What do my fellow cruisers and fans of Celebrity think
Buttons16, you asked for fellow cruisers thoughts back in Feb. It is now April and with >90 posts the overwhelming opinion of fellow cruisers is they do not agree with your thinking. Posters on this website are not one time or infrequent cruisers, they are experienced seasoned cruisers.

You noted a while back you are willing to pay a few hundred $$ more for a higher level of food & service. One poster noted that is all you will pay by frequenting the specialty restaurants for all your meals on Celebrity ships. I assure you Celebrity specialty restaurants are a higher level than the MDRs were back in the days it was acceptable to your standard.

IMHO, you should not cruise on mass market or luxury lines. We may someday run into each other and your exhausting argumentive nature will put a damper on my good time.

Experiences over the years enabled me to have all the answers, but not necessarily corresponding with your questions.
