Boarding the ship was quick and easy. Champagne served was a welcomed treat. Our inside cabin was well laid out and very comfortable. Plenty of space for our clothes, luggage under the bed,fresh pitcher of ice water twice a day, refrigerator, great TV on wall. I asked cabin steward for feather pillows and he provided them quickly. Shower was large and bathroom was just the right size.
Food in the dining room and buffet were excellent. Specialty restaurants were superb. Service was outstanding throughout the ship. I read the reviews that rated the food lower than what we expect from Celebrity and it is those reviews that in my opinion got the attention of the management. Our experience shows that they have addressed all the problems and complaints that passengers had. If our experience on this cruise is now the norm it will be hard to be satisfied on another ship. This was our 25th cruise.
The ship was jaw dropping beautiful and spotless. The entertainment on board was top notch and a bit above what you find on other ships. The theatre was comfortable, the shows were riveting and the music around the ship was great. Great comedy too. The ship never felt crowded. The life boat drill was the most painless of all previous cruises.
The activities were good as usual but the big surprise was the Fun Factory childrens program. Although most passengers seemed to be over 50, there were about 70 kids on the ship. My grandchildren, 2 girls 4 and 7 years old, never wanted to leave the fun factory.
