Good food, beautiful ship lacking in maintenance, heavy handed crew tactics

Sail Date: Dec 2015
Cabin: Inside Stateroom 10

Fourth time, at least, on this ship. Good food, warm very pleasant pools which were dirty, beautiful ship in need of maintenance. Cabin lovely, spacious as ever. Security and guest relations staff downright creepy. They confiscated radios which belong to my family, despite having no cause to do so as they were not on the prohibited item list. They made false allegations of causing interference, and demanded that our family allow ship staff to browse thru our luggage in our absence. Many passengers said all they wanted to do was get off this ship as soon as they could.

Celebrity management and staff do not believe their passengers' factual statements nor are they interested in accommodating them. When passengers assert their rights in the face of Celebrity's curious behavior, celebrity staff retaliates.

If you value your liberty, property, family, peace of mind: do not book a Celebrity Cruise.

Cabin Review

Inside Stateroom 10

Cabin 10

Spacious, clean, but odd smell, that of mold and fuel oil. Anyone who's been aboard a steam powered military ship knows it. Cabin stewards very polite, attentive, responsive; they work very hard and clearly are overworked. We left them generous tips, they deserve them.

Port Reviews

Fort Lauderdale (Port Everglades)

A kindly Broward Sheriff's deputy, upon our return home, asked why we parked in the paid garage when Celebrity has its own area for passengers. We thanked him and stated that we had no idea of this, Celebrity didn't make that known to us. The port is just fine in all aspects.

Key West

Rained, didn't get to see much of it. Nice but dirty and a great deal of in-your-face displays and behavior. The port had more going for it when the Navy and fishing fleet predominated.

Cozumel

We had the best of it ten years ago. Very crowded, overly forested with too many trees which block what were once lovely vistas.
