The Celebrity Constellation is a favourite of many and we were comfortable on the ship having sailed the Celebrity Millenium five years ago. Generally speaking the ship was in good repair although there were places that a coat of varnish ...
This was our first experience of having a cruise. I can honestly say we would never go on another cruise again. The staff were courteous and friendly though and helpful.
We were bombarded from day 1 with sales pitches for different ...
We are destination driven and booked this cruise as soon as advertised to visit India, although we had been to the UAE and Oman twice before. Had we waited a few weeks before booking we could have had a week before ...
Chose this cruise with Celebrity as we have cruised before on the Eclips but we were disappointed with the Constellation Ship. It is ready for a refurb. A little has already been done but majority of bars etc are really dull and shabby. ...
Second time we have used Celebrity and again booked a Sky suite as larger suites were all taken.
The cruise was from Abu Dhabi to Dubai (overnight) to New Mangalore, Goa and Mumbai all India. The cruise was supposed to go into Oman but ...
We choose this cruise for the ports of call to India.
Arrived in Dubia Airport and transfered by private taxi to Abu Dhabi Cruise terminal (time 1. 40 mins).
Arabian Sea & India Maiden Voyage
Embarkation was straight forward ...
It is probably easier to state my one complaint, than to cover the very many aspects that I thought were great about the ship. My only complaint was that some of the entertainment on the second leg of our cruise was a repeat of our first ...
We chose this cruise as somewhere for a group of us to go to celebrate carious anniversaires and birthdays. The ship was fine the staff lovely and the food excellent but there it ended.
The ship was very expensive 18% on everything - ...
We had sailed with Celebrity previously (Australia & NZ) so when the opportunity to sail with them again to India, we jumped at the chance.
Embarkation was very straight forward and we appreciated getting on board early so that we ...
Chose this cruise for the unusual ports and had a super cruise with Celebrity last year. The cruise was to celebrate our 30th wedding anniversary.
Joining the ship was smooth and easy.
Dubai was the first stop and good to visit the ...
I wanted to see the final race of the f1 season in Abu Dhabi via the Suez canal.Just a couple of things off my bucket list.
First night was at a hotel in Athens,because of the bombs in Turkey,so far so good,it seems like I am being ...
We chose this cruise particularly for two reasons:
1 Transit id the Suez Canal
2. Embarkation from Istanbul (and so we could stay there 3 days prior to the cruise to soak up some of the sights of this great city)
Our group was ...
We booked this cruise very late and got an amazing last minute deal . We had been on the Connie only 2 cruises (see other review) prior to this one and had a great time. This was a different cruise in that it was a re-positioning cruise ...
I have been on many cruises (over 85) and this is the most BORING cruise that I have ever taken. I am VERY disappointed with Celebrity and do not plan to sail them again.
Our cruise from Athens to Abu Dhabi had many sea days. I love ...
I am a very, very experienced cruise traveler. I enjoyed this cruise, had a good time. There are some big BUT's though which unnerved me. Here my opinions, which will most likely resonate more with fellow Europeans:
Ship beautiful, ...
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 ...
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 ...
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 ...
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 ...
First the good ,inside cabin ,fine and kept lovely by our steward,ship very clean ,staff friendly and helpful .entertainment good ,the queen tribute trio were excellent .we ate in the metropole restaurant every night same vegetables ...
We booked this cruise a year and a half ago. What fun planning. There were 4 of us, all retired, but active. We picked this cruise because of the itinerary and our past experiences with Celebrity.
The ship was originally to depart from ...
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 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. ...
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 ...
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 ...
