The port was awful - 3 hour wait to check in after waiting 1 hour to get a ride from the parking lot to the port. No water, any place to sit, or explanation given for the long lines. Got a letter on our bunk in the stateroom two days ... Read more

Our first Celebrity cruise, and our favorite cruise ever, by a pretty big margin. Aside from a small hick-up with a slow embarkation, a great experience start to finish. The tone was set before we even managed to find our way into ... Read more
