Got what we paid for. by lanak0288

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

This was a rather reasonably priced cruise but its ports of call were great (except it canceled the Istanbul stop which required me to fly there independently). Some of the sidetrips were good - some not worth the money.  The food was good and the people onboard were great.  We hated asking for a drink of water and expecting  a glass of water and getting charged $8 for bottles so we then watched our purchases much more closely, which probably cost the be oat a lot more than they made on our water.  Sometimes small things make you draw a line in the sand.  The entertainment was so so with the exception of a young couple who played Irish music in a bar and the aerial people.

Dalmation Cruise by Cruiser15761254

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

We had a wonderful time on this cruise.  The ship staff was great, very friendly, eager to help and always cheerful.  The facilities were clean and well maintained, and the dining room was lovely.  Our only disappointment was the lack of activities other than the pool for the general populace.  The sport deck was busy with athletes and the one ping pong table was constantly in use.   The pools were fine, and we did manage to use them several times.  The Cruise Director was fantastic and the entertainment was thoroughly enjoyable.  We really loved the orchestra and the production group.  This was a great cruise.

Pleasure all the way. by Cruiser95478747

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

Celebrity Constellation is a nice size and comfortable cruise ship, with good service and excellent cuisine. A good selection of interesting 'Ports of call' with some new places to explore.

Thank you to all the crew onboard the Constellation.

Excellent Choice by tmpettigrass

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

The entire cruise was a most enjoyable experience, expecially, the Ports of Call, and Celebrity excursions.  The downside to this review was the excursion in Florence which did not include going onto the Ponti Vecchio bridge (shops), nor did it include visiting any of the structures in the piazza such as the Santa della Croce church, burial place of Michaelangelo, etc.  The tour was hurried and concentrated too much on shopping, which would have been alrignt, had it included the above referenced sights!

Accommodating by lisahoulihan

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

We have no complaints with our cruise.  Our son go sick back in New York and Celebrity couldn't have been more accommodating.  The staff was so compassionate and helpful.

10 Night Italy Cruise by debdunn51dd

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

This was our first cruise. The Celebrity Constellation is a wonder ship with very nice and efficient crew in all aspects of service. The ship is comfortable, clean, modern and the food and service is top notch.

We would wholeheartedly promote Celebrity for anyone wanting a very good cruising experience.

Celebrity needs to make some improvements. by charlieandemieg

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

The itinerary was the best part of the cruise - loved the ports in Slovenia - most of our tour guides were informative which made the sightseeing enjoyable.  Our cabin was very nice - we had a balcony which we enjoyed since the weather was always warm and sunny.  The food was a disappointment - there was variety but many times was tough and not very tasty.  With the desserts, there were the same 3 items served every night and just 2 new and different choices.  Our 2 waiters. Freddy and Arthur were excellent.  Most of the nightly shows were good, especially the 2 aerialists.

We enjoyed breakfast on our balcony most mornings.  Our cabin attendant was very courteous and efficient. The movies on the tv and under the stars included several movies for children.

A good value and some very good ports of call by gmadriss

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

The staff on the ship was very attentive and helpful.  The food was tasty.  The stateroom was  a  bit small and there was an awkward step to the bathroom.  There was an abundance of activities for every taste. While there were hand cleaners before entering  the dining room they should also be placed at the stairwell.  They try to encourage you to use their trip services but you can easily use other sources. Having an overnight in Malta was a big plus.  Overall I would give the cruise a strong "B".

Constellation, Barcelona to Venice by JohnChely

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

Itinerary rich.  We could have actually have used some more sea days to give us a chance to catch our breath.  Fabulous guides in Cannes, Rome, and Salerno with ship's tours.  Disappointed in Luminae - mostly tables for two, and no interaction with our fellow guests.  We wound up returning to the main dining room, and enjoyed it thoroughly.  Combined with the doubling of Celebrity's suite pricing, we probably will only book regular cabins from now on.  We understand that Celebrity is getting ready to make some major dining changes, including removing the always exquisite Ocean Liners from the Constellation.  That will be a shame.

Nice but slightly tired by Cruiser67056161

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

A stay in Barcelona the evening before deoarture is recommended.

Ship was nice but dated in places - looking a little tired compared to other shops but nothing too bad.

Hotel stay in Venice at the end was a good idea but the hotel was appalling. We complained but got nowhere so a disappointing end.

Great Mediterranean Cruise, but a little lacking in on-board entertainment by atomicrooster

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

The cruise was very good and the Celebrity Constellation was excellent. Everything was enjoyable, the food, the relaxation, the ship and the ports. A glaring weakness, and we are comparing to several other cruise lines, was the entertainment, or lack thereof. The exception were the evening shows which were exceptional. The entertainment staff appeared to be a few members short and/or may have been on a tight budget. For example, the DJ moonlighting as a trivia host seemed a little odd! It just didn't work. This was only one example. There were to numerous to mention!

