Context: fourth Celebrity cruise; third in the Med. Self and wife travelling. Pros: Best service in buffet we've had. Very efficient and friendly. Food up to standard. Good service in MDR, but some meal sizes have got very small - like the lamb main course which had three pieces of leg of land each around 3" x 1". Excellent experiences with Lawn Club Grill, Murano and Tuscan; all with superb food and service. Great itinerary lived up to expectations. Good embarkation and disembarkation. Some great guest entertainers. Cons: Temporary blockage of Ashdod port very badly handled; people queued for almost an hour on deck 3, while booked taxis and buses waited outside. Should have been 2 queues, one for people who KNEW that their taxi/bus had arrived. Also, this wasn't a one-off surprise event; it had been happening through the summer, so no excuse. As many have said, "in house" production shows are poor in comparison with previous ones which used well-known material. Some songs with lamentably weak lyrics Also, female singers very screechy, and not a patch on the men. Also poor in comparison with an impromptu show put on by CD Sue Denning when a guest performer had to back out - an amazing voice! This cruse made me happy to book Celebrity again, as long as price rises come to a halt.

Generally excellent with superb service; just a few niggles.

Cabin Review

Deluxe Veranda (partially obstructed view)
Cabin 2C 6243
At start of hump, slightly rear-facing, port side.
Only view down affected; view out over lifeboats is fine.
Great location near elevators, but no noise for the atrium.
No issue with smoke from smokers on deck 5.
Definitely one I'd go for again.
