We were traveling with friends and my friend found the cruise. We had traveled on Celebrity before so we decided to go. We were concerned about the number of sea days but that was never a problem. There was plenty to do onboard. The staff was excellent from our room steward, Pablo, to the servers in the dining room and specialty restaurants. The entertainment was the best of any cruise we have taken. We love the live music and the shows. The ship’s public areas were spotless. The only problem we encountered was disembarking at ports. The wait was ridiculous with long lines waiting in hot corridors. There also was too little help for handicapped people getting on buses. Overall it was a great time. I would recommend it wholeheartedly. The food was very good especially in Murano’s specialty restaurant. Quisine was different and the food better than expected. It is more of a novelty restaurant.
The cabin was very nice, however, I did not think it had enough storage. Some luggage did not fit under the bed.
Trip to Montserrat and a winery. It was organized by someone on our cruise. It was excellent. Thanks Anne.
The traffic in Rio is horrible. It is not stop and go it is just stop. It really takes the fun out of the tours. Christ the Redeemer is impressive. I’m just not sure it is worth the hassle.
