We chose this cruise because Celebrity offer a premium experience in a relaxed environment. Our mindset was to have the best holiday, and that is what we had. The crew were amazing led by the wonderful Captain Tasos. The Cruise Director, Ben was an absolute professional, and the entertainment was always enjoyable. The standout performance in the Solstice Theatre was by the headline act, Australian Pianist Kym Purling. Also onboard was the wonderful Ray Brown Quartet who played two shows a night in the main lobby and the Ensemble Lounge. We did the behind the scenes tour which commenced on the Bridge with the Staff Captain doing an excellent job of explaining the ship's operations and finished in the Ship's galley after stops at the laundry, engine room, cool room, recycling room, crew dining room and bar, well worth doing. Another highlight was A Taste of Film, outside on the grass deck with a big screen - deck chairs, seven course dinner paired to the movie "A Hundred Foot Journey" and bar service - even the Executive Chef arrived at the end of the movie to check everything was ok. It is so easy to have a good time on this ship, can't wait to be onboard again.
