we chose the cruise for the itenary and it was a area we wanted to go to but unfortunately we did not enjoy the "MDR" as the menu did not change we spent most of our time in the buffet where there was plenty choice also the entertainment was very poor indeed the main dance/singers only done 4 shows in the 15 day cruise not what we expected at all the house bands well to be honest a pub band would of been better the cruise director (Paul) he does not have a clue how to entertain most of the entertainment he done was game show style or putting round a restaurant and that's meant to be 5 star as for the ship itself we could not fault it very clean indeed the ship staff very friendly but it lacked atmosphere on the pool decks mainly at night the bars were all empty no music or dancing going on and we were not the only passengers to notice this some are celebrity regulars would we go with celebrity again I doubt it unless the rely look at all the areas that need to be looked at Read Less

Sorry as an extremely seasoned cruisers this was the first time sailing with Celebrity and we were very disappointed. The ship was definitely no 5* the cabin was shabby the bed covers needed updating it was shabby, the towels and flannels etc needed throwing out, the entertainment was not great and the service mediocre. Having said that our cabin steward and our waiters were satisfactory. Our over all impression of the company was that they have a policy of harassment towards their guests to get as much money out of you as they possibly can. We succumbed to buying a drink package on board but on days at sea there was hardly anywhere that you could get a drink before late afternoon. You basically had to be up on deck at the pool bar or the other option was the specialist coffee area where you could get very limited alcoholic drinks or fancy coffee. On sea days the coffee area was totally overwhelmed it was hopeless trying to find a seat or get a drink. Even until the last day of the cruise the pressure to buy another cruise or buy a dinner in one of the speciality restaurants it made us cringe with embarrassment. We have never experienced such relentless selling on any other cruise line and how they have a 5* status confounds us so we do not intend to back on a Celebrity Cruise again. Read Less

Family of 4 in 2 ocean view balcony cabins. We have sailed on Connie before . The public areas are very clean and well maintained. The staterooms are showing their age, however very clean. She is booked for a refit later this year. This will put more life into this beautiful ship. The staff are probably the best we have sailed with. The food in MDR was a very high standard as was the buffet. We had a drinks package ( not premium ) which was very good. We had one meal in Quisine, this was very interesting, but we ate far too much food ! Ordering was an experience in its self, but that is the idea of this restaurant. The entertainment crew worked very hard. On board singers and dancers very excellent, would have liked to see more of them. Their afternoon Broadway singing show was as good as any show I have seen. Guest performers were mostly very good. 1- Singapore. Arrived 1 day early. Pre booked a taxi in uk which did not arrive. The taxi rank at the airport is very efficient and much cheaper than we paid in uk. Lovely city , we need to explore more. Just managed the hop on / off bus which was good value. Taxi driver recommended a local restaurant / cafe called chin chin- the food was delicious and cheap- we were the only non local people and they were very happy to serve us. If you just want good food would recommend- but it is like a cafe. 2 - Phuket- ship tendered. Pre booked a tour in uk with Go Phuket. Guide arrived promptly at 10 am as stated. She was lovely and we had a mini bus for 6 which gave us a very interesting tour of the area and included a beautiful meal at a very clean beach front restaurant. Would 100% recommend this company, very good value. 3- Columbo Sri Lanka- very busy town. Pre booked a tour called Tuk Tuk Safari. This was amazing and we felt like royalty - the ladies given flower garlands and a coconut to drink. Also snacks and cold beer provided. We were transported around the city to see the temples and markets. Lunch also provided in a local curry house served on a leaf. I paid £136 for 4 of us and it was a highlight of our trip. 4 Cochin- immigration was very organised and we were off the ship very early. We booked a trip via a company called carnival on a house boat. It took about 1.5 hour to get there. The bus journey was interesting as this is a very busy place. The house boat tour was 2.5 hours with lunch prepared on the boat. It was very tranquil, but maybe a little too long. However very cheap in comparison to the ships tour which arrived and left at the same time. 5- Goa- Our room attendant was from Goa. We wanted a beach day and he recommended Majorda beach. We paid for a taxi at he port. The taxi booking spot is next to the money exchange just off the ship. We paid £30 ( on card ) 45 min drive to beach and the driver waited. It was lovely with shaded sun beds. Free wifi from the bar. Lots of beach sellers who pestered until you bought from them. The clothes however were very nice and cheap. Mumbia - 2 day stay. Booked a trip in uk with Amaze tours. Our guide was brilliant. We were in a private taxi and he took us everywhere the ship trip went to for a fraction of the cost. On day 2 we did the slum tour with the same company, also had a train ride as part of the tour. This was so interesting and we all enjoyed it. Mumbia was mostly very clean, noisy, colourful and very interesting. Muscat- we just walked into the town to the Souk. There was a hop on / off bus which was expensive. The town is clean and looks stunning from the ship. Dubai - Docked at 12. We had a free transfer to the mall on the hop on /off bus from the port but decided to buy a day ticket. It was expensive for 4 . Approx £55 each. The are 3 routes and we only managed 2 in the time we had. This was a shame as Dubia is amazing. I think it would have been better to miss MUscat and have 2 days in Dubia. Will need to return. Abu Dhabi - did not see as we flew home from Dubia so just got a taxi to the airport. 1.5 hours transfer and very reasonable. Read Less

