This 2,158-passenger ship heralded in Celebrity Cruises' Millennium class and made waves for its cutting-edge, contemporary design. The highlight: a 25,000-square-foot spa that is one of the largest and loveliest at sea. The whole ship is sleek and stylish, and refurbishments have kept the look clean and modern.
What We Love
Incredible Design: This ship is decked out in contemporary furnishings and includes a museum-quality art collection. Even the glass elevators have ocean views.
Attentive Service: They're wonderfully unobtrusive, but crew members do a great job of thinking on their feet and are willing to handle special requests.
Best Known For
Titanic Tie-in: History lovers will enjoy the decor of the fancy 134-seat Olympic restaurant, which includes decorative wood paneling from the White Star Line's RMS Olympic ocean liner, built in 1911 as a sister ship to the ill-fated Titanic.
Nice Staterooms: Most cabins have ocean views and balconies. For those looking to upgrade, the penthouse suites are some of the largest at sea.

Who It's Best For
Middle-Age Couples: Although there are kids playrooms on board, this is a ship best suited for couples ages 40 and older who are looking for nice dinners, maybe some dancing, and a relaxing time together.
Don't Say We Didn't Warn You
Expect Crowds: You'll find many cushy, intimate spaces, but this is still a big ship with plenty of people on board — and that's noticeable at times.
