Sail Date: Jan 2022

Please note that these are my experiences on my January 22nd Apex and January 29th Enchanted Princess cruises. We are Elite on Celebrity and sailed in Aqua Class with dining in Blu. We sailed in a Club Class Mini Suite on Enchanted so we dined in Club Class and received priority embarkation.


We had a 10:30 arrival time with Celebrity. We arrived at terminal 25 at 10:15am. Celebrity directed us into lines according to our arrival time as well as a separate line for Retreat passengers. At exactly 10:30, the doors opened and the 10:30 to 11:00am passengers as well as the Retreat passengers filed in. There were at least 20 blue uniformed staff to assist us. We presented our boarding passes, showed our negative tests and vaccination information and were ushered into the large waiting area. We were directed where to sit according to our arrival. At 11:00am, a very nice staff member came over to our group and informed us that we were next to go. He then approached the next group advising both groups to stay seated until called. Five minutes later, we were boarding the ship. In spite of Covid, this was the best organized boarding procedure we have ever experienced.

Cabin Review

We enjoyed the stateroom. Loved the amount of storage space. We typically spend late afternoons on the balcony so the infinity concept was not for us.

Port Reviews

Belize City

We took the Celebrity Trolley Excursion. It was a way to get off the ship and learn a bit about Belize. Belize City is not my favorite port.

Costa Maya

We had planned to spend the day at a resort. However, it was a cloudy, rainy day so we just walked around the port.
