A good cruise but

Review for Celebrity Constellation to Caribbean - Western

At her launch in 2002 Celebrity Constellation held 1,900 passengers. We left Tampa on March 6th with 2172 passengers. As you can imagine that means space is at a premium in elevators, poolside, in restaurants and just about everything else. To make things even a bit worse it is woefully undermanned. On our first night out Main Dining had major backups in the kitchen. No longer do we have ...

Chose this ship due to an older crowd. Appreciated not having hardly any children running around. Have only been on Norwegian breakaway 4 years ago and there buffet was amazing. I am sure that Covid and the current economy had something to do with our experience on the constellation and will have to say the food was horrible Had heard this from many passengers that I spoke with The specialty ...

The cruise was great, but there were a couple of downsides. The food, room and entertainment were excellent. However, we felt that the amenities were a cut below Royal Caribbean. We are going on a RCCL cruise in April so we will be able to see which one is best after the pandemic. I was surprised that Celebrity added a $17+ charge for lobster dinner. This was always free. The real awful ...

Columbia, Costa Rica, Panama - locations we had not been Had signed up for a 4 class barre package Friday before departure. When arrived friends went to spa and was told they were cancelled. I expected to automatically get a refund, not so. Waited 7 days and I had to go to request a refund. Poor customer service. Hubby and I had booked a couples massage. Went to spa to be told they ...

We choose cruises by the destination as we have no desire to do the same loop over and over again. Unfortunately many cruise lines rarely offer new countries or options other than the USA as homeports. As Canadians we find Celebrity do change things up and have done Asia, India, Middle East, Antarctica/ South America with them. This cruise appealed because of Panama and Colombia, new countries for ...

An old, but very nice and comfortable, ship

We chose this cruise because it departs from Tampa. The day of embarkation was hectic; fog closed the port for 8 hours, so we could not board until 6 PM. Once onboard, the ship left as quickly as possible and we were underway by 8:15 or so. We lost no port time due to late embarkation. The ship, though old, is clean and comfortable. Food upstairs by the pool is delicious, as is the food in the ...

I moved to Florida in 2021. My first January, the temps were freezing so I promised myself a cruise for January/February 2023. Celebrity was having a sale for no solo supplement and Tampa is driving distance for me, so I booked. I was excited to see Panama and revisit Costa Rica. Embarkation was extremely fast. I used the valet service to park my car. That was very quick. I walked into the ...

Good, Not Great Cruise

First, Cruise Critic does not have an explanation of what the rating bubbles mean. I am assuming that 3 means good. We enjoyed the cruise and would go on another Constellation cruise assuming the quality does not drop lower (the food quality on this cruise was lower than the food quality on summer cruise on Summit), and the price were reasonable. The service was great everywhere on the ship ...

Overall, I would say this was an underwhelming cruise. Our departure was a mess with the ship being delayed into port with fog. They bused us to a mall to wait with no communication as to when we could look to get onboard. We were walking around a mall for 8 hrs., then we got on a bus, they made us get off the bus, the buses left, then returned 90 min later. It was 8pm at night when we finally got ...

This was the 9th Celebrity cruise for me; the 2nd on the Constellation. My first experience with cruising was with Celebrity on a Mediterranean with my mother in September 2004. I was so impressed with the level of service, food quality/presentation and the entertainment that I encouraged my husband to go with me on a Eastern Caribbean with Celebrity on the Millennium in 2007. He was hooked! We ...
