At first glance, the ship is beautiful. Other than that, you are on your own. No cute towel animal in your room at night and no cholocolate at turn down. Spa tries to charge you for service areas that are free and guilts you into buying take home items after payable treatment telling you "what you just paid for will not help if you don't buy and follow up with their EXPENSIVE products". Husbands & wife's be careful, they will see you the same items to take home to the same place. Formal dining is unfriendly and food leaves A LOT to be desired. We ordered a birthday cake for an 18th birthday traveler with us to be delivered to our tabel obn a specific night, it arrived to our stateroom 2 days later to be eaten on the bed with paper plates and no staff presentation. Drinks and Bingo are VERY over priced compared to other cruise lines and all activities seem to be booked at the same time so you can only pick one, then either go to the casino or watch TV in your stateroom. Activities need to be spread out. Not enough scheduled for older teenagers to do. Otherwise, the room as clean and it was easy to get on and off the ship with no waiting and no issues. I would NOT recommend this ship or Celebrity again. We have been on about 15 cruises now, all over the world, and on various lines, but this one was by far the worse overall and most boring. Staff was not friendly either and NEVER went out of their way to help or see if you needed anything, and when they did, they toook FOREVER! We were actually late for Bingo just waiting for the bartender to pour 2 glasses of champagne on our way into the hall as they had no wait/bar staff in the game to serve drinks.
Only select this cruise line or ship if you are traveling with older adults who want to relax, have all night to get served, don't really care about the quality of the food or the activities scheduled on board.
