Sail Date: Jun 2019
Cabin: Deluxe Veranda 2B

Embarkation went very smoothly, as we had an assigned time to board the ship, and the process was very automated. Out luggage arrived before we sailed, and we were able to start unpacking.

The layout of the public spaces on the ship was very good, and you never got the feeling of how large the ship actually is because the spaces are broken up with no long corridors in public areas.

My wife and I have cruised over 30+ times, and with most of the cruise lines. We have been on several Celebrity cruises, and in the past found them to be good experiences. But the quality of Celebrity has gone down hill. My biggest complaint is that their Beverage Package is overpriced, and it's hard to find someone to take your order, so you end up going to the bar to get served. Consequently, you cant't get enough drinks during the day to even break even on the cost of the beverage package. There is inadequate serving staff in the bars, so Celebrity makes a great profit on the bars.

Cabin Review

Deluxe Veranda 2B

Cabin 2B

There is wasted space in the closet. There's too much room for hanging clothes, which could be better utilized with a little more shelving. We had a veranda, and we spent a lot of time out there reading, especially on days at sea. Areas of the ship were refurbished in May 2019, and the bedding in the cabins were redone and comfortable.
