Great Adriatic Cruise on "Connie" B2B by Zip01002

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

We are an American couple in our mid-60’s who were on a B2B in the Mediterranean and Adriatic for a total of 22 nights.  We very much enjoyed the first one of our 12-night Mediterranean cruise which started on April 27 from Civitavecchia and ended on May 9 in Venice.  I posted a summary of that cruise with details about the “Constellation”, food, entertainment, service and the ports called “Very Nice Mediterranean Cruise on Connie” if you’d like to check it out.

 

This review is for the second part of the B2B which was the 10-night Adriatic cruise RT from Venice starting May 9.  It was our 14th on Celebrity and 37th overall.  Since we’d been on the “Constellation” six other times, the “Infinity” twice and the “Millennium” once, we knew the ship and its features well.

 

Our experience on the ship on this cruise was very similar to the first one of our B2B.  Our belongings were seamlessly moved from Cabin #8036 (2B Unobstructed Balcony) to Cabin #3008 (Ocean View) which were near the forward elevators on the starboard side.  The layout of both cabins was very similar with a shelf under the window where the balcony door would be.  The storage was adequate, but it would be nice to have a few more drawers in the closet.  Since there are only two hooks on the walls, we bring magnetic hooks to give us some additional options for hanging clothes and papers.

 

The food in the MDR was very good and the pizza and pasta station in the buffet were good.  The entertainment was excellent and we continued to enjoy three production shows (“iHollywood”, “The Land of Make Believe” and “Celebrate The World”) even though we’ve seen them many times.  The cast was terrific especially Robert who also was a very funny guest on Celebrity’s version of the “Tonight Show”.  Cruise Director Maarten and Activities Manager Taylor were the best team we’ve seen anywhere as they started the party and kept the fun going.  Graeme Kelleher is without question the best Captain’s Club Host we’ve ever had.  The DJs also kept playing danceable music in the Reflections Lounge until late several nights even though only a few couples were still there (sometimes after 2:00 am).  The overall service at all levels was great.  We’d had lots of problems with “Select Dining” on the first cruise getting tables in our preferred section, but it improved on this cruise with a couple of exceptions.  So, overall we had an excellent time.

 

As with the first cruise, we had the Classic Beverage Package as one of our included perks.  We really liked being able to get bottles of water when leaving the ship on every port call and during the day while onboard.  We also got cans of soda and glasses of OJ whenever we needed them.  In the evenings, we’d have several glasses of wine with dinner and other drinks in the theater as well as the bars and lounges.  It was really nice to order whatever you wanted and not worry about signing for anything.  It also lubricated our dancing!  Obviously, there’s a balance for drinking alcohol late at night vs. being ready to go on an excursion the next morning, but we adjusted as needed during the 22 days/nights on the two cruises.

 

There were eight ports and two days at seas on this itinerary.  We still like to do what we can on own but since we’re getting older, we did more ship’s excursions than in the past.  This time, it was pretty skewed as we only did one port completely on our own and seven with the ship.  Here’s a summary of what we did in each port:

 

We were in Venice overnight on the last day of first of our B2Bs.  We walked from the ship docked at Marittimato pier to the People Mover station.  There was a long line of people waiting to buy tickets for about $2.  We didn’t bother to use it as it wasn’t much longer of a walk into Venice and we probably got there faster than people at the end of the line (and we saved $4).  Once there, we each bought a pricey 24-hour vaporetto pass for 20 Euro (about $23) and went to Murano and Burano.  Note that it took about three hours for that route so you need to allow enough time (especially if some of the vaporettos are so packed, you’d have to wait for the next one to arrive).  The following day, we continued to use the same pass to go St. Marks.  We had the typical Venetian experience as we wandered around getting lost until we found the train station. We then took our last boat ride and returned to the ship in plenty of time for the start of the second of our B2B cruises.

 

In Koper, Slovenia, we did the “KR16 Lake Bled and Island” tour at $130 pp.  It was a little pricey, but the lake is a long distance from the port.  We’d been there in 2009 on a land tour, but that was in February so the boats didn’t go out to Slovenia’s only island.  It took several hours to get there by bus, but we enjoyed the boat ride with one man paddling with two oars.  We trekked up the steep stairs to the top of the hill, but unfortunately the church was under repair so you couldn’t go in.  However, it was still nice to get there.

