We were all very pleased
Destination: Southern Caribbean
Embarkation: Fort Lauderdale (Port Everglades)
The staff in the Oceanview couldn't have been more accomodating in assisting us with food selection and then getting us a table. Be flexible with a situation like this and you'll enjoy it much more.
Having been on many Celebrity cruises we found this ship to be a fine example of cruising at it's best.
Having booked this cruise over a year in advance I was able to obtain the exact staterooms requested and since we had utilized that same stateroom on other voyages on other ships we knew what to expect. Things change and one should be able to adapt. We were very fortunate not to have to sit near or listen to the complainers who invariable cruise only to make it miserable for others.
We ate in almost every venue and were very happy with our selections and service. Most of our meals were in Blu as this is so much less crowded and the service has always been superior. The times we ventured to the specialty restaurants such as Tuscan and Murano were as always special treats. At times service can be overwhelming but they seem to have toned it down somewhat which is more pleasing to us. We were also fortunate to have secured discounts for these speciality restaurants. Those that complain about all the added fees can usually reduce these if they have a little "know how." Since we don't imbibe and utilize the free services from our stateroom we are therefore able to economize and that allows us to add extra money to those that deserve it at the end of the voyage.
Having been cruising since 1960 when I first sailed the now extinct Georgian Bay Line which cruised the great lakes I have seen many interesting parts of the world and had many memorable cruises. Some of which will remain in the forefront of the memory bank and some that will definitely remain in the background hoping to never be repeated.
I treated three others to this wonderful cruise and have heard nothing but raves about this wonderful ship and the line. Less
Cabin review: AQ1522
Stateroom 1522 and 1524 are great handicapped cabins. The beds are very inducing to a great nights sleep. I can't say as much about the pillows. The included amenities in the room are great. The double door closet is enough for short cruises but if you are extending your cruise you might need more room The drawer space is quite adequate. The balcony while not enormous has two sling back chairs along with good footrests and a nice teakwood table. The egress to the balcony is fine for a wheelchair. I highly recommend the four hadicapped Aqua Class staterooms.