We chose this cruise because of where Connie was taking us, we hadn't been to Colombo, Cochin, Goa, Mumbai, Muscat or Abu Dhabi. (We had been to Phuket and Dubai several times before). After reading many reviews about Connie before, we really didn't know what to expect as there were so many conflicting reviews both good, bad and ugly. So I've decided to write a review on our experience on aboard and Connie in general. Connie herself is in great shape, nice and clean and everything was working on board, with no smells. In regards to activities onboard there were many choose from, but we chose to relax and just take in the sun on sea days and venture out when docked at all the ports. In regards to Shore Excursions we did choose one from the ship, but it turned out terrible so we complained and received a 30% refund. To be fare to the Shore Excursion team it was the tour guide who was terrible not the places we visited. Cabin, WOW we had no idea that it was going to be that BIG, we had an Oceanview Category 4 Stateroom Number 8003 and our cabin attendant was absolutely superb. Dining was easy, we just rocked up and asked to sit with 6 other guests and within a couple of minutes we were seated and every night apart from 2 nights we sat with different guests and the food was great, we tried just about everything they had on the menus, with top service all around. Entertainment on board this cruise was really really good compared to some horror stories we heard, in fact all over the ship the entertainment was good. The Ports, well what can I say they were simply fabulous, Phuket jus simply laid back and just did what we wanted to do that included catching up with friends (using free Wifi of course), Colombo it was a pretty place and would like to go back again and spend more time, Cochin, well we kind of liked it but Goa and Mumbai were much much better and overall we thought India was kind of organised chaos. Muscat was a beautiful city where the mountains reach out and touched the sea and the city and harbour met. Aub Dhabi, did'n really do any thing for us, it looked like another suburb of Abu Dhabi. Now for the best part, on Connie there is this special place called the Martini Bar, we lived there every night of the cruise just meeting the most loverly people you could ever meet from all over the globe and the 4 bar tenders put on the best Martini/Cocktail shows I ever seen, pouring 15 Cocktails in one go, it was simply the best, well done lads. Overall we had a WOW of a time on Connie will be sailing on her again in the very near future. Read Less

