We chose this cruise since it was going to all of the ports we were interested in going to. We were both celebrating our 70th birthdays.
We have been on Celebrity before on an Alaskan cruise two years ago and were quite satisfied. However, this cruise left a little to be desired. The cabin was very nice and our cabin steward was terrific. Even though we are now 70 years old, we are not old and feeble and like to enjoy life. We were disappointed that a lot of the bars were not open late in the evening....we had to go to the outdoor bar (which was a little chilly) to get a drink after 11pm. The ice bar was open but was crowded.
Also, as far as the buffet is concerned, we were disappointed in the lack of variety of foods. It seemed that it was mostly the same day after day. The Tuscan Grille however was fantastic!!
We didn't utilize the shore excursions from Celebrity due to their price. We were able to get the same excursions through Costco at a lower price. Our dining room steward Hary was magnificent...night after night! In fact, we have received an email from him stating that he enjoyed serving us and hoped to see us again.
