The ship although rehauled was dark, which made it seem dingy. The food in the main dining room, Blu and Tuscan grille were also a let down, especially since we cruised the Mediterranean on the Equinox which is the same class of ship and the food on that was spectacular!! We were disappointed as we were hoping for the same quailty dining experience. The food in the ocean view cafe was, however , very good every day. The ship was spotlessly clean. We even observed them steam cleaning the hand rails! A+ for clean! Room was very comfortable especially the bed, which for me is the most important attribute. Cafe Bacio was excellent and the only place on board you could get a decent cup of tea. Although it will cost uou extra. The tea in ocean view was horrible, like warm dishwater. Very poor quality. Definitely not what you would expect from a Celebrity Cruise. I did hear that they hired an executive from carnival to cut costs. Whether that is true or not the quailty of food has gone downhill considerably. The ports of call were excellent which is why we chose this cruise also the 123 go promotion. However, the excursions were very poorly organized. We lost an hour at the hermitage due to poor cruise opetators.We will not sail with Celebrity again until the food improves.

Port Reviews

Stockholm

Loved Stockholm!! Don't miss the changing of the guards at the Royal palace it was amazing. Starts at noon but get there at 11:30 for a good vatage point. The city is clean and extremely easy to get around. The hoho bus and boat are worth doing. We did an archipelago dinner cruise on a 1930 steamship. Excellent and I highly recommend it!! Also dinner at The Burger Bar, just off a cute little park with great food!