After a gruelling but uneventful 13 hour flight to Singapore with BA we walked from Arrivals (not far at all) to the Crowne Plaza, which was obviously WAY out of Singapore centre, Why oh why Celebrity? It was a lovely hotel but we were a 'captive audience' with no choice of eateries etc. and no chance to see the beauty of the city at night. Bad choice Celebrity! The following morning we were transported to the dock as normal. Embarkation was no trouble. It was lovely to be back on the 'Connie' once again! She was just how we remembered her but now a little tired and in need of a facelift perhaps. We love the layout of this class of Celebrity ship. Not too large to get around and sensible sized lounges etc. (Unlike some of the newer ships we've encountered). Due to the early arrival, the cabin was not ready, no biggie. Spent a while in the buffet with friends who had travelled in from another part of the World. The food was up to the standard we have come to expect from Celebrity and there was plenty of choice. Our cabin was on deck eight and the balcony protruded further than many on the ship. This gave us an uninterrupted view along the length of the vessel. Although a decent size with adequate storage, the cabin appeared somewhat smaller than on the likes of Silhouette, Reflection etc. and again showed some signs of age. Brilliant cabin steward! Our first encounter with the main dining room was quite disappointing it has to be said! The food was quite poorly cooked and tasted as if it been stood under a heat lamp for a while. Not a great start. Sadly it never really improved. Although were persevered with the dining room most evenings, and there were a few very good dishes during the cruise, it was certainly below the standard we have become used to with Celebrity and far short of our experience on Independence of the Seas, last June. The dining room staff and waiters were brilliant, no request was 'too much trouble'. As a musician myself I'm naturally quite critical of the standard of entertainers, musicians etc. on a cruise ship. The bands were of a good standard overall and the 'House Band' that backed most of the guest acts were brilliant. BUT as on most ships, the sound in the theatre was quite poor to my ears. It lacked punch and the bass player might as well have not been there as there was SO little bass content in the mix. Come on cruise lines, stop employing sound engineers with a 'theatre' background and get some rock 'n' roll guys in, your audience is changing! We didn't really see much of the other music acts on board so can't really comment. The guest artistes were all really good apart from a so called Elton John tribute who was dreadful! I've seen much better in the local clubs in the UK. Being of a certain age we didn't get involved in any physical activities on board but really enjoyed the daily quizzes on sea days and the port lectures were very informative, if a little over cautious about going-it-alone in ports. Which brings me on to shore excursions. First port of call was Phuket. We made the choice to take a local tour mini bus from the dock side. What a fabulous decision! The vehicle was brand new and had been 'pimped' to a very high standard inside. A great driver who took us to the Big Buddha (breathtaking) and an area where there were a number of temples/mosques and market stalls, fabulous. He then dropped us at The Hard Rock Cafe later. Phuket, one of the highlights of the trip! Colombo was our next port. We took an excursion via the ship. A brilliant local guide took us to a couple of points of interest including the Independence Memorial Hall and the National museum. Not enough time was given to enjoy the museum! We finished the tour with tea on the veranda at the very upmarket Galle Face Hotel, which was an enjoyable experience. Overall, not a brilliant tour as much of it was spent in the bus in traffic. (to be expected in the this part of the World I guess) so wouldn't do it again. My advice, take a local trip off the dockside. Cochin was next, our first real taste of India and that's what we got! The taste of pollution was with us from the time we hit the dock. (not literally) :) Again we foolishly took a trip via the ship. We were first taken to a ramshackle Shiva temple which was closed! A very unpicturesque building, so little point in taking us there. We then drove to Church of St. Francis, Fort Kochi which in its own way was quite beautiful but drab and fairly uninteresting. Some of the folks then walked to see some Chinese fishing nets which were quite a distance, we didn't bother as we'd seen them previously whilst driving. Which is really what the body of the trip consisted of, driving through traffic, it was hideous! We were so pleased to see the ship again! Don't bother doing that excursion. Which brings me on to Goa, our next port. I'm a collector of Hard Rock Cafe/Hotel pins (badges) so we always endeavour to make it to any HRC in the ports visited. In this case it was a HR Hotel in the Saligao district of Goa. As none of the trips offered on the ship went near to the hotel, we (foolishly) decided to take a private excursion offered by Celebrity Cruises at a cost of $800!!!! We gave them our desired points of interest including the Reis Magos fort, which was recommended to us, plus assorted temples etc. We were quite excited about this tour, a private vehicle, a guide plus wonderful points of interest, what could be better? Most of it basically! The bus was old and rickety, the guide arrived late and the fort was closed! What angered us was, there were bus loads of Constellation guests already in the fort when we arrived (although the fort WAS officially closed on that day) but we were NOT allowed in despite our tour being booked on the ship! We were granted a 10% discount off a future tour and a small refund by the tour desk but this really didn't make up for the pretty poor experience sadly. But at least we had lunch at The Hard Rock Hotel and I bought pins and a tee shirt! We didn't know quite what to expect in Mumbai. Having watched various travelogue progs on TV we had preconceived ideas about India I guess. Our guide was fabulous! She was SO interesting and genuine. In keeping with other ports, the traffic and pollution was excessive, to be expected. We were taken to the Gateway to India (obligatory), the Victorian railway station and Ghandi's house plus a few other sights. Altogether an enjoyable day! We were overnight in Mumbai but didn't go ashore the second day. After a couple of days at sea we arrived in Muscat, Oman. The highlight of the cruise!! Pristine is the word that sums up the city. Not a scrap of rubbish or debris on the streets, beautifully kept road-sides, roundabouts and public places. Our guide on the ship-booked excursion was superb and a really lovely man with SO much knowledge about not only his country but the whole of the middle east in general. We were escorted to the most spectacular Sultan Qaboos Grand Mosque, about half an hours' drive from Muscat centre. You HAVE to see this if you visit Muscat! We then went to the Mutrah souq where one can buy anything from clothing to lamps. An absolutely wonderful and enriching day! Having looked forward to seeing Dubai (and getting to another Hard Rock Cafe) for a long time, it turned out to be quite disappointing! For a start it was cold and I made the big mistake of travelling in to the centre on the top deck of the bus! The bus we were actually taking the tour on was picked up at a terminus outside the Dubai Mall. Chaos reigned there with people trying to jump the queue to get out of the cold wind. After already losing an hour of our day we managed to get on the bus and begin the rather tedious tour of Dubai. SO many road works and building sites. The traffic was hideous (I believe I've used that word before). We didn't get off the bus until we arrived at the WAFI Mall where we needed to get a cab to the Hard Rock cafe which is in the Festival City Mall way out of the centre. The cabs are so well priced! Probably our fault but we didn't enjoy our day in Dubai much as we made little effort to see 'the sites' as such, plus it was very cold. Maybe return someday? Our final destination and point of departure was Abu Dhabi, a day later. As we were there overnight we thought we would be able to take a walk around parts of the city after being dropped off at the hotel. NAH! Once again Celebrity had decided to stick us in the Novotel Al Bustan out near the airport! Why Celebrity?? It was a super hotel though and we were able to get a cab to a nearby mall to eat and do a little last minute shopping, as you do. The downside was, we had to leave the hotel at 4am as we were flying from (you guessed it) Dubai, where we had been a day earlier!! No problems at the airport as we were there before the cleaners had finished their work having taken only an hour and a quarter to drive from Abu Dhabi. A lovely breakfast at Giraffe Cafe, Terminal 1 was very welcome. Such a shame the HRC Dubai Airport is in Terminal 3 so I couldn't get there. Hey Ho. Summing up (please do)! It was a wonderful cruise on the Celebrity Constellation and we enjoyed most of the experiences both on board and on land. We would highly recommend this cruise if you've not been to this wondrous part of the world. So much culture with some spectacular vistas to behold and remember for the rest of your days on the planet. My advice, for what it's worth, ignore most of the excursions offered on board (expensive and not good value generally) and go for a local mini bus and driver/guide found on the dockside in most ports. Ask to see the bus before committing as they vary widely in age and quality and HAGGLE! We (four people) got a full day tour in a brand new bus in Phuket for $150 US. Wonderful memories! Read Less

