  3. Marella Celebration
We chose the cruise for the ports of call. The crew were excellent and all ways very helpful And the food was as we expected good English fair. The celebration is showing its age in places especially in the cabins the one we had 542 was a little noisey and the vibration is a little to much when at sea. The layout of the ship is unhelpful if you eat after eight in the lido restaurant and you wish to have a drink in Hemingway bar you have to go down two decks then walk along the corridor then back due the show in progress in the showroom. The shore excursions were mostly of good value although the one to Copenhagen had to start almost a hour and half away as the ship had docked on the other side of the island. We chose to dine at all three specialist restaurants mistrals and kora al were very nice but hot stone was very poor because it was overly complicated and in fact not a very good steak at all. The midnight meal of burgers and hot dogs was very welcome if get the munchies after a few drinks speaking of which the John smiths was always very nice. Although when there is a full complement of passengers there is a shortage of seat in all the bars.

Excellent ports of call but could do better
