Let me say first this was our very first cruise -- of any kind. We were invited by good friends to join them, as experienced cruisers. We were excited but also a bit anxious about a transatlantic cruise as a our first taste of shipboard life. Well, the 13-day, 5-port cruise was among the best vacation experiences we've ever had.
Every single step of the cruise process was handled efficiently and professionally by the Celebrity personnel. The cabin was clean and well layed out; the bed was very comfortable, and the bathroom shower was great. The food was tremendous, but we upgraded to Aqua Class so we had our own 'private' dining room as well as other special amenities. If we had not upgraded, our dining experience would have not have been nearly as memorable. We tried the main dining room once, for lunch, and were very disappointed by the service and the large crowd. Aqua Class is the only was to go.
Entertainment was great. We went to the 10pm show every night and were never disappointed with the 45 minute show. There were plenty of other activities throughout the day if you were interested.
We also went on several Celebrity-sponsored port tours. Very well orchestrated.
We're ready for another Celebrity Cruise!
