We booked this cruise for the exciting itinerary. We were concerned after reading some previous reviews that the ship would disappoint. We kept out expectations realistic and were very pleasantly surprised. We loved the layout of the ship. We have been on 10 cruises and we prefer the older style ships as we feel they offer more space and a lovely relaxed feel. The food was very good at all the restaurants. Although we had access to Blu with our cabin class we chose to dine at San Marco every night with the rest of our family and loved the atmosphere and food quality. We enjoyed the shows and the variety of entertainment and we loved the outdoor cinema. We were very happy with our cabins and found the storage to be more then other ships.
The crew were fantastic! Its amazing how they turn up each day with so much enthusiasm and energy for their jobs. Well done to Celebrity for creating, from what we could see, a strong crew morale.
Our recommendations would be to keep your expectations realistic and you'll probably be pleasantly surprised. How could we complain over spending two weeks being totally waited on and entertained?
Nice cabin. Plenty of space and nice shower. There is an overhang on the verandah which is not a problem in hot climates as it provides shade.
