The port was awful - 3 hour wait to check in after waiting 1 hour to get a ride from the parking lot to the port. No water, any place to sit, or explanation given for the long lines. Got a letter on our bunk in the stateroom two days ... Read more

Summary: This is a very nice upscale cruise ship. BUT I had heard a lot of hype about how good Celebrity was and the reality didn't live up to the hype. There are other Cruise Lines which are superior to at least this one experience. ... Read more

Decided to go on the Christmas cruise for a change with my husband and our two teenage boys. Even though we are New Zealanders we thought it would be cool to see NZ coastline from the sea. We have travelled a lot but never on a cruise. On ... Read more

We found a number of issues which would need to be improved significantly if we were to be enticed back on a Celebrity cruise. 1. Safety. Asking passengers to assemble in either a theater or dining rooms was simple not practical in the ... Read more
