Felt like a celebrity! by briana928

Sail date: / Traveled as: Large Group
Ship: Celebrity Constellation / Destination: Europe - Northern Europe

Celebrity Constellation 14 Night Scandinavian and Russian Cruise in June of 2005 was my first cruise and it did not disappoint! The ship was beautiful and although I wasn't old enough at the time for some of the lounges and the casino there was still plenty to do! I remember the weather was unexpectedly cold and the wind was so powerful they had to tie down the chairs to keep them from flying away! That being said, we never got to enjoy the pool and we only had 1 or 2 decent days the sit on the deck, but obviously Celebrity cannot control the weather! Dinner was fabulous and I loved getting to try so many new foods! Although this cruise was primarily older men and women, Celebrity did a great job of rallying the few teenagers that were on the ship and providing us our own space and activities (I'll never forget stealing the dance floor from all the "older folk" one night with all my new friends!). Definitely a blast and I look forward to cruising again now as an adult!

Great Cruise for Running of the Bulls by iankaus

Sail date: / Traveled as: Couple
Ship: Celebrity Constellation / Destination: Europe - Western Europe

We chose this cruise because it had an overnight in Bilbao to enable us to go to Pamplona for Running of the Bulls.  The itinerary was excellent with some great stops along the way.  There is so much to see in Spain that you could take this cruise again and see completely different things.

This ship is a great size to keep interactions personal without getting too big like some of the mega-liners.  Staff would remember your drinks, ie cocktails, or specialty coffees.

Eye opening by Alicante01

Ship: Celebrity Constellation / Destination: Europe - Eastern Mediterranean

Visited several significant historical sites that are on the UNESCO list. All of the countries and ports visited contributed to the enjoyment value that the cruise ship visits.

Fantastic Experience by RVASuz

Sail date: / Traveled as: Family (older children)
Ship: Celebrity Constellation / Destination: Europe - Mediterranean

The 9 night Dalmatian Coast & Italy Cruise on the Constellation was a great one. The ports alone made this ideal but the staff, food & beverage, and entertainment made our time even better. Would recommend Celebrity based on this experience as the entire time onboard ran smoothly (from embarkation to disembarkation and everything in between).

Celebrity First Timers by KaraLenae

Sail date: / Traveled as: Couple
Ship: Celebrity Constellation / Destination: Caribbean - Eastern

This is our third cruise and we only booked with Celebrity due to the price and dates.  Both of us have cruised with Carnival and NCL before.  We did not know what to expect other than the reviews we read.  A-M-A-Z-I-N-G.  We felt like we had climbed the ladder to the top of the cruise chain.  We are in our early 40's and most of the passengers were 50+.  I saw less than a half dozen kids the entire cruise.  The ship was spectacular!  Housekeeping cleaned our room twice a day and if we couldn't dig our keys out fast enough, they were kind enough to open the door for us.  There was currency change at the front desk anytime you needed for ports of call.  The food in the dining room was delicious!  We had paid for our gratuities in advance so that we could dine anytime between 6-9 and I was glad that we had done that.  There are a few items on the ship that are a la carte, such as specialty coffee, deserts and wine.  If you keep this in the back of your mind during the cruise, its easier to pass on them if you don't want the extra charges.  There was a martini bar that had happy hour from 4-5 then after 11p where the drinks were half price!  The average alcoholic drink on the ship was $9-$12.  We did buy soda packages for the both of us and it worked out great!  We booked our excursions through the cruise line and thank goodness, because we had bad weather at one port and were cancelled.  The ship automatically refunded our excursion money right then and there.  I have nothing bad to say about Celebrity.  I felt like I was on a floating Ritz Carlton.  Customer service was superb and the ship itself was fabulous!  If you haven't cruised with Celebrity, I say DO IT!  I doubt you will ever cruise with anyone else again.  We wont.

Abu Dhabi to Singapore by MarRich

Sail date: / Traveled as: Couple
Ship: Celebrity Constellation / Destination: Other (Asia/Africa/Middle East)

We all enjoyed the itinerary. The Constellation is an older ship and, as of our cruise, needs a lot of updating! Saying that, the staff was wonderful, pleasant and quite helpful.

Food, some nights great other mediocre and then other nights, not so good. The Oceanview Cafe had an assortment, as well as the Grill, so there were lots of choices. Again, some food better than others. I have noticed that the desserts have gone WAY DOWN! 

Excursions, so so. The ones we took, really the basic ones (overviews & panoramic) were not the greatest. The guides were NOT very good and left people behind as well as, when out of the bus, only talked the the small group of people within earshot! 

We are loyal Celebrity cruisers, Elite Plus, but have noticed that the perks for being loyal have definitely gotten less. I guess there are too many of us now!

All in all, we enjoyed ourselves but did want to let people know there were some negatives.

