Default A survey on a Celebrity cruise !

Hi ladies and gentlemen,

I thought this would not only be fun be very informative. In order to partake in this survey you must do the following ****This is not a survey on a certain ship but the Celebrity cruise as a whole...You must answer each question in full...an answer such as I can't think of anything is not a valid answer.

1 - What is the one thing most important to you that you would like to see improved in general on a celebrity cruise ?

2- What is the one thing you wish Celebrity cruises stopped doing on their cruise's (There has to be something...nothing is perfect in life)

3- What one thing do you love to do on a Celebrity cruise
-----------------------------------------------------------------------
My ansers are as follows
1- I would like to see the food improved on a Celebrity cruise
2- I would love the removal of automatic tipping
3- I love to see dress up on formal nights

This is a great little interesting thread I think....

My opinion will be based on 10 cruises with Celebrity going back to the days of Horizon and Zenith.#1 Need to reinstate the welcome party with drinks and not just a champagne toast and the same with the second party with drinks and passed around appetizers.The same holds true for the party given for those with 5 cruises or more where they have totally reduced the drink menu #2Stop adding private cabanas taking up public space around the pool.#3Love to participate in competitive games which appeal to all ages.Meeting new found friends in the martini bar prior to dinner.

1. Boarding and debarkation needs to be faster and more fun. Why not provide free food, a band, at least a tv in the embarkation area? Here's your card now sit and wait until we call you for an hour.

2. Boring announcements all day. Hi this is your Captain, tomorrows weather will be 62degrees....

3. Theme days. Today we go to Jamaica so the band plays Caribbean music, the dinner has Jerk Chicken, the Parade of Waiters everyone wears a wig with dreadlocks.

Or something random like on a sea day it's Pirate day. Free eye patches are brought to your room with your daily guide, 10% off anything if you wear it. Drinks, in shops, at specialty restaurants.

Aero, cruise lines have been trying to distance themselves from things that were popular back in the fun ship days of cruising...some of those thing should not come back, including that pirate with the bird on it's shoulder at the dining room table

Pfft vacation is the time to let the little kid out of the box you stuffed her in all year being an "adult".


...but Celebrity did have some lady who was dressed up go to every table at dinner for pictures. I think she was a princess but I can't recall(obviously didn't buy the photo).

I agree...I feel if someone wants a more party cruise, and or a roving photographer taking your picture holding birds...or looking like a pirate...then I think a Carnival cruise would be more to the liking..

Remember the different cruise lines cater to different tastes...I don't want to see a beer drinking contest on a Celebrity cruise, nor do I want to partake in a pillow fight trying to knock someone off a balance beam....If Celebrity starting doing that, then I would have to save up my money and not go as often and try to eek out a cruise on Crystal or Silver Sea....I truly hope I don't have to resort to that.

So with that said Hey Carnival keep your beer drinking, pillow fighting, hiding the ping pong ball in your bathing suit stunts....HEY Celebrity keep and try to up grade the elegance factor.

At least there are some activities on Carnival during the sea days. Celebrity needs to pick up the pace a little bit as we are somewhat bored during the sea days For the record we are Elite and more than 10 cruises on Carnival Even Holland has some very educational classes to better your cooking skills and photo shots.

I am not sure if I agree. Like I stated if I want to cram in as many games and stunts as possible then I would take a Carnivale cruise. However cruising is not always about how much beer I can drink in 2 mins or whatever other stunt is dreamed up. Sometimes to some people a cruise means just that, a relaxing elegant form of traveling. Maybe take in a book in the library, maybe a cup of coffee or a martini. How about a wonderful dinner some great conversation and a nice show to take in, then maybe some dancing.... Thats my idea of a cruise....relax, breath in and out...and take in some sun as you drift off in dreamland....

Like I said the reason for so many different cruise lines is because everyone does not have the same taste.

I think your reasons for picking Celebrity are in "sync" with mine. Me and my DW enjoy the laid-back days at sea, reading a good book, nice cool drink, a dip in the pool or hot tub. Then, grab a variety of goodies for lunch (don't forget the desserts!). Take a stroll around the ship, collect a few interesting photos....yes, life is good!

Now, get "cleaned -up" for a fabulous dinner, complete with interesting conversations with people from different parts of the country and world, more good desserts (see the pattern here!!). Now time for a nice cocktail, then on to a nice show!

Now time for some evening fun, either in a lounge, casino, dancing.... it's all good!!!! The great thing is whatever you enjoy, you'll get the chance to go it all over again the next day :-D

We've been blessed to cruise 18 times now, 9 with Celebrity. I can't say all of them were equal or great, but each one was enjoyed, and the small problems never stopped us from looking forward to another cruise!

Happy Cruising1

One thing I forgot to mention; if I had a "wish" list for Celebrity, it would be that they would add a private island like all the other major lines.

Just about everything you have mentioned about cruising is exactly what I like.

I just dont get running all over the ship to do as much as you can...Some things they do on other cruise lines I would'nt give a second thought about doing if I was not on a cruise ship...

I use to cruise with a cruise line (Won't mention name) that had so many things to do while at sea that you needed a vacation from your vacation...Most had to do with how many ping pong ball you can stuff in your bathing suit, how much beer you can drink out of a huge long neck gallon glass. The cruise director always screaming into his microphone..there was a time I just wanted to get the heck off the ship and have some peace and quiet.

Like the old saying goes different strokes for different folkes...I prefer a relaxed setting...calmness, no screaming drunk people at the pool.

