Review summary

We had a great time after some anxious weeks following the hurricanes and making changes to our initial plans of staying in San Juan - that had to ne canceled - and not knowing what to expect.


4 out of 5
It was a little slow, but ok. There was no air conditiining at the port. The shuttle that Celebrity provided from the airport was horrible. Too many people and only little vans.

Ship experiences

Food and Dining

4 out of 5
We had a great server ( McCoy) and others (Sophia,for wines) who made dining in the dining room a pleasure. The buffet food was good, too, but they need more help serving coffee and drinks. Rarely was served coffee at breakfast. Loved the pizza maker and eggs benedict!

Onboard Activities

Enjoyed the pools. Didn't do other activities on the ship.

The shows were excellent. The various singers around the ship were also good.

Service and Staff

Service was very good except for getting coffee in the buffet area in the morning, or drinks at lunch.

Ship Quality

We really like the older, smaller ships. It was very clean.

Cabin / Stateroom

The space was fabulous. Chair and sofa were old and need to be replaced, but the bed and linens were very nice. The deck was huge!

Ship tip

Definitely go to see the shows.

Castries, St. Lucia

Definitely do an excursion here otherwise you are swamped at the port by drivers and tour agents. We were taken to a horrible beach with dirty, broken chairs, no bathrooms, or food. The island has liter everywhere. It was such a disappointment.

St. John's, Antigua

5 out of 5
We did the catamaran ride with lobster lunch, snorkeling, and beaches. It was worth every cent! The whole crew was so much fun and everyone enjoyed it.

Basseterre, St. Kitts
