This cruise was part of imagine cruising itinerary, golden triangle for 6days then cruise.
Enjoyed Dubai , wish we had more time in Abu Dhabi and Muscat . Usual hassle with Indian red tape and visas , but not celebrity’s fault . Unfortunately felt ship was showing its age in certain areas especially in communal areas , we prefer aqua class , but here again not quite up to mark as far as cabin goes , not much power in shower even when head replaced! Dinning was good especially in Blu and Tuscan grill , buffet lunch did tend to be a little samey and could be better organised but it is a smaller ship alround , which also meant fewer areas to just sit and relax with a coffee or a drink , martini bar was far too noisy which was a shame as we usually go there for pre dinner drinks. Can’t comment on shows , only went to one but it was ok . The service was good every where just what you’d expect from celebrity . Bit disappointed by on board shopping choices .
Very disappointed in shore excursion in Dubai for 4x4 dune drive camel ride and refreshments , camel ride was only once around parking area and refreshments not really Bedouin style .
Biggest problem was not being able to find a sun lounger in day as so many selfish people would put towels books etc on them before breakfast and often leave them there for long periods in day while they went to do something else , it is celebrities policy to remove towels left after 40 mins , but difficult to police as people were so aggressive, shame on you if you were one of these selfish individuals .
Would have much preferred one with out the large overhang , which meant we didn’t get sun in day , but none available when we booked . Apart from poor power in shower room was fine , but could do with being upgraded .
Not as good as advertised. Very disappointing.View All 20 Desert Safari Reviews
