Our 10 night ultimate caribbean cruise started out of Ft.Lauderdale FL on March 27th and lasted til April the 6th. We had a great time on this cruise. Along with my self was my husband Rich and daughter Cayley age 5. My dad and his girlfriend were also travelling with us.
Getting on board was easy breezy! I wish we would have already had our ship baggage tags (had to get them from porter) would have liked to have already had them filled out..but no big deal. Our room was ready when we got on the ship by noon. Which is always nice to be able to drop your carry on things off before you go have lunch and explore the ship.
The Constellation was a beautiful ship, really liked the layout of the buffet area, nice and open. The art on the ship was nice, nothing to really complain about. Our inside cabin (our very 1st inside cabin) was really great! Nice and roomy and since we're always on the go we didn't miss the window or balcony. The bathroom was a nice size and in More
wayyy better condition then on the newly refurbished Century! Our room attendant Paulwin was excellent, very nice and accommodating. The crew itself was alot friendlier then on the Century, though our little girl really loved the fun factory kids club, we thought the childrens staffon the Century was a bit more sincere about working with the kids then onthe Constellation..but still they were good.
The food on the constellation was a step up from the quality and quantity of the Century. We found every meal fantastic on this cruise, except the scrambled eggs in the morning I just don't know why they cant fully cook them I cant stand runny scrambled eggs! The coffee was decent..better in the dining room then at the seaside cafe though. Ocean liners didn't disappoint but thought the staff presented the food and was alot more welcoming at Muranos on the Century. Just my opinion..but the food was excellent. In the alternative dining in the seaside cafe. Igor the head man there, whom we've met on the Century, had joined the Constellation and we were glad for it! Such a nice guy to talk with and seems truly genuine with his kindness. The food there was excellent and the service was prompt and pleasant.
Overall we had a fabulous time on this cruise and recommend the ship and all the port of calls. Less
Celebrity Constellation Cruises to the Southern Caribbean
St.Kitts was pretty..didnt do to much but walk around and shop went back to the ship early and relaxed by the pool. The T-pool on constellation rocks! So relaxing and its free unlike the hydro pool on HAL
In St.Lucia we did a dolphin and whale watch excursion. It was really AWESOME! We got onboard the 60ft boat and took off from right behind our ship. They took us down to the pitons and off a ways(quite the haul but was really beautiful) and we saw DOLPHINS! They were jumping out of the water at us and spinning in the air..it was really something. Afterwards they took us threw Marigots bay and told us about some of the history and previous celebrity residents. Had a lot of fun :)
St.Martin didn't disappoint. The water there is amazing! My camera took some great pictures but still couldn't do it justice. We went to Little Bay beach for the 1st time and thought it was a great little beach. Quiet beach, calm waters. No entrance fee and we didn't get any chairs either just enjoyed the sand :)
St.Thomas we went to Sapphire beach for the 1 st time. We usually opt for Coki beach but wanted to try something different. We loved it! Nice quiet beach and its big! Lots of room and the tide didn't come in so much that all our stuff got wet (our experience with coki)Did a little shopping downtown, thought the purse selection in the "tent" area was kinda "blah" Im usually a fan of that kind of shopping and was disappointed by the lack of selection..
