This cruise was selected as we had done the identical cruise, same time, same ship, last year (2015). On the basis of that particular cruise we were (and are) in a position to make an unbiased comparison to both cruises. Itinerary was the ... Read more

Our first time with Celebrity - in no hurry to go back. With the exception of the wonderful very hard working cabin staff, our overall experience on this ship was generally disappointing - average service, disinterested staff, average ... Read more

We chose this ship because we sailed on it the year earlier from Perth to Sydney and loved the ship. This time we were taking friends, one of whom is suffering a terminal illness. They had never cruised before and were unsure about it. It ... Read more

We had cruised around Australia and New Zealand a few years ago and while we wanted to go back, we dreaded all the flying. Our answer was to fly over and cruise back. After looking at all the options we decided to do 3 back to back ... Read more
