This cruise was marvelous and we loved every minute of it. We arranged our airfare ourselves and arrived in Venice a day early. Well worth the extra time in Venice. Beautiful though we we disappointed in the graffiti all over the city. We took a water taxi to the ship with another couple and that made it so easy. Celebrity greeted us at the water taxi station and took our luggage while we walked over to the ship. It took less than 5 min to get our keys and then we were on the ship. We were not Con. class but were greeted with a glass of champagne and escorted to our cabin. That set the stage for a wonderful cruise. Our luggage arrived about 2 hrs later. All ports of calls were fantastic though I found Athens nothing more than a very big city with amazing ruins. Santorini is something we hope to go back to along with the Sorrento coast of Italy. VilleFranche was such a quaint little town we never left it to go to Monaco, but then we had visited there a few years back. We loved the ship, the crew, the food, and the service. We were made to feel special the entire cruise. Everyone had a smile on their face and it amazed me how the crew remembered me and my wants. For ex I only had to ask for diet soda once at dinner and every night when I came down,there were 2 diet sodas waiting for me. We found the food exceptional. Everything just as our waiter described, food cooked to our desires and great company. I thought the entertainment was great, but by husband did not enjoy it as much and felt it was less than professional (dancers). I loved the comedian, but he didn't but overall we were not disappointed. In fact, we love the service and Celebrity so much, we booked another cruise with them for Feb of 08, before we left the ship. This was a cruise of a lifetime for us and we had high expectations. CELEBRITY DELIVERED!!!!!!
