Cruising with Friends on a new ship - How good is that?
We arrived on a rainy morning and were one of the early people standing in line in the rain waiting to be admitted to the terminal at the Port of Miami. Check in was slow but we met our friends on the way in and had lunch plans so the time passed quickly. The ship is beautiful. Our bathroom was very classy and the beds were excellent. The storage space was very limited and the the cabin itself was rather small.
The dining room was very pretty. The food was very good. The service throughout the ship was excellent. We enjoyed the amenities on the ship. I liked the pool area and there always seemed to be enough seating. The entertainment was okay- loud even in the main theater. As far as entertainment - there is something to appeal to everyone even late into the night. The Apple Lab was very cool and the library was beautiful.
The ports were fine and the weather was good. We did their drink package which IMO encourages drinking - I would not do that again. I found it difficult to figure out where everything was and consequently missed some events. I assume those who cruise Celebrity would not have a problem but this is only my second cruise.
The ship in the common areas is gorgeous and well maintained. This is a lovely ship and we had a nice time.
