We went on this cruise, last year and loved it! It is a very relaxing cruise.I could write a lot about the constellation but it would all be excellent so that is all that I'll say. Look for Waiter Joey, from the Philippines. He is fantastic. We did not Visit Stavenger. We visited Skjolden, instead, which was a beautiful stop. We booked all tours on the ship, but did a couple stops on our own. I'll give you a quick list of our tours. I'd recommend looking them up on the internet. Bergen = Funicular Train on our own. Easy to walk to. We hiked down from the mountain. There is a very nice walking trail. Olden = Bus takes you to the area. Walk to Briksdal Glacier. It is a long scenic walk. It is not too steep, but it is strenuous. This is a must-see, if you can handle a 3 mile walk. Molde = It rained that day so not very scenic. went to an old German Bunker and then to the Ocean Road. It would have been very nice if it didn't rain. Alesund = We went on a bus tour of the Troll Road. Very nice and Scenic. Geiranger = This was our favorite port. It is absolutely beautiful. Went up to the top of Mt. Dalsniba(saw reindeer), by bus, to the visitor center, then to Eagle Bend Lookout. You can look down from the top of the mountain and see the cruise ship in the Fjord, below. If you are a photo-buff, you need to get up early to take photos of the Seven-Sisters and the Suitor Waterfalls, in the morning light, as the ship comes down the fjord. They are across from each other. The captain may stop there on the way out, in the evening. Flaam = We found that the Flaam Railway was over hyped. We took a bus trip to the town of Voss(home of Knute Rockne) which was okay. We then took the Flaam Railway back to the port. It lets you off right at the ship. The train is very crowded and makes one stop at a famous waterfall. Oslo = We did this on our own. Bought a ticket on a Ho-Ho bus which are available outside by the ship. You can buy them online or at the pier. There are lots of things to see in Oslo. We visited the following: Vigeland Park, The Viking Museum, the Fram Museum, The Maritime Museum, The Palace(changing of the guard), The City hall is a must-see. there is also a fortress by the ship that you can see when you return. I did this all from memory, so don't be upset if I made a mistake or two. Please look these sights up on the internet. This was a great cruise. We did it back-to back with the Baltic Cruise. If we did it over, we'd do the Baltic Cruise first, as it was very busy and hectic. Hope this helps. I'm sure you will love it! Dennis and Carol Tiernan Read Less

1. not friendly welcome - other cruises a big party, this... you're here, and so what 2. Food served only by staff. a. First day virtually all servers not friendly improved over cruise, but not all happy to be serving. b. Really slowed meal times large lines by stations at busy times c. Servers hard to find at some stations non-busy times d. Tables had signs "This table has been sanitized" and, had in fact, been wiped down with a disinfectant. The problem was that, in many cases, they were moving mud around the table. The table was sanitized, but not clean. 3. Are they watching food temperature? I had Shellfish Bisque that was barely warm. Could lead to food poisoning. It made me wonder how carefully they were testing food temp on the line. I was about to comment that I'm sure they are watching temperature in the kitchen, but is an assumption on my part. 4. The overall attitude of the crew is, in my opinion, a direct result of managements attitude. 5. Ship has maintenance issues, lights not working, rust, equipment in some facilities, the carpets in the buffet are filthy in some areas. 6. Our cabin was the largest veranda cabin I've ever had and was very well appointed. 7. Our cabin team was excellent - I can't recommend them more.Very friendly and accommodating and kept the room in tip-top shape. 8. My friend took a wine tour based on ONE of the wineries that was listed on the tour. The Winery has a world class reputation and hasn't done public tours in years. The tour stopped outside the gate of the winery and they could shoot photos of the winery through the fence. The tour cost $300 and was a rip off. It appears that the cruise line deliberately misled people in their description of the tour. The other participants were quite angry with this apparent deception. 9. One thing I found curious as I'm writing this at 3 in the morning. One of the staff is sweeping the carpet in the buffet area with a broom and dustpan. Wouldn't a vacuum cleaner be more effective at actually getting dirt out of the carpet? 10. The port in Bilbao had free WIFI, but one couldn't get logged on. The staff at the port commented that the cruise ship was blocking the signal. Apparently, an attempt by Celebrity to keep the everyone paying the cruise ships outrageous rates for Internet time. 11. The Ocean Liner restaurant - an extra fee restaurant - was world class. The service and food were wonderful. Had dinner there twice and would recommend it to anyone. 12. The service and the food in the main dining room was very good. 13. My friend was attempting to get a cup of coffee. After picking up 3 cups from the "clean" tray and finding them dirty she mentioned it to a ships officer that happened to be close by about the situation.His comment was "just use a paper cup!" in an exasperated tone of voice. 14. This cruise was a "wine immersion" cruise. We didn't hear of any wine seminars of any kind until 2 days before the end of the cruise from a fellow passenger. There was a list of seminars that we were told they couldn't put on tables because of the sanitary problems the ship was undergoing. 15. After we saw the list of seminars we discovered that they were all rather expensive... Riedel Glass seminar $87 - promoting Riedel glasses. A wine and food seminar at $95. The least expensive one was a wine and cheese tasting for $35. Read Less
