What a way to return from Europe
Embarkation: Rome (Civitavecchia)
After an exhausting two-week tour of Italy, we decided to come home via a cruise. Smart decision. It was our first cruise on Celebrity, and was lovely. Cabins are big and well-designed, with a great comfortable bed (no jostling from your partner). Seating area with a couch, small table, and desk. Very nice bathroom with plenty of storage. We ate in the main dining room with select (anytime) seating. Food and service were very good, but we usually ate late after the show, and the seating staff were somewhat reluctant to open up new sharing tables. We never felt the need to go to the specialty (fee-based) venues. The buffet was quite good, just need some work on busing the outside tables - very slow, and messy. The lectures were mixed, some quite good, some not so much. Entertainment was mostly very good, but the big production numbers weren't particularly interesting (and I usually like that stuff). Fellow passengers were a little too convinced that Celebrity is the best cruise line More
We opted for a port side balcony, thinking crossing the Atlantic would be cool, and the sun would be necessary. We had lovely weather, from the upper 70s to the mid 80s during the day, so if we did it again, I'd opt for a starboard cabin and the shade. And we had a bunch of 25 hour days, making the trip even more relaxing. Fort Lauderdale was a bit of a mess for disembarkation. Very slow, disorganized at the port, and the airport was even worse. Too small to handle the number of cruise passengers leaving on a Sunday. I'd try the Miami airport next time. Less

Beautiful city. We took the port bus to the Columbus statue, and went around town on a hop on/off bus. Easy and lovely.
