This was my 20th cruise - 3rd with Celebrity. Food in MDR and buffet was delicious. Deluxe Balcony cabin was spacious for the 2 of us. The deck 15 that was covered in grass was awesome. The blown glass venue was nice.

There were 8 days at sea and I felt there were not enough planned activities (other than those targetted at selling you something). The production company sounded great when they sang Broadway tunes but when they sang current songs, no bueno. I think the creative director is at fault for the way the shows were put together given the talent. The main entertainment that was brought on board was very good. The music played in the venues around the ship was slow, classical, not geared for anyone under 70. Other than the martini bar and the cafe the venues need improving. All of the game shows and the dance classes were held in the middle of the ship where people are trying to walk which made no sense - they should be moved to a different venue. It was hard to find someone to get you a drink in cellar masters because there was no bar there - very odd. In general it was hard finding people to get us drinks at a number of the venues which I have never run into on other ships - usually the waiters are right there. Quasar - the "club" was in definite need of updating - too small and hardly ever used. The most shocking thing was all of the wine prices were just raised by $7 a glass so unless you had the premium drink package you really had no choice of wine without paying more per glass. Very few wines were less than $17 a glass. I know the prices recently increased because occassionally I was handed an old menu with the prices $7 less across the board. So if you get a drink package - make it premium so at least you have a choice of a couple drinks before you pay more on top of that.
