Sailed 7/29/02. This was our first cruise, so we went along with whatever the travel agent said concerning what level to be on, and we realize now that she probably upped us several categories (and prices)unnecessarily. Nevertheless, the ship was very nice, the service was wonderful (especially when the waiters would take your tray and carry it to a table for you from the buffet at breakfast or lunch), the meals were terrific and the shows were (for the most part) entertaining (I could have used a few less jugglers).
We found out that we're not "formal night" people and that we enjoyed the no-formal-dining system that they had on the line we went with for our second cruise. Still, we would definitly use Celebrity again. Now that I'm getting ready to book a third cruise, it will be a tough decision whether to go with one of the cruise lines we've gone on before, or to try a third one to see what they're like.
