I am amazed to see some of the negative reviews written regarding this cruise! I can hardly comprehend we were on the same ship at the same time. I therefore had to write a review even though I don’t usually do so. We had the most incredible cruise. We have been cruising over 20 years with a variety of different cruise lines and Celebrity are by far our favourite. We ate at Blu. The staff were ...
We chose this cruise because having travelled extensively both by land and sea through Asia we hadn’t touched on Indonesia other than Borneo and the itinerary appealed to us.
Embarkation was quick and efficient and we were able to access our stateroom immediately. The ship was lovely and very easy to negotiate our way around it. Public areas had lots of seating and were all aesthetically ...
This cruise was cancelled twice due to covid, but we finally got to do it in January.
We embarked in Bali, and was very impressed with the organisation and friendliness of the staff.
The cabin, balcony, and beds were comfortable, and adequate.
The trips were quite expensive, and usually ended in a shopping experience! But that isn’t unusual.
A couple of days into the cruise, we were ...

Because of Covid this cruise was cancelled 3 years for us, but the Celebrity Lift and Shift deal gave us the opportunity to sail this cruise with same benefits as booked in 2000.
Ship itself is nice, sails quiet and stable. Cabin is a bit outdated but still very comfortable. Bed/matress however was hard compared withn our last cruise with the Solstice and Eclipse. To be replaced? Cabin steward ...
My husband and I took this cruise with another couple. We have Diamond status on RCL but this itinerary was exactly what we were looking for and the flight deals were great, so we decided to try NCL. The ship was great, the food was good, and the embarkation and debarkation process was smooth and seamless. We will definitely cruise with NCL again.
We added 3 days to the beginning and the end of ...
Went on cruise with family on 25/01/2024 to 28/01/2024
First impression was already bad as we were suppose to board on 6pm. However last minute our cruise agent informed us that it will be delayed till 9pm+
It was crowded at the cruise terminal and finally after we boarded it was around 12am+ on the ship. The dumb thing was that they decided to conduct emergency drill practice at 1am+. Did ...
This was the first time our family have ever gone for a cruise. Before this, we had googled and saw some reviews but the nightmare started at the port itself.
Hwajing the organiser in working partnership with Costa - didnt do a good planning. With thousands of guests checking in plus an islamic group tour as well, it was chaos and there was certainly an attitude to care for the elderly and ...

From start to finish, the journey was marred by significant shortcomings and lapses in service, painting a grim picture of our cruise experience.
The Depths of Disappointment:
1. Chaos ...
