Helpful Vote

5 out of 5

1st Cruise was Relaxing!

Sail Date: March 16, 2009

Reviewed: 7 years ago

Traveled As: Couple

Room Type: Balcony

This ship had many activities. Even though my spouse and I did not utilize the activities, we had a relaxing and enjoyable time. No towel animals, just great old fashioned luxury and impeccable service from the staff. The passenger was always right, always aimed to please. Voice your concerns once, and they make it right!

Pros: Entire process - The service was awesome!

Cons: Other passengers, lots of impatient seniors.

Recommends Celebrity Constellation? Yes!

Ship Quality
Cleanliness was their virtue. Always promoting safety and health standards. Always saw maintenance staff making repairs, and others working, but still without hindering the passengers in any way.
Food and Dining
We never went hungry and the buffet had excellent sushi every night. When you were too exhausted to get cleaned up for dinner, it was a hard decision to make. Great food vs. Getting a Shower and sitting through a 2 hour, 5 course meal.
Cabin / Stateroom
Balcony and Concierge Service is a must if you like quiet breakfasts and time alone. We spent quite a lot of time in our room, adequate sizing and comfort. Don't think we can settle for less for our next cruise.
Service and Staff
They remembered our names.
Variety of activities, shows, etc. I anticipated the daily news provided at turndown each evening.
Children's Programs
We purposely took Celebrity X cruise for the older crowd. There were children/teenagers on this cruise, but they were well attended to at all times. Out of sight and out of range.
Puerto Limon, Costa Rica
Poverty is big here, town and markets are not very interesting. Take a small tour.
Don't Miss: Must take a tour or local taxi, otherwise is disappointing.
Cozumel, Mexico
This is a dont miss destination. Take a tour around the island in car or dune buggy, shopping and snorkel. CHEAP and beautiful! Fun, safe, clean and relaxing. But too much pressure from shops to get customers inside.
Don't Miss: Dune Buggy/Snorkel/Beach Combo tour! Drive around the island.
George Town, Grand Cayman
Clean and simple port. Geared more towards the duty free shopping, jewelry, emeralds, name brand goods.
Don't Miss: Parasailing was nice here.
Colon, Panama
You must take a tour in this town to see the Panama Canal/Locks. Otherwise the city is so poor and dirty to take in on your own.
Don't Miss: Panama Canal and Train across the country
Cartagena, Colombia
Safer than what others thought.
Don't Miss: Just touring on your own - beach, look for a Churrasco Steak house!
