Leaving cold, snow and sleet for a warm vacation seemed like a good idea. A day or so after leaving home our area was smacked with a Nor'easter.
Because of Celebrity's making a "scheduling change" and moving our embarkation from Fort Lauderdale to Miami; we opted to go directly to Miami from FLL. After reading a recent review; we made the right decision. In one of my posts I wrote how chaotic it would be at FLL the day of embarkation. We arrived two days prior to the cruise and stayed at the Hilton Hampton Suites on 12th St.. We had a wonderful two days there. We stayed in a suite which was quiet, clean and comfortable with great customer service!
Boarding was a little screwed up. We had checked in online and had all of our documentation, passports, etc.. I do remember the name of the man at the check-in desk but I will not embarrass him on here. Apparently, he was either new or just a bit dim-witted. He could not find our sea pass. Subsequently, he made to new sea passes. Before leaving the desk I checked to make sure everything was in order. I did check to make sure our PNA beverage package was on the card. Everything "appeared" in order. One thing I could not check was; will it open our cabin door? My fears were realized and , yup; red light.
Good cabin on the "hump". Our steward kept our room clean and tidy. Very quiet. No complaints here.
We went to Vigi Beach via taxi
Went ashore, bought a Grenada "bucket hat" bought some cinnamon. The cinnamon was a complete rip off. When we got back home I tasted it and it had not taste whatsoever. My belief; refined sawdust.
Went ashore, bought some sugar free candy at the supermarket. Never felt comfortable on this, less than clean, island. We will never return.
Great wi-fi ! Bought a hat at the "Life Is Good" store. Clean island.
