Celebrity Cruise Line

MV Galaxy

Your Rating:Five Stars
Reviewed by: Donna Ruggles
# previous cruises: 10 to 20
Date of Trip: June 11, 2003
Itinerary: Caribbean - Eastern

This is for those searching for elegance, sedate atmosphere, personable staff, service and excellent food. If this is what you are looking for you will love this. If not,....better try another cruise line.

Public Areas
Public rooms are in excellent condition and all of them are enjoyable. There is not a walk around promenade but having had a balcony suite we couldn't have cared less. We did not use the pool or the casino.

Food and Service
The lido cafe food is somewhat exotic. But if you are adventuresome you will enjoy it. The service was tops in all restaurants with plenty of assistants everywhere for those in need. The dining room cannot be beat. WE were seated with another handicapped couple and it made for the most wonderful match up you can imagine. Thank you Celebrity.

We had a suite with balcony. The bathroom was all marble and plenty of space. More than enough closet space for an 11 day cruise. The furniture and amenities were all of high quality. Not enough can be said about the butler service.

The cruise director Susan Woods was tops and treated us like family. The entertainment was far superior to what I had expected from what I had read. Perhaps not the grand budget that some lines have for their night shows but quite fine just the same. The best of magicians was on board.

Spent much time in the spa and thelossotherapy pool. Absolutely divine. We went to several first run movies and they are in a theatre with the most comfortable of chairs. Sitting on the balcony watching the world go by was a fabulous pastime, especially leaving from San Juan Puerto Rico. We participated in protestant worship on Sunday and it was very special.

Who Goes
We had so much in common with those that we met that we feel this is our cruise line of the future. Perhaps it was just good fortune. We are still in contact with some of them and yes, even some of the crew by e-mail.
