We have sailed with Celebrity since 1996 and have loved it and recommended to so many people that it was really the 5 star premium cruise line

We sailed on 4th December and boarded without any problems. Luggage was a little late arriving but fortunately we were on late dining so it was ok.

Our cabin was great. Having secured one at the back of the ship the balcony was huge and the decor was very nice.

The new additions were ok, having seen them previously on the Solstice ships we knew what to expect.

We were very disappointed to see the martini bar now in a new position, had some kind of music played constantly that seemed entirely out of place for the people who were travelling and gave a completely different vibe from previous experiences and so on this cruise it wasn't the popular venue that it had previously been. The fact that the Rendezvous bar has now been covered with a ceiling over the dance floor has spoiled that part of the ship for us. We used to love having a drink in the martini bar and watch the dancing below. A personal opinion but something that was commented on by a few people who had previously sailed on the Constellation.

The disappointing thing on the refurbishment was that the main dining room was not part of it and some furnishings were looking very tired. The large porthole windows in some places were definitely in need of a coat of paint

The entertainment in the theatre has been getting weaker on the last couple of cruises that we have taken with Celebrity but this cruise the theatre was a great disappointment.

We discovered Michael's bar and would strongly recommend it as an evening entertainment venue. The guy on the piano was superb and the bar staff in there were true professionals. Remembered names and drinks and knew how to make people feel welcome.

The staff on Celebrity are still wonderful. Always smiling, ready to help no matter where you were on the ship.

The food on Celebrity has certainly gone down a star I feel unless you are eating in the speciality restaurants.

The ports of call for us were all good apart from Tobago which was the shortest time ashore on our trip

Having visited this island many times it is still beautiful. Worth arranging a tour if you want to visit a beach away from the port on the west coast as many beaches are private with access from hotels who charge. we were quoted $50 dollars each to use the beach at the Hilton quite close to the port

Lovely people. took an island tour with a taxi. Island has been badly hit in hurricane season and some parts of the island were still not fully in use for tourists when we were there

This has always been my favourite island in the Caribbean before this trip but Charlotte Amalie was looking tired and needs to have some money spent on the footpaths as a lot of them were very uneven. Megans bay is still beautiful
