Ship tip

Warning! The ship had run aground a few months ago and was out of service for several months. We called Celebrity about a month before we sailed and we’re told the ship was already back in service. However, we were actually the first time it sailed. We were told that previous sailings were cancelled each week two days before embarkation! Most people had other travels arranged before and/or after the cruise. Celebrity dropped the ball in cancelling week after week. (Celebrity- if there is more to the story, please post). Still, we did get to go and it was an amazing experience!
