I went on this trip as a familiarization as a travel advisor. I did not get off in Nassau, but took the time to take some on ship tours and really see the whole ship. She is a beauty. She feels very current in her decor having just been through a revitalization in 2019. Dining was good. I was underwhelmed by Blu, the exclusive Aquaclass restaurant. It was ok for included dining, but I would not pay extra for it. The Oceanview Cafe was very good. The typical issues with a buffet, hard to find seats at peak times, lines for custom made items. Sushi on 5 was excellent, however the service was slow. They do ask you to account for 2 hours to eat there which is about right if it is more than 1 person in your party. Cafe al Bacio has some of the best treats. Their chocolate mousse was fantastic. Their Cafe Frappe is no Starbucks but does the trick. I was told that Murano is the best restaurant on board by other sailors. The entertainment was TOP NOTCH! From the performers and musicians themselves to the set lists and arrangements, I was always impressed. Being a singer and musician myself, I appreciate talent and there was none lacking on this ship. The show Elysium was fantastic. Singers, dancers, acrobats, aerialists, all doing what they do very well. Service was always with a smile. Some of the friendliest crew I've seen. It was sometimes slow or lacking in quality but nothing egregious. I can't wait to cruise with Celebrity again. I am a brand fan now for sure.

Cabin Review

AquaClass 2

Nice Cabin. Very well appointed with granite topped dresser/vanity and bathroom vanity.

The bed was very comfortable. I enjoyed the complimentary tea and water. I did not get good Wi Fi reception in this cabin but was fine everywhere else on the ship. The balcony has an overhang 1 deck above it the goes out another balcony length past it. Could be good in inclement weather but bad if you wanted the sun at a particular time of day. There was a good amount of storage space in various locations including a very good sized closet. The couch was not very comfortable but I did not spend a lot of time sitting around my cabin so it was not a big issue.
