I took this particular cruise because travel agency it was too of the line. The staff was excellent as were the cabins. My biggest complaint was the food. I would rate it cafeteria quality at best. My friend who cruised with me was very disappointed as well but didn't say anything until the cruise was over. Although they did have many stations in the dining room to choose from I went one day to the Mexican food bar and wanted some refried beans and they were like liquid. The desserts look absolutely gorgeous but they tasted like sponges. I love my food what was so very very disappointed in the quality. It also would have been nice to have coffee stations on the floors instead of having to go all the way up to the 12th floor to get a cup of coffee in the morning. The travel agency I went through to book the cruise said this was her favorite Cruise because of the food maybe I got on a different ship LOL but the food was anything but outstanding. Don't get me wrong it was edible but there wasn't anything I went back for seconds or thirds that's for sure. Also I felt on this particular cruise ship there wasn't really night clubs per se where you can dance and sit and listen to the music without being in the public areas. I thought that was kind of strange so I have been on many cruises before and by far right now my favorite is the star princess. I don't think I'll go celebrity ever again cuz I paid a lot of money for us to cruise and the ship really needed some updating. I hope this helps some just don't go on this particular cruise ship and expect outstanding food cuz you won't find it.

Disappointed
