Great cruise

Sail Date: September 2012
Destination: Panama Canal & Central America
Embarkation: San Diego
This cruise was a good cruise. My wife and I have been sailing with Celebrity since 1990 and we had our honeymoon on Chandris back in the 70's.

Embarkation in San Diego was quick and easy. Once on board we proceeded to the Bistro on 5 for lunch. This way we avoided the rush at the Oceanview Cafe.
After we unpacked we walked around the ship. Having sailed on the Infinity and the Constellation we knew were everything is.

The entertainment was typical cruise ship entertainment. The Celebrity singers and dancers were good but not special. The guest entertainers were hit or miss depending on taste. The concert pianist was very good. The comedian we found not so good even though the rest of the cruise thought he was funny. They had an English couple doing what they thought were singing and comedy but we thought they were awful.

Rich Gleeson the cruise director was just great. He was every where and did not hesitate to talk to the guests when walking More through the ship. His staff were very good. The trivia games, the Liars game along with the Newlywed game were done with fun in mind for everyone.

The party band were also very good. The had a string trio which played classical music which is not my taste but they were decent. The had a quartet in the lounge which we thought were awful.

The food was good. At times the service good have been better. We had select dinning so we had a different waiter eery night. One time they forgot to offer us coffee. We did have a problem with our room steward. He forgot to bring ice in the room and did not clean the room until late in the afternoon.

The ports were good. We got cought in a downpour in Mexico. We went to the Indian village in Panama. Well worth doing. The other ports we just hired a cab.

Disembarkation is always a problem but it seemed to go faster in Miami than in Fort Lauderdale. All in all it was a great cruise and we can't wait until the next one Less
