Our room was a veranda on deck 8. The ship has recently been refurbished and is beautiful and elegant. Our room had tons of storage space, and the bathroom was small but functional with a glass shower door, an upgraded shower head, and instant hot water every time. All the common spaces were comfortable and nicely done. It never seemed crowded, except around the pool bars.
Dining and food were good. Lots of choices for all the meals; snacks and desserts throughout the day. We tried the specialty restaurant, Tuscan Grill, which was very good, but the dining room food was just as good. The buffet was well laid out, with many stations and lots of choices. Waiters circulated with fresh pastries and coffee in the morning, and easy to get drinks at lunch. Bars and drinks were plentiful. Our favorite was the Martini Bar with the frosted counter. Only complaint was lack of waiters around the pool areas - we saw only one on our day at sea. The pool bars were ridiculously crowded and took forever. We were told they were short-staffed, and it showed here and in the shops.
Entertainment wasn't great, the production shows were dated and no great dance bands. But there was a lot of other options, such as the silent disco, the 80's party, and a huge deck party. There were game shows, movies on the upper deck, and a pretty good comedian.
This was an elegant, classy cruise without the need to dress up. It is not the right choice for people who like hairy chest competitions and singing/dancing waiters. There was nobody trying to sell us "drinks of the day" or pushing any product on us - so refreshing. We loved it.

Culinary TourCooking Caribbean with Daria. Has another name through Celebrity. Wonderful experience at her house way up on a hill. Everyone participated and then ate a great lunch. Sipped 5 different infused rums, and learned all about the herbs and vegetables grown in the area. Lots of fun.View All 10 Culinary Tour Reviews
GrenadaFort was interesting and views were great. Beach was secluded. Came with a snack and a drink. Could rent a lounge chair for $6. Stayed for 2 hours, which was the perfect amount of time that day.View All 639 Grenada Cruise Port Reviews
