Sail Date: Oct 2021
Cabin:

My husband and I booked this cruise because it was a fully vaccinated cruise with reduced capacity and a promise to provide a PCR COVID test at the end of the cruise.

Yes overall the ship’s capacity was reduced but not in Aqua class, it was at 100% capacity. As a result the Blu restaurant was full every night with no social distancing. I did speak to the maître d he tried to give us a table away from others but as the restaurant filled up (do to 100% capacity) people were seated very close. I also spoke to customer relations re my concerns their suggestion was to go to the main restaurants, hum why did we pay the extra for Aqua class! So if you are expecting true reduced capacity you might want to reconsider booking with Celebrity.

Now for the Chaos re the PCR testing, originally we were expecting our test to be done on the ship in the last 2 days of the cruise, no that’s not what actually happened.

Cabin Review

Aqua class with no balcony, balcony, Not impressed with The infinity suites. if you open the window the room got very very hot so really it was useless. We would never book this again.
