This was our first time on Celebrity. We choose this cruise because of the itinerary, repositioning cruise up the West Coast. We flew into San Diego and spent a few days there, and then a few days in Vancouver at the end of the cruise. Embarkation and disembarkation were fine/typical. The ship is beautiful, the clientele a little older. We were among the youngest at 54. We loved the suspended tree, library, Team Earth space.
I have to mention (as if Celebrity will see this review), for the muster, people are not interested in watching a cheesy video on how to put on a life vest. What should've taken 5 minutes took more like 20 because of the video, which we didn't even watch (we listened, tho) because the video screen for our section was broken. Skip the gimmicks and let us get back to our cruise!
The Cruise Director Alejandro and "Super Captain" Leo were outstanding. When we couldn't drop the tenders for transport into Monterey, "Super Captain" Leo got us a spot in San Francisco, so we could spend two nights in San Fran instead of another sea day.
The cabin was great. We were the first cabin on the bump out and had a bigger balcony. Not as big as I was expecting but then realized the cabins further out on the bump out would have bigger balconies, but ours was fine. The cabin has a ton of storage, some of which we didn't even find until after we were unpacked (there are cabinets above the bed!). Lots of storage in the bathroom. Bathroom is a really good size. Shower was a good size. Overall a great cabin!
We went on the winery tour - very good!
