I chose celebrity because it had more of an adult theme than some of the others. It was perfect! From the moment my husband and I embarked, which went smoothly, we were blown away by the excellent service. The food was the best I have ever had, the ship was spotless, the shows were very good, and our aft room(1674)was very comfortable. I noticed our balcony was a little longer than most others. We had concierge class which was kind of nice. We didn’t eat in any specialty restaurants but dined in MDR for dinner and ate in buffet for lunch. The MDR was definitely like eating in a 5 star restaurant every night. Excellent service and food. We used the celebrity app to view menu ahead of time. The food in the buffet was also delicious! Try their pizza! We purchased premium non-alcoholics package and enjoyed the most delicious virgin pina coladas all week in addition to Perrier, Pellegrino, and coke. We also loved going to Bacios after dinner for lattes and espressos, which was included in our drink package. The pastries and desserts were great there, too. The ship wasn’t as crowded as the carnival cruises I have been on. I always found comfortable seating when I wanted it. Sea days were busy by the pool but not unbearable. The solarium was much quieter and cooler. No kids allowed in solarium which was nice. There were some whiny old people who complained about silly things, like wanting guacamole on the bottom of a poached egg instead of the top, or getting served 2 pieces of toast instead of one. But overall, everyone was very nice. Lots of countries represented amongst staff and guests. There were not as many onboard activities on this cruise as on the carnivals I have been on. The silent disco was really fun and the live music was great. Evening shows were really good. No ice sculptures by the pool, and exercise classes, like Zumba, required a fee, but this cruise was very relaxing, fun, and I felt pampered the whole week. Captain Kate and cruise director Maartin were very visible and made the trip even more fun. Because of the excellent and friendly staff, from the bussers to the captain, this cruise was amazing,
