We choose this cruise to see India. The ship is very tied and rusting , worn carpet , wooden seats in the dinning room with joints coming apart. The crew do try very hard and give u 110% in effort. The entertainment director is getting away with being payed for sitting on his backside all day. the onboard day time entertainment was non exsistant compared to other cruise lines.There was more entertainment to be found in the casino than over the whole of the boat. The nightly shows in the theatre where great if u where in a nursing home and had not seen any entertainment for a while, really who do they think they are giving us a acrobat show which a 11 year old could perform. Every night at dinner it was a toss of a coin to see if ur drink order would arrive in 30 minutes or under or would arrive at all. The cabin steward did a fantastic job and congratulations to him cabin 9131. The food was the same day in and day out, the quality of food okay but not outstanding. When u travel aqua class and have your own designated dinning room u don't expect to have to wait up to 3/4 hour for a table.The cruise would have been excellent if I had traveled in a inside room, but having table for aquas class I was very disappointed and will never cruise with celebrity again. No one even wants to listen on board when u are offering constructive criticism. Felt very let down and ripped off. Read Less

We chose this cruise because of the itinerary and also because we had cruised with Celebrity on several occasions and on the Constellation. On this occasion we found that the standard has gone down, the food in the main dining room was very ordinary and never hot The service was slow and when the gentleman sitting alongside of us could not attract the wine waiter, he had to get up and go and find him. When the gentleman complained, the wine waiter said he was tired! There was constant pressure to sell the beverage packages and the speciality restaurants. My husband ordered a beer at the pool bar but was refused service because he did not have a premium drinks package. This was reported to guest relations who were shocked, immediately sent for the assistant bar manager. He was very apologetic but my husband still did not get his beer. The pool grey towels were thin and well worn. All in all very disappointing and we will think long and hard before booking with Celebrity again. Read Less

Celebrity Constellation: This is my 10th time on RCI with Celebrity and with over 40 cruises under my belt this one takes the biscuit. When travelling on the now sold Century last year upon checking the mattress we found one of them to be badly stained with urine, so this time we checked again. This time both mattress’s were really badly stained with urine. When pointed out to the cabin steward he tried to say the stains were sweat. I called the deck supervisor who agreed with me it was urine stains and immediately removed them from the cabin. For both to be so badly stained and not newly so, I suggest everyone of you check your mattress before you sleep on any Celebrity ship, as for us this is not an isolated case as to have two in one cabin is simply bad management and supervision of these highly paid via tipping cabin stewards. Food on this cruise was extremely poor quality cuts used and grades of meat along with small quantity portions sizes. No fish available every day on our 14 night cruise, fish available twice on the menu apart from Salmon on the fixed nightly menu. Dessert selection down to 2 which change every night and 2 on the fixed menu. Poor selection overall, very low grade and simply not worth our US$575 per night cruise price paid to be served a meal which costs no more than $3 per head per meal…Celebrity have lost the plot and this abysmal downgrade of food style/quality and quantity is simply not acceptable to a cruise line which advertises itself as premium quality cruise line. The food shown in pictures on their advertisements is nowhere near what is actually being served. The Food and Beverage Director was dismissive of any complaints and actually rude in his demeanour saying all Celebrity ships now serve the same menus and quality of food. I will say, it seems even at $50 a head to upgrade to the celebrity speciality restaurants is a little over the top, considering you have already paid for the food in your expensive ticket price. Is Celebrity going bust or paying the CEO and shareholders so much money, there’s nothing left to feed the guests good quality food anymore. This was my worst cruise experience ever. Read Less

Celebrity Constellation 9 night Arabian cruise Embarkation was a breeze-just 10 mins. Then we were welcomed onboard with champagne on a red carpet. We felt we were treated like royalty!. Our oceanview room was quiet, comfy & spacious, but the bath cubicle was miniscule. On the first day, they had liquer sampling the entire evening, right from 5pm to 9pm. You could sample all liquers on display. Their special discount offers on alcohol were much better than those at duty free airports. They also had a wristwatch & handbag sale (really cheap, only $40 for 5, mix & match) Every morning, on the way to the buffet breakfast, there were pretty girls waiting to give you a FREE sampler head massage. Yes, every morning! On 9 days, we had 4 grand shows, a movie night, a Beatles tribute band, a singer (Jane), a violinist & a pianist, all best of class! So, every night was taken care of. The 4 shows--Welcome, Land of Fantasy (or fairy tales), Dances of the World & Elyria were 45-50 mins each & truly amazing, easily of Broadway standard. The performers also mingled, posed & danced with us throughout the 9 day cruise. They also performed on the pool deck & in the Reflections lounge, in addition to the 4 main shows. One evening, Celebrity even had a special BELLY DANCE show with Middle east delicacy starters & desserts--kababs, Baklava, the works! The passenger vs crew (in full uniform) pool volleyball game was a blast! Unfortunately, nobody showed up or seemed interested in the enrichment health & fitness lectures & we 2 were the only ones who attended every time. The fitness trainers who spoke on health & detoxification, were both experienced & knowledgeable. The buffet lunch had a lot of variety & was very satisfying. There were 6 diff. flavours of icecream & frozen yoghurt, which kept changing daily! Exotic flavors like cherry, pecan, peach, apricot, passion fruit, dark chocolate, banana, strawberry, etc In the main dining room, the dinner & service was fit for a king. Lobster, jumbo prawns, pink salmon, beef steak, tenderloin, et all. Very satisfying, never had any complaint whatsoever. The desserts were so-so. The cruise itinerary was well planned, with 8 port days--2 Abu Dhabi, 3 Dubai, 2 Muscat & 1 Khasab, so enough time for sightseeing at all ports, (except Dubai, which needs at least 7 days to see it all-- Dubai city tour with abra ride, Bastakiya, Al Fahidi fort, Gold souk, Spice souk, Perfume souk; Desert safari, Dubai mall with aquarium & musical fountain show, Burj Khalifa tallest observatory, Mall of the Emirates & Snow city, Global Village, Atlantis the palm, Jumeirah mosque & beach, Burj al Arab, Madinat Jumeirah, Miracle Gardens, Butterfly park, Dinosaur land, Glow City, etc.) Overall I highly recommend this cruise. We got an amazing deal, just $451 per person for 9 nights in an oceanview cabin with $150 onboard credit per person ($300 onboard credit per cabin) !!! Love & God bless, drsel Read Less
