Chose this trip because of itinerary & even though we booked 14 months in advance we weren't able to get outside cabin. In general trip was great. Ports were really nice, with beautiful scenery. We generally travel on Celebrity but really enjoyed & appreciated the crew for their service and helpfulness. We do our own excursions so I cannot assess the ship's excursions, but I will say that disembarking in some ports was done very poorly with passengers lined up on stairways for many floors. It was ridiculous. I also do not understand why ship does not have a shuttle going from ship to port exit. In some ports it is a very long walk which is not easy for those who have mobility issues. We chose anytime dining & made our times in advance of getting on cruise so we never had to wait. We found the food in dining room to be good, with extraordinary service by Melissa & Dev at dinner. Breakfast service in dining room was very slow, but enjoyed the relaxation. Really enjoyed salad bar lunchtime in dining room. Am not much of a show person as I spent evenings in casino. Casino personnel were friendly & helpful. Of the Shows that we did see some were very good & some not so much. We found the music groups that played in the Centrum were terrific & the show band excellent. Embarking & disembarking from cruise on first & last day was excellent. All in all we found the cruise terrific, with this ship looking worn & in need of refurbishing.
