After all the reviews on the Millenium my partner and I were looking forward to our first cruise with Celebrity.
Our first view of the ship was disappointing looked liked it needed another refit, cabin had an obstructed view, which we were not informed of when booking.
Main restaurant dark and unimpressive, food not appetising and repetitive.
buffet mediocre serving staff rude and unhelpful,and unable to understand the most basic spoken English, if you wanted better you had to pay for specialist restaurant, everything was pay,pay pay, coffee and tea could have been made in the engine room. Loud music being piped around the ship from early morning very difficult to get away from it. Entertainment in the theatre below standard brass section of orchestra to loud, trumpet player drowning out every act,
Could not walk on deck 11 in the evening awash with water, crew stated it was done early so not to disturb cabins below so after dinner walk cancelled.
Disembarkation as usual chaotic transfer to hotel disorganised.
The itinerary was quite interesting and the weather good the cruise through the Panama Canal was not to be missed, but will not sail on ,this ship again and will seriously consider whether to use Celebrity as in our opinion no way was the cruise worth a five star rating.
