Have always wanted to do a cruise to Israel and this one gave us 3 days to explore. took the Celebrity transfer from the airport to the port, bus was old and a bit hot and stuffy. Did not like the port of Civitaveccihia, embarkation was in a tent. Your passport is taken away and given back to you on board when you need it for any excursions you have booked. It is a security requirement by Israel. You are also interviewed individually by security people from Israel at a designated time on board the ship before your stop at Ashdod. Whilst the ship is older it does have a quiet elegance about it and the staff were attentive and polite. Like dining at the Blu restaurant which is only for the use of Aqua Class. The entertainment is a bit stale and predictable. The cabin layout makes it feel larger than other ships we have been on and the balcony is much larger but the noise from above and below does not make it relaxing or enjoyable.

Cabin Review

Aqua Class Balcony
Cabin A1 1140
Where do I start! So was excited about this cabin when we booked. It is right at the back of the ship on deck 11. Great to take pictures from except for the flag pole right in front of you. The size of the veranda is much bigger than others we have been in and is partially covered by overhang from the floor above. HOWEVER, the noise from the open air movie theater on the deck above becomes annoying when you want to sit and relax on the balcony. Every other word on the movie playing was the F-bomb, not really something I want to hear from above while trying to relax. The next biggest complaint was on the second morning of our cruise I went out onto the balcony and the whole thing, floor, table and railing was covered in large black flakes of greasy ash from the funnel above. The outdoor theater chairs and floor above where also covered and as the crew cleaned with a hose the water splattered over the edge and onto our veranda below. We complained and they cleaned our veranda, well sort of, there was streaks of grey black ash still present and the railing was missed. The next morning more ash not as much but you could not go out on the deck in bare feet.
