Just Right for Us

My husband and I just returned back from this cruise on the Celebrity Constellation.  It was a fantastic cruise.  The Constellation is the perfect size ship for us.  I am not an extreme fan of the Mega-Mega ships, because I feel that too many passengers causes the loss of that "Cruise-feel".  We loved the coziness, classic design of the Constellation.  It was small enough that you got to know the staff on board and the other passengers.  The Itinerary was amazing! Loved the ports of call mixed with just enough At Sea time.  The weather was perfect for touring - as it was not yet "beach" weather.  We also enjoyed the tours provided by Celebrity.  This cruise was to celebrate our 25th wedding anniversary  and I have to say it did the trick.  The staff on the cruise was friendly and helpful.  We had an outside cabin and it was roomy enough for what we needed.  We also have to say that this is probably one of the biggest showers we have experienced on a cruise ship.  Everything was clean and in working condition. The entertainment on the cruise was great and they probably have some of the best "cruise cast singers" that we have seen also.  Although this is only our second cruise on Celebrity, we have been on well over 40 cruises, so we are well experienced to be able to judge good from bad.  As the title of my comments states - this cruise was just right for us!

Cabin / Stateroom
Great Cabin. Had everything we needed plus a good size shower. Our cabin steward and Assistant was fantastic.

Civitavecchia (Rome), Italy
Naples, Italy
Valletta, Malta
Santorini, Greece
Kusadasi (Ephesus), Turkey
Do not miss Ephesus! Skip shopping, unless you like to barter and be hassled.
Rhodes, Greece
Mykonos, Greece
Piraeus (Athens), Greece
Large city. Acropolis is worth taking the ships tour because you can skirt the ticket lines.
Souda (Chania), Crete
Venice, Italy


The tour ratings are pretty accurate. If it states strenuous, then it will be strenuous. Don't feel like you need a tour in every port. There were three ports we didn't take a tour and it was fine. Small villages, easy to get around, unless there is something specific you want to see.