The ports of call, length of travel (15days) and ship amenities were the reason we choose this cruise. We sailed out of Abu Dhabi and will end our cruise in Singapore. Pros: the staff is extremely polite, friendly and helpful, most seems genuinely happy to be part of the celebrity family. Room size along with veranda is adequate- of course, always love a larger room if possible. Shore excursions were well organized. Cons: rooms and entire ship is in desperate need of updating, the ship is worn and quite sad. Our room furnishing were similar to a budget motel quality. Shore excursions thruthe ship were quite expensive and we found them to be a waste of time, we wished we had stayed on shop or hired a private driver (which we did in Mumbai). Food in the main dining room is standard, nothing very desirable, we feel as if we’re in a school cafeteria competing with aggressive students! The speciality restaurant experience is quite nice but more money (we did 4 nights). We drink very little alcohol beverages so we opted this cruise to skip the beverage package- we were harassed to the point of aggression the first three days on board to purchase drink packages even after explaining that we don’t drink alcoholic beverages and very little soft drinks (doesn’t make sense to buy drink packages when we are off the ship more then half the time). Although, it is quite annoying paying for water, I would rather crease the cost of cruise then be nickel and dimed over water, etc. Ice machines are always broken, empty or shut down which is unfortunate as temps are very high. Did not appreciate several days being exposed to lacquer paint during poolside time- why do they not paint while we are in shore excursions or early morning?? This ship did not have as many dining choices as others do. Read Less

The ship was very comfortable, the staff friendly and couldn't do enough for us. Everything you needed was there for you. Our waiters Rohan and Alfred looked after us extremely well in the San Marco Restaurant, we would like to highlight their excellent service. We would do this cruise again as there was so much to see and do. There were excellent shows in the theatre, from tributes to Stevie Wonder, Elton John, Phil Collins to the brilliant show that the cruise dancers out on for us. I particularly enjoyed the martini bar! An overall fantastic experience. We did lots of city tours which were very educational especially with all of the different religions and cultures, but very busy; next time we would do the more relaxed tours of the beaches and scenery. The weather was extremely hot and we found our welcome back to the ship after our tours the 'best feeling in the world' with iced towels, fresh cold water and welcoming smiles from the staff.

