Sail Date: Feb 2012
Cabin: Deluxe Ocean View with Balcony 2C

We arrived into Miami about 5pm on February 5 and took a taxi ($30) to the Holiday Inn downtown. Check-in was easy and the room was great...seems to have been recently redone. We went across the street to Bayside for dinner and again the next day for breakfast. This hotel is in an excellent location for cruisers.

Took a taxi (about $15) to the ship about 11am and we were aboard by 1130. The whole process was quick and efficient. We wandered around the ship and tried out the buffet, then the rooms were ready about 1pm. It appeared that some things are a bit dated on this ship, but I did not see any extreme wear and tear. Everything was kept very clean.

Food- We found the main dining room food to be comparable to that on RCCL. We had always heard that Celebrity was a step above RCCL, but we found them to be very similar in quality. We very much liked the fact that there was the large alternate selections available every evening, but we were not impressed with the bread selections. The buffet was just okay. First off, the set up is beyond horrible. I could never get to the salad area without waiting in line for other stuff. The set up does not make sense. Second, there really didn't seem to be a lot of choices in the buffet. My biggest complaint is the quality of those scrambled eggs....wet and soupy! The Cova cafe (almond croissants) was wonderful and be sure to check out the burgers and fries at the Ocean grill.

There is really nothing around the area where the ship docks.

Cozumel

Great area. Cab ride to the main part of town is inexpensive and it is also easy to walk.