Fantastic destinations by makandjak

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

Our cruise was very enjoyable. Our shore excursions were jam packed with activities and they allowed us to see everything of importance within the time limitations given at each port. The food service was great, however the food was okay. Nothing to write home about.  The entertainment was top notch. 

I had a great deep tissue massage in the spa but didn't appreciate the push to buy their outrageously priced products after the treatment. Other than that little bump in the road I would recommend this cruise if you want to see a lot of Europe in a short time.

Great Ship by oancea

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

the shore destinations are still open at 6pm. why cannot the excursions start at 9-10 am instead of 7-8am.  We could still get back to the ship and it sail at 7-8pm?

These 7:30am start times are not friendly to a relaxing vacation.

Italy and Croatia from Venice by MikefromCO

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

Thoroughly enjoyed the ports along the Adriatic Sea, especially Dubrovnik, as well as Taormina in Sicily. Rodica was particularly helpful with shore excursions and information plus attending to special needs. I would add here though that the activity level of the various tours should consider the walking time / distance to and from the buses as they were often lenghty. The food was excellent although not quite as good as previous Celebrity cruises. The wait staff were always courteous and attentive. Especially enjoyed the Ocean Liner Specialty restaurant. Quite often it took quite a long tome to get soft drinks and drinks from the bar in the buffet. It seemed as though it was always someone's else's job. On the plus side, Keisha (from Jamaica) in the Sunset Bar was so good, attentive and pleasant that a visit there was a daily must. Special order breakfasts ordered for the cabin were exceptional and always on time. Can definitely recommend this particular cruise.

about average by golightly99

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

Celebrity's website is quite bad and it's difficult to get sufficient information, especially about shore excursions.  Was constantly being advised to check back later.  An email I sent through their site was sent back undeliverable.  Reviews are often not even of the cruise/excursion in question.  They really need to overhaul their entire IT department.  Apparently they no longer bother to send out luggage tags and you have to print your own. 

 

Our room was uncomfortably warm despite having it looked at twice.  My alarm clock also displays temperature so these numbers are not just guesses.  Despite keeping it to the coolest setting possible are room was an average of 75 degrees.  The lowest it ever went was 72 degrees, and at one point it actually reached an extremely miserable 82 degrees.  I'm wondering if this is a Celebrity problem as the same thing happened on a cruise last year but at least we were given a fan to use (and a partial credit toward a future cruise, which is why we gave them a second chance).  This time we were told no fan was available and it was uncomfortable a large portion of the time.  75 degrees is not air conditioning! 

 

Smaller things, like small cheap bath towels, absolutely no food of any kind available after 1 am, etc...

 

Positive things too though, like tasty food, friendly staff (sommelier Richard is quite nice), was able to request a body pillow.  Our itinerary was changed mid cruise due to the labor strikes in Greece and the staff at guest relations were helpful in placing ship to shore calls for us so we could adjust out plans accordingly.  Unfortunately, a few nights later when we inquired about rumored metro strikes in Athens we were given misinformation which pretty much ruined that day for us.

some good some bad by rwazu

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

The itinerary was what I liked best. Most of the entertainment was excellent , especially the Beatles group and the house band. The cabin service  and dining service were also excellent

.

The aqua class restaurant Blu had a repetitive menu and overall I thought San Marco had better selections . Most starters and salads , soups and deserts were excellent . The steak was tough and only moderately tasty.

I encountered a problem at check in , our sea passes were not with the others ,after 10 minutes we were brought to another desk where I was told I had an additional $12.00 due but had to see guest relations desk .I did not need this useless delay after a long day of travel.When I asked what the charge was for ,and they did not know and had to call Miami .I went back the next  two days and they still did not know and credited my account the $ 12.00.

 

Another communications lapse occurred when I got Norovirus and saw the nurse ,  was given Imodium and  antibiotics and an elixir for cramps . and sent to my cabin . I felt fine in the morning and headed for the buffet for breakfast , our housekeeper spotted me and told me I was to stay in my cabin till released , hence missed best port of Ephesus . I was stuck with room service with a lousy menu ,best thing on it was a B L T, hardly cruise fare . The following day I go back to Guest Relations and ask if  there is any reimbursement for missed day  due to Norovirus outbreak ,told me there was no outbreak. There were 22 cases , 6 from  Blu , do the math .They were cleaning constantly pushing handcleaner at every venue. They said would send info to my cabin , when I got nothing I asked again , only to get nothing , then I asked when I would get It . They replied  tonight by 8pm. Went back at 8pm and was told it was on the way .Got it at about 830pm last night . It promised an unknown credit amount on a future cruise expiring in one year . Why should it expire and what is the amount?

 

The crew were outstanding except for guest relations and  nurse with lack of communication.

 

Having last sailed on the Eclipse I could not recommend the Constellation to others . I would tell them to go Solstice class.