 

After that part of the tour, we were offered two options:  you could stay in the town to shop, eat or just wander around or the bus would take you up to the Bled Castle.  If you opted for the castle, you could walk up a fairly steep cobblestone ramp to the ticket booth and get somewhat of a view.  For 10 Euro, you could enter the courtyard where you got the full panorama including the island.  While we were in line, a man gathered 10 people and got us in at a discount at 8 Euro each.  There were more than 10 of us from the bus so the guide could have mentioned this to us so we could have done the same within our group.

 

Once inside, there was an interesting museum, a wine cellar and an indoor restaurant plus outside tables overlooking the walls.  The restrooms were free even if you didn’t buy anything.  Even though we’d been there before, it was well worth the small additional cost (especially since we’re not shoppers and would have been a little bored in town).

 

In Zadar, Croatia, we booked the “RZ13 Krka National Park – Half Day” tour at $85 each.  We drove into the mountains for a couple of hours and finally reached the park.  There were hundreds of small and large streams and waterfalls everywhere as you walked for about an hour on a boardwalk around a loop.  About halfway out, there were some picnic tables where we had sandwiches, cookies and sodas that we brought from the ship.  It was an interesting tour although some avid photographers blocked the path many times to take a ridiculous amount of “selfies”.

 

We’d been to Split, Croatia before and seen Diocletian’s Palace and the other major sights in the town.  So, we booked the ship’s “AT08 Ancient Salona and the Town of Trogir” (aka “Roman Ruins of Salona and Trogir”) for $60 each.  It was a very gray day and drizzly, but we were able to see the ruins in Salona without getting soaked.  We walked around the area to see how large the town used to be when it was the capital of the Roman province of Dalmatia.  There was also a small museum which had free restrooms.  Unfortunately, there wasn’t time to visit the amphitheater as it was too far to see it within the time constraints on this tour.

 

We then continued to the town of Trogir which was founded about 2,300 years ago.  It’s said to be the best-preserved Romanesque-Gothic complex not only in the Adriatic but in all of Central Europe.  There were many limestone buildings and we visited several churches.  We were also treated to some Croatian songs from an acapella group of five men who were selling CDs.  After trying to stay out of the rain on the promenade, I climbed up the bell tower of the Cathedral of St. Lawrence which was included in the admission price as part of the tour.  There were quite a few stairs leading to a steep ladder and a tight squeeze to get to the highest level which offered a great view of the tiled roofs below.  The only problem was that it started to pour and the rain came flying in through the open sides of the tower.  I was soaked to the bone, but so was everyone else as they made their way back to the bus!

 

In Dubrovnik, we did the “DU10 Highlights of Dubrovnik Riviera” for $73 each.  We went to higher ground on the bus where we stopped to take pictures of the panoramic view of the walled city below.  We drove further to the Konavoski Dvori restaurant which was next to a river with some of the water routed to waterwheels.  We were served some local meat, cheese and bread plus a choice of a glass of red or white wine.  It was only about 10:00 am so it was a little early to be drinking, but it was a nice stop for a break and restrooms.

 

We continued down the coast to Cavtat, a fishing village and seaside resort, where we had about an hour of free time.  The promenade was nice and had many benches where you could rest and look out over the quiet harbor.  We then returned to Dubrovnik where we had a guided walking tour.  The streets were very crowded and noisy so we weren’t able to hear much of the commentary (even with the earbuds for the “whispers”).  Since it was early May and there were only two large cruise ships in port, we couldn’t imagine what the crowds would be like in the high summer season with many more ships there.  Dubrovnik is the classic example of the double-edged sword of cruising:  being able to see wonderful sights from the comfort of your ship vs. finding an overwhelming number of people doing the same thing which lessens the experience for everyone.

 

At that point, we decided to break away from our group and the crowds to head for the cable car station above the city.  On the stairway to get there, many shops were selling RT tickets for 120 Kuna ($18 pp), but we weren’t sure if they were higher priced than the official venue.  It turned out that they were the same price, but you still had to wait in the same queue with or w/o tickets.  It was not an original idea as there was a pretty long line when we arrived.  Some people bailed out to take a taxi up to the top which made it a little quicker, but we still waited for about 45 minutes before we got to the ticket booth.

