Customer reviews for Marella Celebration

Just returned from an amazing two weeks on Marella Celebration around the Caribbean and I cannot rate the trip highly enough. We had the most brilliant time. Cabins perfectly adequate with lots of storage space and a nice size bathroom. Turndown service every evening. Restaurants brilliant especially the Meridien where the service and food was just amazing - never had the same choices in 2 weeks. Entertainment team was fantastic with great shows most nights. Special mention must be made of StrumJam and New Dimensions Trio - really got us in to the holiday mood. And Capt. Alex Downes - what a fantastic guy. Cannot rate the whole experience highly enough.
