After having great cruises on both the newer Edge & the Apex ships we were totally dissatisfied with the run down interior of the Ocean View Cafe and the Sky Lounge. The furniture had stains, torn chairs, ripped drapes and some of the glass windows were so dirty you could barely see out of them. My wife & I thought Celebrity was a luxurious brand. We never saw even once, not one bar waiter in the Main theater to take a drink order. For a Luxury Cruise line who advertises how everything is included good luck in finding bar service. Celebrity bombards your emails with Health Protocols but never once told anyone ahead of time that we had to wear masks in the casino and in the theater. We should have known because we would have passed on the cruise. The hypocrites that they are had us sit one foot away from people in the main dinning room on the first night. When you went to get coffee or beverages you were around 15 close people but that did not matter. The main dinning room was not staffed properly and we had to keep asking for water. As a matter of fact the first night the dinning room was so disorganized that we were given a beeper and told they would contact us when a table was ready. We paid damn good money to be on the ship and we are given a damn beeper. We waited in total 40 minutes to eat that night. The food and the shows were very good but Celebrity will not be seeing us again.