 

There are two cable cars, one going up and one coming down.  They each hold about 35 passengers and move quickly to the top or bottom in less than 5 minutes.  Once you’re up there, you’ll get a great view of the walled city on the sea side and the mountains on the other side.  There’s a restaurant, a small amphitheater where you can eat your own food and free restrooms.  We brought sandwiches and cookies from the ship and relaxed there enjoying the views in all directions.  There was a line for going down, but it didn’t take too long.  It’s definitely worth the cost if the weather is clear.

 

Once we got to the bottom, we walked back to the city, went to the Pile Gate area and joined the short queue for the shuttle bus to the ship.  It’s free if you have any Celebrity excursion sticker or you can buy tickets if needed.  It took about 15 minutes to get back.

 

In Kotor, Montenego, we booked the “KV19 Seaside Resorts of Budva and Kotor” at $65.  On the way to Budva, the bus stopped at an overlook so we could see Sveti Stefan, the famous high-end resort island on the Montenegrin Riviera.  There was a lot of construction going on to widen the road and to build more hotels and casinos.  Once in Budva, the weather wasn’t great, but we did a walking tour to the stone fort, citadel, church and other buildings above a nice harbor and a beach with some pounding surf.  We had about an hour of free time to walk around with an option to get some food and drinks at a local restaurant.

 

We then returned to Kotor where we were led on a walking tour through the Sea Gate inside the walls.  It’s one of the best preserved medieval old towns in the Adriatic and is a UNESCO world heritage site.  The architecture was interesting and there were many shops.  If the weather wasn’t so gray and drizzly, I might have attempted to walk up the many steps to St. John’s Castle high above the city.  Maybe we’ll give that a shot next time.

 

When we were in Naples on the first cruise of our B2B, we did the ferry on our own to Capri and Anacapri.  As we’d been to Pompeii many times, we opted for the ship’s “NP06 The Ruins of Herculaneum” for $73.  We were surprised to see that the site was located in the middle of a residential neighborhood in the modern city/commune of Ercolano.  Our first view of the ruins was looking down from above into the excavations.  Our guide was great as he explained that only one fourth of the buried city has been uncovered so you got a sense of how large it was at that time.  Unlike Pompeii, it was quickly buried in ash so it was virtually untouched when it was excavated.  Casts were made of many skeletons of the people who were instantly killed by the intense heat of the eruption and are placed where they found them.  The tour was very comprehensive as we visited pretty much every street, house and building.  We’d definitely recommend it as a nice alternative to the crowds at Pompeii.

 

In Catania, Sicily, we did another ship’s excursion called “CQ21 Panoramic Catania” for $55.  Unfortunately, this was the most disappointing tour of our B2B as the city and surrounding area were very gray and rundown with litter everywhere which looked like it had been there for years.  The bus dropped us off at an overlook of the Aci Castello, a castle built on black lava almost 1,000 years ago.  We then did a “drive by” through some cities and historical areas, but we didn’t stop again.  We returned by the same route to Catania where we had a walking tour.  This was certainly better as the buildings and church exteriors were very interesting.  We also saw the Roman ruins and the fountain from the underground river that provides drinking water to the city.  Our guide also helped us to buy two deep-fried arancinis for 1.80 Euro ($2) each.  They were the size of your fist and both had rice with one having tomato added and the other with eggplant and cheese.  It was a very filling local treat and the highlight of this tour.

 

At the end of the cruise, we booked the ship’s transfer by bus to the Marco Polo airport at $34 each.  We did that to simplify things so we wouldn’t have to hassle with cabs or water taxis at the port.  We got on the Celebrity bus w/o any problems and things were looking fine.  However, when we got to the airport area, the bus stopped in a parking lot and everyone had to roll their bags up an incline in the rain with construction in progress.  There were no carts to use and really not much direction from the staff as to what to do.  Apparently, their buses are not allowed to drive to the covered airport entrance which was a surprise to us and the other guests.  Not exactly the best way to end an otherwise nice cruise!

 

All in all, we had a great time, even with so many ports in so few days.  About the only thing that didn’t please us during the cruise was Celebrity charging $12 pp for transfers from the ship’s port to some of the cities.  If they have to dock that far away, they really should be included.  We did ship’s excursions those days so we didn’t have to pay, but it’s not fair to the independent travelers.

