Trip Details
  • Sail Date: Oct 2017
  • Destination: Transpacific
  • Cabin Type: Concierge Class 2

A relatively EXPRENSIVE 17 DAY TRANSITION CRUISE TO SYDNEY FROM HONOLULU...Lots of people sick from on board virus..(removed number 0ver 200). food in dinning room and buffet monotonous and bland. Asst Ma'de tried to calm us down over food issues and brought chef to us--who then made excuses about trying to please guest who didn't like spicy or tasty food. (Cruise line trying to please wrong people). .Ports ok... Specialty results were good=with the quality one used to find of Celebrity.. Stale crackers in essentially forced quarantine. What we were offered for restitution totally inadequate.

Service on board was great except for room service who may have gotten overwhelmed because of serving quarantined guest. Restitution offered only for days you had sought medical treatment. Had to smooze staff to get a refund on excusion we were unable to go on due to sickness. Policy exist to only refund those unable to attend during quarantine. (we had been sick for two days before quarantine)... Won't be traveling Celebrity any time soon... Kudos to our cabin attendant Lenie who went far beyond the normal call of duty. We were in 9356... This was out 19th cruise..

4k video will soon be posted on you tube..

Bora Bora and Sydney were the best ports.

Ackland cultural experience excursion Disappointing--2.6 hours on bus thru NZ countryside not mentioned beforehand.
