Sail Date: Nov 2011
Cabin: Concierge Class 2

We had many problems on this cruise. Most were caused by the front office of Celebrity. Evidently 400+ people were sick on the previous cruise so "high sanitation" was in effect. Some of the passengers were notified by the cruise line 2 days before that the ship would leave later than normal and there was a big case of noro on board. They were given the option to take transfer to a cruise at a later date. Unfortunately we were not notified so we were sceptical about taking our pregnant daughter with us and probably would have opted for another cruise.

Embarkation was a mess. They did not let us on the ship until late in the afternoon and then could not get into our cabins until after 6 p.m. Supposedly all cabins had been totally sanitized yet we found dust in ours.

The library was closed the entire cruise. Ironically we dined with a doctor who specialized in infectious disease. He told us that there was no way that the virus could be spread on books. Many of their company imposed high sanitation procedures only made it inconvenient for the passengers and meant nothing to the spread of the virus.

Cabin Review

Concierge Class 2

Cabin C2

Excellent location. A little cramped for 3 but no problems. Quiet. Perfect for transatlantic if you want the sunny side.

Port Reviews

Gibraltar

Local taxi to the top viewing caves and monkeys. Easy to catch, no need to book with cruise line. Great shopping down main street. Easy walk back to the ship.

Tenerife

We just walked around the city. Probably would be best to book a tour of interest.
