Sail Date: April 2010
Destination: Europe - British Isles & Western
Embarkation: Southampton
Inaugural cruise?? Absolutely nothing on board to celebrate this (apart from glass coasters left in room). Captain very ellusive, VERY brief tannoy announcments rarely, no introductary / welcome meet with the crew, totally different from the captain on the Solstice last November who was very 'passenger friendly'. Cruise director reminded us that we were 'only on for 4 days' at every opportunity, as if we didn't actually count as paying guests.

Expected the solarium to be an adults only area, unfortunatly not! Not only were children very much present, there were babies in nappies in the pool and jacuzzis. Come on Celebrity-adults like their own space too! Beautiful area, but crowded a lot on this trip (weather not good enough for on deck lounging)

Cabin very comfortable. No noise, despite being beside lifts + stairway.

Enjoyed the food in buffet (especially the salads),a bit limited choice for evening dining. MDR experience good. Room service exactly as More requested. Bar prices high.

Entertainment was very good, (a comedian would have been appreciated).

Embarkation and disembarkation excellent.

Overall, a beautiful ship, good service, worth the £340 each. Will use Celebrity again. Less