 

In the coming ten months, we have three more cruises booked on the “Millennium” in Asia and another three on the “Solstice” in New Zealand, South Pacific and Australia.  We’re definitely enjoying our experiences with Celebrity and we hope that our satisfaction continues.

Great cruise- so so on the ports by Ncottone

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

Celebrity is an amazing cruise line and we had a blast. If you are a bit more of a drinker, I highly recommend paying the $55 + gratuities per day to pay for all-you-can-drink. Completely worth it for the amazing martini bar, wine with dinner, beers and bloody marys on the pool deck, etc. It's a really great deal considering the martini bar is roughly $10-$12 per martini. The staff is, of course, all friendly and amazing. We decided to do a short excursion in Jamaica to the Duns River Falls. We had a great tour guide and driver over to Ocho Rios but upon arrival at Duns River Falls, the wait was horrendous. There had to be about 1000 people there (I'm not exaggerating here). We waited in line for at least an hour in a crowd of people in the hot weather just to get a tour guide for the falls. One girl passed out literally right in front of me and an ambulance was called. The crowd was just too big and very disorganized. They aren't equipped to handle that many people at one time. The Duns River Falls is gorgeous and we enjoyed climbing it but again we were climbing it with hundreds of other people so it sort of takes the "nature" aspect out of it. Bring a water proof camera if you can. Otherwise the guides on the Falls take pictures and a video of your group and make you do weird cheers... if you're into that, cool. We weren't... And had no desire to pay $40 for a DVD of our climb with a bunch of other tourists in the video we don't know. Now if you are with a large group of people and you all go together, maybe it would be worth it. On to Grand Cayman. Gorgeous island and much more wealthy than Jamaica. We did the Island tour and beach day excursion. The Island Tour included a stop at what they called the "Rum Factory." The Rum factory turned out to be a 15 minute stop at a gift shop that sold rum cake and their native rum in various flavors. You can sample cake and rum and then buy it or other touristy junk. We were hoping to see them actually making the rum cake in a RUM FACTORY as they advertise. This tour also included a tour of what they call "Hell." Welcome to Hell signs are everywhere... a Devil pop-up, etc. It's of the funky rocks that were created somehow naturally and it looks of someone's version of what Hell would look like. Again, this is a tourist trap. 3-4 gift shops with t-shirts, stickers, hats, etc., with various sayings of "Welcome to Hell". We had 15 minutes to "tour" it. Not impressed. We did stop at this very wealthy metro area that had a gorgeous tower with the largest underwater scene made of small tiles. And the mall area had some fun stores but we really felt like we were in a city in the US. There were quite a few Americans and Canadians working in the stores there. It was a pretty area. Then we got to the beach. Beach and water is gorgeous of course! But they bring ALL the tourists to this same beach from ALL the cruise lines that are in port. It's majorly overloaded with other tourists and they are severely understaffed at the bars and the restaurant. Lunch was not included in our price of this excursion so we paid for our own lunch. It ended up being the equivalent of $50+ for our lunch. We had a cheeseburger, a panini sandwich, and two bottled waters. $50!?! The cheeseburger was not worth $25! A bit pricey for the food and it wasn't very tasty either... beware. Pay for the excursion that includes lunch and you may get a break on the food and it's less of a wait as well. They had a buffet set up for the groups that had lunch included so it was available immediately. In retrospect, we would have toured Grand Cayman on our own and just walked around the city. One more point to make about this stop. Grand Cayman doesn't have a dock so every ship has to take smaller boats back and forth from the cruise boat to the dock. When we were ready to head back to the boat, we saw a gigantic line of people waiting to get on the smaller boats and head back... as we were heading to the back of the line, very upset about having to wait, someone said, "Celebrity- go ahead of the line!" Celebrity had cold towels, juice, and water waiting for us on the dock, and they were running several boats back to our ship. The gigantic line was for Carnival! We were SO excited and relieved to not have to wait in that long long line! We will definitely be back on Celebrity!

Ship: Celebrity Constellation / Destination: Other (Asia/Africa/Middle East)

In all the cruise was excelent. The tendering process on the last port was very badly handled. First time for us to be so stuffed up. They only used 2 tender boats and 2 private boats. Stuff up.

