Took the opportunity to take this cruise because of the stops at China and Japan, it was great to get a taster of these countries. Ship has had a full refurbishment since we last cruised on the Millenium and it looks much better although some did not like the color choices we thought they were ok. Cabins are fitted out much better and have a little more room thanks to the shorter couch. The bathroom is better and feels like it has more room and the shower head is much better and you get a much improved flow of water. Interesting that in general areas floor coverings were done but ceilings and edging, doors and some furniture remained the same. We noted the reduction of the gym size and the loss of the library for more more state rooms. The buffet restaurant layout has improved and the food good. We were disappointed with Blu restaurant we felt the quality of the meals had dropped from our last cruse how ever the staff were excellent as always. Staff service in general was excellent and it was great to see the crew just as pleasant and happy as the last cruise. Entertainment was ok as was the ship tours that we did do. The self organised tours we did with the cruise critic forum groups were great, smaller groups and set to the specific interests of the group. We also did a few shore based tours ourselves which were also very good and cost effective. All in all the cruise was very good and what we expected. Read Less

My husband had been wanting to return to Asia, and I suggested this cruise. It was supposed to be 14 days, but typhoon Hagibis delayed our departure for two days. Pro #1, Celebrity was very generous with the compensation they offered, including refundable on-board credit and future cruise credit. However, this brings me to my first con, which is misleading e-mails. After booking this cruise, a blanket email was sent out stating that we needed a Chinese visa and we would need to be fingerprinted. I had already looked into the requirements for a Chinese visa and believed we didn’t need one with our itinerary. Upon calling Celebrity, they confirmed that we would not need a visa. When I suggested that perhaps their email should mention other options, they explained they prefer to have individual customers call in and confirm their personal requirements directly with Celebrity. (Upon reading posts from our cruise and similar cruises on Cruise Critic, this issue is a cause for concern for many travelers.) We received another misleading email after our cruise was postponed, saying we had missed the ship and giving us information on how to catch up with it. This email was sent out accidentally to everyone, and again it caused a lot of concern. Getting to the ship was also a bit of a nightmare, which is con #2. We had booked transfers from the airport in Tokyo. There was no dedicated place to sit and wait for the bus. We landed at about 2:30 and around 4:30 an agent took us to an outdoor area where we waited another half hour. It was windy and raining lightly and not very warm. Upon getting to the port, there was no canopy to unload under, so we waited in the rain while the bags were being unloaded. The actual process of checking in and boarding was quick and easy, which was a plus! This was a very busy cruise of 12 days, with only one sea day. There was a free shuttle to the center of town in many of the ports. We did a variety of shore excursions; two private, two through the ship, two days where we just got taxis, and days where we used the shuttle service and explored on our own. I have no complaints about the ship excursions. When we hired taxis, our taxi drivers had a translator program on their phone, and they got us where we wanted to be. We were very happy with the service they provided. I thought that there was lots of variety in the main dining room, and I was happy with most of the dinners we had there. The servers and wine steward were friendly and personable. We had select dining, and we didn’t have any trouble reserving the same time and table for every night. Breakfast and lunch we ate in the buffet, unless we were out and about exploring a port. As a sandwich and salad kind of person, I was very happy with the selection and freshness of the ingredients. My husband often had pasta cooked to order, and he seemed happy with his selections, too. The pizza was also a favorite. We enjoyed the Sunset Bar on the back deck, and the Rendevous Bar on deck four. We loved the servers in both bars. Con #3, however, is that sometimes it seemed that options for bars during the day are limited. For example, the bar on deck twelve, forward on the ship, (I always call it the Crows Nest!) did not open until 7:00 or 7:30 at night. One night when we stopped up there, it was open for Elite members only. We’ve cruised a lot on Holland America, and we’ve enjoyed having bloody Mary’s in the forward bar during the day. We really missed that! One of my favorite things on a cruise is to connect with the crew and staff, and Celebrity did not disappoint in this area. The cruise director and many crew members were very visible throughout the cruise, and as always, I was amazed at the staff members that remember our names almost immediately. So even though there were some cons, the wonderful staff, comfortable cabin, and satisfactory food made our overall experience very good. P.S. A word about disembarkation. I feel that Celebrity did a good job of preparing us for disembarkation in China. But we still waited in line a long time at immigration. Just be patient; everyone is in the same situation. Read Less

