Sail Date: Nov 2018
Cabin: Deluxe Ocean View with Balcony 2A

We went for this cruise for the itinerary. Had not sailed with Celebrity before but reviews were generally good. We were disappointed. Most cruise lines want to extract your cash but Celebrity take this to another level. Definitely not to the standard of Princess or Cunard.

Their entertainment programme, especially for five consecutive sea days was very thin. Not everyone wants to lie on a sun bed all day.

Their customer service is appalling; once we arrived in Abu Dhabi for a two day stop over diesel tankers directly below our stateroom were refuelling all night, both nights. When we complained we were told it was out of their hands although after much pressure from us they moved us on the second night. Never, ever again. There are much better cruise lines out there that won't cost you as much.

Cabin Review

Deluxe Ocean View with Balcony 2A

Cabin 2A

Cabin was poky. A sofa was included but was only large enough to seat one person comfortably, the other person had to sit on the bed.

Toiletries pack was abysmal, had to request a shower cap which had to last two weeks. Robes provided looked well worn, not nice fluffy ones you get on other cruise lines with a similar pricing structure.

Aqaba (Petra)

Good tour with very knowledgeable guide.

Athens (Piraeus)

Souk quite easy to walk to.

Can see a lot of the city easily.
