After a wonderful cruise to the Baltic on Silhouette we turned to Celebrity for Christmas and New Year and found the India and Emirates cruise, which we booked with great anticipation. What a disappointment, the ship, not the itinerary. Not enough storage space in cabin, cases would not fit under the bed, seal strips kept coming off the shower door, the balcony, deck nine had a massive overhang from deck ten which was the pool deck, so there was constant noise and running footsteps, even in the cabin we had youngsters running up and down the corridor, this is not something we expect in an Aqua Class cabin. There was no adult only area on the pool deck which meant we had constant loud music and shouting, the sunbeds were rammed so close together,(if an empty one could be found) one could have mistaken the deck for a Riviera beach. Celebrity advertise that they cater for low sugar, which l might add is a medical requirement, not a lifestyle choice, no evidence in the Oceanview restaurant of low sugar. infact the organisation in their was very poor on the whole. Afternoon tea consisted of Pizza or Pasta until the last day when miraculously sandwiches appeared and much to my husbands delight scones. We book Aqua class because we love the Blu restaurant, l was delighted to see a low sugar desert option which l ordered, what a mistake, there is certainly a lack of understanding with the chefs on what low sugar actually means, luckily for me our waiters and Maitre d were so concerned that the problem was soon corrected. I was asked for some examples and every night l was provided with a delicious desert. Special thanks to Avan for actually buying me some low sugar sweets when we were in India. The staff on board were always very helpful and polite, things are not always the fault of the actual staff. Sometimes l have mobility difficulty, l couldnt have wished for more help. Our excursions were a mixture, Mumbai was something we would not have missed, a unique experience. On the whole Christmas and New Year on the ship was disappointing, not the fault of the staff. Come on Celebrity stop resting on your laurels, we are looking at other cruise lines.

Constellation - The only star for this ship was the Blu restaurant

After a wonderful cruise to the Baltic on Silhouette we turned to Celebrity for Christmas and New Year and found the India and Emirates cruise, which we booked with great anticipation.

What a disappointment, the ship, not the itinerary.

Not enough storage space in cabin, cases would not fit under the bed, seal strips kept coming off the shower door, the balcony, deck nine had a massive overhang from deck ten which was the pool deck, so there was constant noise and running footsteps, even in the cabin we had youngsters running up and down the corridor, this is not something we expect in an Aqua Class cabin. There was no adult only area on the pool deck which meant we had constant loud music and shouting, the sunbeds were rammed so close together,(if an empty one could be found) one could have mistaken the deck for a Riviera beach.

Cabin Review

Aqua Class Balcony
Cabin A2 9265
Aqua Class costs more, Silhouette was wonderful, Constellation a big disappointment.
Not enough storage, bathroom tired, cabin noisy, also noise from staff working areas opposite. Do not choose a cabin which looks to have a blank wall facing, as in there is where they bring all the laundry, cleaning equipment etc.
Deck 9 Inside Cabins, Outside Cabins, Balcony Cabins, Suite Cabins
