Re: CELEBRITY VS. HAL/PRINCESS
Celebrity is a very subdued experience - nearly all follow the dress code for the evening - there are no announcement other than the noon Captain's announcement regarding postion of the ship, air and water temperature, how far we traveled and when we expect to arrive at our next port . The ship has a laid back atmosphere. The dining room is very traditional with assigned table and seating (There is an alternative casual dining offered).
You must be 21 to sail on Celebrity without parent or guardian. In all our cruises, we hardly noticed youngsters of any age. And if you really want to avoid them, Celebrity offers "escape cruises" - no one under 21 allowed.
We were so spoiled by our first Celebrity cruise that we will only sail Celebrity.
