Somewhat disappointed

Sail Date: October 2013
Destination: Mediterranean
Embarkation: Barcelona

Having sailed several times with Celebrity and over 50 cruises in total, we thought we knew what to expect.

We had booked an outside guarantee cabin, and I was somewhat concerned when we were allocated an adapted cabin to accommodate wheelchair users. I even contacted RCCL to ask could we be given an "ordinary" cabin, to no avail.

Imagine our surprise when we opened the door (cabin No., 3021), it was HUGE, with all the features expected from an outside cabin, with the addition of two armchairs and a table in the cabin itself, and a very large walk in bathroom with no step (obviously to accommodate wheelchair use) and an almost wet room like shower area. We were thrilled. The only difference we noted really was grip rails in the bathroom, which, had the seas been rough, we would have appreciated more.

We booked the package for the three specialist restaurants at a cost of $85 pp, which was very reasonable. However the cost of a small glass of Sheraz in More Murano's was $15!!!.

Our only real gripe was the cost of drinks in the bars. In the Martini bar, a martini and a small red wine was $20, which we considered excessive.

The shows and the food in the restaurant was up to the usual Celebrity quality.

Would I go again? Yes, but be very aware of the cost of drinks. Less
