Very Enjoyable cruise

Sail Date: August 2011
Destination: Europe - Eastern Mediterranean
Embarkation: Rome (Civitavecchia)
We really enjoyed our holy land cruise. The ship was lovely and the staff were fantastic. Our stateroom attendant could not do enough for us. All the staff we met were always smiling and many stopped to talk.

We were select dining and never had any problem getting a table for two. We did not like the location of one table we were allocated but just said and the staff moved us to a better located one. food was delicious with plenty of things to choose from in the dining room. We mainly ate breakfast and lunch in the buffet and had no problem getting a table. There was always plenty to choose from and especially loved the omelettes at breakfast.

We did not sit around the pool but made use of our balcony so were not aware of how busy it was. We went to the shows and really enjoyed them especially the guest performer Lynsey Hamilton we could have listened to her all week.

We had flights and transfers arranged through celebrity. Everything worked fine on the way More there but we had a long wait for our flight home. We did not want to leave the ship and will certainly be booking celebrity again. We met some lovely people from all over Europe. Less

We got the metro to Athens and then picked up a HOHO bus. Very easy to do and let us focus on what we wanted to see.

We did a ships tour to Nazareth and Galilee. The tour was good but the guide was useless on the bus. He spent most of his time speaking to a family at the front of the bus and when he did speak to the rest of us he had the microphone too close to him so was hard to hear.

this was the whole point of going on the cruise and we loved the visit to Jerusalem and Bethlehem. The first day we had a tour of Jerusalem and the second a half day tour of Bethlehem all arranged through the ship. Getting to ad from Jerusalem took a while but the guide used it to tell us info about Israel.

We had booked a ships excursion to Ephesus with a visit to the terrace houses. The guide we had was the best of the holiday. We really enjoyed the visit especially being able to see the terrace houses. As part of the tour there was a carpet demonstration but you did not have to go to it. After the tour we had a look at some shops

We went early to pick up our tender tickets so were off quite quickly. We took the cable car up and had a lovely wander around. We walked back down which was a fun experience
