This is my 8th cruise, I have previously sailed with Royal Caribbean, Princess and Holland America. This was my first time with Celebrity and it did not disappoint - definitely the best ship yet.
We departed from Fort Lauderdale, although we flew to Miami as it was easier and cheaper coming from the UK. we spent one night on south beach, which I would recommend experiencing, but a night is enough to see it all.
Embarkation was a breeze - when we arrived someone was there to take our bags from the taxi, and now they have facial recognition machines upon arrival which automatically checks you in, and took about 30 seconds. We then sat down and waited for embarkation to begin (we got to the port a little early), in Celebrity’s own terminal which was new and had plenty of seats.
