Itinary was very good. History and archeology interesting in Greece, Turkey and Italy. Excursions to Delos and Ephesus excellent, with superb, knowledgable guides. Crete was disappointing as no organised tours to Knossos, we hired a car, but only had 1.5 hrs there. Ship could have docked for longer to allow visit to best sites. Ship itself was clean and the staff friendly and helpful. The ambiance around the atrium was noisy, with loud non stop pop music day and night, more relaxing, quiet music would be moe appropriate. The cabin was a disappointment with 3 adults, as the sofa bed was a foam topper on the sofa. We have had proper pull out beds on other cruise ships. The food was average in the main dining room; it was uninspiring, with an additional daily set of dishes. The buffet offered a more extensive range of cuisine, but the carvery and vegetables were cold or luke warm at best. The classic drinks package was included and good, even if we were encouraged frequently to upgrade. The entertainment was good in the main theatre as was the singer and group performing around the ship. The female duo, playing the violin and cello were pretty bad. Ben Fogle was on board, and gave two excellent talks on his activities and adventures.. He also led one of the excursions to the volcano on Santorini, although we did not take part in this trip. We did not take part in any of the activities on board, so have no comment on these I probably would not sail with Celebrity again, unless the itinary was unmissable. We have sailed with Princess, P&O, Holland America, Royal Caribbean and Silver Seas in the past.
