Only off the celebrity Constellation on Sunday, great ship for its age, little disappointed with the lack of entertainment that goes on past 11.30pm, the silent disco’s were great fun, the shows in theatre were good, the onboard bands were very good also, just check daily as they move about venues quite a bit..
we only ate in the overview cafe which suited us as my Mrs is a fussy eater, found the food to be hot most days, plenty of choice .. loved the stir fry station, also the Asian food was very good. The mrs enjoyed the steaks and chicken, the deserts were a let down,cakes were always soft/soggy in middle, did enjoy the hot desert though with custard.
We were in a inside stateroom on deck 3 which was fine.
We didn’t book any excursions via celebrity so can’t comment on them, however I did hear plenty say they were very good, we just chose to get off in each port, we were able to borrow a wheelchair for my wife which meant we were able to do things at our own pace which suited us, great ports of call during cruise.
Venice (embarked ship)
Very poor efficiency in processing, Was in line for about 45mins
Civitavecchia Rome (disembarked ship)
If you can make sure you have early flight booked as you will be expected to leave ship b4 9.30 at latest, you can pay to extend your stay(we did this) , but not worth it as pools remained closed till new passengers got onboard. We were allowed to stay onboard till 30 mins before it sailed again though, because we had transfers booked through celebrity we got a refund as we did not want to sit in airport for 11hrs before our flight, we then just booked our own private taxi transfer which was good.
For any fellow smokers reading this.
