We chose this cruise as we have sailed with celebrity twice before on different ships and were very satisfied with them. As it was our wedding anniversary we upgraded to a corner sky suite with a larger balcony (Was the best thing about the cruise). Overall it was a disappointing experience due to the high amount of passengers and cramped deck space. It seemed like there wasn't enough capacity in the bars and restaurants to cope. The evening entertainment was also in the main poor with a rush to get seated for the big shows and very little in the way of waiter service. The lawned areas of the deck in my opinion are also a wasted space useful only for more revenue for celebrity to charge extra for alcoves. As this was our anniversary we were told that we would receive a meal in one of the specialty restaurants but this did not happen and flowers and champagne bought for us by a friend only arrived when we were going to bed. We didn't even get a window seat in Luminae that night. The last time we cruised with celebrity was my wife's 50th birthday and was treated to the captain's table and an expensive bottle of champagne. Excursions were good and well organised. Overall it wasn't a bad cruise but for the money I would expect a lot better.

Cabin Review

Sky Suite
Cabin S1 1668
The room and the balcony (over twice the size of a regular balcony) were the best thing about the cruise though iam not sure it was cleaned as thoroughly as it could be (ball of hair in the wardrobe and a couple of shirts from the previous guest left behind).
