Great Excursions, Noisy Ship, and don't take a penknife.

We loved: the excursions and the quality of the guides that led them; the excellent speakers on topics linked to the region we were visiting; the range of activities and facilities on the ship; the friendly service from the helpful crew. We disliked: the amplified music that generally resounded through the lounges and the wailing songs that screeched around the buffet dining room. Although ...

Booked this cruise in January as we really wanted to see Yalta, Sevastopol, and Odessa, and the Putin invaded Crimea and the FO advised against travelling to the Ukraine. Despite this the itinerary remained unchanged in the adverts. I wrote to them to ask where would we be going and got back a generic reply about safety etc and the situation was under review, and if a change was made we would be ...

After sailing on the Millenium fro Tokyo to Vancouver in May we were ready to give up on Celebrity but had previously booked the Constellation 2 Oct sailing and decided to give them one more chance and we are glad that we did. Everything that was wrong with the Millenium and there were a magnitude of service and ship maintenance issues- we found all in very good order on the Constellation. Ports ...

This was the twentieth cruise, eight with Celebrity, the second on Constellation and, because of advancing age and declining health, possibly the final sailaway. The decision, for what might be the last time in a lifetime, was to take a relaxed approach to travelling. After four and a half hours from the house to Gatwick by train. We had requested assistance at our local station which we ...

We just returned from the Sept. 20th 2014 cruise thru/around the Black Sea and what a disappointment.! We sailed about 18 months ago on the Solstice from Dubai to Singapore and expected a similar experience on the Solsticized Constellation. Lets begin.... Celebrity after much delay finally amended the ports due to the crisis in the Ukraine. They hyped the new ports as if we were going to the ...

Black Sea cruising is usually offered in a limited time period. Since cruise itinerary is my most important criteria for cruise selection and the Celebrity Constellation filled the bill, I booked myself and several good friends (a total of 6 brave souls). In this writing, I will briefly review the ship, list the ports and include a few details of our pre and post cruise adventures. I have sailed ...

Hi, I will write this review in my best English but it is not my mother language so I am sure I will make mistakes, I hope this won't bother the readers too much. We are from the Netherlands and we are 58 and 51 years old. This was our second cruise on Celebrity Constellation. Last year we had a Transatlantic from Miami to Amsterdam. We then found out that the ship is quite small, there was not ...

I’ve read the three preceding reviews of the Black Sea cruise we just completed, and while I don’t doubt the veracity of those reports or the feelings that prompted them, I’m compelled to present a very different report. In short, we had an excellent experience. Although the delayed boarding was unfortunate, given that Celebrity was doing its best to cleanse the ship of the Norovirus, our ...

We had long anticipated a return visit to Black Sea ports, hoping to see the way Ukraine is moving forward, and to enjoy a repeat of previous good Celebrity experience. We were to be in for a deeply disappointing experience. On early arrival at the port , as advised a few days beforehand, we found long queues, and staff waving pieces of paper advising embarkation would be delayed by at leat 4 ...
