This is the 2nd cruise we sailed with Celebrity, we were impressed with Eclipse last year and decide to join another cruise with Celebrity. This is a slightly smaller and older ship than the Eclipse, but we still had a lot of fun in this 9 nights cruise trip. First of all, we love the shows at night, the performances, singer and dancers did a fantastic jobs, we caught the show every evenings and make sure we don't miss it. The onboard activities were Okay, a lot of them are the same as what we played last year, so it is a bit lack of surprise for us, but the games are still fun to watch. We still had a great time. We did not go to the specialty dinning, so we stayed at St-Marco Dinning room for your dinner. They updated the menu everyday with plenty of choices. We tried a lot of different food everyday and they had Lobster Tail and Scallops which are my favorite! We also had our breakfast and sometimes lunch and snacks at OceanCafe, honestly the food are getting a bit boring. They did change their Chef Specials everyday, but other than that, the other food in the buffet was very similar everyday. With a cruise of 9 nights, you may get bored. My wife went to their morning sketch a couple of times early in the morning, but other dance or yoga class has to pay, so we skipped that. The gym was clean and the machines were fairly new. They have a basketball court, which is often forgotten by a lot of guests. I spent a good 45 minutes there while at the sea. The basketball are a bit old and some of time are not pumped. Service was great, there were officers teaching us to use the new App on Board, which is very useful to see the daily activities and communicate with your cruise mates and family on board. Most of the staff are very friendly and had smile with them at all time. However, my steward's job was really bad. First, she never come greet us or come talk to us during the 9 nights of the cruise. Second, she always forgot stuff in our room. For example, we had no agenda for a couple day, toiletries not refilled, no clean towels. Dirty cups are not taking away, etc. It was horrible, and we decide to talk to the guest relation after 1 week. They sent a steward supervisor to talk to us and apologized, and they gave us a follow call the days after to make sure our room and supplies are Okay. I would say that it could be just a bad individual who didn't properly do her job and not Celebrity's standard. Overall, the ship is clean and easy to navigate. We like Celebrity and have great experience at the ship, but we like to see Celebrity creating more new activities, providing more and different foods in OceanCafe daily, so it keep their guest impressed with this Premium Cruiseline.

After reading a fair few negative reviews I was rather worried about our trip. I had no need to be! The ship was beautiful, all areas were spotlessley clean and regularly kept that way. It had been reported that some public areas were in need of repair and showed wear and tear, we didn't see any area that wasn't wonderfully tended too. Our cabin, 6000 was surprisingly spacious and kept cleaned by our stateroom attendant Henry who was fantastic. The food was excellent in all restaurants. The bars were lovely and relaxing and the shows in the theatre of Broadway standard. Our 11 year old son was happy to spend time with his pals on the sports deck playing football and basketball. The itinary was great and we saw some lovely places. The crew treat you like royalty and all in all we had a wonderful time. I would not hesitate sailing with Celebrity again. The outdoor cinema on the rooftop terrace was a fabulous treat. Lots of lovely memories made. Read Less

My wife and I made this cruise to get rest, and this is what we got but we have some comments about the trip The crew and the overall situation was wat we expected for a 4 star cruise but the dining situation was not something for a 4 star cruise ship it look more a standard meal on a ferry for truckdrivers than for people who made a cruise for a lot of money. several times we ask wat is there on ore plate can you give me a magnifying glass almost no vis to get alone mead and a very little complements but overcook and toastless. This is for the ala carte restaurant and the buffet I have eat for 6 days steak so that I have the feeling that there was something in my stomach. A other point of cretic is that every time we want of the ship in a port we need to pay extra for this bus ore the tender something We want to know before we made the trip. This don’t mean that we don’t enjoy or trip in the Mediterranean zee We enjoy the ship, crew and the company of the rest of the passengers. All to all We missed the cherry on the cake and this for a 4 star cruise. Read Less

This was our third cruise with Celebrity. It was a disappointment at all levels . It was a big step down from our experience from two years ago with Celebrity Equinox. This was a Mediterranean cruise . It was no entertainment on deck in the evening. It was no fitness or other outdoor activities like the previous Celebrity cruise. It was a lack of service and amenities. It was also a big disappointment in food quality and diversity . Food that we enjoyed at the buffet in the past now we had to go to special restaurants and pay extra. My husband and I had classic beverage packege but to get your cappuccino you had to go to the 5 th floor from 10th floor in order to get it . It was no cappuccino machine at any outdoor bars and any other indoor bars except the 5 th floor. People who catered to us were great but not to many of them ... Many times I had to clean my table and waiters were no where to be found. Overall it was not a good experience Read Less

This was the second time that I was on this ship. First time was great (the year before). This time it was terrible. It all started when boarding. I had a couple of bottles of wine in my suitcase which you are allowed and they held on to it in security. I was not informed and had to go get it myself. The food in the café was terrible. People were saving the pea soup was yesterdays guacamole. Food was cold except for the Jello with was warm and runny. Amazing difference a year makes. Entertainment was exactly the same shows from the crew. In the cabin you could here water running through the pipes until 2 a.m.. The plumbing stopped working a couple of times. A pipe burst 2 down from us and flooded much of the area with hot water. I was not kept informed of what was happening and the officers did not answer any questions. All cruise long, we had to deal with wet floors, wiring hanging down, and equipment all over the place. They worked on this problem day and night so sleep never happened. Even an officer got made at me because I was complaining to other passengers but still did nothing. The only thing I heard from the ship is when one of the crew made a joke about it around the pool. Even at one port you had to pay to get off the ship and be transferred to town even though there was a spot at the dock for free transfers to town in which other cruise lines used including Royal Caribbean This was my tenth cruise (fourth with Celebrity) and that is where it ends Read Less

