Sail Date: Sep 2016

I chose this cruise for the itinerary, as it is unusual to find one that does a round trip in this region, and the ports looked great. I would do the same trip again, but not on this ship, and not with Celebrity.

The ship was reportedly recently refurbished, but there seems to be no evidence of that, other than change in a couple of venues. The entire ship just looks tired and worn. Cabins desperately need to be gutted and redone completely. Mattress was fairly firm but sunken, so not very comfortable. Counter tops of vanity and bathroom are spotted & scarred, shower tiles mildewed. Woodwork is chewed up, scratched, and a bit grimy. Balcony & its furniture are messy, dirty, and needing replacement or more thorough cleaning on a regular basis. TV is tiny & not working properly; and the heating & A/C needed servicing twice in my cabin.

I was Really disappointed in the food in both the OceanView Cafe buffet and the dining room. Completely sub-average on all counts, and Celebrity seems to have substantially downgraded their menus & food choices over the past couple of years. The section labled "Gormet Selections" never once had anything but sad, bland, country-cooking style over-cooked, unspiced & unimaginative meats and plain-everything. Gormet???---HA! Totally unacceptable food for a cruise line, and every day the same boring, bland choices without variation. Stale saltine crackers are the Only crackers provided with the appetizer cheeses. Can you believe serving Brie with saltines? Well that's all you get. Seems that the desserts & Sushi are the only things that Summit chefs feel the need to provide lots of choices, even if the same every single day.
