My daughters and I were on the Western Caribbean cruise of the Celebrity Zenith on March 11-16. Although we had a wonderful time in general, I was a bit disappointed in the general feel of the cruise... it wasn't the "style" of cruise we had expected from what we'd read online. We had chosen Celebrity because I got the impression that there would be fewer children on board, a little stricter dress code (we wanted to dress up, and wanted to be around others who were dressing up), a more classy feel than those billed as the "fun ships." I had been worried that the cruise would be almost "too old" of a crowd, considering I was bringing my 24 and 25 year old daughters, but that was far from the case... it looked like Daytona Beach on board there! There were very few children on board, but the ship was full of spring breakers, and I mean FULL! The pool area and outside deck lounge chairs were always full. If you didn't get there early in the morning, you were hard-pressed to find a chair that didn't have a person in it or personal items "saving it." (This was a particular problem in that people were leaving their stuff there to save their chairs while going off to lunch or shopping or to the casino as well) The behavior at the poolside by some of the students got way out of hand, and I didn't see any attempts by the staff to tone it down until the last day (though I may not have been there during other confrontations). Numbers of students were very noticeably drunk, and there was both reckless (safety issues) and somewhat lewd behavior that went unchecked. We took to dragging lounges (when we could get them) up to the front of the ship where we could relax in peace. We were very disappointed to see the dress code slip, as we saw people walking through the main dining rooms in very casual clothing, including shorts. I was under the impression that if a passenger didn't meet the dining room dress code he would be diverted to the casual dining facilities, but this was apparently not done on this cruise. One of my daughters spoke with the cruise director towards the end of the cruise and he said they were shocked at all the spring breakers and did normally have that kind of crowd. He said Celebrity has never marketed to the spring break crowd but that apparently a couple of travel agents had taken it upon themselves to do so this year, and she got the impression from him that they were going to try to nip that in the bud somehow. My thinking is that if they wanted to do so, they probably should have done a little more to enforce common rules of decorum and safety, and should have enforced the existing dress code. I don't want to sound like a complainer, as we still did have a nice time. The service, the entertainment, and the food were excellent (my daughter was delighted that they had a complete vegetarian menu). We only used the formal dining for dinner, and used the casual dining for breakfast and lunch. Having breakfast outside on the back deck was a wonderful way to start the day!

I haven't finished putting titles/comments on the pictures, but the two ports of call were Georgetown, Grand Cayman and Key West.
