Just did the Fort Lauderdale to Amsterdam crossing in a Concierge cabin as a solo cruiser. The cabin was just what I wanted deck 10 right on the stern so aft facing, perfect for lunch on a sunny day, although having a concierge didn't seem ... Read more

This was our tenth or eleventh cruise and our second time, in less than a year, on Celebrity. And it was a delight. The ship is terrific. She is beautiful to look at and to wander through, gorgeously designed and wonderfully pleasant to be ... Read more

This was our third Transatlantic cruise on Celebrity. It was different this time. We had a Concierge class cabin, and the only difference between our cabin and my sister's (who had a regular balcony room) was we could get Canape's each ... Read more

After swearing off US - Europe transatlantics (definitely prefer Europe - US), we booked this passage due to the unique ports - with the opportunity to spend some additional time in Amsterdam after the cruise. We had been on the ... Read more

We like the Transatlantic cruises with the multiple sea days. The ship is lovely and there always seemed to be places you could go and read quietly. The cabin was a good size with ample storage space. Our cabin attendant was very nice and ... Read more

We have always been Celebrity fans and always book Aqua class for Blu restaurant. What a disappointment! Blu has cut service drastically. There simply are not enough servers for the clientelle. I believe there were only 2 sommeliers for ... Read more

This was our third Transatlantic cruise, and about our fifth cruise on Celebrity, which we did and do still enjoy. I'm not going to address standard things here .. just things that stood out to us. This ship has a strange architecture ... Read more

We took the repositioning cruise from Fort Lauderdale to Amsterdam because on our honeymoon ( over fifty years ago) we visited Amsterdam, Paris, and Brussels. All three of those countries were visited on this cruise with Lisbon added on ... Read more

We chose this cruise for the itinerary (Miami to early off in Villefranche), the price, and one past experience with Celebrity which was mostly positive. The embarkation was smooth and efficient. Welcome buffet was good, and our ... Read more

We booked this transatlantic cruise from Miami because we needed the rest before getting to Europe. Easy check in on the arrival in Miami Port. We sure had a relaxing time, we enjoyed the main dining room every night (we did not feel the ... Read more

The ports on this cruise were attractive even though we had already been to Tenerife and Malaga. We have friends in Malaga so this was a good opportunity to catch up with them. We boarded after 2 pm so there was no wait at all to ... Read more

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

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 is rated as a 5-star ship - it barely approaches a 3-star, no wonder it needs a refurbishment! I would suggest a total makeover or sending it to the scrape yard. Some of the negatives: Too few restaurant staff and mainly very ... Read more

The ports visited. The crew were very friendly. The food at times was fine. Embarkation in Abu Dhabi was a shambles. Some show were excellent others very amateurish. Not sure I use Celebrity again. Money making in your face ... Read more

Loud type of music spoiled the atmosphere for us. It seemed just noise. Most of the crew was pleasant but some were just there. Specialty restaurant service was better than the food. The $18 above the regular added price for dry aged ... Read more
