Catching the 2.00am Coach from Belfast to Dublin Airport for the 6.40am flight to Barcelona was perhaps not the greatest way to start a cruise but the plus side of the coin was that we would be some of the earlier arrivals in Barcelona and ... Read more

Our fourth Celebrity Cruise and service, accommodations, meals were excellent. That said, the volume of the ever present music was overwhelming. It ruined the enjoyment of the Martini Bar, it bled over into the Molecular Bar, it ... Read more

Cruise was just average. Food was ok....nothing great. And it got boring in the Café as it was almost the same thing every day for 13 days for breakfast, lunch and snacks. Also, the Café was overcrowded and it was hard ... Read more

This cruise was only at sea 3 days of 14. All of our shore adventures made it a rather intense cruise. We enjoyed our 2 weeks on this cruise. Embarkation was quick and painless. Due to some extra cleaning that had to be done, we were ... Read more

Picked this cruise because of the ports of call, but found the cruise company to be poor. The food on board was bland, over cooked and lacking in any quality. We visited Spain, France, Italy, Greece and Turkey and non of the meals were ... Read more

After having sailed 9 times with Celebrity this one was a BAD one. 3 of the 9 ports of call were very, totally, disappointing. Industrial harbors with container activity ongoing. What fun to sit on your balcony when coming back on the ... Read more
