2nd time on this ship, did a Caribbean back in 2013 when she was new. After trying pretty much all cruise lines, I liked Celebrity the best. Still good, but they are definitely cutting some more corners from the last time we used them. We sailed Aqua Class balcony. Ship was clean, and beautiful! Staff was great for the most part. Embarcation in Civitavecchia was very fast. Arrived at 1pm and were on board in less than 15 minutes. Cabin was ready. Our steward Sherwin did a fantastic job! The lawn is just a waste of space. Celebrity should look into better use for these areas! Enjoyed the Persian Gardens most days. Had some nice canapes delivered. Nice little treats... Blu dining was just OK, hit and miss menu. A few service problems 1st day breakfast which were pointed out to the maitre dee. The staff worked hard to make sure we were satisfied after that. Specialty dining: Qsine was a big disappointment! Loved the old small plated format, new deal is lame. Video projector on a plate is not really that interesting, and a fixed menu! Skip it! Tuscan Grille, just OK nothing really special. Nice view of the sun set by the transom windows. Murano: Awesome service, venue and food. Well worth it! Should of used our 3 meal package all in this joint! Beverages: Upgraded to premium package. Glad we did. Shout out to the Mast bar crew Iputu, Igung and Borris. Great service a lots of laughs with these characters! Spent a lot of time up in that area. Café al Bacio had great coffee and fast service! Activities were lacking. Not a lot for such a nice big ship. Entertainment: Lame or no music by the pool at times. Pick it up! Only caught a couple of shows. They were Ok. Loved the Freddie Mercury guy! Excursions: Booked everything off the ship. Much better deals. Hop on Hop off busses are a great way to get around! Itinerary was great! Arrived in Rome a day early to see some sights. Wish we would of arrived 2 days early! So much to see. Very busy cruise. Went to bed early a few nights after the sight seeing all day. Malta is very interesting, but the ship stopped on Sunday when most things are closed. Loved the ports in Greece. Mykonos was my favorite. Santorini is beautiful but too crowded! Loved Pompei! Amazing place.

Cabin Review

AquaClass
Cabin A2 1647
Cabin had plenty of storage as was well laid out. Nice deep balcony was very roomy! Foot stools are a nice touch. Well thought out bathroom with plenty of storage space. The Germans did a good job on these cabins. Our steward Sherwin was unobtrusive and did a fantastic job!
