Leaving NY/NJ
Sailing past Verrazano Bridge
Home away from home for two weeks
So nice to have a veranda in your cabin
The convenience of important information shown on cabin tv
Ship's position on cabin tv
Sunset at sea
Slow pace for a change!
And they both deserve it!
A prayer for those brave firemen
Our last stop in Manhattan

We were accustomed to Celebrity on several recent cruises but remembered nice ones that had been taken with other 4 RCCL ships.

This time because of convenient dates we decided to take this cruise and were not happy we had done so.It started at embarkation in San Diego when our passports were kept by the attendant at check-in with the information that they would be returned aboard. Little did we know at that time that they were being confiscated to be returned only at the very last night of our cruise.We did not receive any plausible justification for that action and were always greeted with certain discomfort at guest relation desk with "legal reasons" excuses.

Being deprived of our documents ( the only legal documents to be used on international travelling) generated unnecessary stress during the entire journey as we felt insecure to disembark in foreign ports of call without the necessary identification.

Superior Ocean View Stateroom with Balcony

Cabin D2

Small cabin with old tube TV with very tiny shower.

Convenient location away from noise.

Excellent service by cabin attendant Tiza