Bahama Mamas by cruzenkaren

Sail date: / Traveled as: Singles/Friends
Ship: Celebrity Constellation / Destination: Caribbean - Bahamas

Part of our party were turned away at the gate, did not have proper I D how much proof do you need to prove who you are? Check in was smooth for those who got on, Sailing was a little rough due to a storm but the food was great and the service was excellent. Staff was very friendly and helpful. No pizza after 1:00 PM that was sad. Beds were very comfortable and the room was well taken care of, no towel animals on our bed, missed that.

Italy & Adriatic by HeddaGarbled

Sail date: / Traveled as: Couple
Ship: Celebrity Constellation / Destination: Europe - Mediterranean

The thing I liked most about the cruise was sailing into and out of the ports. How lovely to peep round the curtains first thing in the morning to yet another lovely view and sit in the Sky lounge in the evening with a glass of wine as we sailed away.

Barcelona to Venice 9 Night Cruiise by plymouth1943

Sail date: / Traveled as: Couple
Ship: Celebrity Constellation / Destination: Europe - Mediterranean

There are no telephone in terminal in Venice. We we found a greeter who was able to contact the hotel and schedule time and pick up location for us. The Port of Venice is very large and may have eight or more large cruise ships in port at one time. We booked two nights at the Crowne Plaza Venice East-Quarto d'Altino. The hotel provides a Cruise Package with Airport and Cruise Port pick up. The hotel sent a Mercedes van to pick us at Parking Lot #3 near the entrance to the port. When we checked out of the hotel at about 9:00 A.M. the hotel had four vans loaded with passengers taken us to the airport in a convoy. The hotel is about twenty miles from the City of Venice and about 10 miles from the airport. There is a train station about 1 1/2 blocks from the hotel that has regularly schedule trains to and from Venice St. Lucia and other stations for about two Euros each way. The water buses can be boarded at the St. Lucia station.

First time experience of cruising by makeitso

Sail date: / Traveled as: Couple
Ship: Celebrity Constellation / Destination: Europe - Mediterranean

Very slick operation, with all staff well trained in customer relations. The food choice and quality was excellent. Our room met our needs, although the whole boat is looking a little dated and tired now.

Wonderful first cruise by stripeytop

Sail date: / Traveled as: Couple
Ship: Celebrity Constellation / Destination: Europe - Mediterranean

For our first cruise this was perhaps beyond what we expected. All ports were excellent and the experience on board very positive. I will definitely consider joing another Celebrity cruise ship in the future.

Crossing the Atlantic to the Island of the Flowers by KaeandBobWise

Sail date: / Traveled as: Couple
Ship: Celebrity Constellation / Destination: Transatlantic

We had a very relaxing and interesting cruise, with plenty of activities on board during the ten days at sea. My wife, who always says she has no artistic ability, took up watercolor painting with the help of several workshops and some advice from fellow artist-passengers. The island of Madiera was a beautiful port of call. We could have happily spent two or three days there. The service and amenities aboard ship were top-notch, just as we've found with Celebrity in the past. Unfortunately, the bow and stern areas of the boat deck were closed off, so you could only walk the boat deck by staying on one side or passing back and forth through the elevator lounges. There seems to be a general trend in the industry toward minimizing public spaces, which I regret. I want to travel on a ship, not a stack of balcony cabins.

Great ship and wonderful cruise by triock

Sail date: / Traveled as: Couple
Ship: Celebrity Constellation

As always celebrity did not disappoint, the ports were exciting and the staff were excellent. The over nights were great and allowed more time to explore. The Christmas and New Year parties were fab. The only criticism would be the shows were hot and miss.

Lovely cruise by Rorysmum

Sail date: / Traveled as: Couple
Ship: Celebrity Constellation / Destination: Other (Asia/Africa/Middle East)

Think we would have enjoyed our cruise much more had I have been well enough to enjoy it. Unfortunately we spent most of our vacation in our cabin. It was well organised and clean. Staff were amazing! To be honest, I was dreading this cruise after reading somsny negative reviews, but thankfully that wasn’t the case. I am very hard to please and am the first to complain if something is not to my standard. No negative comments on our part.

Good morning Vietnam by cferry

Sail date: / Traveled as: Couple
Ship: Celebrity Constellation / Destination: Other (Asia/Africa/Middle East)

Just got back from this cruise, the  Celebrity Constellation staff and crew were fabulous. Our favourite part was Ho Chi minh City and Nha Trang beach, runner up was Ko Samui in Thailand. As far as the ship itself, our favourite part was the food quality, definitely above average service was efficient and polite. The only downside really is the time it takes to drive into some of the destinations from port, can be up to 2 hours by bus but if its your first time and you get a guided tour its worth it so you make sure to maximize your time and see the best sites.

Two thumbs up here!
