We are loyal to Celebrity, have been on 17 long cruises and until this one have always been happy with Celebrity. Our air arrangements (Choice Air) booked directly with Celebrity were a nightmare. What should have been no more than 4 or 5 hours turned out to be closer to 14 hours. If it had been weather related we would have accepted it but when we booked the air we were not given a choice of arrangements, we had to go with AA which was very bad. Due to a problem with the first leg of the flight they (AA) bounced us all over the place and refused to change to another airline. Instead of possibly booking us with another airline they squeezed us in the last row (no windows) and directly across from the lavatories. It was miserable. We spent many hours between flights. We had left our hotel in Manchester, NH at 6:30 am for a 8:45 flight which should have got us to FLL mid afternoon. We had to take a ride to Boston (80mph) to take a flight to Miami (not Ft. Lauderdale) and arrived at out hotel there after 9pm. My advice is not to trust Guaranteed flights by Celebrity. The ship itself is lovely as are all ships in this category. The meals in the main dining room were for the most part very much like what I remember at the school cafeteria. Small (measly) amounts of less than prime cuts. A lot of cheap cuts and sometimes tiny amounts. They were nothing like we have enjoyed even since 5 months ago. We had a good amount of cabin credit and used it to book 3 ship tours. St. Martin Beach and lunch was awful, Magens Bay was pretty but very crowded and the last one to Nevis on a catamaran was the best tour we've had in the Caribbean in years. We would book it again in a heartbeat. The service on the ship was great and we like almost all the shows. The ship is very nice. Our main complaints were about the air arrangements and the less than satisfying meals,

Not the Celebrity we have loved