I choose to go on a cruise due to everyone saying what a great time and quality of food you get and as I am in remission from cancer I thought that this would be a great way to relax and be pampered how wrong can one be first the port we were told to get to was wrong we had to get a second taxi to the correct port then on boarding we were told that the lunch was in the ocean view restaurant but as we were with the concierge room we should have been sent to the main restaurant for our embarkation meal and as this seemed to be the only advantage with concierge class room what did we pay the extra for we were informed by another passenger that we could have had our meals in our room but we're not told that this was free we assumed that as in hotels this is at a cost. The next problem was that when while in the ocean view restaurant this first time we tried to get a drink we were asked to sign for them as we did not have a drinks package although we had paid for this so I had to go to pasangers relations desk to find that we had been given cards without the correct information on it so had to have them replaced. When ever we wanted a drink it always seemed to be a problem finding a waiter to order it from and this happened for the whole cruise. Now we come to the dinner we always needed to que for the main restaurant on the 4th deck and wait to be seated and when we asked if we could book a time for the next day we were told that we should do it the next day as they could not do it at the desk but when we phoned the next day all we could book when we finally got through all we could get was 6:30 or 8:30 as all the rest we were told were booked before the cruise on line, as for the meals and service this was one of the most disappointing parts of the cruise as the meals were poor and not the fabulous experience we had been told to expect the meat was always a small quantity but the vegetables consisted of a small scoop of mashed potatoes 4 or 5 sticks of carrots and a piece of broccoli and on one occasions I ordered a pork chop and was given a lamb shank and my wife ordered ravioli she got three under Cooked packets then to get a glass of wine to go with the meal was always a chore and twice I could not get the waiters attention to order it so went without. On one visit to the restaurant we were taken to a table only to be asked to sit at opposite end of the table as the six that were sitting down had only left the seats this we refused to do and then were asked to stand by the plate collection station to be seated at another table but after 10 minutes we went back to the entrance and asked to speak to a manager who came and took us to another table where we sat for another 10 minutes on our own and we were asked for our order which we did and our starters came up just as the remaining six turned up to be seated of coarse we waited for out main coarse for everyone to eat together, this ment we were in the restaurant for well over 2.5 hours but we never managed to get out for under 2 hours and this meant that if we wanted to see a show we either missed the start or as we did on two occasions leave without a desert as the service was always so slow. The cabin was ok if it wasn't for the fact that one time I went onto the balcony when the door came of the runner trapping me outside and if it had not been that my wife was inside and with the help of the cabin boy managed to lift it onto its runner how long would it have been to release me the only other fault with the cabin was that the door closer/restrictor was not connected this was corrected very quickly The ship had been refurbished in the last year but had more faults that should have been fixed other than our cabin one of the doors to the deck one day was tied up with tape but this did not stop water coming through it and across the passage this we pointed out to staff but they did not even say thanks for pointing it out another much more worrying thing was when in the solarium I noticed that one of the roof glass panes was moving I moved away but when I looked up a little latter this pane was missing one assumes that it when out to sea as if it had come in then someone could have been killed but the crew did not rush to move people out of the area just asked them to move back and as there was quite a wind if it had got inside all the glass could have come down and one shudders to think what would have been the result the deck should have been shut as it was at the end of the cruise this would not have been too much of a problem When walking throughout the ship areas varied in the heat some were ok but a lot including the theatre were cold When we were to disembark as concierge class we thought that we got preferential treatment but no we had to stay in the theatre for two hours for our turn to get off. If I had know about Cruise Critic before booking I would not have taken this cruise as there were 4 reports about the poor quality of the food and service they were on Alaskan and transpacific cruises taken In September just before this one.
