My family and I went on the Celebration in August this year. The service was outstanding!! The ship was more than I had expected. I had read several reviews and I was so afraid that I had made a big mistake booking the ship. I was so relieved. There are some people that you can't please no matter what you do. I can't imagine anyone not having a great time. It is an older ship but is well kept. Before we got home my 16 year old daughter was begging to go back again. We leave this Sunday on the Victory but she wanted to go back on the Celebration. I found out that the Celebration is leaving the Carnival fleet next year so I am glad we got to go when we did. I have absolutely no complaints. I think you will have a very nice time.
