My husband and i have travelled to 46 different countries and have taken 5 previous cruises running the gamut from inexpensive family fare, to lively Carnival, to Mediterranean quality and class sails, to pure luxury French river barging. We know to expect what we pay for and we were thus very disappointed in this spur -of -the -moment -get -away -from -Winter's -woes cruise.
The ports were wonderful, but the food was mediocre at best. A big deal was made about the final formal night's fare but truthfully, that should have been the norm. On former cruises with less prestige, the meals were uniformly of higher quality both in the MDR and Buffet offerings.
Evening entertainment was also quite lacking. A tacky singer and a bland "comic" were not Entertainment and the Big Floor shows (with the exception of a talented dance/aerial duo) were loud and repetitive.
We found ourselves enjoying CNN and our Veranda much more.
Celebrity simply did not deliver it's namesake feeling for us.
