The Constellation has its ups and its downs. Aqua class rooms continue to be very nice, but some of the frills such as daily water and iced tea have been taken away. That seems so petty by the cruise line. The Persian garden doesn't compare to the ones on Silhouette and Reflection. It doesn't even have individual beds, rather a long bench seat that doesn't look out at the ocean. The buffet is overly crowded with long lines and many empty dishes. Don't even attempt to eat there when you get there the first day. It's a mad house.
Aside from those few flaws, the ship is lovely...older but well cared for. The cruise director is fun and the Captain makes himself available and known through various activities. Blu restaurant is first rate. While my husband and I ate at both Ocean Liners and the Tuscan Grille, we wound up liking the service, staff, and intimacy of Blu even more that the other specialty restaurants. The shows were generally good and easy to get into if you chose the early show. The atmosphere was friendly, fun and sociable.
It would be nice if different ports were available and an overnight stay. Perhaps in Nassau where safe nightlife is available.
