  3. Grand Celebration
My husband and I have sailed with this company at least 15 times, both on their previous ship, the Bahamas Celebration, and more recently (4 times) on their new Grand Celebration. We have brought many friends and family with us and everyone we have brought has had a wonderful time (including several of our relatives and friends who are extremely critical of everything.) A number of them have sailed more than once. The cruise line has hired the most wonderful, friendly, efficient, thoughtful, talented and caring staff, from maintenance, housekeeping, wait staff, bar personnel all the way to the top officers. Everyone greets you with smiling faces and a nice "hello", a lot of them even remember names and faces. The Entertainment Director has had the ability to secure excellent talented performers for all their show lounges. There is a wonderful theater, a show area adjacent to the casino with a nice dance floor, a disco, a piano bar, and a more intimate nightclub lounge, which is where we usually wind up. The bar staff has the ability to make even the most complicated drinks, and there is an extensive drink menu at each bar. The pool decks are expansive, there is never an issue with finding a deck chair, and there is nightly entertainment on the pool deck also. The spa is wonderful! The staff there is very knowledgeable and proficient at what they do. Their photography staff is the best we've seen on any cruise line. We have a difficult time selecting photos because usually we want them all! The chef and his crew is amazing, they provide meals onboard that are comparable to any ship we have been on, and we have sailed over 40 times on Celebrity, Royal Caribbean, Princess, Carnival, Norwegian, American Hawaiian, and Chandris Lines. Their specialty restaurant has a wonderful menu and is half the price of specialty restaurants on other ships. The chef and his crew is amazing, they provide meals onboard that are comparable to any ship we have been on, and we have sailed over 40 times on Celebrity, Royal Caribbean, Princess, Carnival, Norwegian, American Hawaiian, and Chandris Lines. There is a very nice and diversified casino onboard also, comparable to other ships this size. They offer the least expensive Wi-Fi of any of the cruise lines, for those who must remain connected. The children's areas are wonderful and we have seen many children having a wonderful time there. We have met several people who use the cruise line on a regular basis, one couple we know have sailed over 100 times, another gentlemen travels every other week with his elderly father, and I don’t believe they would be travelling as often if there were scams regarding this cruise line. All in all, this has become a quick two night getaway for me, my husband, co-workers and friends as well as family, and we will continue sailing as long as the ship sails from West Palm Beach

Cabin Review

Cabin R41
We opted to purchase a cabin upgrade for an additional $49.00 at the port in order to be closer to my mother-in-law (92) who is disabled and had a single cabin. The cabin was spacious and comfortably appointed, as was the cabin my mother-in-law was assigned. There was plenty of room for her walker as well as her handicapped scooter..
