Sailed three weeks ago
Embarkation was a breeze. We were Aqua class so boarding time was 1030, and we were on the ship by 11 and pretty much had the entire buffet to ourselves. From the time we boarded until we left, the service by the crew was prompt and ... Read more

My husband and son had never been to Europe so we decided to the Baltic Sea cruise and we stayed in London for 3 days prior to the cruise, then took a car service down to a motel in Southampton. We hadn't sailed on Celebrity for over 10 ... Read more

We chose this cruise particularly because of the ports of call. Embarkation and disembarkation were very quick with no waiting. Everything about our cruise was amazing. Our balcony cabin was very spacious and had plenty of storage ... Read more

Chose the cruise due to itinerary, timing and overall cruise critic reviews. Stopovers were decent and the boat had a strong reputation for families. We had gone on a few prior cruises and were bound to compared this to the Regal ... Read more

We embarked at pier 91. Our car arrived at the port at 11:00 am but there was a long line of towncars so we were not able to get to the pier until 11:25. (Cabs get to bypass this line, so you may want to try that instead of a towncar.) ... Read more

This was our first cruise. We were encouraged by Cruise experts to pay the extra amount and get a better experience on Celebrity Cruises. I have to say the ship (Reflection) was immaculate. Modern, well designed, comfortable and were ... Read more

This is third time my family and I have been on the Summit, once in 2011, then 2013 and June of 2016. The updates to the NJ port make it so much easier getting on and off the ship. Over the times we have been on the ship I have seen ... Read more

My husband chose Celebrity, because we'd both had a very good experience sailing with them five years ago on the Solstice. We also really enjoyed being Spa class and having access to Blu. He wanted his mother to experience it, too. ... Read more

This was our 7th cruise on the Solstice and 39th with Celebrity. We were joined by one of our daughters and her family of 5. The children were 12,11 and 9. So we had a very different experience than almost all of our 68 other cruises. This ... Read more

We have cruised with Celebrity before on the Eclipse and the Silhouette and so had no hesitation in booking again this time on the Constellation. What a mistake! The staff to guest ratio is so low that the service was very poor. We had ... Read more

As previous DCL cruisers we researched a lot before booking our Alaskan cruise. Although we love Disney- the price of a basic balcony stateroom was almost the same price as a sky suite on Celebrity with many more perks. After speaking ... Read more

We chose this cruise because friends were also going. EMBARKATION went very smooth. We waited until later in the afternoon to board and the line was short and fast. DISEMBARKATION was fast. It was my husband, myself and our 8 year old. ... Read more

Eclipse is beautiful ship and all the staff, without exception in our experience, are so welcoming and helpful. I really don't know how they keep their jovial spirit all day long for months on end. Our cabin was Aquaclass and whilst ... Read more

We sailed on Celebrity Constellation's Eastern Mediterranean cruise from Venice. The airport is poor and under construction. Getting to the coach was difficult. Once in the cruise terminal building our embarkation was very smooth - but we ... Read more
