November 2015 - 4 Night Bahamas (Ft. Lauderdale Roundtrip) Cruise on Celebrity Constellation
First - casino is non-smoking as is most of the ship! This was our second Celebrity cruise. We would have never booked with them again had we not had an excellent experience the first time. Due to the check-in debacle caused by port staff, many guests were unhappy before they even boarded the ship. That may have set the tone for many guests. Once we were onboard, we proceeded to have a GOOD TIME, as you always should. You're on vacation! One thing that was most disappointing was to hear was the number of guests complaining about things, that the onions for their omelet weren't cooked enough or they didn't have the particular type of wine they wanted, etc. Get over it! They don't have the beer I prefer either, but there were plenty of other options. My biggest complaint would be that there is no dedicated "line" for food, meaning you can be waiting patiently and people just cut in from all over where the food is actually located. I found this to be the case no matter what area of the buffet I was at. People, be respectful of others. You see the line, go to the end of it. Second complaint is a cruise ship regular one. Saving pool chairs and never showing up to sit in them. That will never go away. All of the staff on the ship were very friendly and accommodating. The food at the buffet wasn't always at the correct temperature and they easily ran out of items at the carving station. The salad bar area had many excellent options for toppings. One evening in the dining room, my husband's prime rib arrived cold but that was an isolated incident. Dining room food was very good. Try the beef cheeks! During the muster drill, there was no control over the guests, everyone was talking loudly and you were unable to hear the instructions. Overall, we had a very good time. How can you not when you're out on the beautiful ocean!
