Age 70s

My wife and I cruised on Chandris Line out of San Juan in the late "80's and loved the experience even though it was very inexpensive and last minute. Food was the best surprise. All else was very good but not enough to get us hooked on cruising. Our next cruise (3-day)was on an older Carnival ship out of FL to Nassau with our 14 year old daughter and her friend in 1996. Quality was lower and ...

We are a 50-60sh couple who have sailed several times, this was the first time on Celebrity. And it won't be the last time! We can't understand most of the mixed reviews this ship gets. we spent 3 nights prior to cruise at the Hilton Molino Stuckey Hotel. It was very nice, but next time we will choose a place closer in to center of city. Embarkation was smooth & easy, used the luggage tags that ...

Age 70s

Since we are diamond RCCL folks, we were looking forward to at least the same type of customer service on a Celebrity ship, but that was not the case. Hardly a day went by that wrong information was given to us by crew members, which caused us great inconvenience.And we were told many times that no one knew answers to our routine questions.No one made an effort to find answers, either. In Venice, ...

Greedy for the Mediterranean

Age 50s

We cruised the Mediterranean Legacies itinerary on Celebrity's Summit sailing October 17-30, 2009. With it being our first time in Europe, we were greedy for as many ports of call as possible, and we booked the ship's shore excursions at many of the ports. By the end of the second week, we were exhausted, and WHEN we do this sailing again, will be a bit less adventurous in the ports and may stay ...

We cruised again last year on Princess. This year we were new to Celebrity. Our port of embarkation was Barcelona. We flew from our home in Detroit to JFK and from JFK to Barcelona. We arrived two days early and ...

Age 80s

We go on a couple of cruises a year. We've been on the Summit before and previous to this cruise we were on the Constellation. Celebrity is our favorite cruise line. However, this cruise just didn't come up to the standard we had experienced on previous Celebrity cruises. We chalked it up to poor hotel management. Embarkation in Venice: Since part of our luggage stayed behind in Paris and we ...

Many disappointments compared to same ship 2 years ago

Age 70s

Many areas were noticeably downgraded. For example, many of the signage on the buffet items were missing, and on many days, the soup remained a mystery and remained untouched by many that stopped by to look into the unmarked kettle. Chicken fajitas were offered; however, no tortillas were available despite asking day after day. It was not uncommon to see waiters, servers and bartenders couching ...
