We chose this cruise because it linked to another cruise that would be ending and went to a destination we wanted to see. This was advertised to us as a 5 1/2 star ship. It is a 4 1/2 star ship with 3 1/2 star food ...

Will never sail Celebrity (or Royal Caribbean again)

The cost of sailing with Celebrity could not lead to expectations of Four Seasons quality accommodation, service, and food. I went with an open mind but at the end the highlight was finally getting off this tacky ...

5 Star Price, 1 Star Cruise

We like RCL but after arranging to cruise to Oz we were unable to find an RCL ship but thought Celebrity would be a great choice as it is supposed to be upscale from RCL. Now we never expect to travel without ...

Celebrity has lost its edge! Bottom of the class.

We are elite plus and have cruised with Celebrity on numerous times. Based on our last experience , they seem more like a budget line at a premium price. They have definitely lost their vibe and more of a has been. ...

Very crowded ship-total cattle call!

If you like an overcrowded ship (2850 max capacity with over 3000 passengers on board), hospital quality food, average entertainment and unexciting on board activities on an older ship, this is your cruise. The new ...

OVER RATED CRUISE LINE

We were led to believe this was an upscale cruise line. The food was so watered down it was like prison food. The speciality dining was over-rated. The coffee was the worse and if you wanted a good cup of coffee ...

As Sydney Departure port was under renovation caused awful congestion, we thought that seeing we had a Concierge Class Cabin would get priority boarding - wrong, frequent Celebrity Cruises got the go ahead first. ...
