The start of a great trip

Chose this cruise for the safety if offered. It seemed to go above and beyond any other holiday we had looked at. This is our fifth cruise and our first with Celebrity. Well I think they have me smitten. Sailed from Southampton to Inverness, Belfast and Portland. From the PCR tests (inc.) arriving at port (free parking inc) to our daughters rapid antigen test (inc) as was tips, wifi, and classics drinks package and no single supplement well it was an offer to good to pass. Their Celebrity phone app is amazing and easy to use, had my e-ticket, door key (plastic one also) whats on daily and my personal planner through the app. Staff- Wow, Celebrity you have some amazing staff - really. I thought that sort of service had died. Viraj cabin steward gold star, Julia main dining and coffee cafe gold star, Thia Dining and health cafe gold star. Honestly gold stars all round.

We had a concierge room on deck 10 (it was this or balcony when we booked thats all that was left). More than enough space and great facilities. Very comfortable bed, good sized balcony, storage was ample. Shower great size and lots of storage in there.

We were not a full ship passenger wise (Celebrity's choice) so there was a huge amount of space and always sun loungers available. The food: Buffet was good not all stations open and I did feel that the food was tailored to the British market (all passengers were British). Main Dining: Again good, a decent choice on the menu. Healthy cafe next to indoor pool was great. Sadly we didn't get to try the speciality dining as we cruised with friends and it was a little complicated but next time. It does look like most of our cruisers prefered flexi dining, which is the upper floor of main dining area. We saw so man empty tables on the fixed dinging level. Entertainment was varied and very good but due to covid new regulations the venues had to keep moving around the ship so areas could be sanitised which again I thought was great for the passenger safety. This was a lovely cruise and I did feel very safe and very relaxed. It gave us everything we needed and with a huge smile. So thank you Celebrity, we will be back.
