Since this was our first cruise, my husband and I loved the idea of sailing out of Bayonne, since we live in new jersey.the itinerary also seemed perfect, plenty of time at sea with three full days.
We have been looking forward to our cruise which we booked last winter, the 7 night to Bermuda was the perfect choice ,we loved sailing out of cape liberty as we live in new jersey and the itinerary was perfect with four days at sea and three days in Bermuda.
Embarkation and disembarkation was truly a breeze, they seem to have it all figured out.
Could not have been happier with our choice to go with Celebrity, ship was lovely, service excellent,best we ever experienced, our cabin was small, but very well designed and comfortable, we went with veranda and really enjoyed sitting put and taking in the view.
Food was overall excellent, a bit disappointed with the mdr, but the two nights we dined at the Norman die, the specialty restaurant, the food was delicious . We also loved the food at the aqua Spa cafe for breakfast and lunch. One of my favorite spots was the European cafe', delicious pastries, tea sandwiches with lovely live musical entertainment many times during the day.
The evening entertainment was quite enjoyable, there was a comedian, wonderful violinist along with the celebrity cast doing your basic broadway review (at times it seemed a bit amateurish).
Everyone we met on the ship seemed as happy as we were and agreed the crew was one of the best...
Bermuda was lovely, we had not been there in over 25 years and enjoyed our three days there.
We did our own thing and shared a taxi and got a wonderful tour of the island, next day took the ferry to St. George, also spent some time at tobacco bay beach.
Through cruise critic we got invitations for a bridge tour and galley tour of the kitchen. Both were excellent, thank you cruise critic!
We enjoyed our trip so much we are actually considering doing the same cruise next year..
This ship is going into dry dock and will be getting a " face lift", next year, would be great to sail on her next year, but hope the" old girl" doesn't change too much because she's a gem.
