To begin with the positives, We enjoyed some parts of the cruise, it was a 11 night cruise and the ports, excursions and dining staff were fantastic. However, our last night we encountered horrible weather and had to dock in La Spezia missing our last two ports. Our ship broke the moorings on the dock and drifted away in the wind causing it to bump into the neighboring ship. Our family was very disappointed that there was no warning before the collision or any information shared with passengers that the ship had broke from the dock. No one was injured but that was just lucky because it could have been a bad collision and notice should be given immediately when that is happening. We then had to leave in the middle of the night by bus to go to Rome. Weather can always occur but we were very disappointed in the lack of communication from the Celebrity officers. Also, we have two small children and one should know that this ship does not have many young family amenities. The indoor pool is adult only and the outdoor pool is not heated so we had no pool to use when it got chilly. There is a kids room upstairs on deck 11. Overall it caters to older adults.

Ship collided with another ship in dock, crew failed to give warning

Cabin Review

Deluxe Ocean View with Balcony 2A
Cabin 2A
The cabin is nice, the pullout bed is just for a single person, our four old fit in but may not fit adults very well.
