Guest Relations >> The first 3 days of the trip were miserable. The assigned room smelled like an ashtray. We spoke to Guest Relations, who confirmed that all rooms were non-smoking. We asked for another room, but were informed that ... Read more

We chose this cruise for our group of 8 primarily for the itinerary. We have sailed with Celebrity a few other times and have had a good experience. We were reluctant to book on the Constellation based on other reviews, but all in all we ... Read more

We had a wonderful cruise experience on the Celebrity Equinox. Embarkation in Barcelona was very fast, maybe 10 minutes total from arriving at port to being greeted on the ship with a glass of champagne. All staff were extremely friendly ... Read more

This was our second ever cruise the first one being on the much fated Anthem of the Seas last summer. Where we didn't have a great time on Anthem of the Seas we somehow caught the cruise bug. We flew to Barcelona one night early ... Read more

We went on this cruise after staying on own own for 3 days in Barcelona. Embarkation was easier and faster than ever! The Captains Club lunch in the main dining room was quiet and fast - menu selection was limited but there was chicken, ... Read more

The ship was an exact replica of the Summit so we knew exactly where everything was. It is a nice ship but nothing new. The food was spectacular, as always. There was no need to go to one of their gourmet restaurants when you have 5 ... Read more

First to be understood, we picked the itinerary, rather than the ship. The Constellation is an older ship, showing its age. Sometimes the linens had holes in them, and the benches in the Ocean View restaurant had cracks and tears in the ... Read more

The cruise we went on went to many different ports. That is why we selected it. We have cruised with Celebrity in the past and they really know how to handle so many people. Getting off and on in all the ports was seamless. The food ... Read more

We have cruised with Celebrity for over 15 years. We chose the Iberian Peninsula cruise as we had not been to the Ports on this cruise earlier. The Check-in took ages in spite being Elite Members. They had the bookings messed up - we ... Read more
