We used to love Celebrity but now when we sail with them, it's just OK. If I spend that much money, I should get more than fine. This was our twenty first Celebrity cruise and other than our upcoming cruise to the Galapagos on Flora, this is probably our final X cruise.
Embarkation: Very smooth. No special Coronavirus testing even though we cruised during the start of the crisis. We arrived at the pier around 11:30 and were sitting in the buffet having lunch at 12:15. Staterooms were ready right at 1:00 and bags arrived before muster drill. Had one of best cabin attendants we have had ever.
Stateroom was nice but as usual with S-class ships, not enough storage. Originally we had booked an Aqua class stateroom but the folks who had booked Aqua with us were unable to join us for a variety of reasons so with other friends on board and wanting to eat dinners in the main dining room with them, we changed to regular verandah stateroom 6244.
Great attendant, comfortable room, good water pressure, no storage.
New Orleans was awesome. We just did our own thing.
We stayed with friends.
Went to the Crystal Caves. If you haven't been—go!
Too much wind and wave action to go snorkeling
