Overall a fantastic experience and we met some great new friends (other cruise critic members). The opportunity to communicate with them prior to departure and organise to form port tour groups was a great way to see the sights and enjoy great company. The check in process was great and considering just how hot it was at Venice ( + 41 degrees) the cold drinks were appreciated. Drinks on the Helipad while leaving Venice was spectacular so thank you very much to the Best Captain in the World, the Greek God, (not my words, Cruise Director, Alejandro) Meals: Ocean Liners Restaurant we tried the 50% discount special offer first night and the food and service was fantastic. Great initiative to encourage people to try the restaurant. Blue Restaurant as part of Aqua Class was always great and much quieter for dinner. Please have a Sauvignon blanc available as part of the basic drinks package. San Marco main dining room we tried twice with new friends, but unfortunately we found it very noisy and food and service out of three would be 1.5 only sorry. Ocean View Cafe for breakfast and the occasional lunch on sea days was great with plenty of choice. Loved the Sushi bar thank you. However the drinks option at the Rear of the ship Bar we found it interesting on the drinks package basic that beer on tap was considered premium only but the glass bottles were not for Heineken? Cafe al Bacio great spot for sunset drinks, coffee breaks and liqueur coffees. :-) Bistro on five we were surprised to find this was not included and an additional cost. This may indicate while it always appeared to be empty unless you wanted a quiet spot away from everyone. The Martini Bar is popular but martinis overpriced is you are on he basic drinks package only. We did not appreciate the hard sell by the bar staff to upgrade all the time. Maybe some more chairs would be an option as the regulars never leave the ones around the bar. The ship photo's are too expensive and if you charged half the price people would buy them and you would not waste all that paper and harm the environment. The entertainment we attended the following: - Hypnotist - average - Staff dancing anything goes show - scary - Guitar singer in Cafe al Bacio - Good - Alejandro was very amusing. ( He is from Argentina) Would we try Celebrity again? Yes the Solstice Class.

Cabin Review

Aqua Class Balcony
Cabin A1 949
Cabin was great and what we expected after watching reviews on You tube prior to selecting.
However every night we had the noise from the crew packing up the Pool lounges directly above us.
Service and facilities were good.
Our Valet ( Jerald) was attentive and helpful at all times

The extra shower jets are not really needed
