We chose this cruise as we were generously given a big credit from our families to go on a cruise. We found a deal through our travel agent that was too good to pass up. Balcony cabin, $300 onboard credit from Celebrity, $125 onboard ... Read more

We chose this cruise to go to Mardi Gras. It worked out great as the dock is close to town and we could walk to the parade sites and pretty much anywhere in the French Quarter. The other ports were OK but we have been to them many times ... Read more

The glaring issues were the poor, never to be seen cruise director and THE WORST DJ at sea. A cruise director should be seen about the ship all day and night long. I have no idea where the cruise director John could possibly be at any ... Read more

This cruise included Mardi Gras in New Orleans. Music was basically Jazz.. The passengers were born in the 50's for the most part. Entertainment was awful. High school musical and amateurish. Comedians were very good. Pool deck music was ... Read more

We chose this cruise because Celebrity has a good reputation. I would say that it is mainly deserved. The ship itself was very smart and the buffet is the best I have experienced in terms of choice and spacious layout. Food was ... Read more
