A great cruise with a great ship

Sail Date: November 2012
Destination: Europe - Eastern Mediterranean
Embarkation: Venice
Our 3rd time with Celebrity now on their newest flagship! Veranda Rooms are sufficiently spacious for 2. Storage in new cabin design seems a little less but after we discovered additional space above the bed -reminds a bit of caravans storage room- it seems just sufficient. Of course if you'd take a lot of different wardrobe for every formal occasion then it might be too limited. So better be choosy when packing! - the bathroom design is now really great especially the shower , even if you have a couple of kilos too many, you can still turn around.- other nice facilities include the hideaway which however deserves that name only during daytime when there is no performance at the main lobby.

Same observation is true for the library.- worth mentioning also the main buffet restaurant Ocean View Cafe: nicely scattered food isles instead of the walled fashion on older ships: gives less cues apparently. Another nice place to enjoy either reading or just watching the sea or at busy More times dancing or just drinking is the sky observation lounge on deck 14! And if weather permits the sunset bar is a must!- about the lawn club with its real lawn I have my doubts that it may survive long due to the salty air at sea! We'll see.- service as usual on Celebrity mostly good, sometimes even excellent like at Muranos. Food at main dining room with one exception in 10 days was very good with a couple of highlights there too.- Fitness is not really my topic but definitely the outside pools are too small!- announcements on the ship: just the absolute necessary, what a bliss! Less

Cabin review: 2b

Closet space limited. Bathroom space sufficient and very light environment ! Bed excellent! Veranda with wonderful view depending on the available panorama of course.

Port and Shore Excursions

Far too touristic despite late in season: the old town consists only of shops and restaurants for tourists, not one place that local people would frequent! Everything nice to whatch but no real life!

Venice is the place to see especially if you can still depart via Canale Della Giudecca! Long after that comes an arrival at New York Hudson River port.
