Sail Date: Sep 2015
Cabin: Deluxe Obstructed Ocean View Stateroom with Balcony

Having been on the independence of the sea twice, we were looking forward to this new ship (booked before the ship was finished) what a disappointment, no atmosphere, dining the worse we've ever experienced, very repetitive menu, with the exception of a few members of staff, they seemed as fed up as many of our fellow passengers that we spoke to were.

The North Star was very good, as was Two70, shops on board mainly consisted of very expensive jewellery and watch shops. Some of the shows were very good especially We Will Rock You. but the theatre is poorly designed that it is difficult to see the full stage from many of the seats, so glad that the itinerary was good even though the ship wasn't, definitely back to Celebrity cruises for u.

Cabin Review

Deluxe Obstructed Ocean View Stateroom with Balcony

Cabin DO

Cabin size good, although it took 4 days before the noisy balcony door was put right, the obstruction that blocked the view was a very large life boat, if you sat down on the lounger that was all you could see, to the right of the balcony was a smokers room so if you sat out that was all you could smell.