We chose this cruise because of the itinerary. We had an amazing time on board and had a great time in port , going to some wonderful destinations . The ship was lovely , nicely decorated and furnished tastefully . Our outside cabin was on deck 3, 3116 and I would recommend this room it was so nice and the amazing window just superb for us . The food in the main dining room was great every night and the staff couldn't be more helpful and attentive . The cafe and bars in the day were just as good , we couldn't really fault it . The entertainment day and evening was varied and enjoyable . I would recommend celebrity cruises , oh and we even had lobster one evening Read Less

Chance to visit cities in UAE,Oman,India,Sri Lanka and Singapore all within a 17 day cruise.Also took a 2 day hotel add on in Abu Dhabi at the start of the holiday and a similar stay in Singapore at the end. The cruise lived up to all expectations with food,service and entertainment of a very high standard.For peace of mind we booked all our shore excursions through Celebrity and enjoyed them all immensely.Highlights were a trip on the Viceroy train in Columbo and the Mumbai tour where our guide,a lovely lady of a certain age,insisted on still calling the city Bombay! Also not to be missed is a visit to the Grand Mosque in Abu Dhabi,although this was undertaken during our pre cruise city stay. Entertainment was of a high standard,particularly in the theatre on the 3 "evening chic"nights where some spectacular trapeze work was performed by two talented aerial artistes.The performances of the regular dance troupe in their spectacular costumes were also a delight. We booked a sky suite which gave us access to the excellent facilities food and service available in the Luminae restaurant and Michael's lounge.This booking also came with personal embarkation and disembarkation services which were much appreciated.

We chose the cruise because we were interested in going to Vietnam. We had reservations about going on an American ship and it did have some of the problems we anticipated. The worst was the incredibly high price of drinks etc. £10 for a pint of beer £40 for. A reasonable bottle of. Wine. The entertainment was excellent and food average. The Cabins were adequate with. A good shower. The worst problem we found was lack of quiet space round the pool and generally every venue was noisy. The lectures we had were good but poorly attended. On other cruises we have had free shuttle buses to the nearest town here we were expected to find our own or pay exhorbitant ships excursion prices. Basically if you want lots of loud music and can afford the drinks and enjoy films under the stars we prefer just the stars. It’s probably for you. Read Less

Just returned from the Arabian Sea Adventure on Celebrity Constellation. Have to say we were a bit worried by all the reviews after we had booked and many said the ship was tired and well worn. Well, I do not know which part they were looking at, but we found it to be wonderful everywhere. The beautiful coordinated furniture, comfy chairs and multiple lounge areas were superb. (so often there is no where to sit on a cruise ship and coffee shops etc are so full you end up back in your cabin!) We would recommend Celebrity to anyone who wants a truly wonderful ship; fantastic staff; superb food and great staterooms to book with Celebrity. We have not been on other ships in the Celebrity fleet, but will certainly have Celebrity on the top of our future cruise company list before booking elsewhere. (NB: We are not first timers - we have cruised with many other companies and Celebrity certainly comes top with us). The food was exceptional in every area. The Buffet food was great with variety and really good quality food. This was unfortunately marred by seeing other guests who ate wearing just a vest - dreadful; the other restaurants were stunning and it was lovely to have the 'chique' nights too. As a Sky Suite passenger, we were fortunate enough to eat in Lumiere most of the time, which was exceptional in every detail. Plus having Michaels lounge as a little hideaway was truly brilliant. Nadia and her team really made every day a wonderful experience. Read Less

