Embarkation: My partner, my father and myself were traveling with a group about 75. Leaving out of Cape Liberty was good for us no plane and could take the golf clubs at no extra cost. It did take about an hour to get on the ship but it moved steady.
Accommodations: We were very impressed with our cabin the bathroom was roomy and the room was very comfortable. Our only complaint to the room was that we requested the bed be together and it wasn't.
Stateroom attendant: We were not happy with our attendant he didn't like that we asked for the bed to be together he questioned why. After that he just avoided us all the time. After filling out a complaint form he started to be nicer but still very awkward.
Dining: Buffet offered a wide variety of foods and was good. Casual dining area: we ate one night and it was wonderful would have paid more than $2 a person. Main dining was OK not really as good and entertaining like we are used to. Normandie: was not what we thought a little different needed some music. Not worth the $35 a person would rather have eaten at casual dining seating more.
Sea days: not as bad as some of the other cruises the ship offered a lot of things to do Wii for adults, tours, dancing and other things. Didn't really have to fight for a chair on the deck.
Crowd on ship: We really didn't expect to have so many older people on the ship, and everything ended so early in the night. It felt like we were at a senior citizen retreat.
Entertainment: the shows were great and the band on the deck was very good I listened to them many of nights.
The majority of the crew were very nice and we did enjoy ourselves we will give Celebrity another go.
We would have liked more things after 1:00am to do for the under 40 group.
