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.

Celebration good cruiser by Gaterboy

Sail Date: / Traveled As: Couple

Hi this was my first time on a cruise found Celebration to be very clean and tidy staff were extremely helpful food there was plenty of choice entertainment was something to watch every night and they tried hard to put in a variety of shows would certainly try another cruise as and when one popped its head I have already booked a trip to Arruba in May with Thompsons but this is on land in a hotel

That's Not Entertainment by Alicante

Sail Date: / Traveled As: Couple

Good bits = food in 'smash and grab'.  Very palatable house wines

Poor bits = slow service and poor menu selection in Meridan Restaurant

Worse bit = Entertainment.  Usually on Thomson there is a variety of musical entertainment but there was no classical duo on this cruise and the show team could dance but the boys' singing was poor.  We had a repeat of previous shows eg Queen, Michael Jackson (poor singing) and a Brit Awards type show which was just shouty singing of modern pop songs.  They did try with the Cameron Macintosh songs (which was more to the audience's taste) were better but you need good singers to pull it off.

Entertainment on day at sea- included talks on water retention and frozen shoulder, yes really!

Why are public rooms on ships always blasting out cold air.  A vest under your nice evening dress is most unbecoming!

Smokers on board were allocated the nicest part of deck 6 with bar and view of poolside entertainment.  They also had on side of deck 6 so if you chose to gain access to the outside you had to fight your way through the smokers who were blocking the doorway

Cabin 672 was clean with plenty of storage but tired and dated

Organisation - what was written in cruise news wasn't exactly accurate with changes of venues/meeting points for excursions etc

Excursions - overpriced

Ports of call - good, apart from Bahrain.  Why go there?  There isn't even a wi-fi spot in the cruise terminal.

General  pre cruise information very poor.  For example I prefer to know before I book the accessibility of the town from the port and if a free shuttle bus is included.

Flights - For some reason I thought we would be on the new 787 Dreamliner.  No, the night flight (with insufficient blankets, you had to share with your neighbour) was on a 767.  The seats seemed very narrow for a long haul.  The aircraft was freezing.

Food was ok and they were generous with the alcohol.  As a cost cutting exercise Thomson are using the new Al Maktoum Dubai airport which is a 60 minute drive from the ship
