Sail Date: Jun 2018
Cabin: Concierge Class 2

Our third cruise overall and second on Celebrity. We booked this through Planet Cruise after they had one hell of a deal on an inside cabin that we couldn't miss out on. As a bonus, they phoned up 72 hours before we left and offered us an upgrade to Concierge for absolute buttons so we ended up on Deck 12 (room 2142) with all the trimmings. Downside of the room - its under the Oceanview Cafe, so there was some noise from above as trolleys were wheeled in. This could have been annoying but we had such a good deal that you couldn't really complain.

Bruges - Took the Half-Day on your own Tour. In hindsight, an expensive Shuttle Bus. Being a Sunday, pretty much everything was shut until 10am, we were in town for 8am ish and leaving at 12am. However, the quietness gave us lots of chance to take some good photos of a stunningly beautiful city. Once things opened up, it got very busy indeed.

Copenhagen - Hop on Hop Off Bus as we have been there before, so we had a couple of places to tick off. First was the Skagen shop to get watches repaired and buy new ones. (Between my wife and I we have 8 Skagens. My only weakness.) Then into Nyhavn for a boat tour, before food. Celebrity were handing out 20% wristbands at a particular place - can't remember the name but it begins with F. Anyway, the food there was well worth it.

Cabin Review

Concierge Class 2

Cabin C2

Always clean, very good service. Incredibly comfy bed. Seemed slightly bigger than our last time in Concierge on Millennium. Under the Oceanview Cafe, so there is noise from maintenance, or trolleys being wheeled in (not from people though). On the balcony, there is the Oceanview overhang so it is not a perfect view at all. But we got a very cheap upgrade, so I'm not complaining.

Port Reviews

Brugge (Bruges)

Brief, but gorgeous place to walk around.

Tallinn

Small, but perfectly formed. Old Town is beautiful, if a little overloaded with tourist shops.

Stockholm

Loved it. Spectacularly pretty Old Town. If you feel like something different, buy a 24hr transport ticket and ride the underground. Each station is decorated differently and some of the artwork is incredible.
