Security

These systems are upgraded as new technologies are developed. Recordings from these cameras are routinely utilized by our security teams and made available to investigative authorities as requested.

The Bad

  • Extra costs
  • Child restrictions

Extra Costs

You will need casual attire, conservative clothing, and evening wear. However, ties are not required. You must purchase beverage packages in order to receive unlimited alcoholic and non-alcoholic drinks. Announcements are kept to a minimum and passengers are many times not alerted to when activities begin. Self-service laundry is not available. Internet and babysitting services also incur additional charges. Celebrity Cruises does not offer complimentary travel accommodations to and from airports or ports of call. Private vehicle rental is available at most destinations. Offshore excursions are not included in the price of the cruise and gratuities on beverages and dining services can add up quickly. There are also the services onboard that cost extra. These services include:

  • Internet
  • Babysitting
  • Laundry

Child Restrictions

Children under 12 months are not allowed on some of the cruises. Children must be six months old at the time of departure to be allowed on certain cruises. Failure to meet these requirements will result in the loss of one related booked adult passenger's boarding with no refunds. Guests entering their 24th week of pregnancy will not be allowed to travel. Services for disabled passengers is extremely limited.

The Bottom Line

Celebrity Cruises are designed for middle-aged and older travelers who desire quiet relaxation and sophistication. These cruise are not designed for families who desire boisterous entertainment options or travelers seeking luxury amenities. Families are welcome, but activities are limited when compared to other well-known cruise lines. Celebrity cruises are perfect for travelers who appreciate fine art, culture, and self-improvement.

We recently returned from a cruise on Celebrity. The ship was very well maintained, the food was great. The best part was our Captain, Captain Kate.

We enjoy the high quality of service we find on Celebrity. From individuals that tend to our room to the waiters and other staff, we are always made to feel special on Celebrity. Of particular not is the high quality and variety of food that is available. On board entertainment is also of high quality and there is plenty else to do while on board. We also like thae fact that Celebrity seems to cater to a more mature crowd and the number of individuals on the ship is not as great as other lines.
