Full Review:

Having sailed with RCCL my daughter and I were a little uneasy about what to expect with Thomson/Celebration.
Do you know what - we had the best of holidays!!
Cabin basic but clean and lots of storage (don't forget to look under the bed). Like most hotels not enough clothes hangers so if you have room take your own!
Bathroom also basic but fine and the shower did its job perfectly.
Dining and food very good
Entertainment good
We obviously did the cruise for the ports of call and we enjoyed all of them (some are long and a little bit hurried) but just go with the flow and ejoy it all - thats what you are there for
Service was excellent (especially Jerry and Melanie in the restaurant and Harold in self-service)

Cruise Positives:
Everything really - We went to have a good time and see the sights and being on a small ship meant we met lots of very nice people and thoroughly enjoyed it all. If there was another sightseeing cruise that suited us we would certainly use again Fabulou

Cruise Negatives:
We personally did not really want to visit the "tourist shops" following sightseeing and would rather have spent more time on sites. Yes things are a little rushed but there is a lot to cram in so we just got on with it.
