Sail Date: Jan 2020
Cabin: Penthouse Suite

My husband and I usually cruise Celebrity but chose this cruise for its itinerary and the reputation of excellent food and service . Unfortunately we were disappointed by both .

The embarkation was a disaster .

Due to high winds in Cape Town the ship was late in arriving in dock . In fact over a day late but it did not warn passengers

Cabin Review

Penthouse Suite

The room was clean and comfortable if a little old fashioned .

The shower worked well and we had a bath.

The balcony was disappointingly small for a suite class

As mentioned above , the air conditioning did not cool at night

Port Reviews

Walvis Bay

The pelican and seal trip was very enjoyable, organised by the cruise .

The second trip to the sand dune and scenic drive around area was cancelled as we lost one day here

Port Elizabeth

Did not dock so missed the elephant safari .

Very disappointed

Richards Bay

Game park

Very good !!
