We chose this cruise for the ports. We really enjoyed all of them. I would highly recommend this itinerary. As far as the cruise experience, we were slightly disappointed in the shows in the theater. The guest entertainers were pretty good, but the ships production entertainers were something you would expect to see on a Carnival ship or something of lesser quality. With the exception of the two Russian acrobats, they were awesome. We also detected a little bit of an attitude from some of the workers about the ship when we asked for information or help. But that was the exception and not the rule.
The ship was fantastic. It had just been remodeled. Everything was in top shape.
The sea days seemed to lack the normal amount of activities. Possibly due to cutbacks, but there were only two, so not a big deal. Celebrity has the nicest spa area of all the companies we have sailed with. We love the bubble pool. The food in both the dining room and the buffet is great. There were always a wide variety to choose from.
All in all we had a great time, and we would do this cruise again. Celebrity is one of our favorite lines.
Or cabin was very nice. We really like the larger showers. And we also appreciate the bars of soap instead of the body wash dispensers. Our cabin stewards were great!.
We arrived a few hours before the cruise departed. No time for tours, but there is a lot to see there
We did a bus tour and walked the main street.
We did 3 different local tours. You save a lot of money by not booking through the ship.
We had a great tour with a pedal taxi. They are not as cheap as some of the others, but you get more of a personal guided tour. They charge by the hour, so you can see as much or as little as you like. They can stop at places the busses can't.
