We have cruised a number of times before with Celebrity but this was our first cruise on the Constellation. Although it is an older ship it seemed in decent condition. The only problem we had was a non flushing toilet which was soon ... Read more

We chose this cruise because I wanted to go to India and my husband did not. With this cruise I got to see some of India, but he got to eat and sleep on the ship. Many of the ports were very similar with nothing outstanding to see. ... Read more

We had an aqua class cabin, which allows us to eat at Blu restaurant. We loved it. Much more quiet than the main dining room. Service is slower than MDR which allows us to drink our wine slowly and enjoy a good cup of herbal tea. We never ... Read more

We chose this cruise 2 years ago for the different port it was offering. We had never been to India, or Sri Lanka so now was the time. The ports were underwhelming and though we knew that India would be dirty we were surprised at the ... Read more

Chose this cruise because I was very keen to visit that part of the world. We stayed in Singapore prior to the cruise and were very happy with the Orchard Hotel that had been booked for us. It was in a very central position and ... Read more

We chose this cruise for some heat and winter sun - so we weren't disappointed in that respect. Hadn't been before so the itinerary was to look forward to. The embarkation process from Dubai to the ship was slow and not very well ... Read more

This was our 3rd cruise on the Constellation and it reinforced our liking for medium sized cruise ships. However, the Connie is in desperate need of some major TLC. She is most definitely showing signs of her age, with broken / damaged ... Read more

The constellation was an old ship that showed her age. The entertainment was close to nothing and when the house band cannot connect or pick up on what the passengers are wanting that is a serious problem. The bands and music type were ... Read more
