Celebrity Constellation

March 2016 - 5 Night Western Caribbean (Ft. Lauderdale Roundtrip) Cruise on Celebrity Constellation

Constellation Not Particularly Stellar

We did the 5-night Western Caribbean cruise over Easter week.  I traveled with my 10-year old daughter, who enjoyed the Fun Factory very much.  I noticed some definite deficiencies when compared to a December 2015 cruise on sister ship the Summit.  Food quality seems to have fallen, especially in the Ocean view Cafe, where we food breakfast and lunch to be boring and lacking any creativity.  Dinner in Ocean Liners was very good, but the price was staggering.  The Tuscan Grille was a huge disappointment for the price.  The food quality was not that good.  The staff, while pleasant and helpful, did not give off the aura of happiness that we experienced on the Summit.  The Summit captain, Captain Kate, seemed to set a high standard for friendliness that we did not experience on the Constellation.  The ship seems somewhat tired and in need of freshening.  The decor is bland.  We generally are fans of Celebrity, so maybe it was just an old ship on its last Caribbean cruise before heading to Europe and the Middle East that made the experience less than we expected.

2disneydads's Tips

King's Wharf, Bermuda - Bermuda is a lovely island, but I missed docking in Hamilton and St. George's. Dockyard has improved over the years, and there is a day's worth of activities in the Dockyard area, but you really have to get out to see all of the beauty Bermuda has to offer. I am rating Bermuda as a whole and not simply Dockyard where the ship calls. You have to get a taxi or bus and see the islands to really appreciate Bermuda.
Nassau, Bahamas - We're sort of "done" with Nassau itself, but we did a private all-day sailing trip through Shoretrips that was great. We went under sail to Rose Island, enjoyed a few hours of swimming, snorkeling (excellent reef snorkeling) and beaching, had a BBQ lunch and another sail back to Nassau.
Castaway Cay (Disney Private Island) - We did the Pelican Plunge (new water slide) and enjoyed family beach time on the newer family beach. The girls went to Scuttle's Cove (the youth center) while the adults enjoyed Serenity Bay and a cabana massage. The swimming at Serenity Bay really was serene-and the beach was beautiful.
