Problem with this cruise is that it is no way to tour Europe. We chose this cruise for the number of ports. We got shortchanged, especially in Salerno and in Sicily where the excursions ran us through like a herd of cattle. One hour in Pompeii? Give us a break. They should have docked there for 2 days and in Sicily as well. Also sad is that you will never see the nightlife in these towns since the ship has to move on. The Celebrity staff was very nice and accommodating partially because we were on the concierge level and you do get treated a bit better there with your own concierge. The cruise director was excellent but the entertainment was very mediocre. Celebrity also nickel and dimes you for everything. Glad we had some inclusive packages. The thing you really should decide when you tour Europe is whether you want to actually see and experience the culture and people or whether you would rather play Bingo, see mediocre shows and eat ship cuisine instead of local specialties.
