I am finally getting to write my review of our cruise. We traveled with the large group of 40 along with our travel agent, which was very nice because all our tours were preplanned and prepaid. Below you will find the brief description by category, which might or might not help future cruisers because everyone's feedback is different and can vary significantly. Here is our's:
Destination / ports of call: we sailed from Hong Kong to Shanghai. Loved every port, enjoyed the tours, lot's of walking. Amazing sights.
Cruise Ship: this is our second time on Celebrity and we were not very impressed. Everyone were saying that it is better than Princess but we didn't think so.
Embarkation in Hong Kong: very disorganized, took a long time.
Cabin: we were in Aqua Class and it was great. The cabin was nice, our room steward was very attentive, can't be better.
Food: average to say the least. Lunch buffet was terrible, dinner was so-so even in Blue, menu not interesting. Service was poor both in the dining room and in the Blue, extremely slow, although, personnel was friendly.
Spa area: very good, enjoyed it a lot.
Overall the ship did not look renovated. The main atrium was not very impressive. They could do much better on the refurbishing.
