My now husband and I selected this cruise by luck. We were actually booked on a Norwegian cruise but when Norwegian decided to change every port on the itinerary, we canceled it and found this one. Since we were celebrating our ... Read more

This was a wonderful vacation for us, one of the best, and it's difficult to separate the boat from the ports we visited. This was our first time to this part of the world and now we can scratch Pompeii, the Parthenon, and the Greek isles ... Read more

Pros: - Immaculately clean ship - only ~5 kids on the entire ship (pro for a kid-free vacation). This is not a kid-friendly cruise per say - stick to royal caribbean or carnival for kid activities - premium drink package really ... Read more

We have been on 22 cruises over the past 25 years, 7 of them on Celebrity, and have found their quality to price ratio to be among the best. However, we have noticed a noticeable slippage in value when you consider that more and more of ... Read more

We chose this cruise because we wanted to get a taste of Spain and Celebrity fulfilled our appetite. Every port was an exciting experience, however, Barcelona was a bit of a disappointment. When we travel we seek out the culture of the ... Read more

Overall I had a fantastic time; the ship is beautiful, food is very tasty, entertainment is good, and many staff are friendly. There is very good shopping in Cartagena, Spain and I found great deals at the Flower Market in Nice, France. ... Read more

We chose this cruise primarily for the itinerary and were not disappointed. Maybe we found Cartagena a little light in entertainment, but after visiting so many places in two weeks we were not so excited to see another town. The service ... Read more

We chose this Cruise on recommendation from a friend, as we'd never been on a cruise before we asked around various friends who had cruised already, and after weighing up what we thought would be the best company for us we settled for ... Read more

We chose this cruise because of the itinerary. We have cruised many times and are always looking for something new to see. Sadly, what was new was the lack of service and the lack of required knowledge demonstrated by the Shore Excursions ... Read more

We chose this particular cruise due to the itinerary. I knew the Constellation would be undergoing a refurbishment immediately following this cruise and it does need a facelift. We were on Deck 8 in cabin 8072. This was my second ... Read more

The embarkation went without any issues. The ship itself was clean and tidy, well equipped with good bars and restaurants although a refurb in certain areas would benefit the ship. The food selection was good and food quality excellent and ... Read more

The crew could not have done more. I cruise a lot and have rarely seen a crew so nice and accommodating. The boat is old but kept in excellent condition and clean. I do not suggest you stay on the second floor. We had room 2000. ... Read more

We have traveled on Celebrity before and despite some bad experiences gave them another try as the trip looked really good. The ports were great, especially as we did not do any of the ship's excursion tours which we did with others via ... Read more
