Years ago when Celebrity started out as a cruise line, it was more upscale, catering to a different clientele than it does today.
If you have sailed Celebrity as I have back in the early nineties you will understand.
Today, I would call Celebrity basically middle of the road. There is , in my opinion, a clear reflection of Royal Caribbean showing in Celebrity. I personally think a Celebrity
Cruise today is nothing more than a Royal Caribbean cruise with a different name and different logo on the stack.
If you could have sailed the Meridian, Horizon and Zenith back in '90, 91 and 92 then sail a couple of the ships today, the difference would be so very plain.
