We chose this cruise as we needed a vacation and was offered a great price with fantastic benefits. We had been to each of the places on the itinerary before, but we wanted to experience Celebrity again. We were not disappointed! The ship was clean (it was only one of twenty-three ships that the CDC gave 100% cleanliness award), the staff exceptional, food was great and shore excursions reasonably priced. We decided to give snorkeling a try and we loved the choices offered by the Celebrity shore excursions. Although one of our excursions had to be diverted to a different place due to high winds, and a storm the prior evening, we still had a great time. That storm also kept us in port overnight, but that diversion did not change our itinerary. Overall, we had a fantastic cruise and would recommend Celebrity to anyone who was looking for great service, great food, awesome entertainment, at a price point that doesn't break the bank.

Practically perfect

Cabin Review

Deluxe Veranda (obstructed view)
Cabin 2D 6186
The cabin was spacious and although the view was obstructed, looking straight out you could see the ocean. The obstruction didn't bother us at all. Our room steward was wonderful.

Port & Shore Excursion Reviews

  • Snorkeling
    We went to a sea turtle discovery center, where we got to hold sea turtles and snorkel with them. It was lot of fun. On the way to the discovery center, we went to Hell (lots of fun to take pictures and send a postcard from Hell).

    Unfortunately, due to high winds and a storm the previous evening, we were unable to go to the live reef. Captain Ron offered a refund (which we didn't take), and brought us to a protected reef area. We didn't get to see much, but we enjoyed the experience.
