Celebrity Constellation Cruise Review by Nola Venton: Holy Land Cruise
Overall Member Rating
Holy Land Cruise
Destination: Europe - Eastern Mediterranean
On the whole we enjoyed this cruise very much. The ports of call were amazing despite that fact that Alexandria had to be removed from the itinerary due to unrest in Egypt. This was unfortunate as we had planned to meet up with friends there.
Fortunately the weather was kind to us with only one heavy shower - being November we were expecting rough seas, cold and rain.
The Constellation itself could really do with a refit soon. The public areas had worn carpet and were beginning to look a little tatty. However the cabin was immaculate and always kept that way. It was unfortunate that a number of passengers went down with the Norovirus which meant that we were not able to have a buffet for breakfast or lunch and that some activities (such as the backstage tours) had to be cancelled and even the Library was closed for the whole trip. But the staff were scrupulous in keeping everything clean and sanitised. They were attempting to keep us healthy.
The major More niggle was that room service tended to be lukewarm - even inedible one time - and that the service in the Marco Polo restaurant was incredibly slow. The waiting staff need better training.
One of the best parts of the cruise was the entertainment, especially the shows. Less

Cabin review: 2C6045 Deluxe Ocean View with Balcony 2C
Across from lifts - very convenient. A little smaller than we have had previously but not very cramped. Was on port side of ship but still had lovely views in most ports. Cabin steward was brilliant.Read All Deluxe Ocean View with Balcony 2C (2C) Reviews >>
