Great itinerary -Celebrity could do better
Destination: Europe - Eastern Mediterranean
The service and food in the MDR were good to very good. We had select dining, but still got to know several of the waitstaff over the course of the cruise. We had one dinner at Tuscan Grill which was great.
Kids Club was ok-kids enjoyed it.
The shows were mediocre, but we still enjoyed them.
The wine service and bar service were More outstanding.
We had issues in both Athens and Istanbul (both ports we were doing on our own) getting situated when leaving the cruise terminal. We have previously done a Disney cruise, and at every port there were several cruise staff just helping people get pointed in the right direction coming off the boat. There was no help from Celebrity.
I will review ports separately, but I will say we encountered a very rude bus driver on one excursion, and when trying to give feedback to Celebrity, we received a less than satisfactory response.
Overall, the cruise was wonderful because the ports were wonderful and the ship is beautiful. I do think, however, that there were enough significant service gaps to make me hesitate to cruise Celebrity again. Less
