We chose this cruise purely because of the itinerary. It had some of the destinations that we had never visited before. The Croatian destinations were brilliant and well worth a return. However the Celebration failed to live up to the ... Read more

The fact it was going to Morocco was of interest and it fitted in with the time we had . The itinery itself left a lot to be desired. The onboard catering was of very poor quality. On the buffet asked for ice cream to be told they have ... Read more
