Not that good

Sail Date: June 2011
Destination: Baltic Sea
Embarkation: Southampton

There is very little point in me outlining all the good points of the ship as it will only be a repeat of other reviews. Overall it is quite good as are the staff. However there are a few little matters that need attention.

We sailed in Aqua Class and the Blu restaurant was good and the food excellent but....We were not able to use it for breakfast on one of our shore trip days organised by Celebrity as it was not open, yet it was the day before. I asked for an explanation from Guest Relations on the day and am still waiting. So we couldn't use a facility that we had paid for.

At breakfast customers were sometimes waiting for a table to be prepared with staff rushing around flapping table clothes around you although a good half or the room was set up for the evening meal with wine glasses and cutlery gathering dust for 24 hours. Seems that the place is run for the benefit of the staff and not the customer.

We did a couple of trips including St Petersburg 2 More day which is quite strenuous but worth it. The Palaces get crowded. On our Copenhagen trip we were ripped off as the guide and coach driver were constantly consulting a map to alter the route away from the town as it was busy and difficult to park so we did a trip to the airport. How thrilling !!!.

The Aqua Spa Cafe is good and an ideal venue for lunch. Not many tables so don't be much later than 12 noon.

All entertainment was very good. However if you have not seen the comedian Adrian Walsh then you must do so but if you have seen him then don't bother as his act was the same 3 years ago.

Drinks on board were not cheap. Less
