Number of Cruises: 5
Cruise Line: Carnival
Ship: Carnival Celebration
Sailing Date: February 25th, 2006
We left out of Jacksonville, FL on Feb. 25, 2006. The airport transfers set up by Carnival went well.
The ship was old. It was much smaller than other ships we have been on. Food was average--I guess better if you like seafood (which my husband and I do not). This cruise was great if you are on a budget--do not expect luxury. The crowd was 40+ (with a lot of senior citizens). This didn't bother us because we did not go to part--we went to relax.
The dining rooms were clean. Like other cruises the best food is at the sit down restaurants.
Ship was very rocky compared to the other cruises we had been on. I think it is because it is one of the smallest ships Carnival has. Think after another year, Carnival should retire Celebration.
Comedy shows were funny. Only went to the rated "R" shows at midnight. Do not go to these shows if you are offended easily- there is cursing and sexual undertones. The music was pretty good also. The casino was average, not too good on slot payouts. Enjoyed the Jaded Monkey penny machine a lot. Husband said tables were good.
Housekeeping kept our room tidy. Our housekeeper gave us great advise--do not set your bags out the night before because of the way they unload. If you can carry them, do so. You can start unloading at 8:00 a.m. and be back to the airport by 8:45 a.m..
Overall I'd rate this cruise a 6 out of 10.
