Received complimentary casino offer for an infinite veranda cabin on Celebrity Ascent. Cabin is a good size because of the “balcony.” The bathroom is light, no plastic shower curtain. Sink should be smaller, to create more counter space. Lots of shelves in bathroom.

Had 3 dinners in main dining room. Show up in any of the 4 dining rooms, request a table for 2, otherwise wait for assigned table to fill up so service can begin. Food & service are excellent. Strangely enough, seating is alway available in buffet, extensive selection, excellent breads.

Cushioned deck chairs in solarium, live plants. Lots of deck chairs on ship in shade & sun. Outdoor pool is long & deep. I witnesses a miracle; towels, books, hats were removed from 4 chairs after a 2 hour absence of owners of these items. Pool attendants are present, visible & participating. Unattended belongings were only removed around the pool area, but this is an extremely high bar compared to every other cruise line I experienced. No need to sign out towels. In general, Celebrity Ascent seems to have a tremendously large & visible work force, but not in the cabin steward department. Our cabin attendant was responsible for 22 cabins.

Cabin Review

Floor to ceiling window. If I open the top portion of window to form a balcony, the room becomes hot & humid. If I forget to close the shade, the sun & air conditioned have to do battle. If I move furniture & close 2 opaque doors, I lose the view & the room warms up because these balcony doors don’t form a tight seal. This veranda concept works when you are satisfied with the view but go to an outdoor deck to feel a breeze.
