At Manhattan Terminal, the Embarkation staffs are rude and shouting to the senior guests, this is the worst Embarkation experience have ever experienced for 25 years Cruse vacation. Free Dining: (1) Bamboo (Deck 7): Bamboo is the best ship's restaurant. Recommend menu items: appetizers (pot stickers and spring rolls), soups ( egg drop), mains (kung pao chicken, vegetarian fried rice), BBQ Pork noodle soup and desserts (coconut tapioca pudding, crispy chestnut and red bean triangles). (2) Main Dining Rooms: Venetian and Aqua (Deck 6): Prefer Venetian for comfortable seating and better services. Aqua has more crowded sitting. The Best Cruise Director and programs: the best Show “Elements”, the best Vocalist Jenene Caramielo, Jose & Patti@ Grand Atrium. Balcony Room class BB @ 10/FL Mid-ship is a little quieter than Class BA @9/FL mid-ship. The Room layout is not good to use. The storage has only 3 drawers. 1/3 Inside cabins (353) crowded the Buffet and public area. The TV is very small. The Buffet area are always crowded and food quality is so so. The Movies at Bliss room has poor quality and sitting.

Good food, shows, but NOT the Balcony rooms layout. 1/3 Inside cabins crowded

Cabin Review

Mid-Ship Balcony
Cabin BA
very poor layout design and face-to-face to inside cabins doors are crowded always. only 3 drawers available for use. The inside Closet cubes are useless with Luggage. The Celebrity Summit hsa much more better design for the same refurbished old ship.
Deck 11 Inside Cabins, Balcony Cabins, Suite Cabins
