Celebrit Summit - Feb 23
Destination: Southern Caribbean
Embarkation: San Juan
As for the upcharge restaurants, none of them could make More the main dining room, The Cosmopolitan pale in quality. And while they do give the feeling of exclusivity, keep in mind that if you go with the Select Dining package you can always have the benefit of reserved, private tables in the main dining room, but still have to pay the upcharge in the other restaurants. That being said, since we saw no sacrifice in quality in the main dining room, we actually never went back to any of the upcharge restaurants a second time. The ship's buffet, Oceanview Cafe did leave us wanting for more choice and better quality. Anyone who has been to Vegas will understand when I say this wouldn't compete with even the least impressive of the big casino buffets.
With a 1-to-2 ratio of crewmember to passenger, you basically have 2,100 passengers who do not have to lift a finger and there was never a shortage of clean table or available lounge chair. Empty drink glasses and dirty dishes and used towels were hardly ever visible.
We took cabin 9160 which is Concierge Class, facing aft. While the cabin itself was standard for Concierge Class, the balcony was a wow for two reasons: spectacular views, especially when leaving port, but also while at sea as the wake left by ship is beautiful to look at and calming to listen to; and the balcony itself was much, much bigger than the balconies on the side of the ship. At about 9' x 12', it had a table and 2 chairs (but which could easily seat 4), 2 additional arm chairs and 2 chaise lounges and ottomans, and still it wasn't cramped. Another recent review of this very cabin mentioned the drawback of hearing the noise from the bar deck above, but it actually worked to our advantage as each evening at sail-away, we enjoyed the calypso music of the sail-away party directly above, from the privacy of our balcony.
In a nutshell, this was our first cruise, and we feel we don't need to try another line to know that Celebrity is a really great line and this was a really great ship. Less
Cabin review: CC9160
Good closet and drawer space, amazing aft-facing location with extra-large private balcony. Shower is showing signs of the age of the ship, with some rust-through near the base of the tile.
Fabulous Show Troupe, ETC.
