We chose this cruise because of the itenerary which included Cartagena, Panama and Costa Rica which we had never visited. Our cabin was fine size for us with ample storage space, having learned from previous trips to be a bit more practical in packing. Our steward, Francisco, was always available and took really good care of us and the cabin. We usually ate in the main dining room and the service and the food were excellent, especially the tournedos. We had breakfast in the buffet with good variety and quality available. We went to the show each night after dinner and enjoyed every performance, especially Ashley Amber who has a fantastic voice and puts on a really great show. She was our muster leader on Summit a few tears ago and has come a long way. On previous Celebrity cruises we enjoyed a glass of Bailey’s after dinner with our coffee so on the first night we did the same only to be charged a dollar each overage which I thought really petty. It was always included in the classic package but they now charge ten dollars for a glass. It cost twenty five dollars for a litre bottle in their duty free shop. We did excursions on most stops but were really surprised at how untidy Costa Rica is. Considering how it prides itself on it’s biodiversity and respect for the environment, there was so much garbage like beer bottles and plastic lying on the beaches. Maybe we picked a bad day. We had a great excursion in Cozumel called Salsa, salsa and margaritas. It was a lot of fun and probably one of the best days of the cruise. Embarkation was a bit slow but disembarking was a breeze. What a difference from Miami. All in all it was a great cruise and we will be cruising again with Celebrity.

South America, The Caribbean and salsa, salsa and margaritas.
