I recently had the pleasure of embarking on a wonderful adventure on a Caribbean cruise with Celebrity. We sailed on the Celebrity Eclipse out of Miami on a 6 day journey, stopping in Grand Cayman, Cozumel and Costa Maya.
I chose this particular cruise because I love Celebrity Cruises and it also fit into my family’s schedule. In total, from my cousins and aunts, we were a party of 12.
I flew into Miami a day early and stayed at the Hilton Miami airport hotel, they had a free shuttle from the airport to the hotel. The following morning, my friend Carolina, whom I invited on this cruise with me, met me at the hotel and we took a taxi over to the cruise port together. With the tip it was a $20 cab ride.
The embarkation process was painless and went pretty quick. We got right on the ship and took our luggage to the cabin and set out to find the rest of my relatives.
We met with my whole family for our scheduled early dinner time. The food was excellent! I had nothing to complain about there, everything I tasted was delicious.
The first port day in Grand Cayman, I went to the beach and after spending only 2 hours in the sun, I was lobster red! So no beach for me for the rest of the cruise!
In Cozumel, my family along with Carolina, enjoyed the fish spa! You sit down on these benches and after the staff scrub your feet and legs with a brush and water to remove any lotions, or creams you may have on them, you stick your feet into an aquarium of little hungry fish and they nibble all of the dead skin off your feet. Carolina and my relatives thoroughly enjoyed it. They said their skin felt renewed and soft.
The next few days were spent shopping in Costa Maya for gifts and laying by the pool under an umbrella.
Overall the cruise was great, we went to some of the evening shows, hung out with some of the entertainers, had lots of laughs, great food, and excellent staff. It went by way too fast. From the entertainment to the food, to the wonderful people you meet Celebrity cruise is a must do!
I can’t wait until my next one!
