It was our first trip to the USA & Caribbean and we came straight from the Celebrity Equinox to the Sky. We booked these not knowing anything about these trips. Just wanted to see as much as possible. After booking I saw the reviews on here and was very worried about our 'booze cruise'.
Check-in was a breeze. The ship was very different from our previous ship. The first thing I noticed was the tomato ketchup on the tables in the buffet.
But we went into this knowing that it would be different and we were determined to enjoy ourselves & we did.
The food in the buffet was more limited but we could always find something to eat and it was hot and well presented.
We enjoyed the MDR and the service. It was really good.
Overall we really enjoyed this cruise. It was very different to our previous one but just as enjoyable. The cabin steward was great (called us by our christian names whereas on celebrity we were 'sir' or 'madam'}, although the food wasn't as good, we could always find something that we enjoyed.
It was more informal, the fellow passengers more friendly, more fun and was so enjoyable.
You do get what you pay for, but if you keep an open mind it is a fun and economical cruise.
