We chose this cruise to go to Mardi Gras. It worked out great as the dock is close to town and we could walk to the parade sites and pretty much anywhere in the French Quarter. The other ports were OK but we have been to them many times ... Read more

This cruise included Mardi Gras in New Orleans. Music was basically Jazz.. The passengers were born in the 50's for the most part. Entertainment was awful. High school musical and amateurish. Comedians were very good. Pool deck music was ... Read more

This was one area we had not been to in the previous cruises around the Caribbean. Celebrity needs help in a couple areas: 1. The boarding process at the Miami Cruise Terminal was a very slow. Maybe the slowest we've seen? 2. The ... Read more

Overall, this was the best ship we have been on in terms of specialty restaurants and service, including the far more expensive Oceana Marina. Itinerary/Food/Service are our priorities and in this case our teenage daughter picked the ... Read more

This was the largest ship and most expensive cruise we've taken. Last year we cruised on the Rhapsody of the Seas which seemed like a smaller clone (2000 passengers versus 3000). The dining, cabin and service was exceptional. To ... Read more

We chose the Constellation over the Millennium primarily because it garnered better reviews and had Ocean Liners intact. Both sailed out of Singapore, which would have saved us air tickets and time travelling to port. We were initially ... Read more

Having sailed on Celebrity ships before, we were expecting the standard to be somewhat higher. Normally Celebrity pitch their niche market a notch above their sister company -RCL - but this ship was not. It was a little tired in some areas ... Read more

We enjoyed most aspects of the cruise. Great room and our room steward, Juan, was terrific. The classic drink package, which was included, was more than adequate. I first thought I would have to upgrade but that was not necessary. The ... Read more

We were told by our cruise planner to arrive for boarding by noon at the latest "to avoid long lines". We arrived at the ship at 11:40 and did not embark until 1:20. There were several sections with 4 employees at each, ... Read more

EMBARKATION: Easy breezy as we were in a suite. We arrived early and were escorted past all the lines and were on the ship within 15 minutes of arrival at the terminal. We even snuck into our room early and popped the champagne! The ... Read more

Good price for a short cruise. Had never been to Key West/Bahamas so wanted this experience. The room attendant was very attentive. There was a shortage of wooden hangars and we were not given any additional ones. Really enjoyed the ... Read more
