Ship Facts: Celebrity Constellation Review (by Cruise Critic!) | Celebrity Constellation Deck Plans
Wanted to right so many wrongs......
I would like to start off saying I'm not big on writing reviews.(I have written one before and I have cruised 30 times) however in this case I just could not let this sailing go by without some redemptive words being said....prior to this cruise I had read reviews that basically made this ship sound like I would be sailing into HELL....now I am always optimistic because I do realize that some people are glass half full and others half empty...but there were just so many.....so saying this.....in the event they ALL really had a very bad experience...I can attest that management listened....and that is encouraging....how often does that happen in the real world.

We boarded last Monday Feb 18th....now I was about to hit the big 50 and not really looking forward to that milestone and decided that hitting it on a cruise ship would be the way to go...and it was...firstly we had the pleasure of meeting some CC folks ahead of time online and made a date to meet up for sailaway.....we were definitely a diverse group but we all hit it off and spent quite a bit of time together throughout the cruise....

The ship appeared to be in very good shape to me....now I guess some might say...well what would you know you are 50 everything old looks good to you...but not true....I am not going down gracefully and fighting it every step of the way...just not with additives....but yes there are some stains on the carpets....yes there is some rust....OMG she is a sea going vessel with lots of people walking around with glasses of wine etc and cups of coffee....stains happen....I found a few spider veins above my knee yesterday....not excited about it but it goes with the age territory.....

The crew.....not once and I'm serious...did a crew member go past me without a hello and a smile....NOT ONE....everyone was so gracious....the food in the buffet was diverse...if you couldn't find something you like.....well you are picky indeed....both breakfast and lunch had many choices...and dinner in the MDR was very tasty and the choices were adventurous.....I have totally widened my palate cruising....trying new things because if you don't like it you can always order something else....our waiters...and wine/bar attendants...excellent

Here is one place that Celebrity might have slipped up a bit....I usually spend quite bit of the evening in the casino depositing into their coffers...however after the first night where I turned $20 into $70....my table mates told us about the entertainer in Michaels club.....we spent every night thereafter in there with him.....having the time of our lives.....he was magnificent....a total blast....he sang crazy songs with his guitar and had folks come up and sing karoke but they didn't get to pick what it was....it was hilarious....and their abilities ranged from basic bad to could be on American Idol....a great entertaining experience......and I ended up leaving with some of Celebrities $$ never good for them.....

Tablemates another amazing thing...the first night we got to our table we were certainly a "motley crew"....but we had the best time together and I know I have made lifelong friends....I'm not sure how they did it....but we just gelled..

So here's the thing....if you want a good cruise that is very reasonably priced this ship is perfect....you WILL have a good time unless you are just a very hard to please individual....when cruising you should go onboard to enjoy the experience and know that although the staff are catering to you they are NOT your slaves and have feelings and treat them as you want to be treated.....and for that matter your fellow cruise mates....you will ENJOY yourself...

Ports: On my 50th birthday...it rained that day in Roatan for quite sometime...but guess what....it was an amazing day...........heard horror stories about that place too.............it was beautiful went to West Bay...to Bananaland and the Thirsty Turtle...the water was beautiful...ladies were giving massages for $10 for 20 minutes...the banana boat ride was $10 for 30 minutes....which was so much fun.....it was a great place to hang out and enjoy...didn't get off in Cozumel...enjoyed the quietness on the ship as I've been there a few times....

Just go on and enjoy folks....we certainly did
