What a fantastic cruise, having sailed with Carnival, Norwegian and P & O who were all great, Celebrity Reflection was outstanding. This ship is only a couple of years old, the public areas are excellent, so clean and the cabins are spot on including a...  Read More >>

Question

Report
I have never cruised with Celebrity before. And I would appreciate some help What ship would be more suitable for senior citizens or are all suitable. Also am I correct in saying that all balcony cabins are NOT view restricted. I post this question mainly to Peter Gibson but any information would be appreciated.

Further to the previous answers the restricted view cabins are sold as that and it tells you which in the brochure ? You get a good mix of age groups and sometimes a nice mix of Nationalities but not to many children. The newer Solstice class ships are big but the way they are laid out it does not feel like it very easy to find your way around . The Millennium class ships a bit smaller but quite spacious,you can expect very good food and service on all there ships. book one and enjoy it Taffy

PG of A has hit it on the head when he says "large ship" If you would prefer the intimacy of a smaller ship and are able to fly (with or without the help of a plane) I would consider Azamara - part of the Celebrity family. In my opiinion the standards are slightly higher but it does lack some of the glitz. I would not consider Cunard (unless I could afford Grill Class) and I too would avoid P&O.

Just to add that some people would be more than happy without Grill Class on the Q.M2, as we were last August, couldnt fault the accommodation, service or food, an amazing trip to New York and stay in the Waldorf for 3 nights for an amazing price! You will indeed love Celebrity too if you sail with them, we are off on our second cruise with them this summer, in a balcony cabin, can't wait! Enjoy.

PG of A here, Wilba has answered the question to his usual impeccable standards. All I can add are you will love it, Celebrity ships are head and shoulders above all other large cruise ships out there. The only one that approaches them is Queens Grill on the QM", you will however pay three times as much for a very similar suite. I have sailed 5 times with Cunard all in Queens Grill and personally it really is not as good as Celebrity. You may well ask why I cruise with Cunard why not stick to Celebrity, quite simple we do not fly and Celebrity ships are only based in the UK from May to October so if we want a cruise outside those times then it has to be Cunard - P&O is NOT an option for us. Enjoy, I am certain you will
