Both good and bad – this was the 2023 repositioning cruise from Miami to Aruba, Bonaire and Curacao returning to Bayonne, NJ. Overall, the cruise was excellent however there are certainly some very significant highlights to mention, both pros and cons. First, we were in Aqua Class. Great location at the top of the ship Aft. No one above us and the buffet and outdoor bar below but the cabin was situated where we did not hear any noise. I would not recommend further aft as that would be near the door which slams a lot. The room was very pretty but very small, especially the tiny bathroom. The balcony was fine.

The cons start with a real significant non-disclosure by Celebrity. Both Bonaire and Curacao were effectively closed due to island holidays; Kings Day in Bonaire and Labor Day on Curaçao. Nothing was open which meant both stops were effectively a waste and Celebrity should have disclosed that before advertising the great aspects of both these stops. We booked a cruise to three islands and two were closed.

Next, although the inside of the ship is very nice after the remodel, the outside was what everyone onboard was jokingly calling a “rust-bucket.” There was rust everywhere and when sitting in lounge chairs on deck you had to watch what you touched, and it looked awful. Again, inside beautiful, outside horrible. Makes you wonder about the pride they don’t take in maintenance.

Cabin Review

Aqua Class Great location, nice décor but very small room with a tiny bathroom.
