Overall a good time at good value. Crew was typical of most cruises. Very friendly and accomodating. Dinning room meals were O.K. Not great.The two restautrants, Portifino and Chops were execellent. Only real complaint was the inconsistancies in bar charges. I drink Manhattans. I paid from $5 to $8.50 depending on which bar made the drink. And you don't know until you get the receipt to sign. Apparently different bars use varying qualities of Bourban, and charge accordingly. but they don't tell you first. Also "house wine" red or white is usually available at all bars on most cruise ships. Not on this cruise. Some had both. Some had only "house" red but premium white etc.
Have previously been on 2 Celebrity cruises and this was NOT the case. Additionally, we found Celebrity to be a 'cut above" R.C. in most areas.
