As we were leaving home Celebrity changed the embarkation port from a Singapore to Dubai and dropped the Phuket port call All this was due to the evolving Covi-19 epidemic.
Onboard we were maybe at two-thirds occupation due to the cancellations. This meant that everything was much easier than expected - no pressure on sun beds, dinner times, buffet or the theatre.
The staff were excellent and we enjoyed a fabulous cruise. After many sea days (4);we arrived at Columbo, Sri Lanka. This and all subsequent port dates were unaffected by the new itinerary. The ships’ excursions were the best we’ve ever been on.
A superb cabin as it included all the space that verandah cabins have inside and on their balconies. I5 was 40% bigger than we expected it to be.
The view through the large window was good.
