Please do not bring children on to this ship as the camp counselors are extremely rude to parents and children. They think they are on vacation. My daughter informed me the counselors told the kids if you do not behave we kick you out of camp an don't care what your parents say. My daughter loved to go to the camp to be with her friends however, was always upset by the attitude of two of the counselors Mindy and Natlie. I one night sat behind the camp when in the theater and noticed a boy telling Mindy (camp counselor) he was unsure if he wanted to go in to the show. Mindy told him go in or leave now the boy went in the theater. After ten minutes they boy informed Mindy he wanted to leave she told him no leaving during a show. The boy told her he had 'sign in and out privileges' but she made him stay. He asked that his mom be called but Mindy held the phone and said no again you have to sit in the show and not leave. The boy cried for 45 minutes during the show. I was ready to call security on her actions. It would have been so much easier to call his mom or let him sign himself out. My daughter said see mom she is just mean.

The food was great.

Our room was a dream with an execellent room attendant.

The activities were great.

Great shore excurisions however we were unable to enjoy as camp infomed me of their policy (not Celebrity's policy) of a 6 hour rule for kids to stay in the camp. This is unheard of! I have travelled all over the world by crusie with my family.

This this is a dream for a family to take. We travel alot with my daughter and we reley on the kids camp when she does not want to leave the ship. We were very disappointed to hear they have a 6 hour rule and either you and your family stay on the ship or take your kids with you. We were informed of this by Natalie, the director of the kids camp. I explained to her the kids pay full price and the camp is their entertainment. All the kids meet at the camp how can you tell a kid when they are playing with their friends on a sea day that they have to leave because their 6 hours are up? Celebrity really needs to correct this.