We chose this cruise for the intinery to India because if we had a choice we would go for a larger ship. We did a repo cruise three weeks earlier on the same ship and the experience on the ship was very different on this cruise. There were approximately 1,200 English on the ship which we are not used to and it really changed the atmosphere. There were also a large number of children and teenagers which again we are not used to. It was our first Christmas and New Years cruise and we don’t think that we’ll be doing another. We usually cruise November and up to mid December, less large family groups and children. Ship life was as you would expect for Celebrity. We had a Sky Suite on deck 6 and they are beginning to show their age. Luminae was great as usual and still remains one of the best benefits for us as well as Michael’s and the benefits of the concierge there which if you use them are a great added bonus, you just have to remember to use them. Due to high volumes of guests using the pool areas and their insistence on the saving of chairs the pool butlers seemed on a few occasions to lose control and it all looked very messy and a type of “free for all”. We did all our excursions privately saving about half on the ship prices. Best value was in Mumbai when we contacted the concierge at the Taj Hotel to arrange pickup at the port to the hotel for lunch and then four hours sightseeing with guide and then back to port. Excluding lunch this was €110, car was a new Mercedes with a uniformed chauffeur. Read Less

We chose this cruise for its itinerary, which ended with the F1 . The check in was chaotic, but once on-board that was soon forgotten. Our cabin was at the rear of the ship with a large balcony, this was ideal for our cruising through the Suez canal, offering panoramic views. My personal opinion is that some excursions were over priced but I know others on-board were happy with them. Entertainment was good and varied. No problems with the sunbed but think that was more down to the demographics of passengers. We enjoyed the dining in the main dining room and requested the same location every night as we had an amazing waiter. On previous Celebrity cruises we've struggled to find somewhere to sit at Cafe Al Balcio, this time we never had a problem and enjoyed a coffee while watching the world go by. Would highly recommend this itinerary. Read Less

we selected the best of shri lanka and asia as we had never been to any of the ports of call. from that perspective really good but the ship was not up to usual celebrity standards. very tired and in need of refit which is scheduled for early May. the cruise line did not make us aware and the cruise was at full price with no discounts for condition. the food was only average and the entertainment well below what we have enjoyed on previous Celebrity cruises. the tours were all expensive and not well described - too many visits to jewel stores but with no time to look around even if you wanted to buy (45 mins). these were key stops even though we expected to visit temples, mosques and more interesting places. would not recommend to any one else and suggest careful check with cruise line before committing to a vacation Read Less

Onlinevacationcenter.com had a very attractive price to SE Asia, so we chose this cruise We have sailed to this destination before on a different cruise line, but were pleasantly surprised by Celebrity. The entertainment was the best we have ever experienced, and the dining quality was the best, also. Embarkation and disembarking were very well organized and smooth. Ships employees were very friendly and helpful, always greeting you with a smile and a squirt of Purell. The buffet was large with numerous choices, all of which were tasty. The nightlife for late night dancing or having a drink was very active with a lot of people on the dance floor. The band was very good, and played a large variety of music. We stayed in a Singapore hotel for two nights before our cruise started, and one night when we returned to Singapore. Will definitely give Celebrity the first consideration on furure cruises.

My husband and I had high expectations for this cruise as we had been told Celebrity were one of the best cruise lines. How disappointed were we!!! Extortionate excursion prices, ports far to far from 'civilisation', no information regarding ports unless you signed up to one of their excursions, we were charged $45 for a coach trip that we could have purchased from the dock for $2. When I complained I was told by very unhelpful excursion staff that 'that was the price and nothing they could do about it' There was continually pressure from staff to 'upgrade' either the drinks package or the dining experiences. Everything was about extra spending!!!! The ship is very dated and in dire need of refurbishment. The cabin was adequate. Bar service and dining service were good and all staff in these areas were friendly. Bar entertainment was poor, however, the shows (particularly the production team) were excellent . We have cruised many times before and used various cruise liners but we will not use Celebrity again ! Read Less

We loved visiting Singapore and loved traveling on Celebrity. Not only Singapore, but Vietnam, Hong Kong, Manila, and Malaysia. This was a great itinerary and Port of call were quite interesting. Traveling on the Celebrity, Constellation was truly enjoyable. One major compliment is "how clean they managed to keep and shine the ship" which made us feel safe from catching any dreaded deceases or cold. The crew was terrific and the service was wonderful and we couldn't have had a better experience. We met several people doing a back to back and we were wishing we had planned to continue rather than going home. We met several great people that we will continue to communicate with. The tours that we took were well organized and made it easy to see the highlights of the cities without standing in too many lines. We haven't cruised as many times as lots of the people but look forward do many more. Read Less
