Additional details

Sail Date: Mar 2018
Cabin: Deluxe Veranda 2B

We booked the 16 night cruise for our honeymoon, all we received as an onboard perk was a flyer wishing us a happy honeymoon with $5 each free play in the casino, some discount in the overpriced spa and an option for a photo shoot but the photos were charged as an extra.

Last time I cruised with Celebrity in 2011 with my late husband to celebrate 25years of marriage we received many extra perks, obviously CC’ s are now saving costs. The whole cruise was based around extracting as much money from clients as possible despite already having paid a substantial amount of money to purchase the cruise.

I sang the praises of CC’s to my new husband (a first time cruiser) and I was very disappointed, we will think twice about sailing with them again.
