We enjoyed our short 4 days cruise to Key West & Nassau. This was our Second cruise with Celebrity. Our first was on the Equinox. We find Celebrity ships are classy looking and well appointed. The buffet area is wide and un-congested, with items icely spread out buffet. Customer service in Infinity was top notch as well, whether in the dining room, pools area or on board shops.
We had a smooth experience with embarkation and debarkation.
We had a nice balcony room on this ship, without any of the Aqua or other class upgrades. Our room steward Ashraf was great with his information and anticipating our needs. Our room was always maintained in immaculate condition!
We never had an issue getting chairs around the pool..unless you showed up mid-afternoon.
Celebrity offers buckets of beer specials as well..6 Beers for $25/= with Gratuities.
Onboard entertainment was good - We had Comedian Steve Bruner one night..very funny guy!
As this was our Second cruise with Celebrity, we received an invite to the Captains Club event in the Constellation lounge with basically an open bar and some appy's. The Captain and his crew was there and recognized loyal Celebrity guests - One couple were on their 160th Cruise!!!
Overall, a very enjoyable cruise on Celebrity. We are looking forward to our next cruise with them.
We found this room to be very spacious. Bathroom was a bit bigger than most we've had on other ships. Room has basic plug ins - No USB ports, so you would need an extension bar if you have many gadgets to charge.
Our 3rd time at this beautiful and picturesque port. We walked Duval Street and rode the Free Trolley bus to get a quick look at the town. We then spent some time around the Seaport Marina area, which has many excellent restaurants.
There is a CVS Drugstore for re-stocking supplies and also a Starbucks not far from the cruise centre for your WIFI fix.
Our 3rd time at this port as well. There is NO WIFI at the Cruise Centre, but lots at surrounding bars & restaurants. We have done a self tour previously of Nassau. Its a very underwhelming port..Street signs missing, Dilapidated buildings...Etc.
Your choices realistically are 1) Take a Taxi or Water taxi to Paradise Island to tour the Atlantis Resort or 2) Spend time at the public beach there called Cabbage Beach..or 3)We walked to the right after leaving the cruise port and spent the day at Junkanoo Beach, which was about a 10 Minute walk. There is a liquor store called 700 Wines and Liquor at the corner of Bay & Marlborough Streets, where you can get 3 Kalick beers for $6/=!
At the beach, we went a bit further down by the pier to Glorias Bach Hut and paid $20/= for 2 lounge chairs and umbrellas. A nice Beach to spend the day away on.
You can see your ship from the this beach and it's visible from the Starboard (Right) side as your ship comes into the Harbour pas the lighthouse. There is a massive resort being constructed just adjacent to the beach.
