Great entertainment

Sail Date: April 2014
Destination: Transatlantic
Embarkation: Fort Lauderdale (Port Everglades)

The Constellation sailed on a 15 day cruise from Fort Lauderdale to Amsterdam. The intermediate ports were Lisbon, Le Havre, Dover, and Zeebrugge. We enjoyed the smaller ship and thought the Connie was in good shape for its age. The weather was windy and rainy as we hit the northern ports, so that detracted some from our enjoyment of the cruise.

The big difference between this cruise and the other six transatlantic cruises we have taken was the entertainment. On those other cruises the entertainment has been fair at best, but this one was different. We had two very good male singers and one good female singer from London's West End. The comedian was funny and the comedic juggler was a stitch. Singers and dancers were good, but the best shows by far were the classical music shows (even though I am not a big fan of classical). The concert pianist was Brooks Aehron from London. He was not only great on the piano, but was funnier than the comedian. He let us know at his second More show that Celebrity was trying something new - the presentation of a young future star of the classical music world. On this cruise he accompanied Andrea Amat, an incredible young flute player. Her "Flight of the Bumblebee" was amazing. Hope that Celebrity keeps this program going.

The only shows we did not enjoy were the magician (standard stuff with no comedy) and four girls who did Beatles music (they were OK, but would rather have four men). We missed the violinist but were told that he was very good. Less

This cabin has a slanted balcony almost twice as large as the others in the class.
