Celebrity Cruise Line

MV Zenith

Your Rating:Four Stars
Reviewed by: Werner-Christian Woehrle
# previous cruises: 31 to 40
Date of Trip: November 23, 2003
Itinerary: Caribbean

Very good 4 Stars Ship, with excellent food and service in the dining room in the evening, excellent cabin space and service, excellent route, but a little bit cramped buffet area, not so spacious as the Millenium Class and some problems with the facilities in Deck 4 inside. Passengers from US, Ii booked the cruise via Internet in USA, only 12 Germans on Board (did not need more...), experienced and friendly crew. Very good relation between price and what we got for it.

Public Areas
The ship is comfortable, but the show lounge in the lower deck has no staggered seats, the show lounge is 2 decks high, on the Millenium Class it is 3 Decks and all seats are staggered. Shows are on American taste.

Food and Service
The food in the dining room and the service are excellent, the buffets are some repetitious, they are better on former cruises with the same company. Every night alternative dining on one side of the buffet restaurant with service, on the other Sushi Bar. Grill station with hot dogs, burgers etc. outside. Salad bar and fresh made pizza and noodles inside. Plenty of coffee, tea and alcohol-free drinking automats for free, soft ice station. Great gala buffet one evening of the cruise. The crew is working very good.

Very good isolation, plenty of space, everything you can want was provided, great and good French Bed. But: Some Problems with the vacuum system, it was twice in 14 Nights to repair, at the reception they told me, that this problem is in Deck 4 generally.

The entertainment is on American Taste, not on ours, it is good and my American table neighbors enjoy it, but this is an point where I would prefer an German Ship.

Plenty of activities all the day. 2 Pools outside, 3 Whirlpools, Health Club, no Children on Board. Big Fitness Room, well equipped.

We stop at Costa Maya/Mexico, Roatan/Honduras, Port Limon/Costa Rica, Colon/Panama, Grand Cayman, Freeport/Bahamas, Key West. Cruise from and to Jacksonville, an nice American City.

Who Goes
I sit with my wife at an table of 8, with 3 American couples. All are nice people, no question, I would invite them all. Excellent service by Henry from Poland and his assistant from Indonesia. Excellent cuisine by German Chief Cook and his Crew. The Crew was one of the best in my Career with 40 Cruises in 23 Years.
