We have loved Celebrity for 14 years and would love to see it return to its former place as number one in our minds. The people are still the best, but the product is no long a good one.
The itinerary for this cruise was perfect, until they rerouted it. The final itinerary was about half of what we originally wanted. The shore excursions for the replacement ports which we had visited before, meant nothing new. On one in Naples, we literally drove around the block six times, seeing the ship each time and then stopped at a cafe for one scoop of gelato and drove up a hill for a picture and then back to the ship!
The food was okay in the dining room, but less so in the cafeteria style dining. The quality of the food seemed to diminish with the day, so that the evening meal was terrible. Plenty of food, but nothing to eat.
