Sail Date: Oct 2016
Cabin: Outside Stateroom with Bath/Shower

Cruise chosen as a way of seeing the Caribbean and enjoying lengthy times at sea.

Ship is a fantastic ocean going vessel and rides it so well.

That's where it ends. Very tired and plain looking even after a recent refit. the biggest disappointment was the food. You would never starve but boring, bland old peoples food. No taste, no flavour etc.. I suppose they are catering for the age of the traveller(79 on this cruise). Even Sindhu served a Rogan Josh that had rubbery beef and NO chilli. No heat at all. Similar in the Medina and buffet(school cafeteria). The beach house served overdone lobster and scallops(twice, so disappointing) especially paying for the privilege. Having sailed on Celebrity Solstice previously the food was a major letdown. Dont go if food taste is a requirement. Plenty of areas to hide away. Crows nest is good. Peroni draught in Champions cold and fair priced at 4.95 Pint.

Cabin Review

Outside Stateroom with Bath/Shower

Cabin KB

Good cabin adjacent Raffles, ease of access, good size, bath/shower. No need for a balcony as crossing the Atlantic and Carribean days ashore. A good choice
