Due to ongoing COVID 19 i had to call and cancel our excursion. I was dealt with very politely and had a friendly chat with the rep who sorted everything out with no hassle and would not hesitate to use this company again. Treated very well by this company and would highly recommend. Note had to click on when i visited to submit the review sorry

My wife and I boarded the cruise ship Celebrity Concellation on Oct 1st 2019 to have what we expected to be a relaxing holiday. From the moment we sailed were constantly asked by various crew members to "upgrade" to drinks packages,to fine dining restaurants and shore excursions. The reason for the restaurant upgrades was because the ocean cafe never served hot food,or if it looked hot the plates that were offered were stone cold. The drinks on board were very expensive ie a so called large beer was $7.50 with a 20% surcharge making it $9.00 plus given that each pasanger paying a $14.50 gratuities charge made a very expensive beer. The any time dining room 7.30 to 10.30 was a pain having to wait for up to 20 minutes for a table,we only found out on the last night that we could have booked but no information was given beforehand. If you didn't want to go on an over priced shore excursion you had to ask at the passenger information desk for transport alternative transport information that could have easily been added inside the daily info paper. For an example ship shuttle bus $15 same trip on local bus €1.50 each way. On the plus the inside stateroom was of a high standard and all the crew were very nice and helpful and the ship was very clean Would we go with Celebrity again? NO

Did the Mediterranean cruise on Norweigan Pearl, lovely ship, comfortable cabin, quite roomy and adequate, although an inside cabin! Dined most nights at the Indigo restaurant , and the food was excellent with various choices! The Garden Cafe is a buffet arrangement, good assortment and variety but felt the buffet was not as good as on the Princess ships! The entertainment was rather dull and repetitive, we only went to two shows as there was not much variety, and only one show each night, whereas on Princess there was always two to choose from! The ship was very clean and well maintained!

As part of a 7 day cruise of the western med, we booked Rome the complete tour with cruisingexcursions.com. The price was significantly less than our ship prices and our experience was magnificent! Suzie, our tour guide was so knowledgable and gave us a great walking tour taking in the Colosseum, Trevi Fountain, Pantheon, Piazza Navona, St Peter's Square including a visit to the Basilica. We had such a wonderful day in Rome, and thanks to Suzie's expertise we learned so much and avoided being burned in the 35 degree heat as she managed to find shade throughout the tour. We were also grateful for the great advice and tips on where to eat for lunch just off Piazza Navona. We had a lovely lunch at a restaurant called Cybo which set us up nicely for our final part of the tour in the Vatican. We would definitely use cruisingexcursions.com again. Thanks for the memories!

Review of Celebrity Reflection 11 days Ft. Lauderdale Fl. to Caribbean . GOOD You need to do this cruise in the Suite class if you can. The Luminae restaurant is the highlight of the ship . This is a suites only venue . The food and the service here was great. The Murano a specialty restaurant you pay $50 dollars extra for was very good . The Tuscan grill specialty restaurant $45 dollars was NOT very good . The food was over cooked and poor quality. BAD The excursions were NOT very good . In some areas you actually felt threatened with street people coming up to you .. In your face from the moment you dock in Cartagena . They were relentless . Even coming up to your boat as you were leaving trying to sell you something . In Panama our original trip was canceled (to go through the canal ) . It was stated as easy (activity level ). They put us on a strenuous level trip. Then provided us with a guide who was handicapped. Out excursion was to be 7 hours it went to 8 1/2 hours and we were given nothing to eat. And were told during the excursion . To get something to eat on your own . But many people were unable to get anything to eat as there was not enough time given. The restaurants were very slow on the town tour . Sitting for over 1/2 hour for any service at all. So you had to leave . YOU CANNOT HEAR the guide during any of the tours period !!! If you are more than 10 to 15 feet away. Some of the tours had over 35 people .On Viking tours the guide and every person/passenger on the entire ship has an audio box in their stateroom. You can hear every word that the tour guide has to say. On the Celebrity excursion we were in a church and our guide was talking very loud in order for us to hear her. It was actually disrupting the people praying . NOT GOOD !!! UGLY Way Way too many people on the boat . NOT counting the crew about 3000 people . Every where you went there was TOO many people . 6 people in each hot tub every seat taken around the decks . People getting up at 7 am putting their chairs & towels out & around to save their sunning place 50 people in a small pool. 10 people in line to get ice cream . We had come off an excursion around 1 pm and wanted to go try the buffet (FOOD COURT ) . The food court must hold about 1000 people . We could NOT find a seat . We walked around every inch of the entire restaurant /food court to have lunch. We ended up eating in the Luminae which was fine . Every where you go on the first part of the cruise people are trying to sell you SPECIALTY dinners 3 for 129 dollars . It is very , very annoying . Then you cannot have a dinner with out some one taking your picture . And the same on many other places on the ship people asking you to have pictures taken. Then you find out that they are trying to sell a $250.00 dollars picture taking package up where the photos are displayed . Summary People on the Celebrity are working really hard to serve you. My biggest complaint was the Excursions (not good) and NOT being able to HEAR the tour leader. Celebrity needs to invest in a individual voice box system like Viking has . You can hear every word. Way Way to many people . Again almost every venue is way over crowded.
