This was my 15th Transatlantic cruise on Celebrity and I traveled solo. The start to this cruise was much different than any other cruise. On Nov 3 ,I departed on my flight to Rome and upon arrival at Fiumicino, I took the train to Civitavecchia (Civi). All went well until I received a text from Celebrity informing me that the Constellation was in Naples due to bad weather in Civi. The text said that we would be bused to Naples. Unfortunately the text did not give times of departure of departure point. Celebrity also sent emails to passengers. The emails went straight to spam so if you had a tablet or smart phone you never got the email. there were of course many confused passengers in Civi that evening. My stateroom was wonderful, up front with large porthole and extra large. The ship which I had sailed on several times is still in first class condition. Plenty of deck chairs and never a wait for anything. The crew is super friendly and everywhere to be seen. Dining in the MDR is OK, nothing more. Service is either very good or very slow. The menu shows a few changes at dinner such as pork and beans and mac and cheese added in. , Much of the meat is tough. I had seen much of the entertainment on previous cruises. Brooks Aehron, the pianist, was on board again; he is just super good and enjoyed by virtually all the passengers. The show put on by the passengers was top-notch. Disembarkation was a breeze, probably less than 20 minutes. All in all, a good cruise despite the very rocky start. I can only hope that someone in the Miami HQ learns from this experience.   Read Less

The Constellation is a first class ship and I have been on many. It is not too big and is still part of the elegance of cruising. No bowling allies, rock walls, or tractor pulls. Great shows, beautiful decor. I usually avoid the Buffet on all ships except for a breakfast or a snack but actually found it to be fabulous with an amazing selection and style of foods. Just look the the Yellow Pages under restaurants and they have covered all the types in the Buffet. For a quiet evening wait till every-one's in the dining rooms and then go to the back of the buffet at the grill where the grilled salmon is No.One with mixed grilled peppers and a carafe of wine for $10.00 and you not only have the best meal you have peace and quiet because nobody is there and you hear soft music you normally wouldn't notice, the lights are low and its wonderful. Going against the flow is always a good way to enjoy a cruise. I most split my dining between the two specialty restaurants...The Ocean Liner and the Tuscan Grill. $30. a pop but a discount if you buy in 3's. The fillet steak is like a tender soft ball ripped out of a cow...crab cakes amazing...flambe lobster, fabulous cheese selection and flambe strawberries. Too wonderful and please dress....its classy...no farm cloths. The main dinning room was very elegant but I found it so rushed...like a cafeteria...I only tried it twice and was too wound up when I left. I like to relax over my food then go to the theatre. The wine package was a pain in the butt...won't do that again. I kept ending up with wine that wasn't on my package and having to pay huge amounts...I prepaid 5 bottles and think I only used 4 so there goes any tiny saving. The $10. carafe was a better deal. The various stops were wonderful but be very careful in Lisbon as many of us were openly attacked and robbed by pick-pockets...I literally had to fight with three aggressive young woman to hang onto my money. Lisbon should put a stop to them or the ships to by-pass Lisbon. This ship is a bit smaller but so much better and as it was a repositioning cruise I had an outside cabin with a patio, flat screen TV with actual TV programing which I've never had before. I wish there was a list you could be on for last minute single offerings for seniors who could go in a few days notice. Thank you constellation. Read Less
