Just returned from our 25th Anniversary trip to Europe, having spent the first week on the Constellation and most of a second week on land. Perhaps we should have done it the other way around, as Celebrity had definitely spoiled us with all the ice-water we could drink, unlimited towels and food, and constantly refreshed cabin . . .after that, traveling on land was a rude awakening!
My husband, three teenagers (15, 17, 20) and I are experienced cruisers from Wilmington, NC and this was our second Celebrity cruise out of approximately 12-15 total; we definitely feel Celebrity is at the top of its tier with regard to service and food quality. [We had even taken a chance on Costa cruises last summer, only due to the itinerary offered for Northern Europe, and were sorely disappointed by crew decorum, lack of free water to drink, and absence of food availability between meals and late at night.]
First to arrival:
he cabins we had were 7123 and 7127, both interior; there was adequate closet space, a nightstand per person, and the bathroom had storage in a cabinet under the sink. Beds were comfy. As always, I could have used more hooks to hang things on. Our kids' cabin needed to sleep 3, and we were unpleasantly surprised to find out that there weren't bunks to be pulled from the ceiling, but rather a fold-out cot/sofabed, which occupied much of the little floor space there was. Apparently, there are pull-out bunks on Levels 2 & 3, but not above those levels. As usual, the loveseat and cocktail table provided often were more in the way than useful in these smaller cabins, and I often wonder why there aren't at least tables that can be folded up or down against the wall to make more room.
What must be said is that we found our cabin steward to be excellent (not intrusive and quickly adapting to our sleeping in!) and fellow passengers were very respectful of others at night--never did we hear loud conversations, TV or music, running in the corridors, etc, all of which plagued us on Costa cruise line.
waterfront area with large plaza, restaurants/cafes/shops; walked back to National Theater, where we were to have met our tour guide for an independent walking/biking tour of 3 hours duration, but we missed it due to tendering. A music festival was going to be occurring in a few days and there was a flea market set up in a square, and a statue whose feet one rubbed for good luck, but our day had started off on the wrong foot. Not Split's fault--maybe next time we'll have a better experience.
Beach was OK, water great; town was easy to walk through; windmills are photo op; wish we had more time to give it a better explore
