The good: Fast embarkation, very clean, good food at main dining rooms and buffets, attentive stewards, good comedians. Some good shows which included an excellent singer. The bad: Awful ship layout, the balconies are flushed and bellow you can see the life saving boats instead of the water. Some rooms have the “magic carpet” bar passing in front of their verandas invading their privacy. The balconies at the left of it looks toward your veranda. I had one of those cabins even though I payed full price for balcony. Food in main dining takes long. At the gym no special protein shakes available like other ships. No greeting upon entry the first day, just ugly wooden statutes at view. Some ports are bad unless you are there for excursions. San Juan, and St Martin were good. I have been in 20+ cruises and this one stood out for boring, and for its bad layout. 85% of passengers were 65+. Not many activities or amenities around. Not recommended for kids our the young.

We have never been on a new ship and wanted the experience. We were not disappointed. You have a choice of 4 main restaurants each with its on ambience. The food was great and plentiful. There was no need to spend extra money on specialty restaurants. The atmosphere was unbelievable and one could see that Celebrity spared no expense. There were so many different area on the ship where you can enjoy the scenery from Eden to the Roof Top Garden. The only disappointment were the shows and the reason for only 4 stars. They were more of a Cirque du Soleil but not your typical shows. While we enjoyed the dancing and acrobatics, we just could not follow the theme. They were very eye appealing, but that was it. All in all I had a very nice time. There were many venues where you could just relax. The spiral ramp way in Eden at the rear of the ship was such a place with a magnificent view of the plants or ocean from the floor to ceiling windows. I would certainly recommend taking a cruise on this ship, but at a minimum the “Infinite Veranda” should be the cabin selected. This cabin provides additional room space since it becomes part of your room with a window that you can raise or lower with your finger. Read Less

Our friends we traveled with booked this cruise and we decided to join them. The four of us are in our late '50s. It was a long transcontinental trip for a week, but we've done it before. We all live in San Diego. My wife and I came in a day early and rented a hotel room; our friends came in on the night before the first day of the cruise on a redeye and met us at our hotel at sunrise and crashed with us for a few hours before we all went to the ship around noontime. EMBARKATION: Wow... fastest embarkation ever (and we've cruised DOZENS of times). From exiting our Uber from the hotel at the port to the time we had a glass of sparkling wine in our hands was literally 14 minutes!!! USE THE CELEBRITY APP and pre-enter EVERYTHING and you will be on this ship in no time. ACCOMMODATIONS: We don't normally do verandah cabins anymore since we've cruised so much... even inside/outside cabins are okay with us. However, this time we decided to splurge this time on the much-hyped "infinite verandah"... are we glad we did it? Yeah. Would we do it again? No. Others may differ with our opinion, but the "infinite verandah" is basically an outside cabin with a window that opens. Duh. We all know that. However, the difference between this type of cabin and a "real" balcony cabin is that for one thing, the bridge can close that window ANYTIME they want to. They did it THREE times during the week. Secondly, when you open that window, the air-conditioning SHUTS OFF. If you're in a real balcony cabin, you can go outside the cabin and sit in the chair and shut the door behind you if your spouse doesn't want to sit in the heat (Caribbean). However with this cabin: window open? No A/C. There IS a door between the "balcony" and the room, but if that window is open, same deal no matter whether that door is open or closed. Plus if you want to listen to the ocean going by during the night, with a regular balcony, you just leave the door open; with this cabin, they can shut it automatically. Okay...enough of the cabin differences. You get the picture. The room itself was very modern. Some folks have complained there's not enough space to store your stuff.... but there are little cubbies everywhere in that room, plus all the modern conveniences everyone needs now to charge your electronic gear and what not. This was also the first time we'd been on a ship where the door opens OUT instead of INTO the room... thought that was kinda weird. I know...subtle, but just stuff you notice. FOOD: 95% Fantastic. The 5% was the disappointment in the "Tuscan" restaurant... we all were expecting an Italian meal, but it just didn't hit the mark the night we went in there. We did only the Raw on 5 sushi (specialty) restaurant and didn't do any of the others. You eat so much on these cruises that by the time we thought of perhaps going to the Steakhouse ($65pp upcharge), we were pretty well saturated and probably wouldn't have enjoyed it compared with maybe doing it earlier in the week. We were going to do the Le Petit Chef, but decided against it as it had kind of a limited menu and seemed more "kid" oriented. You can see how it works on YouTube. Our suspicions were confirmed later in the week as we spoke with a few fellow passengers that did go there and they thought the same thing we had and said had they had the chance, they wouldn't have gone there -- but great if you had kids. We did do the Raw on 5 TWICE (once at the beginning and then again the last night).... yes, it was that good. And our thoughts on these newer ships is that to get REALLY good food, you simply have to pay the upcharges (in addition to paying a pretty HIGH price to even get on the ship). For a week, this was the most money we've spent on a cruise ever and we've got about 30 cruises under our belts in as many years. The Celebrity food was still good even if you didn't pay extra so really no complaints there. The buffet up on 14 was OUTSTANDING with a very nice layout compared to other ships. The pizza area in the back and the Mast grill (burgers, fries) was also a hit. OTHER THINGS: The much anticipated "Magic Carpet" movable bar/restaurant hasn't been working (i.e., going up and down) since January. It did move ONE deck in the seven days but obviously was moved overnight. We had no tender ports and all dock ports so they say that's used for tendering. It was cool, though, going out there to enjoy a very windy cocktail experience ;-) DISEMBARKATION: Very smooth. The four of us hung out in the Cafe lounge on deck 4 till the VERY end, even beyond our numbers being called. This was optimum as by the time we got out of the building to get an Uber back to the hotel/airport, there were hardly any people still around so it wasn't as crowded. So there's a suggestion for you. TAKE. YOUR. TIME. and enjoy that extra Latte on the last day. Also Customs was pretty much nonexistent. You stared into a camera and it took a picture of you and you were done. The ICE guy was too busy checking out his Facebook on his phone to be bothered to ask you any questions.... no, seriously. So all this said, it was a great cruise.... a bit pricey and a long way to travel for a week, but a great cruise. We've now done the RCCL Oasis and now the Celebrity Edge...both innovative modern ships. It'll be interesting to travel again on an older ship, but we've been there before. I think this is a great ship for newer cruisers to enjoy, but there's a lot to be said for the cruises from 'back in the day"... Read Less
