Has anyone recently sailed on the Celebration out of Jax Florida? We were wondering how it might compare to the Sensation, Elation?? We are considering this cruise to hold us over until our Liberty cruise in May!! Any comments will be appreciated. Thanks

Hi there
we sailed on the Celebration in August.
It is the oldest ship in the Carnival fleet (1987). Hence it does not compare to a ship like the Victory. Always keep that in mind.
I'll give you my pro's and con's.
Pros:
- More personal/interaction with the staff (waiters, cabin steward, maitre d')
- Better food quality
- Less line up at shops, photo, buffet
- quick checkin at Jaxport (no other ships are there)

Cons:
- small and confined space (no 9 story atrium)
- less amenities
- some areas still look like 80'ish style
- biggest con for me was the vibration of the
ship and engine noise. Bring earplugs for
the night

All in all we had a great time, because we knew from the start what to expect. Go with an open mind and you will have a great cruise.

Thank you so much..we went on the Sensation and enjoyed! With a vacation state of mind I feel like you can have fun any where..! I was hoping that the size of the ship wouldn't make it to rocky..Thanks again..
