We arrived at the port early because we were uncertain of delays along the way do to driving approximately 3 hours to get to Ft Lauderdale. We had no issues finding a space in the parking garage adjacent to the terminal. We decided to drop off our luggage and then park which was a brilliant idea. It was an easy walk, very convenient from the parking garage despite the cost. When inside the terminal everything was clean, orderly and not much of a line. They were using a temperature gauge on all passengers and also manually checking all passports. They were on it and had several lanes open. It was a very thorough and organized process and despite there were no lines. The staff was very professional, friendly and helpful. They were open to ask questions at the same time used their time effectively. While waiting to go onboard they did announcements that were clear and concise. The seating/waiting area was very clean and comfortable. There was also a charging station for phones, clean restrooms etc. The boarding process: There were announcements which were clear and concise. They called Concierge Class to board first. The second group by Captain's Club status. Zenith, Elite Plus etc. We were onboard in no time at all. Greeted at the door with a wonderful glass of Sparkling Rose. Love it! Again I can not thank and praise this staff enough for being positive, friendly, thorough during these uncertain times. Staterooms: Well enough space/storage. Clean. Stateroom attendants on it. Staff: Captain's Club Hostess Amy did a fantastic job Hotel Manager Dan was friendly, professional and always helpful. Sky Lounge staff did an exceptional job as well Guest Relations Staff always helpful too All around outstanding Staff including the Captain. Dining: We had 2 meals at Sushi on 5. Again great service and really good food. Dining Room: Exceptional service. Our favorite food nights were the Prime Rib, Rack of Lamb and Lobster. Staff including the dining Hostess were always trying to do their best and we appreciate that. We made our reservations online prior to cruise which made it a worry free process. Ports: Even though we missed the first Key West port stop due to high winds we still had a great day enjoying the sun and all activities. All the ports were great on this cruise. A fantastic cruise all around. The staff goes above and beyond and we appreciate. Special thanks to Dan the Hotel Manager. We will definitely be cruising again with Celebrity in the future. Read Less

It was AMAZING hard to know where to start first!!!!!! The Passport Bar hands down the best (3)guys ever!!! They knew our names...what we wanted they were friendly and so much fun!!!! They definitely will be missed....I hope to see them all again very soon.Tuscan restaurant was SUPER yummy!!!! The waiter was very helpful and attentive. I loved everything about this boat!!! The comedians were great!!! Corey being the best!!!!!!! Our night meals were so good!!! The fella that served us wine knew so much about each and everyone of them. He also suggested some really good wines for us. Everything was so........so.....clean! Any bathroom at any point was spotless. The whole group on this boat honestly makes a great team. I told my husband next trip me and him are definitely taking this crusie line (boat) . This was my first time I went with my mother in love and aunt and uncle....I can't wait until next time..... I felt like a princess the whole entire time...spoiled rotten to the core!!!!! Read Less

We have cruised with Celebrity once before on the Equinox and absolutely loved it. This time we brought along our brother and sister-in-law. They are hooked now as well. We love this ship, it's never too crowded, always very clean, the veranda cabins are spacious enough for the two of us. The beds never bother our backs (which is saying something because most hotels do). The main entertainment is always great, a good variety of singers, stage shows, comedians, and magicians. All excellent. Even the rest of the entertainment is not to be missed. The activities are fun, we always enjoy the trivia games. The service is wonderful. Ask for almost anything, they will make it happen. Our cabin steward (#7222 - Wayan) was there several times a day and usually greeted us when returning to the cabin asking if we need anything. The hostess (Victoriia) and wait staff (Anam & Andrej) in the dining room were great, our waiter even got us a dessert that was not on the menu that night as we missed it the night before when dining in the Tuscan Grill. The dining is OUT OF THIS WORLD. We never had a meal we didn't like. The Tuscan Grill has delectable food as well. Their steak is mouth watering and you can cut it with your spoon. We stopped at San Juan, St. Thomas, and Nassau. We did the Walking Tour of Old San Juan, it was OK, we got to see the fort at the tip of the island and walked into the island where our tour guide showed us different places, monuments, and a church. I wish the tour guide would have had a microphone though, as we could not hear much of what he said. In St. Thomas we did the Sapphire Beach & snorkeling. Bus ride to Sapphire Beach (about 1/2 hour) then a beautiful beach for swimming (snorkeling is difficult). A free drink ticket. Food available for purchase (we had burgers and fries). Then a ride on their Sky Drive back to the ship which was breath taking with the views it offered. Not to be missed. We were not allowed off the ship in Samana, Dominican Republic. They finished reviewing our health records 1 hour after we gave up and left at 2pm or so. I don't suppose they will do very well as a cruise ship port if they can't get it together a little better than that. Celebrity handled it beautifully, giving everyone that booked excursions through them a full refund and giving everyone a credit on their acct to use by the end of the trip equal to one day of cruising. The on-board shops were bustling. Nassau, Bahamas was beautiful. We booked the Funky Jeep Tour and our tour guide was great. Funny, informative and accommodating. We did several stops to include the Queens Staircase, the Junkanoo Museum, John Waitling's Distillery, Tasty Teas, and a wonderful lunch. I would definitely recommend this excursion, we saw a lot of the island and were left with quite a bit of time to explore on our own before the ship departed. The only bad review I have is we purchased transfers ($15 each) to the Fort Lauderdale airport with a departure time of 9:15 am from guest services on the ship. We were still waiting at 9:30 am when our luggage number was called. It took no time at all to get through customs, but once outside NOBODY seemed to know where we needed to go. 4 different people told us 4 different places. We finally found a large coach bus that was for our transfers to the airport (with a line of 50+ people). The person loading the luggage was VERY slow. I would estimate that it took at least 30 seconds per passenger to check their paperwork and load their luggage. That doesn't seem like much, but when you've got 50 people waiting....that's 25 minutes to load the bus. We did not have time to wait as it was now 10:30 am and our plane was scheduled to leave at Noon. So, we opted to take a taxi instead - $25 for four people and 6 big bags of luggage. MUCH BETTER DEAL and WAY faster. Overall, I give our vacation an A+++++. Read Less