Awesome Arabian Sea Cruise by linbil12

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

The ports-of-call were truly once in a lifetime experiences. The tours, while being somewhat pricey, were handled efficiently and professionally. The ship's cleanliness and staff were above average. The food in the buffet was average, while the food in the dining room was above average. The wait staff was friendly and efficient. The entertainment in the theater was better than most cruises we've been on. I would not hesitate to recommend this ship and its staff to future travelers.

Wonderful Mediterranean cruise!! by SharonHolsapple

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

We loved this cruise! Thank you for the Memorial Day celebration. This was very respectful!! We did have a suggestion about communication with our group was a problem. Most of us could not afford cell phone charges overseas. Carnival cruises had an app (Carnival Hub) you could get for $5 a cruise to connect with your group on your cell phone. That way we could text the group...We are going to the 9:00 show who wants to join us and meet them and sit with them. Our group of 56 were scattered all over the ship and we had a hard time connecting, unless we bumped in to them somewhere.

A Cruise Review: The Connie Anew by DeedeeG

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

You never forget your first cruise. Like your first kiss, the memory sweetly lingers.

It’s those warm fuzzies that drew us back to Celebrity’s Constellation in December—eight years after she introduced us to a whole new way to travel.

But those were the days of midnight buffets and chocolates on our pillow. They’re long gone and the Constellation is a different place, run by the same—but yet a very different—cruise line.

The Ship: Wearing the Years Well

The Constellation has held up very nicely since its 2002 inauguration. Its upgrade and “Solsticization” in 2013 brought new beds to the cabins, refreshed carpeting throughout, new restaurants, bars and more. It’s a handsome ship, with a commanding marble staircase dominating the Grand Foyer on Deck 3.

One of the ship’s highlights is at the very back of Deck 10, what I call the “Teak Deck” for its upgraded picnic furniture (officially, it’s the “Sunset Bar”). The little patio, like most of the ship (including rooms and balconies), is now smoke-free, enabling all of us to enjoy the view of the stern’s wake without wheezing.

The ship is compact and easy to get around; we had the layout down in a day. Its relative smallness at 91,000 tons gave it an intimate feel, which, after many trips on larger vessels, was a nice change of pace.

The Entertainment: Mixing It Up

There’s been a big change in the daytime activities. Where once there were guest speakers, there are now “Life Enhancement” lectures on health and fitness. “Enhance Your Life Through Exercise” and “Happy Feet for Healthy Life” were some of the offerings.

There are also more pool and game show activities, as the cruise line works to appeal to younger cruisers. An officer vs. guest pool volleyball game made its debut on this trip, joining the usual “Newlywed Game” takeoff, “Battle of the Sexes” and “Liar’s Club,” which—a first for us—featured the ship’s captain on the panel.

Evening entertainment was good quality, albeit standard fare—Broadway-style shows, a comedian, violinist, magician and singer. Off-stage entertainment ran the gamut, from folk music to classical to rock and salsa.

The Food: A Turn Toward Ordinary

Alas, from this foodie’s perspective, quality was sacrificed for quantity. When we first took the Connie, the three-star Michelin winner Michel Roux was running the show and each meal in the main dining room was a gastronomical high. Today, the food is plain at best. Entrees ranged from good (there was a nice crispy breaded pork chop and decent tenderloin) to poor (one steak had a very strange consistency). Desserts are merely ordinary. Instead of the rich and decadent “Opera” pastry I enjoyed on Princess, for example, the Constellation serves up chocolate layer cake.

The ship’s buffet, the Oceanview Café, runs until 9:30 p.m. at dinner, but compared to buffets on competing lines, seems an afterthought. There are some nice features, such as made-to-order grilling (choice of steak, salmon, chicken and pork), stir-fry and pasta, good pizza and an ice cream bar with syrup and candy toppings. But the desserts seldom varied from puddings or cupcakes.

On the other hand, the breakfast and lunch buffets offered a huge variety. (Although sorely missing was the array of fabulous rolls we once looked forward to.)

The Extras: A Few Still Remain

Some of what earned Celebrity the reputation of a premier cruise line is still there—the welcome champagne at embarkation, iced towels greeting you after a hot day at port, but we find it a changed cruise line, and the Constellation, a changed ship.