Enjoyable experience from start to finish! The itinerary was the biggest factor in selecting this ship. Great ports of call. Entertainment was excellent! Onboard activities were fun and engaging. Port & shore excursions were great! The ship was smaller than Solstice class ships we had taken before but we adjusted to the layout of the Ocean Cafe and dining room seating. We prefer separate food stations. All cruise staff were attentive and very friendly. Ship is a bit old and in need of an update. Cabin needs more storage and bathroom shows signs of age. The deck furniture was old and showed signs of wear and tear. Furnishings are dated and too dark. The lounges were dim and quite small. Overall, we had a great time and have beautiful memories. We took many pictures at the various ports and on the excursions. Our next Med. cruise is planned on the Eclipse. Read Less

Husband had a big birthday. Liked the sound of all the stops. Booked an aqua class cabin and very pleased with it. Comfortable bed and Martin kept it very clean and organised. We had use of Blu restaurant which was lovely food and service excellent. Staff in Blu really looked after us. We went to the Tuscan restaurant and so good we went again. Also went to Qsine but not that impressed. Food not that interesting and dessert made me feel sick! We had a drinks package which worked well for us although we are not big drinkers. Pina coladas round the pool very nice though! Pools very good but a little cold at times. Indoor pool lovely and warm like a bath! Jacuzzis warm and restful! Everything worked like clockwork though but it was a very early start on coming home day had to be up at 5 in the morning for 7 pick up. Would we go again YESdefinitely had the most fantastic and memorable holiday Read Less

Travelled with 2 other couples. This cruise has been on our bucket lists and we finally were able to take this cruise. We did stay in Venice for 3 days before boarding the Constellation. Very impressed. To start, our room 8003 was amazing. An Oceanview at the front of the ship was huge. No balcony, but the extra space made up for that. Could have fit another queen bed in there and still have room to move. I have a little bit of mobile issues and stayed around the ship one day instead of doing shore excursions. Our room Stewart checked with me a few times that day when he saw me to make sure all was well, and asked if he could do or help with anything. ( Charlie was his name) all the staff we found to be so kind and fun loving. Very polite and always smiling. The food was excellent. We ate at the spa, the buffet, the dining room, the bistro, and the Tuscan grill. The only complaint we had was there was too much food.the evening shows were great..comedians, music, bands, and the silent disco is a hoot. The main reasons we took this cruise, was the cruise line and the ports. We did do our own private excursions. The ship is not overly big. I found it quite comfortable with my mobility issues. I did not use my cane at all. The age group on the ship was also great..averaged 35 and up. Not too many children. Saw maybe 8 or 10. Even the passengers were friendly with one another. We decided to book on the Silhouette next November. Love this cruise line Read Less

We chose this ship and date due to it's ports as some of us hadn't been to them. The Constellation was magnificent in it's new décor. Our steward Neil was exceptional, his charm, and efficiency were above board. The dining room staff, Alexander and Alexandre were incredible. Details they remembered, the friendliness and kindness were fantastic. We enjoyed our breakfast in our cabin which the service was great. One of the best features (there were many) the ice cold washcloths returning to the ship. We had a fabulous experience by being invited to the helicopter pad to view our entrance into Venice, this was extraordinary. Our Mater D was very kind, the only annoying problem was the loud music selection, you couldn't hear your friends right across our small table. Qsine was awesome, very unique in presentation, food fantastic...desert menu fun. all in all this was a great experience and Celebrity ranks as #1 to us. Read Less

We chose this cruise mainly for the destinations, secondly for the dates, thirdly for the duration. We cannot fault the service given throughout the cruise from all the staff we encountered, waiters, cabin staff, bar staff were all a joy to speak to, they couldn't be more helpful, and in many cases they were funny and amusing, a great credit to the ship and the cruise company they work for. The entertainment was not to be missed, it was brilliant, the resident ships entertainers were producing productions close to West end standards, the individual guest entertainers were also excellent, they had us in stitches. Embarkation and disembarking procedures couldn't be faulted in both cases. The ship as a whole is in good condition, a little tired here and there but not worth making a statement about. Cleanliness throughout couldn't be faulted, food exceeded all expectations, nothing was too much trouble for any of the waiters. Now the bad bits for us, from the moment we stepped on board we were attacked with offers for drink packages, it was hard sell! We are not teetotallers but just occasional drinkers, the odd glass of wine or beer in the evening even a glass of spirit if it took our fancy. The cheapest package for drinks per person worked out at 45 dollars plus 18% service charge per day, over the 10 day period that would have been 531 dollars per person, equating to approximately £415 each or £830 per couple. We didn’t feel that was an option we wanted to follow, we decided to buy drinks as and when desired, just a few examples a small baileys would come to 10 dollars (£7.81) each and a small wine approx $8.5 (£6.64) both of these items had 18% service charge added additionally, now making the bailey’s £9.22 and the wine £7.83. Having cruised with Thompson and P&O we have always found that the drinks on both these cruise lines were very reasonably priced, maybe this factor should be considered when booking another cruise? Our next little gripe is the excursion prices, unfortunately this is not indigenous to Celebrity cruises, as everyone knows this is widespread throughout the cruising industry, maybe if the trips were more reasonable more people would use them and thus probably make more profit for the cruise companies in the long run, on the other hand maybe the cruise companies are themselves being ripped off by the tour excursion operators and they should themselves make a stand to reduce prices, who knows, but what is known is that the majority of people can afford the cruises but then adding on the excursions takes it to another level.
