Sail Date: Oct 2019
Cabin: Ocean View 4

We chose this cruise to accompany some friends who were newbies to cruising and as it visited islands we had never been to. The price was good too! We had sailed on Summit previously and all its sister ships as well as some Solstice class. Sailing out of Puerto Rico was fine but getting there from the U.K. is a bit of a hassle. It would have been preferable to go from somewhere in Florida. The hops between the islands were so short we wondered why sail away on most days was 4.30pm?

Service was the usual high standard, lovely food, well maintained cabin. Good entertainment. We chose not use any of the ships shore excursions and used the locals which were incredibly cheap, average of $20 a person for an island tour and on all these seem to be licensed by the islands tourist authorities. No problems and great fun with the local knowledge. We chose not to do the beach stops which were offered, but the driver/guides offer to come back and fellow passengers got back to the ship on time so they were good for their word.

Celebrity have modernised the embarkation system and its excellent. Provided you have your express pass you just drop your luggage, record your pass on a scanner and straight on. You are then able to go straight to the cabin drop your carry on and collect your sea pass which is waiting for you. Disembarkation was also very easy. We used the ships bus transfer to the airport which was very well organised.

Cabin Review

Ocean View 4

This cabin is right at the front (below the captains quarters) and is much larger than the normal Oceanview, so if you don’t mind the long walk to the Cosmopolitan dining room it’s great. Very comfortable bed, good shower in the upgraded bathroom.
