This was our second cruise on Celebrity, travelling from NY to San Juan and back. The ship was great, the dining was really excellent, and so were the shows. The drinks are really expensive, I see no reason for this and so the bar bill really mounts up by the end of the trip even for very moderate drinking like a wine at the table and a G&T before dinner. The staff are totally excellent.
I would hesitate to travel from NY again as the ship was very cold until we reached the Caribbean. Ladies were wearing sweaters and outdoor clothes inside and by the end of the trip a lot of people had sore throats and colds. Even in the San Marco restaurant sweaters and cardigans were the norm, which is a shame.
The ports were all great, although we did not go on any specific trips, we prefer to find our own way around and to support the locals.
