We wanted to see the islands in the southern Caribbean and we wanted to try a Celebrity cruise, since we'd heard and read that this was a great line. The crew members were great and the holiday decorations, especially the staircase, were fantastic. Plus, we had perfect cruise weather. This cruise was just average. We cruise because we like seeing new places, dining out every night and having live entertainment in the evening. We've been on about 12 cruises on several lines and last year's 10 night Princess cruise was far better than this one. The food was above average, in my opinion. But the main dining rooms were so crowded and noisy that we couldn't enjoy dining in them. We used the dining room on only 4 of 12 nights. We used the buffet every other night because at least we could have a conversation that way. But we didn't choose an upscale cruise because we wanted to eat in the cafeteria. Our cabin was okay. It had a balcony, but it had less storage than some oceanview cabins we've had on other lines, the mattress was uncomfortable, and so was the sofa. The bath towels were a disgrace - they actually hurt to use because they were so rough. We like room service for early coffee, especially with a veranda, but Celebrity's room service was awful. The coffee was cold and the pastries were stale; no plates, one napkin. We didn't bother trying it again. The theater entertainment was mixed. Several acts were very good, some were okay and one, the "impersonator", was offensive. The man made inappropriate comments about almost everyone except Donald Trump and he actually groped his own crotch at one point. By far the most tasteless "performance" I've ever seen; Celebrity should be ashamed to present someone like that. We'd have left but we were stuck in the middle of a row. We enjoyed the ports and and the the people living there. We'd planned to try specialty restaurants but didn't because, frankly, we felt pressured to spend from the moment we boarded and we got tired of that. We found the outdoor areas crowded even on port days and impossible on sea days (there were 4) and the inside areas were always very cold. We won't be going on another Celebrity cruise.
