It was a good price and we wanted to go to Bermuda and usually love the transatlantic crossings. With an overnight in Bermuda, I thought we would have 2 days to enjoy our time there. However it was really less than 24 hours and the timing of our arrival was not great. Because it was still considered winter season, the ferry boats weren't running to St. George so most of our time was riding buses.Because we had to be onboard at 12:30 the 2nd day we couldn't really do much. Even the stop in Portugal was late so we were limited in the things we could do. Arriving in port at 3 and staying until 9 didn't work since many things closed at 5. The menu choices and the food on the ship left a lot to be desired. The beef was good but I have been limiting my beef by doctor's orders. The other choices on the menu were a little strange. The fish and salmon was often dry and flavorless. The desserts were very good though. Although there were a few good shows, some weren't the best! The ILounge series was great with RIchard, but too early in the day for us. We only made the last day. The other enrichment series weren't our cup of tea. We watched some of them on tv, but didn't attend after seeing them. The cruise critic meet and mingle was a joke. Just some information was given and most people left. No gifts or much else.

Not what we expected from Celebrity
