I've been on Princess a couple times and loved it. Im deciding between a cruise on Princess or Celebrity that have similiar schedules. How does Celebrity rate against Princess with pool games and fun daytime activities? I like the liveliness of Princess and don't really want a ship thats more settled or upper scale than that. Does Celebrity have laundromats for us to do our own laundry?

Wish I could answer your questions, but I won't be on Celebrity until December. Janfred just returned from the Solstice, maybe you could PM her. From her review, I'd say the Solstice was a great ship. I am very interested in comparing the two. I see you're going on the Emerald, she's a beauty! Did you see my pictures? She's just fabulous.

Sounds like you should stick with Princess. No laundromat on Celebrity.

Hi moonbliss. Celebrity isn't as lively with the pool games, but it's not necessarily sedate, either. I just pulled out my collection of "Celebrity Today" daily programs from Infinity (2006, E. Caribbean), and among the activities were the following: pillow pole pool party, pool basketball, basketball free throw competition, golf putting contest. These were not every day--mainly on sea days. There were also a couple of late night parties up on deck.

To round things out, there were also cognac tastings, port wine tastings, art tours, trivia, name that tune, etc.

And moonie's right--no self-service laundromats.

Let us know what you decide.
