This was our first Celebrity cruise for a few years, in recent times we have been Azamara regulars, it was the itinerary & port of embarkation that attracted us.
The booking was made quite late and was for a guaranteed concierge cabin.
This is the first time we have booked guaranteed and it worked out OK but I am not sure that we would have chosen this cabin location ourselves.
We live in Yorkshire England & only had a one hour flight to Amsterdam which was a great way to join a cruise.
Cruise line transfer was fine but embarkation was not very well organised at first, we are Elite members & being booked in concierge expected to be in a fast track line.
I could not find a line & signs were not clear, only after waiting for some time & pointing out to a member of staff that we were Elite were we told to go straight through to check in.
That was the only real problem & overall we had a lovely time & the staff from the Captain down were fantastic.
The Captains club benefits are now excellent & we will certainly book again with Celebrity.
The weather was great most of the time, very hot the first week but a little cloudy later on, the only rain was in Amsterdam on the last day.
