I have taken more than 40 cruises and this cruise was by far the best. Nothing was to much trouble for the staff and you were always greeted in a pleasant greeting. Everything worked from the checking in to the disembarkment. Food was amazing, entertaining the best I have ever seen. I never really attend the shows as they are not worth going to but this cruise it was outstanding. Well done. Ports of call were great and the talks were well worth attending. 5 stars and thank you Celebrity for an amazing itinerary I loved every port of call and the immigration process in India was stress free a great deal of preparation was put in place to ensure it ran smoothly and the communication to the process was well documented. We had an inside cabin on the 3rd floor near reception which was very central and also very very quiet. Reception was amazing and Dinner waiters Pasha and Sunil who served us was also 5 stars.

We chose this cruise 2 years ago for the different port it was offering. We had never been to India, or Sri Lanka so now was the time. The ports were underwhelming and though we knew that India would be dirty we were surprised at the level of rubbish left lying around with no need at all for it. The ship may be older but was clean and take into consideration it is going to dry dock in a few months time there are worse ships out at sea at present. The ships entertainers were the best we have seen for a long time and their new productions shows make a refreshing change. Guest entertainers - well its hard to please so many nationalities. The Food could be better and is not as good as has been In the past and portions could definitely be slashed in half. According to one chef the portion control is down to "Miami", well stop cutting corners elsewhere and provide smaller tastier dishes again. The service from the crew was brilliant as always Read Less

We had an aqua class cabin, which allows us to eat at Blu restaurant. We loved it. Much more quiet than the main dining room. Service is slower than MDR which allows us to drink our wine slowly and enjoy a good cup of herbal tea. We never felt rushed. BLU by itself is worth the extra. Cabins size is the same has regular veranda. Love the Celebrity cabins. A lot of storage for clothes and also in the bathroom. Nightly entertainment was excellent except for 1 night. Unfortunately, we had to use the medical facility. Staff were amazing. Doctor and nurses were quick to answer our needs. We now feel more secure knowing the medical staff is so good. We had lunch at the buffet few times and each time we had a hard time getting a waiter to order beer and wine. We had to go to the bar d get the drinks ourself. We took 1 shore excursion with the ship in New Mangalore and we loved it. No shoping stop. Guide was excellent and interesting. We already booked our next cruise in an aqa class cabin! Ship needs a liitle update! Read Less

We chose this cruise because I wanted to go to India and my husband did not. With this cruise I got to see some of India, but he got to eat and sleep on the ship. Many of the ports were very similar with nothing outstanding to see. The one excursion we took through the ship was in Phuket - Phang Nga Bay. The day was rainy. I thought if the weather was too bad Celebrity would cancel the excursion. Since they didn't cancel it, I thought it would be safe to go. I was sadly mistaken. The stilt island we visited was very slick. Walking up and down the very steep gang planks was also dangerous. But that was nothing compared to being on the water in the pouring rain! The driver's of the boats could NOT see where they were going. One of the boats got stuck on a sand bar. The boats themselves were uncomfortable and dangerous because the wooden bench seats were not secured. That said, the buffet lunch was better than I expected. However, I would not recommend this tour. That was the bad part of the cruise, but everything else was good or great. Our cabin was wonderful. The meals were mostly very good with serving sizes plentiful. The entertainment was great, in fact, better than most cruise ships. Embarkation and debarkation went smoothly and quickly. My husband and friends loved the guest lecturer from Hollins College. Service was friendly and fast. Read Less

It is probably easier to state my one complaint, than to cover the very many aspects that I thought were great about the ship. My only complaint was that some of the entertainment on the second leg of our cruise was a repeat of our first leg. However there were new acts, all of which were of a very high standard, and given we were sailing through the Middle East it would have been very hard to take new performers on board. The food was great ( particularly Luminae restaurant where we went on our second leg after our cabin upgrade). All the staff around the ship were fantastic, friendly and helpful. The cleanliness standard was high. I loved the thalassotherapy pool ! The lectures on ports of call were interesting; and boarding and disembarkation was easy. Unfortunately Celebrity joins other cruise companies by "nickle and diming" for so many things but this is my 4th cruise now so am accustomed to being expected to pay through the nose for extras such as bingo, movies. I do not understand why the companies do not make these things more accessible by lowering the cost. Given this was a maiden voyage itinery of the Middle East and India , there were some minor hitches with ports of call, but this can happen any time due to weather conditions.I would definitely sail again with Celebrity so that probably speaks for itself. With regard to shore excursions we only did one, and as usual that was well orgainised Read Less
