This is our second cruise with Celebrity. and certainly not the last. We got an "upgrade" , which we didn't want (a better category, but a worse location, so there were some problems on our first day, until we ...

Embarkation at Southampton was quick & efficient, cabin was fine though a little minimalist in its decor.Our cabin steward, Anand, was excellent and we thanked him very much for his work and his friendliness. ...
