Who is the celebrity on this cruse?

Sail Date: July 2011
Destination: Europe - Western Mediterranean
Embarkation: Southampton

I will try a bullit point our thoughts to keep it brief, hope it helps!

- children used main pools and jacuzi's a lot which retricted the aduld use.

- atmosphere was consistenetly adult with sophistcated bars and entertainment in the evenings.

- childerens entertainment was more educational than fun based according to other passengers feedback.

- food in the main didning was exceptional with plenty of vegetarian choice, we did not feel any need to use speciality dining.

- rear facing balconies were good on any deck level, some side balconies had a view of thelifeboats.

- we booked concierge class but did not experience any benifits, preferential dininig?, appertiefs?, it did give us an extended room service menu that we did not use though.

- ship felt overcrowded - perhaps celebrity jammed us in to achieve maximum profit?

- sunbeds were inn short supply and the areas around them were very crowded.

- More drinks were very, very expensive £6.60 for a bottle of magners and OVER £5 for a can of guinness this includes their 15% charge - oh and when you are in spanish waters they add another 8% local tax.

- difficult to get a seat in the coffee lounge due to number of passengers.

- bars only staffed by a couple of people so service was quite slow.

- sky bar was a great place as was the observation lounge, it wa a shame though that the observation lounge was a smoking venue at the front as the smell permiatted throughout the room.

- we did not use the lawn area.

I know this looks like a bit of a moan but these little touches are what matter, all in all it was a very clean, fresh ship, it is quite sophisticated and i would put its main target passengers as those looking for a classy cruise. Less
