We arranged for a morning driving tour of Rome before proceeding to the port. Our bags were checked in with the cruise line at the airport and transferred to the ship for us. Our tour arrived at the port about an hour and a half prior to sailing so the check-in lines were minimal and check-in was fast and efficient. All bags were waiting in our cabin when we arrived. The selection and quality of shore excursions were good, especially for a repositioning cruise. The most popular was by far the camel ride in Lanzarote. Very reasonably priced and well worth it. The production entertainment on the ship was very good. The guest entertainers were nothing special. We had seen ALL of them before on prior transatlantic cruises. The food and service in the main dining room was mediocre at best and certainly not up to Celebrity standards. Menus were fairly blase. The MDR has been cut in size to accommodate specialty dining. The dining room is crowded and service very slow. We rarely received a hot meal. Our waiter apologized and said that the food for the main dining room is preplated to allow emphasis on the specialty restaurants. He also said that main dining room staffing has been cut. He said he wasn't proud of the food he was serving and agreed that it has certainly slipped in recent months. The buffet was a good alternative and food was served hot. Bistro on 5 was TERRIBLE. Extremely POOR service for an alternative dining venue.

Cabin Review

Ocean View 4
Cabin 04 XXXX
Being the most forward cabin on the deck, the positioning of the cabin allowed for extended length of the cabin. That being said, the room was sparsely appointed and despite a lot of dead space, storage was minimal at best. The small sofa near the window was torn and worn with obvious stains. The beds were arranged in a single king configuration, however, the linens did not properly fit the bed.
