Keith,kirsty.tennika,sage,elvin ,all the gang,thankyou for a wonderful fun packed time onboard,never a dull moment..

quizes,to cooking,to bingo,to cocktail classes,too many things to mention

food panos what can I say,you and your team excel.  The cabin.spotless,fresh flowers and fruit daily,nothing too much trouble anything we needed or asked for was there in a heartbeat!!!

My first cruise .Williams 5th and his opinion celebrity has been the best.beatiful ship,but the staff made it.

Destinations were lovely,we decided to do our own thing at ports,but there were many excursions to choose from.

We will definately cruise celebrity again.Perry lets not forget your funny banter and msical talent,very enjoyable evenings with you,we hope yuor health allows you to entertain many more...There is nothing bad I can say wonderful time,i'll never forget,feels like we have a new family...THANKYOU.

loads of love,sharon and More William.xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx
one little critisism,spa treatments being in that industry,found treatments too expensive and didnt use,lower prices a bit and you'll get far more custom,many people on ship commented on this to me.apart from that change nothing.,xxx Less

Port and Shore Excursions

1st port of call where we joined ship.love amsterdam,so much to see,no matter what the weather,never enough time there.lol.mini cruises from uk ideal,port right along centers main street it joins on no bother to walk from damm square.

ten minute walk from where shuttle bus drops you off and at end of port,there again is a hop on hop off bus 20 euros each gets you two lines,red and blue.use all day,takes you to all the sights right up to the acropolis,temple of zeus. down to the plaka,no need for excursions here ,but if you want again plenty on offer, if you want leisurely sight seeing.

we didnt actually get off ship here,as we have been before and chose to stay on ship and relax,but comments from passengers who did said very easy access to town and tours good

excellent shuttle bus right to town center,duty free shopping great,didnt do tour only in port for couple hours,but enough for us,again some comments on tours was fine,maybe little more time,but we found plenty time for just shopping,and not big place anyway.xx

quite far from center and unfortunately with our flights and last port we didnt get any time here except airport,but am told beautiful place,perhaps visit another time,traffic awful ,just so busy and that was at 10.30 in morning,long drive to airport thru center,and once at airport not worth risking going to bazzars unless you have about 5 hours to spare.

we went specifically to visit the catacommbs,found that information regarding distance from ship was not at all accurate,we boarded hop on bus and were told by ship concierge that it was about 10 minute walk from last stop on bus,this turned out to be more like half hour and was very hot.I'd suggest if you want to visit there specifically,share a cab from ship and then get bus back leisurely walk to stop,as the are only open from 3 to 5 or in morning,bt ship doesnt dock there til 1 usually,apart from that great experience not to be missed and city itself is beautiful,again many excursions to take you along coast.

right next to town,unfortunately we docked on a sunday and most of the shops are closed on sundays, but there were a few,and beautiful sights to be seen,hop on ,hop off bus if you wanted to tour on your own,again celebrity provide plenty of excursions,
