We enjoyed the Gym and the earlier opening hours of 6am pleased us as did the nice gym towels and great view.
We found the shows less then stellar, but did enjoy the comedy night and several of the music shows. The Constellation show people were great dancers but poor singers and when will the ship get the point that older guests hate loud amphed up music? It drove everyone nuts.
The ports of call were great. St.Petersburg the charm with a wonderful ballet and tours of the Pushkin estate and its quiet and subdued gardens, and immense wealth. The tours in Estonia, and Lithiuania were likewise enjoyable and eye opening, both the beauty of Tallin, and the warmness of the people. The Solidary museum in Poland a must see, but the rest of Gadinsk leaves a lot to be desired.
We returned happy and loved the overall ambience of the ship. We found the crew that attended to our room needs outstanding and helpful. We found the food staff unable to satisfy us with respect to our problems with the food and laid the blame on the kitchen. No solution was found for this. Most disappoint to us that this is a five star line and the food brought our trip down to a 3 star level.In comparison to our first cruise the Constellation did not provide value for the dollar spent and did not live up to its billing. The HAL trip to Alaska had outstanding food and service and this line was no comparison to that trip.
