August 2014 - Celebrity Constellation to Europe - Northern Europe
The itinerary was wonderful. We had never been to any of the ports before. Our cabin with a balcony was certainly worth the extra cost. The cabin steward was friendly, paid attention to small details, and was always responsive to our requests. The food was outstanding, especially at dinner. We utilized the dining room on level 5 (small tables) which worked out very well. The wait staff was attentive and competent. We made use of the workout room. It was well equipped, has outstanding views, and was never crowded. On the negative side, the ship could use some refurbishing (especially the furniture and carpeting). I thought the shore excursions were overpriced and too short to really experience the ports we visited. Overall, we had a good experience, but I am not convinced that Celebrity Cruise Lines is an upscale provider.
