My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed this cruise BUT we did not like the ship for the following reasons:- 1) It is far too modern 2) There are a lot of dark rooms that look quite depressing. 3) We did not like the fixed dining room - unlike Solstice class there are 4 almost identical dining rooms instead of the 3 floor Dining and you are allotted one of them, you can get a seat in any of the other 3 if you take a pager and wait but they are all very similar with dark décor and soft lighting. 4) Because of the above (3) you are seated in rows and that means you almost positively have to talk to the people next to you and even if you don't they can hear your conversations. So, no privacy if you have booked a table for 2 as we do. 5) The Martini bar has been dumped in the middle of the Grand Plaza which is such a shame as that is normally our favourite bar. Also at night it is not at all like the other Celebrity ships as you cannot sit all the way around it, only 3/4 of the way and again it is very badly lit. 6) When you are on the pool deck and you here the group singing it will take you a while to find where they are - they are hidden behind a glass balcony to the left and slightly above the pool bar!!!! Why hide them?? 7) No sail away parties, we love a good sail away with a cocktail but we tended to be 2 of the very few on deck when that happened. The great things about this ship were the staff, the food and the entertainment and the rather large pool - plus the 2 shore excursions we did were excellent!

Cabin Review

Deluxe Ocean View Stateroom with Veranda
Cabin 1A
Loved the cabin, although a little narrower it had the most comfortable bed with massive tv (although not able to get much on it that was not American!). The most amazing bathroom with proper door on the shower and plenty of room. Wardrobes were in a better place so that you could open both the bathroom and the cupboard doors at the same time.
