This was the first time we had been on the celebration, and it will be our last, having been with other cruise lines , this is the worst ship we have sailed on, it juddered all the time even when in port,towels thread bare , ship very cold in the public rooms when we asked reception why is the ship so cold we were told that it was because it was a little cooler outside, when asked if they could turn the a/con down and put a little heating on to compensate for the weather we were told no. People were sitting in the lounges with their coats on or covered in blankets , food was ok but there was a surcharge of £9.00 for steak which is unheard of on other cruise lines, very few sun beds not nearly enough,people were putting towels on them at 7am in a morning then going back to their cabin, having said this our cabin was spotless ,the entertainment team were great , pity about the other entertainment as the singers were rubbish ,restaurant staff were great nothing was 2 much trouble,very few shops on board , overall we did enjoy our cruise around the Middle East great destinations especially Dubai, to see what Dubai has to offer u need at least 3/4 days there , we saw quite a lot on the hop on hop off bus which for £52 pp a day wasn't cheap .

Cabin Review

Cabin 617
We had an inside cabin, which was kept really spotless by our cabin boy, bed comfortable, only complaint was that the towels were really old some were thread bare and fraying around the edges
