December 2014 - Celebrity Constellation to Caribbean - Eastern
This is our third cruise and we only booked with Celebrity due to the price and dates. Both of us have cruised with Carnival and NCL before. We did not know what to expect other than the reviews we read. A-M-A-Z-I-N-G. We felt like we had climbed the ladder to the top of the cruise chain. We are in our early 40's and most of the passengers were 50+. I saw less than a half dozen kids the entire cruise. The ship was spectacular! Housekeeping cleaned our room twice a day and if we couldn't dig our keys out fast enough, they were kind enough to open the door for us. There was currency change at the front desk anytime you needed for ports of call. The food in the dining room was delicious! We had paid for our gratuities in advance so that we could dine anytime between 6-9 and I was glad that we had done that. There are a few items on the ship that are a la carte, such as specialty coffee, deserts and wine. If you keep this in the back of your mind during the cruise, its easier to pass on them if you don't want the extra charges. There was a martini bar that had happy hour from 4-5 then after 11p where the drinks were half price! The average alcoholic drink on the ship was $9-$12. We did buy soda packages for the both of us and it worked out great! We booked our excursions through the cruise line and thank goodness, because we had bad weather at one port and were cancelled. The ship automatically refunded our excursion money right then and there. I have nothing bad to say about Celebrity. I felt like I was on a floating Ritz Carlton. Customer service was superb and the ship itself was fabulous! If you haven't cruised with Celebrity, I say DO IT! I doubt you will ever cruise with anyone else again. We wont.
