This was our 9th cruise overall; our 4th with Celebrity and our third in Aqua Class. Food, the level of accommodation, and the entertainment is important to us. We thought that we had found a nice balance of our priorities versus cost with Celebrity Aqua Class but felt they had slipped compared to our pre-covid cruises with them.
The ship has held up well and our room was fine. The service people at all levels seemed really happy to be back to work and were gracious and helpful to a fault. What suffered was the food and the entertainment.
On the entertainment scene two headliners were great: Nez the saxophonist and their Cirqe-like acrobats on the last night. The rest, including the house productions were meh-to-poor.
