We chose this particular cruise due to the itinerary and it taking 14 days. We had only ever sailed once before from Fort Lauderdale and could not remember the port at all. The staff there were very friendly and extremely efficient, checking in only took 10 minutes. It was lovely to walk back on board a Celebrity ship, welcoming as usual. As we were early first stop Café Al Bacio and a big hello to Rico - Barister whom we had met on 2 previous cruises this year on Constellation. The cabin was very very clean and Alfredo our steward was a very friendly guy who nothing was too much trouble. The meals in the main dining room were very good and to be honest were better than Constellation. Entertainment was one very big let down. The comedian was awful and so were most of the guest entertainers. Where were the dancers, they only did 3 sessions on the whole trip. Earlier this year they did at least 5 sessions and were amazing. The ports made up for the entertainment. Most of them were new to us and did not let us down. Roatan we had a brilliant taxi driver and for 2.5 hours we had a brilliant tour and he and the 2 of us never stopped talking (like old friends) Costa Rica was a delight with all the wildlife we did not expect. Panama - well I now need a full transit cruise Cartagena was old world magic and the wildlife around the docks too was amazing. Key West too was delightfulI but I would not be bothered if I never saw Costa Maya again, along with Cozumel and Grand Cayman. Disembarkation took 2 hours to clear immigration and the hall was way to stuffy and hot.

Great cruise, with unexpected finds

Cabin Review

Deluxe Ocean View with Verandah
Cabin 1B 9228
Very clean and comfortable mid ship balcony but beware, they cleaned the balconies nearly every other day. Dont leave anything out or it will get wet.
