We were keen to visit many of the Baltic destinations and Celebrity Cruises had been recommended to us by friends. The ship was excellent and certainly met the vast majority of our needs. All of the staff were extremely attentive and the service was excellent across the ship. Our experience in the main dining room was also excellent with an extensive and impressive range of menu options. The Ocean View cafe was also generally very good though it was often overcrowded. Other cafes and bars generally offered a very good service. Live entertainment was of a very good standard and the evening shows were all teriific. We particularly enjoyed all of the live music which was on offer throught the day. We also enjoyed the talks given by guest lectureres and the Cruise Director. We enjoy ballroom dancing and it was good to be given the opportunity to do this each evening. It would have been better though if the times could have varied a bit more to avoid clashing with our alloted dinner sitting. It would also have been a good experience to have had live music provided at least once for this purpose. The highlight for us were the ports and shore experiences. We used the shore excursions several times in Bruges and St Petersburg and these were very well organised. Disembarking and re-embarking was a straightforward process each time. There was though, I felt, a shambolic service at times from the shore excursions desk in that it was extremely undermanned at key times and a lack of clear information about where to pick up the correct shuttle / hop on hop off bus tickets. As a first cruise expereince this was excellent for both of us. We are certainly considering cruising again in the near future.

Incredible first cruise experience!

The cabin was sufficiently spacious and adequately met our needs. It was clean and well maintained.
