076 see pictures for the... by Archy28

Sail Date: /

076 see pictures for the restricted view. After all the good reviews a bit disappointed. Food wasn’t excellent on captains night we sent 2 plates of food back and on the way out I saw several other unfinished meals on the tables. In general the food was not good in the dated main restaurant and canteen standard in the buffet. The room was reasonably clean, however several times we were not left clean towels and we must have asked 4 or 5 times for a bath mat. Bar and waiter service was very good. There is a shortage of sun beds to guests particularly on sea days. Recommend the bike tours, but be careful to select one that suits your capabilities, some are very hilly.

We had a fab week... by cliff67

Sail Date: /

We had a fab week on this ship, yes it may be an older ship but that gives it character, it is kept spotlessly clean and well looked after. We found it to be a really friendly ship and the staff get to know you as it's a smaller ship. We can't wait for our next cruise on it in September.

Awful by fluffysmum

Sail Date: / Traveled As: Couple

Absolutely awful cabin. 4 adults in 1 room and 2 grown men on the top bunks. Reception staff have an awful attitude as well.

We spent a week on... by vmac23

Sail Date: /

We spent a week on Celebration as a family of 9 during the Easter holidays. After spending a week on discovery 2 last summer we were so impressed how this ships service compared. All staff were so much more attentive and helpful. We never struggled to find seats around the ship at night time and the day at sea there were ample sun beds available. We had lots of ‘motion in the ocean’ and the weather was hit and miss but this didn’t spoil our holiday. The kids club my 7 year old son and nephew attended over the week was well organised with lots to do. He had a small teddy as a leaving gift which he now sleeps with! All entertainment staff made my son feel special when he entered competitions and all took time to speak to him over the holiday. I can’t wait to return to this ship in the future!

Great adventure on first cruise by Cass60

Sail Date: / Traveled As: Singles/Friends

If you are travelling on your own do not be worried. You can have as much company as you want, but you do have to be open to meeting and talking to others. Get to know your other single travellers by going to the organised meetings and well worth attending. If you are on Facebook, you can join a cruise group and find others going on same cruise.

More T & I than U in the middle by Deano68

Sail Date: / Traveled As: Couple

It’s a 50/50, the size of the ship make you feel like a council estate when next to the modern ships and the top level crew made it a class status cruise but the waiting staff and stewards make you want to use TUI again.

12 Island Caribbean Cruise by AgentGeorge

Sail Date: / Traveled As: Couple

You get to sample 12 Islands, from small to large; the smaller ones are undeveloped and have small roads but the people are the friendliest of the lot. Dominican Republic is unlike any of the other islands, avoid it if you want relaxing beaches, jungle adventures and a slow pace of life The ship was tired and shabby, it was due to be sold last year but an extra 5 years is being squeezed out of it. Cabins had poor AC and outdated fittings in the shower

Going Home by cabinsteward

Sail Date: / Traveled As: Family (young children)

 

It was like going home. We met a lot of our old friends, crew and officers, who still treated us like lords. Although this cruise we had my son daughter in law and six month old grandson with us. Everyone on board new him as El Capitano after being called this by the head waiter. Nothing regarding him was any trouble and they as usual were quick to pick up on our requirements. We would have no hesitation in recommending the Celebration to anyone contemplating a cruise with an infant. We have already looked into the Celebration's itinerary to book another cruise, probably to St Petersburg in September.
