Ports of call: Ft. Lauderdale, Key West, Cozumel, Belize City, Roatan, Grand Cayman, Ft. Lauderdale
I've been on 3 cruises on the similar size and similar built ships. I'm 30 something and like to travel.
Check In - Very fast (rated A+) Arrived at Ft. Lauderdale after 2 PM. Picked up our luggage at the airport. There were representatives at the luggage claim area to pick up passengers with transfer. I asked about the transfer price. The lady was nice and told me the transfer was $10/person. For 3 of us, we could take a taxi to the pier for $10. The Pier was only a few miles away, very nearby. Took the taxi to the pier, were dropped off at the luggage loading area. There were bags all over the place. The porters at the pier must be in a union and not hesitant to ask for tips. I tipped him and walked to the check-in hall entrance. There weren't many people at the check in hall. No line. Checked in was very fast and done in a minute. We received the shipcard then walked onto the ship where they took our pictures for the ship card. The ship card was plain white, not colorful as the Norwegian. They passed around champagne and there was a line of Celebrity uniform staffs waiting at the gangway to take passengers to their rooms. Our room was on the 7th floor mid ship. The room was very small, 170 sq ft, with a 30 sq ft balcony. We had a 204 sq ft. room with 38 sq ft. balcony on the Radiance of the Seas on our previous cruise. The sofa was twin size and open up to a narrow twin size bed. There was only one table/drawer in the room and the closet was not as big as the Radiance. The bathroom was bigger than other ships though. To my surprise, the sofa bed was very comfortable. Our luggage was delivered to our room by 5 PM, very fast service.
