We stayed at Hotel Executive Suites in Carteret, NJ the evening prior to our cruise with our group. The hotel was reasonably priced and there is a bar and restaurant there. Our stay included a breakfast. The drive to the port was ... Read more

Embarkation Day was just as bad as we expected and then some. The lines were very long and no provisions were made for the elderly and mobility impaired. There was no food provided until you were on your assigned bus to Ensenada and no ... Read more

Embarcation started smoothly at San Diego Airport. Celebrity met us and directed us to buses and our bags were taken to trucks. I asked the representative if we needed our paperwork i.e. set & sail pass and was told no just needed credit ... Read more

Before going on the special Top Chef cruise we read the reviews here to get an idea of what to expect. Almost everything was different on this cruise from what we had expected. It was my first cruise and her second. It's very likely ... Read more

We are unseasoned at cruising, so consider these comments with that perspective. Our previous cruise experience was limited to a 50-passenger trip though the Greek isles on the Sea Cloud -- a wholly different experience than that offered ... Read more

This was a group of 34 cruisers, most over 70, and most on their first cruise. I chose the Reflection because I felt it would provide a positive cruise experience for these folks with sufficient variety in food and entertainment for all. ... Read more

This is our first Celebrity cruise and we are mostly happy with it. The lady that took care of us at embarkation was efficient but not very friendly and the security people were scary. However, I felt better when we boarded we were ... Read more

After reading the recent horrendous reviews of the Celebrity Millennium, I was really very worried that we had chosen the wrong vacation. My experience was overall decent (but not excellent). There are no "WOW" moments on the Celebrity ... Read more

Not planning on writing a long review, but I will say I thought Patti was excellent, very sincere and we really enjoyed her time out and about. We saw her in the Ocean View TONS, enjoyed her singing and found her to be one of the better ... Read more

I realise that I've written one LONG review, but I've attempted to address some of the topics that I wanted to know more about prior to taking my first cruise. Hope it's helpful to some folks. :) This was my first cruise ever and it was ... Read more

My wife and I booked this cruise on Constellation as an escape from a very dreary summer. We had an ocean view cabin and considered it to be one of the best cruises we had taken. Embarkation was swift and we felt very welcome. Our cabin ... Read more

Upon arrival to the ship, all went like clockwork until we got to the buffet line. Then, it was like 1000 people hadn't eaten for a month! There was pushing, almost shoving to get to the buffet line. Welcome to your cruise! Having a ... Read more

This was my second cruise with Celebrity. I hated my first cruise with them, which was on the Silhouette in November of 2011, its first cruise out of the USA. I was part of a group, and that was the cruise that they wanted to take, so I ... Read more

This was our 25th cruise, our second on Celebrity. We loved it - we were part of a group of 12 and the overall concensus was that Celebrity definitely does an above average job of providing a value-added cruise experience. Our Concierge ... Read more

This is a fairly new concept for Celebrity, and overall I am very happy with our cruise. We began by spending three nights in London, staying at the Judd Hotel. The location was fantastic, being near subways, rail, and many sites we wanted ... Read more
