We took the repositioning cruise from Fort Lauderdale to Amsterdam because on our honeymoon ( over fifty years ago) we visited Amsterdam, Paris, and Brussels. All three of those countries were visited on this cruise with Lisbon added on ... Read more

Our 4th Celebrity Cruse and 2nd repositioning. The food was some what erratic in the main dinning room and actually sent back one meal. The Spa was nothing but a sales event. Had a good massage but she kept trying to up sell me from the ... Read more

We wanted to just get away from it all. The 8-days on the sea as part of the transatlantic part of the cruise was awesome! We really enjoyed that part so much!! We also enjoyed the ports we visited. Embarkation for us was easy! We ... Read more

Last year we did the Reflection June 17 Mediterranean sailing. The ship was beautiful and our cabin was great (Standard Balcony on the Hump). But i wrote a review on some of the obstacles we encountered and never heard back; i did the ... Read more

We chose this cruise for the ports and to enjoy the leisure time on the crossing. It was our first transatlantic cruise. The service from our butler and room steward were outstanding. We enjoyed dining in Luminae, however we were not ... Read more

We chose this cruise for the itinerary (Miami to early off in Villefranche), the price, and one past experience with Celebrity which was mostly positive. The embarkation was smooth and efficient. Welcome buffet was good, and our ... Read more

We booked this transatlantic cruise from Miami because we needed the rest before getting to Europe. Easy check in on the arrival in Miami Port. We sure had a relaxing time, we enjoyed the main dining room every night (we did not feel the ... Read more

The ports on this cruise were attractive even though we had already been to Tenerife and Malaga. We have friends in Malaga so this was a good opportunity to catch up with them. We boarded after 2 pm so there was no wait at all to ... Read more

We have previously done this repo cruise but wanted to do it again. We flew on a direct flight from Newark to San Juan the day of sailing. We arrived in San Juan just before noon and headed directly to the ship. My wife has mobility issues ... Read more

We decided to give Celebrity a try after hearing rave reviews from family and friends. We set sail on April 22, 2017 out of San Juan Puerto Rico. It was one of the easiest ports to sail out of and we would definitely sail out of this port ... Read more

All the buzz was about Captain Kate and it turned out to be mostly true. Our first Female American Captain (and one of the few American Captains at that) set a positive and fun tone for the ship. The Captain attended many public events, ... Read more

This was our first trip on Celebrity but, after doing a Transatlantic last fall, we have learned that we like sea days. This was a trip that provided a new port for us (Bermuda) as well as three sea days and all occurring over only one ... Read more

I have found Celebrity to be above all the other cruise lines I have taken in food quality, service, and overall pleasant experience with minimal children running wild. Although it is an older ship, the smaller size allows passengers to ... Read more

This was our first-ever cruise. We were very happy - and relaxed - the whole time. We did not do any ship-sponsored excursions, preferring instead to go ashore. I didn't like the ports right by the ships, where it is obvious they are ... Read more

We chose this cruise after seeing an advert in the UK DMail in late 2015 and just fancied the itinerary. I thought, 'looks interesting, like those stop-offs, I wonder if I can get it for less . . .' After some investigation and maths I ... Read more

This is rated as a 5-star ship - it barely approaches a 3-star, no wonder it needs a refurbishment! I would suggest a total makeover or sending it to the scrape yard. Some of the negatives: Too few restaurant staff and mainly very ... Read more

The ports visited. The crew were very friendly. The food at times was fine. Embarkation in Abu Dhabi was a shambles. Some show were excellent others very amateurish. Not sure I use Celebrity again. Money making in your face ... Read more

Loud type of music spoiled the atmosphere for us. It seemed just noise. Most of the crew was pleasant but some were just there. Specialty restaurant service was better than the food. The $18 above the regular added price for dry aged ... Read more

We selected the Celebrity purely as leisurely transportation to Southhampton. There were other options available for the crossing, but this ship stopped at Bermuda and Lisbon which we wanted to visit. We had been on the Celebrity Summit ... Read more

We both wanted a serious break from running our on-line business and this was the ticket. Departed from Miami at 1630 on the 16th of April. Check-in was very smooth, line was long but we buzzed right through....very organized. Initially ... Read more
