Default Ice cream?

I was told during our first cruise that the soft serve machines were what made the ship go. Always being the type to take my responsibilities seriously, I frequented the ice cream machines almost daily.

Does Celebrity offer free ice cream?

Ice cream (both softserve and regular) was free on the Connie last Feb. I sure hope it's still free in Feb.2012 when we sail the Silhouette. I personally prefer it to gelato which was NOT free!

Yes they have it in the buffet and it is YUMMIOLA!! I especially live the red wine sorbet ...they will have it as an intermezzo at dinner on formal night, then it should show up in the buffet the next day..at least it did on Summit...

Delish!

I was on the Connie last month and had one bowl of ice cream - one was enough - not a patch on Mackies - JMHO - I was very disappointed.

Good for you Manuel but my single bowl contained chunks of ice - I shiver at the memory.

Guess I was unlucky and decided not to risk it.

No wonder my cruises always have great power, I am an Ice Cream addict and "live at the soft serve machine".

I leave on Sat on Eclipse and have viewed the Tuscan Grille menu. We have reservations there nightly and I am already planning the gelato one night, the sorbetto the next, the gelato following, the sorbetto following, and then some more...
Marie Antoinette, you were right: let them eat cake! (although I know she never said this)

Enjoy.

I've not had ice cream in a while and I am in withdrawal.
