Review summary

I provided detailed comments above about the ship, room and stops. This was a well run cruise, managed by a well run company.

Embarkation

5 out of 5
Celebrity continues to streamline embarkation. This was the easiest yet...no lines, less than 10 minutes from arrival at port to entering ship

Ship experiences

Food and Dining

5 out of 5
We very much enjoyed Luminae (especially Edwin and Oleksandar, and Carlos) and the specialty restaurants (6 visits)

Onboard Activities

4 out of 5
This cruise seemed as if it had fewer choices than some cruises and of course some things we wanted to participate in conflicted with one another.

Entertainment

4 out of 5
Better than most cruises

Children's Programs

no kids

Service and Staff

Cabin / Stateroom

4 out of 5
Was quite nice! would have been excellent however the one day weather afforded the best opportunity to use the deck, there was a mist which was laden with some white stuff (later was told it was white ash) which stained our clothing, books, etc. None of the ship's personnel, including the officer in charge of housekeeping had ever witnessed this before. Additionally, despite turning our HVAC to the lowest setting (coldest possible), the heat still came on during the night. We solved the problem by opening our deck door every night to allow cool air into the suite and using a sheet only for sleeping (no blankets).

Ports of call

Copenhagen, Denmark

4 out of 5
enjoyed a walking tour provided by a provider other than the ship

Tallinn, Estonia

4 out of 5
the excursion Mideval (sic) Rakvere and Tallinn tour we did was lame. Far too much time spent at an old fort, designed for adolescents to learn about fort life. Far too little time spent in old town Tallinn

St. Petersburg, Russian Federation

5 out of 5
used a local tour company which was outstanding.

Helsinki, Finland

4 out of 5

Nynashamn (Stockholm), Sweden

4 out of 5

Warnemunde (Berlin), Germany

Disembarkation

5 out of 5
smooth and easy. As I said at the outset, Celebrity has mastered embarkation and disembarkation.
