We have cruised on multiple cruise lines and were very surprised and pleased with Celebrity this year. Most cruise lines are moving toward add-ons of upscale dining packages, drink packages, photography packages, etc. Celebrity did not pressure anyone at anytime to purchase additional packages and we found this very comfortable. It was available for you to choose, but no one taking pictures at dinner and each time you got on and off the ship was nice. It created a very relaxing feel. The service was 100% . Can't say enough about the staff. Everyone so helpful and happy !
If we had any negatives, it would be the food. Don't get me wrong, there were multiple choices, many different cuisines, but something felt missing. There was no presentation. The food was very good, but not 5 star. The main dining hall did not have any choices that were "Oooh, let me try that!" Just the basic steak, chicken, pasta. The desserts were basic as well, every cake tasted like wet sponge cake. Never found a chocolate frosted cake, not in the main dining hall or the cafe. Just different. Maybe it was just the ship we were on. Whatever it was, it won't stop us from taking another cruise on Celebrity. In fact, we put a deposit down on our next cruise already.
