This was our first cruise post pandemic. Celebrity were great at regular updates pre cruise on testing requirements prior to boarding. Pre cruise we uploaded proof of inoculations, and then on arrival at port our pre sail tests were checked( within 48 hours of boarding antigen test needed).Once on board you could clearly see adequate hand hygiene measures in place. Once in the cabin mask and hand gel provided.Staff wore masks all the time. The captain gave daily updates of any one testing positive for COVID. During the cruise their were 20 people said to have contracted COVID. Which out of almost 3000 people ( including crew) was amazing!We tried all the specialist restaurants and enjoyed them all, our favourites being the Tuscan and the Lawn club!We had freedom dining, where we went to the restaurant when we ready to eat, we never had to wait for a table( wether this would be so if the ship was full I’m not sure! ). The food in the Opus restaurant was good as usual. My only disappointment was the lack of quality white wines despite upgrading to the premium package. This was very different from our usual celebrity experience!All in all the cruise was as good as usual ( probably better because their were 1000 less passengers than normal).We visited several of the shows, Alfreda the female resident artist was fabulous, our favourite wereD.O.S. a Colombian duo who played at the Sunset bar, Ensemble lounge and gran£ Foyer regularly throughout the cruise.The cabins were spotless as usual with a wonderful cabin attendant who kept the room spotless!We enjoyed the experience and destinations Adriatic, Greece and Italy and have already booked our next cruise with Celebrity!Disembarking was as efficient as boarding, the only glitch was the plane being late arriving in Rome. But at least our plane arrived unlike some unlucky cruisers who arrived at the airport to find ou5 their flights had been cancelled!
