Ship Facts: Bahamas Celebration Review (by Cruise Critic!) | Bahamas Celebration Deck Plans
Absolutely Awful
Celebration Cruises has downsized everything. When I first took the cruise 4 years ago, it was pleasant and our room while small, was accomodating. The buffet was satisfying and easily assessible. Celebration now has downsized, first the boat, it is now much older and smaller. The requested two beds (for seniors) was pullout bunkbeds, when opened no room to move in or out. The bathroom was a small corner, only assessible when no one else was in the room, as the door was so close to the outer door and bunkbeds, one had to squeeze in to the small opening.

The buffet, per se, was gone and replaced with an early limited time availability in one of the restaurants. In order to get in line to get a good selection, one had to be in line before 6 a.m. (a time we all want to get up on a vacation...not) We never made it. One had to search for food, and everything was time limited with a limited selection. A short Italian selection was the most offered (the cheapest and skimmiest imaginable) and then it was open and closed on a time schedule which became unintelligible. The last morning, all the leftovers (stale rolls, cold and limp french toast and pancakes, overcooked eggs, and suspicious bacon and potatoes were served in a buffet style on the topdeck, with not many tables or seating unless you were there early enough to grab one of the few bar seats or pool seats (and eat off your lap), all in the blazing hot sun...

Then injury to insult, the disembarking...OMG, we were ordered out of our rooms to stand in line (in one spot) for over an hour and a half, while they waited for personnel to disembark us, which took another hour once it started.

I had taken this trip before they gave us the generic version of a cruise, and found it a good excursion for my guests...well, no more. It was a most unpleasant trip. Embarrassing, uncomfortable and frustrating. The good reviews had to come from those that drank a lot, or were with so many people they were distracted...or had never been on a cruise before.