Those sailing on the Constellation for the first time will enjoy a smaller ship experience, quality entertainment and a crew eager to please. In short, a good cruise, but not a spectacular one.

Uninspired 1st ever Cruise Holiday on Celebrity Constellation by 2oncruise

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

In summary, we very much enjoyed the holiday, and value was overall good, mainly due to independently booking flights and excursions, and wherever possible avoiding Celebrity Cruises hiked prices.

Food food, pleasant crew, avoid spring break by Here2daygone2mo

Sail date: / Traveled as: Large Group
Ship: Celebrity Constellation / Destination: Caribbean - Bahamas

I was impressed from start to finish by how easy it was to board, navigate, enjoy and disembark from this ship. The food quality was quite good value and the crew, every single member always greeted you pleasantly and was helpful. The noise factor owing to passengers enjoying Spring Break made me want to hide on Deck 4. The pool was too small but there were plenty of chairs, towels, and waiters always when you needed them. We stopped in Key West and Nassau which was a very pleasant experience. I would sail with Celebrity again. The ship is a bit worn and smelly on deck 2 but when you were hungry for pizza at 1 am they had plent of it freshly made on deck 10. I had fun!  Bands were good too. Bar drinks good.

Really enjoy this cruise..because of covid the ship was less than half capacity, needless to say we had plenty of attention. We felt very safe since everyone had to be vaccinated. Although we didn’t feel good about leaving the ship to go into ports we thoroughly enjoyed the time onboard.

Fabulous Unique Itinerary by smccoyphd

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

Loved the itinerary, did all excursions with recommendations from Trip Advisor:Bravo Bombay, Oman Day Tours, Cochin Day Tours, Magic India, and Rita's Gourmet Cooking in Goa.

 

Food was very good but nothing exceptional.  Don't waste your money on Specialty dining...only the Ocean Liner was worth it.  This Tuscan grill is not Italian and the room is a converted florist room.  The sushi room is weird not exactly a premium location or nice experience.

 

The entertainment was excellent..loved the early show (7PM) then later dinner.

Western Caribbean Cruise by jeffswart

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

We really enjoyed our cruise.  It was very relaxing and refreshing to us.  Our room was comfortable and clean.  We LOVED the balcony (our first cruise that had a balcony).  We didn't do any excursions so have no comments to make about that.  We definitely loved the Wednesday night show (a man sang and was excellent--sorry, can't remember his name).  The man who helped us plan the cruise, Eddie Malone, did an excellent job and we are so appreciative of all his help!  It was very enjoyable!

Great first cruise! by jaymbiv

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

This happened to be my first cruise so I wasn't sure what to expect.  The service and employees were amazing.  The shows were okay, most of them being just entertaining.  Ancillary activities on the ship were fun and kept passengers busy during the days at sea.  Food aboard the ship was delicious.  They served almost every cuisine except for Spanish/Mexican food.  The destination stops were amazing.  You got just enough time to wet your appetite and I would like to definitely go back to spend extended amounts of time.  On-shore excursions were over priced through the cruise.  We were able to research more economical tour services for our destinations through local businesses.  The drink packages were slightly over priced as well.  We felt like we got our money's worth but we drank more than usual in order to achieve that value.  I would pass on the drink package if I had to do it again.  Finally, the stateroom attendants were incredible.  I would highly recommend this particular cruise and Celebrity Cruise Line but make sure you do your homework first.

This was my Wife's first cruise and my 3rd. We arrived at Port Everglades at 12:15 and was on the ship in 20 minutes. Bar staff was very friendly and attentive to our needs. Our room was very clean and our steward was there to greet us. First night in MDR, bread was stale and hard, waiter did not replace with fresh, aside from this rest of our meals were good. Buffet was presented very well with ample choices except the Coffee was like mud. I am Italian but the brand they had was terrible. Next was the towels in our room. Could of used them to sand wood. The bed was extremely confortable. Entertainment was just enough and the cruise director did a great job. The Casino was tight but I am sure it's because of the size of this ship. We had Concierge Class and were guaranteed early off the ship, we were dead last. In summary, we loved Celebrity and will be cruising ourselves into our retirement years. Thank you Constellation for making my Wife's trip a success.
