My opinion is that this ship is an ideal introduction to cruising. 24/7 buffet, and freestyle dining in the main restaurant, great entertainment, very friendly staff and NO COMPULSORY TIPPING to worry about. You don't say where you are going, and obviously some areas are on average rougher than others but if you take some travel sickness tablets with you I'm sure you'll be fine, and if not the ship's doctor will have injections which are very effective. There is possibly slightly more vibration on the older vessels than the more modern but it does depend to some extent on where you are on the ship. I must say it didn't bother me for two trips on the ship for a total of three weeks. Don't worry, you'll have a great time - let us know how you get on.

This is a lovely ship in my opinion, we have been on her twice and the staff are wonderful, food good and entertainment is excellent....there was a vibration problem at the rear of the ship but we chose cabins forward of midships and never heard a thing!! Our favourite deck is Deck 6 so we can just nip out on deck first thing in the morning to see where we are!!!(the nearest to getting a balcony on this ship as there aren't any) She is not new and flashy but is clean and comfortable nothing to worry about.

I have sailed on the Celebration - going back on her in July - and the Spirit and both do have a slight vibration problem but if you are in a Cabin that is forward or midship then this will not be as noticeable and after a couple of days, you will not even notice any vibration at all because you will be having such a fantastic time. Have a fabulous 1st cruise because once you have done it, you will want to do more.

We were on this ship in december, some people were commenting on the vibration but they were in the cabins higher up than we were. we never felt anything, even on the all day cruising. make sure you spend some time in the piano bar listening to the wonderful musicians there, enjoy.

I am going on the Celebration on the Red sea magic cruise. Can you advise what excursions are best and what is the best way to go about booking them? Thanks.

Truth Behind Your Cruise Itinerary

By Emily Watts

Emily Watts's blog

Experienced cruisers will already know by looking at an itinerary how far the ports are from the main city and towns. However those that are new to cruising may be a bit miffed when booking a cruise that visits Paris or Rome they are in fact in some cases two hours away. With Paris being the capital of France you know the only water that surrounds it is the Seine. I think the most shocking one that appears is Berlin, people are thinking this will be lovely to visit but in reality it is just ...
