We have previously done this repo cruise but wanted to do it again. We flew on a direct flight from Newark to San Juan the day of sailing. We arrived in San Juan just before noon and headed directly to the ship. My wife has mobility issues ... Read more

We decided to give Celebrity a try after hearing rave reviews from family and friends. We set sail on April 22, 2017 out of San Juan Puerto Rico. It was one of the easiest ports to sail out of and we would definitely sail out of this port ... Read more

All the buzz was about Captain Kate and it turned out to be mostly true. Our first Female American Captain (and one of the few American Captains at that) set a positive and fun tone for the ship. The Captain attended many public events, ... Read more

This was our first trip on Celebrity but, after doing a Transatlantic last fall, we have learned that we like sea days. This was a trip that provided a new port for us (Bermuda) as well as three sea days and all occurring over only one ... Read more

My sister choose this cruise because she and her husband had been on the Celebrity Summit 5 years ago and said it was amazing. We ate in the dinning room three times and the food was so so. The food in the Ocean Cafe was great, all ... Read more

I have found Celebrity to be above all the other cruise lines I have taken in food quality, service, and overall pleasant experience with minimal children running wild. Although it is an older ship, the smaller size allows passengers to ... Read more

This was our first-ever cruise. We were very happy - and relaxed - the whole time. We did not do any ship-sponsored excursions, preferring instead to go ashore. I didn't like the ports right by the ships, where it is obvious they are ... Read more

This was a 7 night milestone birthday cruise we planned in July 2016 for April 2017. We had already been to 2 of the 5 islands, but were anxious to see the other 3 islands. The whole thing kind of slowly fell apart beginning in March ... Read more

Celebrity was our first choice - we had never been to the Southern Caribbean. We had been to St Maarten, St Thomas, but the others were new to us. This is why we chose this ship. I do not like it as much as The Siloutte or Reflection - ... Read more

We are very happy with the attention we received in the dining room, buffet, our room steward and the concierge service they offer to some guests. The pool service has been better on previous cruises with Celebrity. My guess is that they ... Read more

Do not book if they want to put you in concierge room 8114! This cabin is adjoined to the sewage line. Our bathroom smelled of raw sewage constantly. We also had no water pressure in the shower. I resorted to using the spa showers since ... Read more

Ship, once again, had propulsion issues. They canceled day one, leaving me to scramble for a hotel in San Juan. They revised the itinerary so we just missed a day at sea. Cruise itself was great. Qsine was outstanding. Tuscan grill is ... Read more

We'd heard mixed reviews on this ship and were pleasantly surprised on how much we liked it. It was a good size, not too big or too small. The staff on the ship provided a high level of service and was extremely friendly. There were a lot ... Read more

We have sailed Carnival and Norwegian before. I will say the food on those ships was better. Maybe it was because we had a shorter cruise, we only had 4 nights, but no meals really wowed me. Especially the desserts! I was really ... Read more

This was a charter with Star Vista 70's Rock and Romance Cruise. It was our first cruise ever and we truly enjoyed it. Since Star Vista takes care of the entertainment and activities I won't comment except to say their staff was wonderful ... Read more

The music on this cruise was FABULOUS! Our onboard experience was the BEST! We had our Vows renewed and the ceremony was officiated by Barry Williams (Greg Brady from the Brady Bunch). The food was good but not spectacular. We had ... Read more
