Return to cruising

We have cruised with Celebrity many times so it was great to be back on board. The COVID-19 protocols were in place, it was evident all staff were trained in the new requirements. The ship was spotless, Celebrity have always provided exceptional service in housekeeping. Every member of staff we met were so eager to provide us with the best experience after their long lay off due to Covid. We used Aquaclass this time, the food in Blu was perfection, superb menus and quality. We did use Oceanview cafe, good choice all served to you. The main dining at lunchtime provided the same menus as 2 years ago so there needs to be an update! It is frustrating with these ships as they persistently present menus more suited to the American cultures. There seems to be very little inside into traditional British menus. Anyway it was a super first cruise back, thoroughly enjoyed by us both.
One note, we arrived in Belfast to be informed we were not allowed to go ashore unless we used a tour. This was down to the Port Authorities so be aware in these early stages with the pandemic still present be aware of late changes wherever you go.
