9 night Mediterranean cruise: customer service by Celebrity staff was best in class - all staff were friendly and helpful and all contributed to making our time aboard special. The food was really good quality and the menus were varied and changed daily. The ship was spotlessly clean, entertainment was good, pools were good. Really couldn’t fault it at all and would absolutely book with Celebrity again. We had a Concierge Class room with balcony, which was a lovely place to sit and enjoy the view as we arrived or left ports especially.Show more
If your looking for any nightlife eg, dancing, comedians, late bars, disco don’t go on this ship, everything finishes at 11.30 the band stops and everything closes, they have a silent disco which is ridiculous just an easy evening for the DJ to go home. People are on holiday and they need to realise that the entertainment on the ship needs to go on, not put on a cd and go to bed! The food was very good the rooms a bit dated but very clean the ship needs to be up dated as it’s old but very clean. The staff are very helpful as per usual, never saw the captain at any given time. The ports were lovely around the Mediterranean but Celebrity charge huge prices to tender passengers from some ports to the mainland which is madness, if we paid for the cruise we expect to be close to amenities, it’s cheaper for the ship to go miles away and then charge passengers to come closer to ports it’s unfair and greedy. The spa is lovely but again the prices are sky high over £120 for a massage and then they expect you to add 18% gratuity and a tip! The girls hang around trying to sell overpriced products and treatments if they dropped the price they wouldn’t have a problem but they keep it high and don’t get too many customers? I have used Celebrity for over 20 years the ships are lovely but they need to be on the button with prices and I feel they have overpriced everything.Show more
