A Very Professional Cruise

Sail Date: October 2013
Destination: Europe - Black Sea
Embarkation: Istanbul

We have cruised many times and this is our third Celebrity Cruise and the second on the Constellation. I am surprised by the other reviews of this cruise. Celebritys approach to the Norovirus was correct. Yes, it caused inconvenience but was the correct approach.

We chose Aquaclass but obviously for the first time on the Constellation. We choose it simply for the Blu Restaurant. You would never know you are on a ship carrying 2,000 passengers. We found all the staff were very professional particularly Sheyla in the Blu Restaurant and Katerina at Bistro on 5.

We ate breakfast and dinner every day at Blu. We had one dinner at the Tuscan grill. That meal was very good but in fact Blu does a very similar job. We ate a few lunches in Bistro on 5 and they were good. We had one lunch at the Aqua Spa cafe. This is good but we noticed they have now introduced some additional dessert options but for additional charge. It is a silly policy of Celebrity to sneak in some further More charges. We also noticed they no longer serve a small bowl of nuts when you sit down for a drink at one of the bars. Much better to chafe a few dollars more for the cruise and supply a couple of nuts with drinks and a few additional desserts in the Aqua Spa cafe.

Overall a professional cruise with good ports and a very clean well run ship. Less

Cabin review:

Good cabin on the hump. A much bigger balcony than average.
