Disappointing Weather Beleaguered Odyssey to the China Seas

This was out tenth cruise with Celebrity plus a further three more with the RCCL Group, and overall, this was by far our worst cruise experience yet. It is difficult to pinpoint precisely why we came away so disappointed but there was something distinctly odd about this cruise.

We are relatively experience travellers and fully accept that one must accept the rough with the smooth while traversing our glorious planet and as such find it somewhat churlish to complain when things do not always go to plan, but from the get go the cruise lacked any atmosphere. Perhaps this was due to the scheduled 20h00 departure time when most guests were either at dinner or in the grand theatre, so the usual sail away party that encourages guests to get into a party mood never effectively happened. A further contributing factor could well have been the highly diverse demographic on this cruise where passengers of the various distinct nationalities tended to stick to themselves. Of course, the strange weather we experienced on the trip did not help sailing through a major storm on the second day of the cruise and then effectively losing two days anchored either in a harbour or out at sea due to dense fog that restricted access to or egress from a couple of the ports we were scheduled to visit during the cruise.

Cabin Review

Concierge Class 2

Cabin C2

Typical Concierge class cabin. Clean and adequately equipped but in dire need of complete refurbishment. Sadly, because of the inclement weather, we could not use the balcony at all.
