We chose the cruise based on the itinerary, timing and the ship. Pleased with all 3. Dining in the Luminae was exquisite in terms of the food and wine pairings and the service. We did not dine in the main dining room On the two occasions we visited the Ocean View the food and service was excellent and friendly. We only went during port days so crowds were not an issue. The cuisine and service in the Murano were excellent. We did however feel “ rushed” to eat and move on. Not the feeling one expects when enjoying “fine” dining. The service across the ship was excellent. We only attended the guest entertainer’s shows and they were very enjoyable. The main shows were not of interest to us. The band playing in the foyer in the evening was less than enjoyable and made having a quiet pre-dinner glass of champagne in the Cellar less than enjoyable. The jazz trio was quite good. As a rule we don’t take excursions but I can say that I overheard many positive comments from other passengers relative to their experiences. The ports were enjoyable as always and one of the key reasons we chose this cruise, particularly Sitka. Overall a happy ship that we will sail on again. There were a couple of small issues 1) embarkation, disembarkation, 2) shower and 3) noise in the room Regarding the embarkation process, it was without a doubt one of the worst processes we have encountered in years of Celebrity sailings out of Canada Place. Total disorganization featuring multiple circuitous paths including floor changes and poor directions. luggage drop off was not coordinated and to get back to underground parking required leaving the facility, driving around the block and reentering. Disembarkation was better but only 2 porters were on duty and finding their coordinator was not obvious. Having cleared customs ship wide in Victoria made the process much easier. The issue of the shower and the noise are addressed below in the cabin review. In therms of the ratings below, if a topic does not have a rating it is because it is not applicable to us and we can not offer a rating. This is a shortcoming of this survey design, NA should be an option on each field.

Another excellent sailing on Celebrity

Cabin Review

Sky Suite
Cabin S2 2132
This is an accessible cabin as such the overall space and configuration were quite good. The drawbacks were 1) no curtain to separate the sleeping area from the sitting area 2) no make up room sign, only a DND available 3) rumbling noises from the Ocean View cafe. We knew this was a factor but it exceeded expectations. We would still request this room again but some might find the noise too troubling. 4) missed having maps and port info delivered to the room but the new electronic app is supposed to resolve this 5) a wonderful shower. However, because the floor is flat, we flooded the entire bathroom on first use. This was easily corrected by the room steward with a towel dam as shown in the accompanying photos. If you book this room, make certain this feature is in place on the first day.
