From the time we arrived at the Sydney Terminal everything was streamlined and very organised. We had Stateroom 1083 Concierge Balcony located towards the front of the ship. The corridor was very quiet as was our room. Our 2 room attendants were discreetly efficient, polite and friendly making us feel welcome and nothing was too much trouble. We booked special dining at Murano (and took their cooking class) we were not disappointed. Also booked Tuscan Grille which was superb. We were a little disappointed in Silk Harvest with the selection as we dine out in Asian restaurants quite a lot when visiting Sydney. We found the food selection in the Oceanview Cafe first class. The Eggs Benedict were the best we have had (our favourite breakfast). The spa is spacious and variety of treatments excellent. We found all crew and staff on board friendly and polite. We enjoyed our shore excursions and found the disembarking and embarking process smooth and quick. We also enjoyed the entertainment on board very much. When it came time to disembark our cruise in Sydney the whole process was hassle free, organised and quick. The ship is very attractively designed and decorated. We would definately cruise again with Celebrity and recommended them highly.
The bathroom was larger than on Sea Princess with a better layout. Our bed was very comfortable and we had a selection of pillows to choose from. We enjoyed our canapes each afternoon delivered to our room. The television was large and adjustable to watch while in bed. A comfortable lounge faced the bar fridge next to our balcony. The balcony was larger than Sea Princess with reclining chairs and a small round table. We were also able to adjust our air conditioning.
The various islands are exactly what you would expect Pacific islands to look like. Beautiful and peaceful.
