Celebrity Cruise Line

MV Galaxy

Your Rating:Four Stars

# previous cruises: 2
Date of Trip: April 7, 2001
Itinerary: Caribbean - Southern

Yes, consider and do. However, Celebrity needs to supervise children better for their parents do not. Wonderful events planned by the cruise line were sometimes spoiled by annoying, unsupervised children. Otherwise, all was wonderful from food to room. Note, San Juan dock for Celebrity leaves much to be desired. Royal Caribbean surpassed it in a very nice area.

Public Areas
Casino was good, comparable to other ships, full at night, high table price. Lounges were comfortable but not attended in high numbers. We left for lack of a crowd. Michaels lounge outside of dining hall was best but service was slow, maybe that is good for they did not PUSH drinks. Would like to have seen happier, dancing, singing Jamaican type waiters around pool. They were so quiet! Band at pool was super. No, walk around promenade was not as good as Majesty of Seas on Royal Caribbean. Upstairs, downstairs, confusing-- around pool track, very small.

Food and Service
All food, all places, all times super, SUPER!

Plenty of closet space, big enough and hot shower, cool hair dryers, bring your own!! Very quiet, you could sometimes hear nearby rooms, but very quiet.

Shows and entertainment was EXCELLENT. We laughed and felt we were in Las Vegas again. Staff was very good.

Yes to above but again, people don't use child care, they seem to let their children go and they communicate w/walkie talkies which I thought was against ship policy. Ports were at all islands, Barbados, St. Thomas, St. Lucia, Antigua. Beautiful and very good cruise packages to tour or easily to get off ship and walk. Chose this because they were only at sea one day. There was a big health club and lovely spa.

Who Goes
Passengers were mostly middle age, 30 to 65 (is that middle age? Many families were traveling together. We were 50ish and without our children. This was my second cruise and my husbands first. He was not to go again to either Alaska or Hawaii or both but definitely fly from Fla not San Juan. Thanks.w.
