We chose the cruise due to the ports and good deals. I like to snorkel so Grand Caymen and Key West were on my bucket list. We have cruised on Royal C. and NCL previously. There are some things we really liked about Celebrity and some not so much. Embarkation and disembarkation were amazingly quick. We were on the boat within 20 minutes and off in the same timeframe. We loved the buffet, much better than NCL. We didn't like the evening dining as much as the other two cruise ships, and you can't beat NCL specialty dining included. We did pay for Tuscan Grille but it was not as good as NCL steakhouse. We didn't like the fact you had to pick either 6 p..m. or 8 p.m as evening times to dine. A couple of nights we were really rushed to get to the 6 p.m. We didn't like the two formal nights as much as NCL freestyle. The pool entertainment seemed a bit lacking, not as many things going on, a more conservative setting for sure compared to other cruises. The entertainment was good and you could just walk in to the theatre which was nice. Bars were quick to serve us. Service was good the housekeeping was amazing. I would cruise with them again for sure!

Great Cruise

Cabin Review

Sunset Veranda
Cabin SV
The cabin was spacious enough. I liked the fact that they give you toiletries twice daily for showers not the pump on the wall. The shower seemed a bit larger than other cruise ships. Balcony had nice chairs with high backs more like a lounger.

Port & Shore Excursion Reviews

  • Snorkeling
    Had an independent snorkel trip with a personal guide. Saw lots of stingrays, turtles barracudas, the very best snorkelling on our trip. Interesting because last time we went we didn't see anything on the reef. This was a small Padi certified instructor.

  • Stingray Swim
    Stingray City was a must-see. You get to hold, kiss and feed giant stingrays! Then we had a great snorkelling spot with more stingrays and variety of fish!
