Celebrity should stick to longer routes as these short, fun Bahamas cruises do not seem to be their specialty. I have been on this same ship (same exact Sky Suite) for a 7-night Alaska cruise so I can easily describe the difference. The staff seemed as if they had to be there to fill the 3-night revenue stream, not because they wanted to make for a fun vacation. The bartenders, while speedy enough barely smiled and said thank you, the concierge was okay as he was probably bored since there is little to do, we saw our butler once, the food was okay as lunch (in Luminae) was the same everyday, and overall just not much to do on this small ship for three days. To top it off the room wasn't all that clean as they turn the ship around very fast same day. Unfortunately for us, we never got to either Nassau or Coco Cay due to winds, so instead they took us to the disgusting area of Freeport, Bahamas. While I did not reduce my rating due to them having to circumvent our original stops (as I understand safety comes first), the cruise line did nothing to make up for the lack of stops since we stayed on the ship for three days straight. Dis-embarkation was a nightmare! I am not sure if the cruise line can do anything about that so again, I did not reduce my rating, however it was not worth the wait for a 3 night trip. Overall, I do not recommend Celebrity for a short trip, however I do for a longer trip.

Celebrity is better on long routes, not short Bahamas

Cabin Review

Sky Suite 2
Cabin S2 6104
I love the Sky Suites as they stick out from the boat and offer a beautiful balcony - they are mid-ship. I have stayed in this room two times.
