This was my 7th cruise. First on Celebrity. Previously, I had found that Holland was the best I'd been on, FAR superior to Princess and Royal Caribbean. I'd cruised solo, with family, and with a GF.
First off, if you're single, do NOT take this cruise. Not only are there virtually no singles, but, the SOLE listing for any singles get-togethers on board were innocuously placed on a card near guest services. There was no notification inb the daily planner.
Second, if you are under 60 years old, do NOT take this cruise. While the stats say that the average age is 55 (A "bit" older than other cruise lines), don't you believe it. The average is WELL above 60.
HUGE. Best ever.
Veranda was a waste - nothing to see on this itinerary, but would be amazing in either Alaska or the Greek Isles.
