We wanted to cruise southeast Asia and this ship has several big pros, ship updated, great itinerary, good value and BLU.
If you are a foodie who wants a small ship dining experience Blu is excellent, made all the difference for us and we would never cruise Celebrity without it. You need to upgrade to aqua class but well worth it. Both service, food and ambience are much better.
Unfortunately, the upgrades to the ship caused some issues, our shower leaked onto the bathroom floor for the entire cruise, Celebrity tried to fix but not 100%. New decor was generally good and made the cabin space bigger.
Crew on the ship was very good, especially Sebastian in Blu and our cabin attendant Narish. Cruise director was so so.
If you’re focus is to see Thailand this isn’t the right cruise, terminal was 2.5 hours from Bangkok, nearer Pattaya which is a dump. But the rest is very good. Hong Kong and Singapore are excellent and docks close to town.
Celebrity has decided to make playing Bridge difficult for some unknown reason. So visit forums to find players and bring your own bidding boxes and cards. We had a lot of sea days and thankfully found bridge partners, without any help from Celebrity.
Lastly bring your cold flu remedies as these long haul winter cruises tend to have illnesses onboard. Celebrity does what they can to sanitize but I will stay clear of the buffet in the future.
