I choose the cruise for the destination. The ship too my surprise was 29 years old and showed it. My Gripes are as follows: 1. The cost of the drinks package are a complete rip off an extra $600 for a non alcohol package or $1800 for alcohol (about 25% of cruise cost). 2 Entertainment was third grade and boring. Sound in the theater was not up to standard 3. They used to let you watch movies in the room for free now its $15 plus there was simply nothing too watch 4. They even want you to pay for a tour of the ships Kitchen 5. There were 5 sea days and if I tell you there was simply nothing to do. They had 2 lecturers on board who were not even that good. In other words the lecture rooms were empty most of the day. What the ship thinks is an activity is playing ping pong. 6. In this day an age to charge $500 for internet access is a "crime". You can get that for a year in any country. 7 When you travel in Asia or middle east the price for an excursion is about 5 times what you will pay instead of using one of the locals who are in abundance outside the docks 8. Food: We dined second session and the food mostly was adequate but frequently arrived cold. The buffet was not sub standard. Fruit was either over ripe or simply not there. Salads were boring and often at breakfast there was a choice of one cold meat or cheese. Also not everyone eats pork products. (I noticed flies buzzing around the food area). The drinks waiters in the buffet area had limited knowledge of English and frequently could not understand a simple drinks order

Celebrity nows charges extra for everything
