5th time on Celebrity and again we had a great time. We used all the fitness facilities and the Persian Garden- highly recommend. We ate mostly in the Opus dining room for bfast and dinner and absolutely have no complaints. We ate in the Spa Cafe for a light lunch and it was perfect. We tried the Petit Chef (specialty-$110 a couple) experience and found it to be the worst of our dinners on ship. The animation was cute but the quality of food fell below average. We loved the silent disco and danced for 2 hrs each time they had it! What a great workout that was! Disclaimer: we are not your average cruiser, we cruise once a year only in Nov and Dec to check out the ports so that if we like them we can come back properly by air.
St. Martin- did a 6 hr excursion with Sualiga Destinations- would not recommend. Stuck up- rude Captain- Anthony, ride from hell, nothing to see. Lied to a friend of ours who is 65 years old with bad back. Her back was absolutely bruised!!! Dishonest and most overpriced boat ride I have ever been on and that is coming from someone who visited 60 countries and owns a boat!
San Juan- absolutely beautiful, vibrant old town. Walked to the La Factoria- where Despasito was filmed and then to Taberna De Lupulo. Joined a street salsa party- no tourists only Latin people. Had a blast and will definately come back via air and rent a car for 2 weeks.
Antigua- took a snorkeling excursion through the ship with Wadadli Cats (3 hrs)- this was just awesome! Fun crew, friendly, hospitable and just normal people!!! Paradise reef was great for snorkeling- just go away from the crowd and follow the reef, if you are a strong swimmer you will be able to see a lot! Stopped by a pristine beach, too. Drinks and sandwiches were provided. I highly recommend this one!!!
Will definately come back by air. Friendly people, great cafes, Latin vibe. Felt like a part of community, not a tourist. Walk away from the trinket stores and tourist cafes. Research on Tripadvisor where to go and even with limited Spanish you will have a great time!!!
Just horrid. A boat ride from hell with a stuck up unfriendly Captain- Anthony. I will dispute my CC charges on this one for sure. What a bunch of crooks!!! Lied to an elderly lady and took advantage of her.View All 151 Snorkeling Reviews
