Review summary

All in all a good cruise. Better than NYC in the snow. Nice balance of sea and port days.

Embarkation

5 out of 5
Very helpful staff who got us through embarkation quickly- directed us to handicapped line which was very helpful. If you need a wheelchair you need to get it OUTSIDE the terminal when you first arrive.

Ship experiences

Food and Dining

5 out of 5
The main dining room was much less congested than on the Equinox. Murano was a lovely room with good service, enjoyed the Tuscan grill. The Café also had a good selection and good quality of choices.

Bistro on Five

5 out of 5

Now Sushi on Five- this is a great place to go to when you first get on the boat. Nice assortment of choices- not just Sushi.

Onboard Activities

4 out of 5
Would be nice if spa still sold daily passes to the Persian garden

Solarium

3 out of 5

We picked this boat based on the availibility of the indoor pool. However we are finding that over the past few years Celebrity chooses not to heat the water. The room is air conditioned so it has become a less pleeasnat experience.

Entertainment

4 out of 5
Intersting group of musicians on board. Also enjoyed the comedians.

Cabin / Stateroom

4 out of 5
Bed is very comfortabel but the sofa was like a rock. What happened to the storage? Bathroom is a nice size.

Ship tip

There is a coffee machine on deck 7 in the Hideaway. Coffee is set up at 7am. Gangway entrance is on the port side so when docking we tended to face another ship. would suggest getting starboard cabin.

Ports of call

St. John's, Antigua

5 out of 5
Took the Hevenly Tours Antiguan Experience tour. Jacqui is a hoot .Great tour to the MC Millan home and then lunch on the beach cooked by Jacqui's mother. Not to be missed if you want something a bit different.

Basseterre, St. Kitts

4 out of 5
Took the Amazing Grace train tour. The train ride is very nice although the time was moved to 8:30. Then went to the museum for John Newton who wrote the famous hymn. The company who ran this tour seemd disorganozed and we wound up driving back and forth to the museum.

Disembarkation

2 out of 5
Crew tried hard. On board things went well. For people with mobility issues getting on buses was a real problem. NO step stools to get up steps. Then a very long wait for cabs outside the termonal and we were among the last off. Would not book at Ft Lauderdale until they get the new terminals built and things are back to normal.
