Ship: Galaxy

Sailing Date: November 3rd, 2003

Itinerary: Eastern Caribbean

Our cruise on the Galaxy was or third Celebrity cruise; Previous ships were the Meridian & Horizon when owned by Chandris. The service, food & attention to detail have declined since Royal Caribbean acquired the line, but the price of liquor, bottled water & a bottle of wine with dinner will add $100 per day to your cruise.

The port of Baltimore is convenient but has no provisions to accommodate passengers when ships are later arriving. You park your car & wait for buses to pick up passengers or return after sightseeing the "Beautiful Dundalk" section of Baltimore. Parking is $7 /day (cash only). When arriving by limo or bus, you are dropped at parking lot & left seating on your luggage while disembarking passengers are transported; late ship arrivals & disembarkation seems to be the norm for Baltimore. Scheduled boarding 2:30 PM but boarded at 5:00 PM to complimentary champagne

We found the entertainment, movies & activities above average; we found the $10 martinis in the martini bar excellent but serve then with canap├ęs not breadsticks.

Our return to Baltimore was scheduled for 10:00 AM; We disembarked at 6:00 PM, Then the nightmare of finding our luggage, a porter to move the luggage to a bus which would transport us to a dark unmarked parking lot & your on your own to find & load you car.
