attended many of the lectures and also the evening shows. We felt that the evening talent was some of the best we had seen

Service and Staff

Our room steward for room 9103, Nestlin, was fantastic. Always friendly, and did a great job. We asked for ice the first day and he brought fresh ice to us twice a day throughout the cruise and we really enjoyed that.
