Have cruised several times, but this was our first on Celebrity. As we were cruising with three other couples, to celebrate three of our birthdays, we were restricted on when and where we cruised. The other three couple are from the US, so we knew we would be cruising out if Florida and this cruise from Port Lauderdale suited us fest.
Embarkation was extremely slick, almost straight on to the ship, unlike many previous cruises.
The staff were excellent, with a capital E! Extremely helpful, cheerful, preofessional, approachable and always service with a smile.
Food was excellent too. Dining room food was better than our last couple of cruises. We had three specialty meals,for our birthdays. Muranos was just the best, food and service perfect. We are quite a rowdy crowd of oldies, but we were in a separate room off the restaurant, so we didn't disturb anyone and could enjoy ourselves without offence. Tuscan grill, the food was good, but the service not so. A bit disappointing after Muranos. The Ocean grill was great, fabulous variety of food. We had breakfast and lunch here. Also found a nice little cafe in the solarium late on in the cruise and had a very nice salad and dessert here one lunch.
The entertainment was the best we have had on a cruise. Shows excellent, especially the Beatles, Broadway songs and the comedians were hilarious.
We had an obstructed view balcony, which was fine, but the life boats were pretty obvious if you wanted a clear view. We would definite choose that category again. Balcony large enough fir two chairs and a small table. Cabin very comfortable, plenty of wardrobe space. Bathroom seemed bigger than prior cruises.
We had the free drinks package, just the classic one, but it want we could also get speciality coffees and water as well as drinks. This package suited us fine. Plenty of bars to drink at, good disco, silent disco was great fun.
Only moan fior me was the exorbitant price of Internet. Ridiculous, and many people decided it was too high, judging by the number of people at every port in the nearest bar with Wi Fi, on their phones and iPads! This really needs to be addressed.
Disembarkation was just as slick, straight off the ship. Very impressive. Read Less
