We chose the cruise for the itinerary and Celebrity because we prefer them. We expected cooler, cloudier and less sunny weather but after the first cloudy day at sea we were blessed with clear almost cloudless skies, warm temperatures, no rain and wonderful scenery. Our stateroom was as expected and we had an excellent steward who seemed to second guess our needs. The stateroom was always spotlessly clean and well serviced. We don't care for the appetisers delivered to the room so cancelled them after re-trying them for a couple of days....we thought they might have improved...but no. The appetisers in the Sky lounge before dinner were much nicer. We couldn't fault the itinerary. the weather helped. We chose not to do any Celebrity organised tours as we are quite willing to walk and explore and had never been to any of the ports of call before. So easy just to get off the ship and walk either on the level, to viewpoints, alongside waterfalls through countryside etc. We ate once in Tuscan, on the first night, when there are usually discounts. The food was very good as usual. We chose to book to go to the special "Tuscan Night Out" towards the end of the cruise, which was priced at almost twice the normal price of the normal Tuscan cover charge and promised to be something special...special food cooked by the chef with wines to match. 50 people only and accompanied by a senior member of the ships crew on each table. This proved to be incorrect. The menu was a truncated version of the normal Tuscan menu with the addition of lobster ( which we had had in the main dining room the night before) and the "wines" offered were available on the classic drinks package.... we already had this. The service was not up to scratch and the tables were badly organised. We complained after the meal to Guest Relations and the next day the Maitre'D of Tuscan personally dealt with our complaint to our satisfaction. Celebrity do need to re-think this option. This was the only thing to marr a perfect holiday. I woke up one morning at 4a.m and couldn't resist looking outside. The scenery was breathtaking. After taking photos and a video I had to make myself go back to bed and ignore the wonderful scenery as we glided through the fjord....I would have been shattered the next day if I hadn't Approaching Geiranger the captain turned the ship through 360 degrees so all those positioned on any vantage point could see the Seven Sisters Waterfall and the equally impressive waterfall opposite it. We were simply spoilt with the scenery and became quite blazé on seeing yet another waterfall. I was constantly taking photos because the scenery was so photogenic. The ports had easy access for all.

Excellent cruise and Itinerary
