I wanted to make a cruise along the Pacific coast and this cruise was 12 nights. Most other cruise lines were fewer nights. I don't like to go to all the effort and expense to go on a cruise for only 7-9 nights. This was my first Celebrity cruise, I normally cruise Holland America. I found Celebrity every bit the equal and more of HAL. One thing HAL does that Celebrity didn't, is the first day of the cruise, the crew on HAL has to serve you, even to pouring your coffee for you. HAL does this for disease reasons but Celebrity apparently, doesn't see the need to do this and I liked that you didn't have to put up with that annoying practice the first day. Also, while HAL's food is superb, I thought Celebrity's buffet and specialty restaurants had better food and selections. However, I think HAL's main dining menu is a little better. We found the entertainment aboard ship, well, highly entertaining for the most part. Finally, considering that the ship served every food imaginable, it was strange that you couldn't get a potato chip anywhere on the ship.

Cabin Review

Ocean View 8
Cabin 08 2190
The cabin was adequate, at the end of a corridor on deck two. The main dining areas were at that end of the ship, so the location was convenient to go up to these spaces. The cabin is an outside cabin with a nice big porthole. The thermostat was useless, as far as making the room cooler. We had it set to the maximum cooling the whole trip and it would have been more pleasant if we could have made the cabin a couple degrees cooler. The clothes storage was adequate but as with typical staterooms, my wife and I had trouble at times navigating around each other in the room, to change clothes, etc. There was a noticeable sewage odor in the bathroom most of the time. We did not report this and just endured it because we had read a review of this room before we came aboard and the review noted this situation too. And the reviewer added they had been unable to get this fixed, so we felt it would have been a waste of time to complain. The TV initially didn't work right but to their credit they jumped on this and fixed it. You can hear the engine mildly rumbling in this room but it was not bothersome, sort of a white noise. There was no noise heard overhead. Relative to the price for the cruise, this cabin worked out fine.
