Excellent Cruises

Sail Date: August 2009
Destination: Europe - Western Mediterranean
Embarkation: Rome (Civitavecchia)
What a wonderful experience, Celebrity are by far the best ship my family has been on. The staff are friendly, helpful and kind and cannot do enough for you. The bed room is lovely clean and tidy, not enough hanging space though for three people and drawer space a little tight. The third bed comes out from above the sofa. The main resturant is lovely i would recommend asking to sit of the top floor near the balcony because this gives you a lovely view. The food is excellent and service fantastic. The Murano resturant is the best experience in eating and would definately recommend this, but not for children. The bar staff are helpfull and smiling always. We noticed a few difference:- we did not have to put on lifejackets for the drill all done by video, no announcements in the bedroom, no long queues to get of the ship. If at a push i was to look for something to moan about I would say the shows (except for the production shows) are terrible, their is no where to get a More toastie sandwich outside late at night and cup of tea (you have to make it yourself) and there is no central location midship for people to gather only the sky lounge and that is on the 14th floor at the back of the ship so no one goes there. Also the cocktails that go round are $10. The crepe (bistro) you have to pay for and the coffee shop you have to pay for. Not good considering you are on a five star ship and have paid alot of money to travel. I would however give this ship 10 out of 10 and cannot wait to book another cruise. Enjoy Less

Port and Shore Excursions

I was very excited to do this trip to the Pyramids and the Nile. The tour guide, coach and driver were excellent. However you should remember to only take $1 bills with you Lots of beggars, loads of them it is very hard they try to take money out of your hand and it is very uncomfortable. The trip of the Nile was like a river boat on the thames. Nice touch but not great location looked like you were in central london Pyramids were lovely lots of beggars, they ask you to ride a camel and try to snatch money out your hand you need alot of one dollars which you should keep in seperate pockets I am pleased i saw egypt pyramids but will never go again it is grim
