- Cabin Type: Deluxe Ocean View with Balcony 2A
This trip and our last (Alaska) is more for adults than children and this time as the last, there were very few children onboard. The entertainment and activities are mostly geared toward middle age and up but the muted disco nights at Martini Bar was good for anyone aged teenager and up, as were the disco nights in the Constellation. There are activities available for children too but to be honest, I'd be bored if I was an active kid on a cruise such as this. Obviously babies and toddlers wouldn't know the difference though.
Captain Berdos was wonderful, personable and humorous and all his staff were fantastic, from officer status through to cleaning staff. Every one you passed acknowledged and greeted you with a smile. Our stateroom attendants Bartholome and Frank were fantastic - nothing was too much trouble. On both our Celebrity cruises, we witnessed constant cleaning and hand sanitising which ensures the safety and health of the guests. One lovely guy was constantly cleaning stairway railings and greeted everyone with a smile.
Choice of dining was fantastic and every dish we had was fresh, tasty and served at the correct temperature. The buffet dining was excellent and they have a whole crew of cleaners to completely scrub every item before the next meal is put out. We renewed our marriage vows with the captain and the events coordinator Adriana was superb. She arranged everything so that we had a wonderful memory to take away. All the staff seem to be hand picked - incredible customer service right throughout our cruise and it never slipped once. We used to love the iced cold towels at the ship when returning from excursions in the heat and humidity, along with fresh fruit flavoured iced waters. We will always travel Celebrity because we can be sure of the standards.

Port & Shore Excursion Reviews
Cabo San LucasBecause we hadn't enjoyed the previous Mexico excursion, we actually cancelled the one we had booked for Cabo. We were glad we did as we had a lovely few hours walking through the lovely town and marina areas, with plenty of time to look for different souvenirs and chat with some of the vendors.View All 1,302 Cabo San Lucas Cruise Port Reviews

La Popa MonasteryWe enjoyed the tour only because we were in such a new and different place for us. We felt there wasn't enough time for shopping for souvenirs and too much time was dedicated to visiting churches of all types!View All 22 La Popa Monastery Reviews
Panama Canal TourVery interesting tour of the canal and we were very lucky that there were three ships going through. This excursion is really a must, so that you can understand better what happens during your own ship transit through the canal.View All 95 Panama Canal Tour Reviews
Panama CityAgain, too much time dedicated to visiting churches and not enough to shopping for different souvenirs than you'd ever see in America or Europe. With only one chance to visit Central America, we didn't wish to be spending precious time in churches.View All 31 Panama City Reviews
MiamiWe were staying at the Holiday Inn Port of Miami for three days before the cruise. Super location and close to everything you'd want to see in this area.View All 2,395 Miami Cruise Port Reviews

Puerto Quetzal (Antigua)Again, too much time dedicated to visiting churches and not enough to shopping for different souvenirs than you'd ever see in America or Europe. With only one chance to visit Central America, we didn't wish to be spending precious time in churches. However, Antiqua was very interesting and it was amazing to see a totally different country to our own.View All 299 Puerto Quetzal (Antigua) Cruise Port Reviews
