Transatlantic cruise

April

Cons: None to speak of

I was somewhat Leary about eight days at sea but it was an excellent experience which I would entertain again.

New ship design

April

Pros:

Cons:

Recommended: Yes

The design of the ship does not allow for a total unobstructed view, We had a cabin on deck 6 and while we could see out straight without obstruction the only thing we saw to the sides and below was life boats and equipment. In the room description is says this room "has unobstructed views" !!!!! New to re-word descriptions. Also, while the Infinity balcony was great there is a real issue with keeping the windows clean so you have a nice view. Also did not think the dining selections for the Oceanview Cafe was good. The cruiseline is catering too much toward high-end customers!

Nice Relaxing Cruise for Couples

March

Pros: Great food, loved the infinity balcony, prepaid drinks and gratuities, smoke free casino

Cons: Slight feeling of being second class if not in the aqua or retreat class

Recommended: Yes

This was a great ship for the two of us to relax and enjoy. We really appreciated that no worries of post cruise charges and the ship was beautiful.

Disappointing! Ship is too BIG

December

Pros: Beautiful ship! Great Entertainment!

Cons: The Retreat pool area was FULL! Couldn't find seating during the 3 days at sea. .

Recommended: No

We were disappointed in the quality of the food and the service on this ship. We were in a CS suite, and as past passengers and found that Celebrity has gone downhill. My suite was not properly cleaned when we arrived. My luggage didn't make it to my room until after sailing. They are nickel & diming passengers with raising the drink prices an extra $2.00 premium package which is a joke. Everyone in the Retreat was complaining. Lumanie is too BIG. I say go back to The Edge, Apex size ships. Selling day passes to the Retreat pool area for people who did not book a suite is not fair. Makes it not exclusive anymore. Sad to report this.
