Going around the horn was a bucket list item. That box is now checked.
The ship itself is showing wear and tear -- nothing broken, but obvious use and lack of cosmetic maintenance.
The cabin showed similar wear -- a broken hinge here, lumpy well-worn mattress, towels that might once have been fluffy, scrathed woodwork. Again, nothing was really broken, but work is needed.
Dining was great. We ate in Blu. The staff was excellent and attentive -- Tanya, the maitre d', Rosabel, who knew everyone by sight in once day, Eduardo a wonderful waiter, Rina the attentive and friendly assistant waiter, and Fernando, the stellar sommelier.
The activities staff was among the best I've encountered. They were active, fun, and smart. William and Dean helped make the cruise. The production shows and guest artists ran from very good to fantastic.
Service was excellent -- as expected. Bar staff (especially Rodman) were on the ball. Cafe del Baccio was staffed with great people.
Since the point of the cruise was going to the bottom of the world and rounding the horn, special notice goes to Mickeylive, and thanks to Celebrity for having people like him on board to educate us.
The shore excursions were not varied, we didn't have to agonize over a choice, but the ones offered were good, and we certainly felt we learned and got value from each. The last day trip to Estancia La Mimosa was excellent and the Tango show was fantastic.
Would we go again? This was my trip, the wife said "ok, i"ll go". But when we were boarding the plane to go home, she said "Let's do this trip again".
