We were led to believe this was an upscale cruise line. The food was so watered down it was like prison food. The speciality dining was over-rated. The coffee was the worse and if you wanted a good cup of coffee you would have to go and ... Read more

This was the itinerary we wanted and we had recommendations about Celebrity from family. As this was our first ocean cruise we were - frankly - skeptical. We've traveled the globe extensively but not by sea. Slowly we were won over. The ... Read more
