Default Celebrity - Opinions ?

My mom & I are booked on Carnival Liberty for Dec 11.

As of now we're staying 2 nights pre-cruise in South Beach. However, while browsing around today we found a Celebrity cruise on Century that does a 5 night sailing the 5 days before Liberty. When considering the cost of food, doing things, and accommodations it would be about the same as staying in SoBe for the two nights. So my question is - has anyone been on Celebrity ? Opinions ? I hear the food is great, but that it's an older crowd. I have no problem with older folks so that wouldn't be a huge issue for me, I'll have my fun ship the week after. Does Celebrity have the same 1am curfew as RCCL ships since they're owned by them ? I have no idea about what they have on board, the teen programs, etc ..

This is all just an idea right now. My mom's calling Celebrity in the morning to get more information & she'd have to check with work to see if the time off would be okay. I just figured I'd pop on here for some input, if anyone has any ! Thanks (:

Celebrity is alright. I've been on them 3 times, once each in the summers of 2001, 2002, and 2003, on ships that Celebrity does not even own anymore (2001 and 2002 on Zenith and 2003 on Galaxy).

It was not bad the times I went. Nowadays I think they aim at an older crowd than when I sailed. But even so, you should have a good time. Out of the 4 cruise lines I've been on (Carnival, Princess, Celebrity, and Royal Caribbean), I remember Celebrity having the best food.

Thanks for the info about Celebrity !
Looks like as of now we're not booking it. We're just going to stick to the South Beach plan so my mom doesn't lose another week out of work. It'll still be fun (:

I know it'll be a blast ! I've only eaten and driven around in South Beach, so I'm really excited to be staying in the middle of everything this time.

I'll have to look into that ! If I got the website right, it looks crazy lol.
As of now we have no plans, although I think we might go check out FIU.
& I definitely want to go the gelato place where the Jersey Shore cast worked.

lol, thanks.
you're going to have a blast on a cruise for new years. i've done christmas and new years cruises seperate before .. i found christmas to be more "family" time, but new years seemed like any other cruise atmosphere. i don't know what celebrity does for new years eve night, but if it's anything like what royal caribbean did it will be amazing !! bring back tons of pictures & stories (:
& no, i haven't heard of that new show. i'll have to look for it.

Managed to dig up a sizzle reel for Lake Shore... sounds interesting enough. Think Jersey Shore gone multiethnic.

Sizzle reel on the link.

I didn't get to see the trailer, but I read the description and the show sounds pretty entertaining lol. Is it just going to be airing in Canada ?

I would assume so. It's far to racially tense for the US market. We were up in arms over Jersey Shore when it first debuted, FCC would have a field day with this...
