Boarded in San Juan in less than 30 minutes. Luggage arrived at room by 5PM. Stateroom was neat and clean and accessible from a wheelchair.We opted not to get a beverage package but instead purchased the "stateroom bar package" which includes a beverage of your choice, mixer, and an assortment of nuts. This allowed us to have our cocktails on our own balcony before going to the early seating in the main dining room.The food in the main dining room was wonderful and varied. They even provided my wife with the low sodium menu she had requested earlier. Each night they would give her the following nights menu so she could make her selection and then they would specially prepare it with low sodium.We ordered the "captains" wine package (5 bottles for about $200+). The wine selection was excellent and they would keep track of any unfinished bottles for the next evening.Our first set of table mates constantly complained about the food. First they would ask us "what is this" and then they tasted it and complained about it. After 3 nights we asked for another table and within seconds we were moved to a much more pleasant group that were fun to dine with and agreed with us the food was great.We ate most meals in the main dining room because the buffet was difficult to use in a wheelchair. You could not really see the food to make a selection. There was always a crew member helping out but it's difficult to having to stand up every few feet to see what was there to choose from. Additionally we enjoyed our table mates at every meal in the main dining room. In the buffet we were usually were seated alone.The tours were excellent. We did three. I would leave my power wheelchair at the bus and a crew member would drive it back on board. I think they enjoyed the ride! The tour guides were easy to understand.We had no problems with elevators, except during disembarkation. They were seldom full.We went to three lectures and enjoyed them. We never went to an evening show.The crew was helpful and pleasant. We thought the service was better than Royal Caribbean but since this was only our second cruise we are not experts for sure.Disembarkation was slow because we were being picked up by car so we let everyone with airline rides get off the ship first. Our luggage was waiting for us. We never had to lift a thing.We will happily sail on Celebrity again.RickSan Diego
