Sail Date: Feb 2019

We have previously sailed on Celebrity and enjoyed the upmarket ambiance and cultured environment BUT alas this seems to have been eroded into what has become a very ordinary cruise line.

The harassment we experienced form staff as soon as we boarded to 'purchase a package' was beyond annoying. On no less than 45 occasions we were asked to purchase on day one. This continued for 3 days and on one occasion I was even challenged to explain why I did not want to buy a 'package' .. by a wine waiter.

After declining to purchase a package we then found it literally impossible to get served on deck and in the theatre unles we were standing at a bar.

Cabin Review

Concierge Class 1

Cabin C1

The cabin was maintained well by the steward. The balcony furniture was 'tatty'
