10 Night Ultimate Caribbean (Ft. Lauderdale Roundtrip)
Sail Date: March 27, 2009
Ship: Celebrity Constellation
Cabin Type: Balcony
Traveled As: Couple

The ship was old. However, the staff were constantly in a mode of maintenance.

We were not too happy with an additional charge of $11.50 per day per person charge. We contacted the front desk and they removed the fees. This allowed us to tip as we saw fit.

The alcoholic drinks were expensive - $6.00 + 15% tax for a beer! It was robbery for a Corona.

We are planning a trip to St. Maarten in February 2010. It was the most beautiful beach. Only drawback --- the beach peddlers selling their wares. It was VERY annoying and the guides were not interested in keeping them away from our area.
Don't Miss: The Afternoon Beach Break was the best!

Do NOT book the train trip. It was really bad. It was billed as a 3 hour train ride, however, the first 45 minutes were on a bus. We didn't pay $99 to see where the bank president lived, the local chicken stop, bakery, gas station or car dealers were located. The train ride went through a lot of towns and villages, which it was so lovely to see their garbage- literally. Yes, "scenic" is subjective, however, garbage/trash is just that no matter what country you are traveling through on vacation. Oh, after the train ride, the fee to use the pubic restrooms at the dock were $1.00 per person so use the bathroom on the train - if you can find it. On a positive note, after our written complaint, we were issued a 50% refund.
