Great Cruise to South and Central America
Destination: Western Caribbean
Embarkation: Fort Lauderdale (Port Everglades)
As for shore excursions, we booked three with the cruise line. We were very disappointed with one of the three but were given a discount from Celebrity. We learned from our new dining friends that going ashore and picking/choosing from the numerous excursions offered would have saved us a lot of money. We will take their advice on our next cruise.
We had an inside cabin which was very roomy. We usually opt for a balcony but could not upgrade as the cruise was fully booked. There were plenty of activities and the shows were good. We especially liked the cirque de soleil-like show. The performers were flawless. It felt as if we were in Las Vegas...they were that good. The cruise director was great; very talented. He and other crew members put on a masquerade-type show one evening which was great. The casino paid out very well on the slots. One problem we encountered was the ubiquitous "lounge chair saving." We've seen this on every other cruise and it ruins the pool experience for others. All in all, a great cruise on a great ship. We will sail with Celebrity again next January. Less
