Great short get-away

Sail Date: February 2014
Destination: Bahamas
Embarkation: Fort Lauderdale (Port Everglades)

For our eighth cruise, we decided to take a short get-away to a couple of places we hadn't been before - Nassau, Bahamas and Key West. We've been on five different cruise lines, but find Celebrity suits us very well. Tried the concierge class this time - had done aqua class before. Both were good, although I'd likely try the aqua class again next time. Access to Blu for dining seems to add a bit of quality to the overall experience. Embarkation was quick and easy for both cabin classes. Found the food quality in the main dining room to vary quite a bit - sometimes very tasty, others pretty bland or overcooked. Cy and Ron were great waiters during the times we were lucky enough to get them (we had the "pick your own time" dining package). Dinner in the Tuscan was excellent, as was the sommelier Natasha. This was our first time with the Classic Beverage package, and we really enjoyed the options it provided to us. The room was nice and light, with reasonable storage capacity. The bath More needed a bit of repair work, but nothing serious. Really appreciate that you can easily choose not to have your picture taken (over and over again). They don't push this as much as other lines, but offer it as an option to those who are interested. We chose to keep our luggage and use the walk off disembarkation early in the morning. It was quick and easy. If you don't have too much luggage to manage, this is a great way to exit quickly. All in all, Celebrity is a great cruising option that we'd highly recommend. Less

Cabin review: Celebrity Constellation 8177

Great cabin. Light wood made it feel larger than it was. Reasonable storage for all our belongings. No noise from surrounding cabins - very quiet. Even near the back of the ship, rolling was marginal. Highly recommend.
