March 2015 - Celebrity Constellation to Caribbean - Bahamas
We have cruised about 6 times, this being the first on Celebrity. The itinerary and price fit our needs for this mini vacation. BJ's travel was great! The ship was beautiful but we were expecting "over the top" service. We had heard that Celebrity was a "step above" Royal Caribbean and we were quite underwhelmed. The steward, the entertainment, the cruise director and guest relations were excellent. We found that the bar service was lacking--you had to stand in line at the bar and service was slow. At dinner, a bar server never came to the table and poolside there were hardly any servers! We had to ask our waiter every night to get someone so we could have a cocktail or wine and they couldn't understand simple requests--my husband asked for bourbon and continually got scotch. We noticed that in the buffet restaurant many dirty tables waited a long time to be cleared--that would NEVER have happened on Royal Caribbean or Norwegian! We also noticed that at some of the outdoor seating areas, the floors were never swept and the tables were not cleared in a timely fashion! We had a great time but, sorry Celebrity, we'll stick to Royal Caribbean and Norwegian!!
