Celebrating Celebrity

Sail Date: January 2014
Destination: Eastern Caribbean
Embarkation: Fort Lauderdale (Port Everglades)
This was our 2nd Celebrity cruise (Summit to Bermuda in 2012 was 1st) and was chosen despite being to the Caribbean a few times already this had a new port that interested us...St. Kitts. The ship was recently upgraded we were told and upon embarkation which was as smooth as can be, we were struck by the beauty and elegance of the interior. We were handed welcoming Mimosas and met our traveling companions (my son & his fiance) at the lunch buffet. The food was fine, just about what you expect and the cabins were ready pretty much as scheduled. While smaller than Carnival's cabin our 9th deck balcony room was very livable. One thing I would change is the location which was on the curve where the ship juts out a little. I would prefer to be on the flatter portion only for better sight lines.The luggage (2 of the 29 inch bags and 2 of the carry-on bags) fit easily under the beds. The cabin steward gave us the many extra hangers we requested and when asked told us he would keep our More ice bucket filled...he did. It turned out that our late-seating dinner table was directly next to the Captain's table and may be the reason I believe, that we had the best waiter I've ever had on a cruise ship. He would do anything for us to make us happy and he was so much fun. We laughed so much people were looking at us. I almost hated not showing up the night we booked the specialty restaurant QSine which I feel is a must for anyone who wants a great eclectic meal. Believe me it's worth the extra cost.

The entertainment was really very good with some spectacular production shows. They did some stunts right out of Cirque du Soleil...and their late night spicy comedy show was fabulous. We actually enjoyed the art auctions on this cruise. I was not thrilled with the female Cruise Director. I thought the scheduling of things like trivia contests and karaoke and late night music was poorly done. Always seemed out of synch with meals or shows. Disembarking was beautifully handled. All in all a great trip with a great crew. Less