I understand that evening wear on the ship has many different forms...I prefer to be in a tux on formal nights and I prefer that other men not in tuxedo's at least are wearing a dark suit. I also prefer nice slacks over jeans except on a out door tour or excursion. I love women to be in Gowns or at least a nice pants suit. I dont like any men to be wearing hats during any meal in the MDR.

Though my next cruise will be on Celebrity Summit to Bermuda, My wife and I are thinking about all future cruises on either Silver Sea or Crystal cruises...I just prefer a more calm relaxed quiet atmosphere.

As someone who has been cruising Celebrity since the early 90s I have to agree with you. IMHO the dining on Celebrity is fine but not what it was in the early 90s. I would compare dining then to eating in the current Specialty restaurants. Imagine that you're regular dining in the MDR was like a specialty restaurant every night, it used to be...

If they did that, people would not pay to go the specialty restaurants. When they started having them and they found that many passengers were willing to cough up extra bucks for their food. The MDR meals had to be kicked down a notch.

I haven't been on Celebrity since 1997 but I was in a Century Suite on that cruise. It was tiny but I loved having a butler. We just came off a Princess cruise in a Vista Suite at I'll have to say the only thing missing was a butler.

Therefore, we just booked the Penthouse Suite on the Constellation for our next cruise. My sister-in-law will be in a Royal Suite down the hall.

I've been to Labadee and you should not miss it if you have a chance to visit there. It is beautiful!

I wish Celebrity could dock at Mahagony Bay in Roatan. I understand it is owned by Carnival Corp but I loved it. I would be disappointed if I had to dock at the other dock in Roatan.

On your last cruise what was the dress code adherence on formal night?

I have never seen so many jeans in the MDR The expressions on some of the faces was priceless - I swear I even saw many in shorts and 'muscle' t-shirts around the ship on formal night- so different from my last Celebrity cruise.

The food and service had deteriorated as well - but I made a few comments - someone left me an attention to detail card to complete - mistake - but kudos - huge improvement very quickly - at least they listened and reacted very quickly.

Your exact points as to why my wife and I have decided to book a crystal cruise. The two items I dread to see on a ship...Jeans at night and low quality food and service. Two Items I don't think is an issue on Crystal.

We were just on Connie for 2 weeks, and there are a couple of improvements we would like to see.

Either enforce the dress code or scrap it. This has been beaten to death, so I am not going to elaborate, but jeans and t-shirts and even shorts were in evidence in the MDR on non-formal nights. We did Select dining and were at the MDR at 5:30 PM or so.

Adults only means adults only. I do not care if you think your child or grandchild is well behaved or not, the T-pool and Aqua Spa area is for people over 18 (16?). Period. I have reported and will continue to report violations of this to the staff.

Pool deck music needs to be provided longer on sea days, and the choice of music needs to be rethought. This cruise started and ended with 2 sea days on either end. It wasn't until the last sea day that we heard any calypso or what loosely may be termed "cruise music." Why not at the beginning of the cruise as well, so as to set the mood. It's the Caribbean for crying out loud.

Food is not the main focus when we cruise, but we did notice what we considered to be an improvement in the MDR menu over this same cruise from last year. Desserts were much improved. While certainly not up to par with the specialty restuarants, it was still good.

Despite all of the above, we booked a couple more while on board. The OBC's were good, and the fact that the deposit was so low (and fully refundable within the established timelines), made it very attractive to do so.

Still the best cruise line out there for the money in our opinion...

I agree about enforcing the dress code but Jeans are now allowed in the MDR on smart casual nights. The only time I have ever see shorts or a t shirt is on the first night as some don't receive their luggage.

I am fairly liberal re dress code but I should have had my camera with me - couples dressed in tux and long gowns sitting next to couples dressed in t shirts and shorts on formal night - even I had to do a double take.

BTW I wear black trousers and a smart shirt on formal night and I don't count that as dressing formally.

All in all an interesting cruise re people watching.

1st of all - I agree Celebrity overall supplies a good value product.

My comments re food; I was comparing to a Med cruise food - def of higher quality. I did not think I was a foodie but I now think I am

Re your comments re adult only facilities used by children - I agree it did happen but as there were only 47 children on board - not a major issue.

I did observe people's belongings being removed from pool loungers and I also observed security warning people re smoking on balcony - surprised but pleased.

My OMG moment was def the wearing of the 'muscle' tshirts and shorts on formal night.

What you describe would be very rare on a Celebrity ship for formal night. They usually do enforce the no shorts in the MDR, especially on formal nights. Perhaps there was an explanation such as not getting their luggage at all. I saw that happen with a couple seated at a table next to us. I would guess what you saw was done for a reason.

So rare it happened on all 3 formal nights with at least 10 different couples that I saw?

I was chatting to two of the couples(age late 60s) in Michael's club ; they said they had only packed shorts and capris and had absolutley NO intention of dressing up and NO intention of NOT eating in the MDR.

They were on a Caribbean cruise and would dress according to temperature.

As I said an interesting cruise

Still rare on a Celebrity cruise, the usual reports from people are men not wearing jackets or ties, etc, rarely do people complain about people wearing shorts.I don't know where I saw it but someone reported back that they had an interesting solution to the problem. At the end of the cruise, they did the tipping on their own and did not give a tip to the Maitre'd and actually explained to them that they were not getting a tip because they refused to enforce the dress code. I am not supporting this, just reporting what someone said.

I am not supporting this, just reporting what someone said.

I have a fairly relaxed and liberal attitude to dress codes but I was very surprised and many were angry.
