For us, the warm wood-panelled Michael’s Club was a cosy getaway from the buzz of the ship. Come evening, we would retreat there for a creative cocktail or a wine and in the day, for a heart-warming cappuccino. This was one of the perks of occupying a suite. Although spacious staterooms are a given on Celebrity ships, our suite resembled a luxury hotel room with a number of perks thrown in… Priority boarding and disembarkation, a verandah with views of the trackless ocean; en suite facilities included a bath tub, a roomy walk-in closet and fresh fruit and a bottle of chilled champagne on arrival. We also had our very own Jeeves called Benjamin who offered to unpack, make spa and dining reservations, and served evening tea, coffee and pastries in our suite (unasked) on the at-sea day and materialized at the press of a telephone button. But with a one to two crew-to-guest ratio, the Celebrity ensures that all guests are well looked after.
