We chose this cruise because I’d always wanted to go to Iceland, also another chance for celebrity to redeem itself after a very disappointing cruise round the Caribbean in February.

We have been loyal cruisers with Celebrity for years attaining Elite Plus status, sadly it’s time to say goodbye. It started with our balcony cabin, items from the previous occupants were left in the wardrobe. No shower gel or shampoo in shower, no body lotion. Handle on balcony door was so badly peeled, every time you touched it paint came off onto the floor. The balcony window seal was hanging down, it was so rusty I had serious doubts it would last the trip. Wrote a report and most things were put right - where was the checks from housekeeping before the cruise started. As compensation we were offered lunch in the Porch - dreadful experience, you have to pay $36pp to eat there and if you want the seafood stack another $18 pp extra. $36 for a chopped up filling of Lobster bits on a brioche roll seemed a bit steep to me.

Itinerary was changed because of 40mph winds, which was a bit strange as have been in much higher seas and higher winds before with no drama. Captain’s announcements were good but he was the only officer we really saw around the ship. Entertainment was very repetitive, we’d seen it all before, ok if you like trivia and such like.
