This was our second Celebrity Cruise, 1st time on the Connie. The 8 day cruise was a repositioning from San Juan to Bayonne NJ. Jet Blue had best rates to SJ from NYC. We arrived in SJ two days early an stayed at the Best Western Hotel Pierre in Condado. Very convenient to dining and public transportation. Also closer to Pan American Pier, where we left from. A quick taxi ride for $20. Embarkation was quick and painless, Celebrity has it down to a well oiled machine. Our Oceanfront room was ready, and we went to the buffet for a late lunch. The ship was in good condition and clean, the crew seemed a little distant during the first day, but they warmed up as the trip progressed. We booked a dinner in ocean liners the first thing, plenty of openings for us to chose from. The dinner was excellent. Service sublime. I would recommend it highly. The buffet was OK, the waffles and egg station, fresh cooked were the best choice for breakfast, and the pasta for lunch. There was a little of the staff talking in groups instead of working the room, but that improved by the 3rd day. The San Marco dining was good, a bit uneven with food quality with our waiter recommending some dishes not to order. The oddest thing was the staff informing us that they ran out of some food. The sommelier was inexperienced and confused the wine orders and poured the wrong person 3 times. Activities were the run of the mill, but fun. Pool games, trivia, bingo, basketball etc. Entertainment: Cirque du Soleil was the best, followed by the comedy acts. The floor shows need some work, I felt they were fair. The shore excursions were varied and very professional, snorkeling in Turtle Cove and touring St. Maarten were fun. Disembarkation was well run, and the ground transportation was outside in a line, something to think about if the weather is inclement. In summary, Celebrity still pays attention to the small details and not many complaints. Read Less
