Review summary

Embarkation

Ship experiences

Food and Dining

4 out of 5
We had Select Dining and the food was tasty - though not always hot. Very relaxed environment and the waiter (Oleksandr), the attendant (Melissa) and our wine steward (Clive) were excellent!

Onboard Activities

3 out of 5

Entertainment

5 out of 5
Stage shows were GREAT. Sue provided for a variety of very talented musicians, comedians, and the Celebrity Singers and Dancers were wonderful. The Murder Mystery Nights were so much fun. It is just too bad that they only had 2 nights given the very limited seating.

Service and Staff

4 out of 5
As I stated earlier our waiters and servers in the Dining Room were GREAT. As were the bartenders and servers in the Casino. We had 3 different room stewards for whatever reason. It was unfortunate that we had to continually call to ask for breakfast menus to be brought to us - as they never left any when they did their evening preparation.

Ship Quality

3 out of 5
It was very congested in the promenade area espcially when they set up sales events.

Cabin / Stateroom

2 out of 5
The size and cleanliness were good but our room was very - used. Our couch was so worn there were cracks in the material on the arms that would scratch our skin.

Ship tip

It is a smaller, older ship and there is storage above your bed in the inside state room that may or may not be pointed out by your room steward.

Ports of call

Civitavecchia (Rome), Italy

4 out of 5
Costly to get from Rome to the Port. It is too bad that Celebrity doesn't arrange a Shuttle from the Train Station.

Livorno (Florence & Pisa), Italy

5 out of 5
We attended the wine tasting and despite the rainy weather the location and owners were wonderful.

Toulon, France

Storm and the Captain changed course which we greatly appreciated!!

Barcelona, Spain

4 out of 5
No excursion. Did the hop on hop off bus and it was very good.

Palma De Mallorca, Balearic Islands

5 out of 5
Once again no excursion and we explored Palma De Mallorca on our own. The only real problem with this port were the hours we had. Many of the stores weren't open before 10 and were closed from 1:30 to 4:30 or 5:00; and we had to be back on the ship by 4:30 so our shopping was very limited.

Santa Cruz De Tenerife, Canary Islands

5 out of 5
Beautiful - no excursion

Ft. Lauderdale (Port Everglades), Florida

5 out of 5
We are very familiar with Fort Lauderdale and go there every year. Love it.

Disembarkation

2 out of 5
It seemed very disorganized and all ships were disembarking at that same time. We were VERY lucky to notice the Global Travellers line. We were not advised that there would be one or how to get there. Such a GREAT option as our wait time was HUGELY reduced.
