Sail Date: Feb 2020
Cabin: Ocean View 8

We chose this cruise for price and to experience Celebrity. In addition, Qsine (a specialty restaurant featuring "Le Petit Chef") was a major draw. Qsine -the specialty restaurant - was absolutely fantastic and highly recommended.

The Oceanview Cafe buffet was decent, with some hits and some misses, but the quality of the food was high and enjoyable. Service there and in the main dining room was decent, but frankly was better in the buffet, overall.

WiFi was outrageously priced and exceptionally poor - we were lucky to get 2G service at best. Yes, it was the basic plan, but it was circa 2004 quality, not circa 2020. Celebrity needs to get with it and improve it, seriously. It's definitely a strong reason I won't go on another Celebrity cruise anytime soon.

Cabin Review

Ocean View 8

Firstly- the cabin was well-laid out, with a fantastic, large sofa and a very comfortable bathroom. Lots of storage was available, and we didn't lack for entertainment with multiple free (and recent) movies to choose from.

The TV was on a swivel, and the mini-bar was well-stocked. The bed, however, was sub-par, and very uncomfortable. Definitely needed a new mattress! The digital room key worked well, and our cabin steward, Carmen, was fantastic.
