Like Kuki I too have been on Celebrity, Carnival, RCCL (twice), Princess(twice), and HAL
within the past 12 months. Celebrity was certainly no better than any of the others and in many ways not as good.
The rooms are larger on HAL and Carnival. The dining room staff is nicer on all the
other cruise lines than on Celebrity. No other cruise line requests or suggests you stay dressed up all evening on formal nights. And no other cruise line suggests you tip the chief housekeeper at the end of the cruise. Finally, food on Celebrity is much closer to RCCL and Carnival than it is to Princess and HAL.
Yes, I will grant you that aCelebrity cruise beats the hell out of going to work, but they are certainly not 'better than all the rest' as Celebrity likes to say.
