Constellation, 3/12/11, was wonderful
Destination: Southern Caribbean
Embarkation: Fort Lauderdale (Port Everglades)
Went very easy. We were on the ship within 15 minutes after reaching the pier.
Our stateroom was great. Our stateroom attendant and his assistant, Tondy and Peter, were both very attentive from the moment we arrived until we all said goodbye.
The buffet was okay, however after the "solsticizing" I'd hoped to see it laid out a little differently. We didn't find a lot there that was exciting, however it was good at lunch. Breakfast was always good. Evenings ... the food did not compare to the evening buffet food on the Millennium.
The main dining room was very good. Our waiter and assistant were both excellent, as was our assistant maitre'd. Ironically, with basically the same menu as the Millennium in January, the food was 100% better on the Constellation. What a difference a different chef makes!!
We only ate at one specialty restaurant, the Ocean Liners. WOW! We both had excellent More meals!!
We have visited most of the islands before so did not take tours at most. Those we did take were okay, however the one we had looked forward to the most, the helicopter ride from Antigua to view Montserrat had been cancelled due to mechanical problems on the helicopter. Better to know before, than during - it was disappointing, but understandable. A note was left in our cabin and a credit was made to our account immediately. They handled that very well.
The evening entertainment was great some nights, and other nights left a lot to be desired.
EVERYONE we dealt with on board was friendly, helpful and just great people Congrats to Celebrity for a wonderful crew.
Went every bit as smoothly as embarkation. Less
