Absolutely Fabulous

Sail Date: September 2013
Destination: Greece
Embarkation: Istanbul
At the age of 67, we decided to go on our first ever cruise. Chose the Celebration as it sounded friendly and not too formal.

From the moment we boarded, we were made do feel so welcome. Had cabin 658, it was spot on and our steward was so lovely. In fact all the crew were wonderful. We chose to eat in the Meridian every night and shared a table with another couple we got to know. We had the same table each night. We can't speak too highly of our waiter, Tata. I wanted to take him home, he was so cute. Both he and our wine waiter got to know our names, their attentiveness was first class.

Thoroughly enjoyed the Captain's Gala Night, Captain John was a really good people person.

There was so much going on all the time, it's impossible to do everything.

The shows were excellent, the highlight for me was the Queen show, the show team certainly delivered. The comedian was Dave Christian, very good, not a swear word in sight.

Of all the bars, we More liked Hemingways the best, great for pre dinner drinks.

The cruise we did was Ancient Wonders, very interesting. We did a couple of excursions and did our own thing on the other ports of call.

Because we enjoyed our cruise so much, we have decided to do another, next year. The Dream this time, we will look forward to it so much. Less
