We’re currently on day #5 of a 7-night cruise. We were drawn to this ship by on-line videos that feature its modern design. The ship delivers, mostly. We booked a Sky Suite this time, which gave us nice perks (more on that below.) Embarkation is perfect. We went from bus to cabin in less than 10-minutes. Our suite is large. The bathroom is really spacious. There’s plenty of storage space in this class. The bed is really comfortable. The cabin is quiet. Food is excellent. In fact, it’ll be hard to settle for a land-based restaurant when we get home. The staff we encountered were friendly, polite and very gracious. Celebrity’s training really pays off. Entertainment is as good as we’ve seen elsewhere. ‘The Edge’ restaurant is a great experience. Ditto, ‘The Petite Chef.’ I had the best Veal Chop I’ve ever had at ‘Fine Cut.’ Suite Class gives you access to ‘The Retreat,’ a large (and mostly unused) lounge. There’s also a pool and sun deck for the exclusive use of those in Suite Class. There’s also a spa, which we didn’t use. Suite Class passengers get a ‘butler.’ Ours was gracious, but we didn’t require much of him, other than keeping our mini-fridge stocked with Diet Coke. There are a few (relative) negatives.You’ll find no fresh cut flowers in public spaces (something we enjoyed on Holland America) and the decor is ‘modern urban.’ You won’t mistake this ship for one of the glamorous legacy cruise ships. Surfaces are laminates. There’s no pretense at real ‘wood.’ The theatre is too small for the number of passengers. As a Suite Class passenger, you’ll get reserved seating. Hardly egalitarian, but appreciated, none the less. Although designed to appeal to 40-somethings, our cruise was loaded with ‘senior-seniors.’ Lots of walkers and scooters. For every passenger in their 20’s, there were 10 in their 80’s. Bottom line: different, in a good way. But now that I’ve done that, I’ll try another Celebrity ship.

Modern take attracts traditional crusiers

Cabin Review

Sky Suite
Cabin S3 10195
Spacious. You won’t ‘bump’ into your cabin mate while moving about. The bathroom is large. No “phone booth’ shower here!
