Suggest that you do lots of research on sites like cruise critic which will tell you all you need to kno.

I traveled on the Galaxy a few years ago and it was my first time with Celebrity. The ship is very glitzy in comparison to other cruise ships, but not in an offensive way. We had such a good time we booked to go with Celebrity on our return and have enjoyed a number of cruises with them since. I understand Galaxy is due for a refit next year, so it would be worth checking when that will be. If you are visiting Turkey, I would recommend a trip to Ephesus if you are docking in Kusadasi. Kind regard.

This class of ship has been more reliable than the others and after the refit, which is well overdue according to some, she will be great. There are some very interesting ports of call in that area most of which can easily be done on your own or with some companions. My suggestion would be to look, as is mentioned at the "cruise-critic" site but also to spend some time looking at the tours offered by Celebrity, RCI, Princess, and the like and pick out the bits you like then make up your own tours with trains, taxis, or walking. That way you do it cheaper, you are not restricted by the slowest, and you don't have to stop at those monotonous "tourist shops" (if you don't want to). Like I say ...Great ship, terrific cruise line, and a wonderful part of the world....Leanne Down.

By Anne Eaves

Anne Eaves's blog

My husband and i have recently returned from a cruise on Symphony of the Seas to celebrate our 25th Wedding Anniversary and without a doubt it was one of the best cruises we have done. We arrived in Barcelona on 27th April and had one night at the Onix Liceo Hotel which is centrally located about half way down Las Ramblas on a side street, and is a great location for a pre cruise stay if you are looking for something central.We took a taxi to the port the following morning where the check i...

I’ve just come back form a cheeky three night mini cruise with the girls so I thought I would give you a sneaky peak at some of our best bits.We were a large party of twelve with a mixture of friends, some who had met through Some of us are still here but others had moved on to pastures new, so it’s always nice to catch up with everybody to see what people have been up to and what’s new in their lives. Not everybody knew each other which was also nice as we all...
