Fun Yet Disappointing

Sail Date: October 2012
Destination: Hawaii
Embarkation: San Diego

The overall cruise went well. Had a good time on the ship. The food was ok, there could have been more Mexican, we had it once on the lunch buffet. We mainly played trivia, which was fun. There were many cool, cloudy days, so sitting by the pool wasn't an option on those days. The pool was closed during rough seas once. The ship was ok for an older, smaller ship but definitely time for a dry dock and updates. The captain and crew were ALWAYS visible around the ship at all times of the day which was a first for our cruises. The captain took pride in his ship and guests ensuring their needs were being taken care of and were enjoying their cruise.

We were disappointed in the entertainment. There were only two broadway shows during the 15 day cruise. The only good show was a comedian/magician (Nick). He was very entertaining. We enjoyed his show very much. The average age of the guests on this cruise was a bit older than we had expected, thus the More activities/events/entertainment was geared toward that age group. As a result, the late night activities were not well attended. I suspect most passengers went to bed around 10.

The ports of call were enjoyable because we did what we wanted to do in the time there. One port we were required to tender. Celebrity crew need training on the most efficient way to load/unload the tender boats. The process is very slow and somewhat dangerous depending on the water level and calm/roughness of the ocean. We saw one lady fall out of the tender boat onto the pier. Fortunately she was ok, but it could have been much worse. Less

Cabin review: Celebrity Century Sky Suite Penthouse Deck (10) 1215

Nice balcony, cabin a bit too small, bathroom was very small for a suite. No extra noise, was very quiet.

Helicopter Tour

(5)
Flew over active volcano vents and saw lava flows. Our pilot, Roger, was an excellent tour guide.

Pearl Harbor

(4)
It was nice to visit Pearl Harbor and tour the USS Missouri and see the USS Arizona memorial.

Took a helicopter ride over northwest Maui and Molokai. Would recommend Blue Hawaiian Helicopters. We saw the largest waterfalls of the Hawaiian islands on Molokai.

Enjoyed the day on the water as we travelled to Lanai. Got to see dolphins up close and personal. Have had better snorkeling in the Caribbean.
