We chose this cruise primarily for the itinerary and were not disappointed. Maybe we found Cartagena a little light in entertainment, but after visiting so many places in two weeks we were not so excited to see another town. The service ... Read more

We chose this Cruise on recommendation from a friend, as we'd never been on a cruise before we asked around various friends who had cruised already, and after weighing up what we thought would be the best company for us we settled for ... Read more

We chose this particular cruise due to the itinerary. I knew the Constellation would be undergoing a refurbishment immediately following this cruise and it does need a facelift. We were on Deck 8 in cabin 8072. This was my second ... Read more

The embarkation went without any issues. The ship itself was clean and tidy, well equipped with good bars and restaurants although a refurb in certain areas would benefit the ship. The food selection was good and food quality excellent and ... Read more

It was with trepidation after reading all the negative reviews about this ship, that we embarked in Rome. Whether we were just very lucky I don't know but I could not fault the food (and we do like good food) the staff were all polite and ... Read more

The crew could not have done more. I cruise a lot and have rarely seen a crew so nice and accommodating. The boat is old but kept in excellent condition and clean. I do not suggest you stay on the second floor. We had room 2000. ... Read more

We have traveled on Celebrity before and despite some bad experiences gave them another try as the trip looked really good. The ports were great, especially as we did not do any of the ship's excursion tours which we did with others via ... Read more

My wife and I were hesitant to go on a cruise given that I have bad motion sickness and we've read all the reviews on how cruise ships are not fun for young adults. I was completely wrong - Celebrity Constellation was fantastic in every ... Read more

We chose this cruise specifically because it was going to Israel. We had been to most of the other ports. The crew and service was excellent. I would like to suggest that they use less salt however, in their food. Our cabin was a ... Read more

We chose this cruise specifically to spend 3 full days exploring Israel and the disembarking in Istanbul where we intended to stay for a few extra nights. Booking with Choice Air was ideal since when they cancelled Istanbul, they ... Read more

Itinerary, timing and pricing were key factors in choosing this cruise. The ports were mostly places we wanted to see. It was the end of season to avoid crowds and the heat of summer. The price was very good because of late ... Read more

A reunion cruise with some great folks from Oz and Texas that we met on HAL's Volendam 2 years back. All agreed Celebrity a big improvement over HAL. The Eastern Med destinations in Turkey and Israel led to a little pre-cruise anxiety ... Read more

Have cruised quite a few times on the Silhouette, but this time there were quite a few differences, some good, some bad. The bad: 1. Holes in the "black out" curtain lining. I had to put small black patches over the holes ... Read more

We chose this cruise because of the exciting ports we visited. We visited Israel and it was an amazing place. We stayed over night in Jerusalem and felt quite safe. The place is so full of history and is so powerful, just loved it. We ... Read more

We chose this cruise because of the wonderful itinerary. Malta, Cyprus and Israel were all new to us and having the chance to spend time in Rome after the cruise was a big factor in our decision. The Constellation is a very nice ship. ... Read more

One of the drivers for picking this cruise was because it originally started in Istanbul, a city we have waited years to visit. Sadly, due to it being deemed unsafe, our embarkation was moved to Athens. It's quite some years since we'd ... Read more

Spent 12 nights on the Celebrity Constellation in October 2016. For a 14 year old ship she is in very good condition. She was refurbed about 3-4 years ago but is well maintained. She does not have the glamour of some of the newer ships ... Read more
