I choose this cruise mainly for the Itinerary but also because I have sailed with Celebrity twice in the past albeit on bigger and newer ships. There have been mixed reviews about 'Connie' as it is affectionately known stating that it is ... Read more

When we booked two years prior we were told that Celebrity were top notch and at the very top of the various cruise operators. We therefore had high hopes of a truly memorable cruise as we packed our formal wear and shoes to match. Imagine ... Read more

This was our second cruise with Celebrity. Our group comprised my husband and I and our 21 year old son and 19 year old daughter. The itinerary was marvellous, we loved all the ports. "Connie" was great but not quite as good as ... Read more

Cruising has definitely changed over the last 20-30 years and not for the better. Activities on board are virtually non existent. Everything is geared toward getting you pay extra; whether it's overpriced drinks, gambling or insanely ... Read more

I've cruised Norwegian, Disney, Royal Caribbean and Princess and never felt so strongly that a cruise company was trying to make me pay extra for what should have been part of the price. Charging for shuttles to Dubrovnik and Ravenna, for ... Read more

We enjoyed this cruise on the Connie tremendously. We were in an Aqua class cabin and ate in Blu. Eating in Blu was like being in a specialty restaurant every night. It was gourmet and healthy food in an intimate setting. We even ate ... Read more

It was with misgivings we boarded this ship having been on the Millenium at the same age 2 years ago. However we were pleasantly surprised - yes, the ship does need a refit or a very major refurbishment but it was clean . (The Millenium ... Read more

The itinerary looked very interesting. The ship's tours are ridiculously expansive and the tour guides are not the best. Local tours are great from all points of view. However you should spend some time on internet to find them. Food in ... Read more

Day 1 Venice, Italy Flights were OK despite there being a stopover and connection at Schipol (Barrhead Travel decided to lie about this when we booked as they told us the flight was direct). Coach for the transfer was about 10 mins walk ... Read more

Just returned from the Adriatic Sea cruise to Venice, Croatia, Rome, Livorno all in Italy, then Toulon, France and Barcelona. We were in Aqua Level, 11th floor and well worth the price of going Aqua. We took the water bus to Burano ... Read more

we chose this cruise for our family of 7 because we had been on reflection in Mediterranean two years earlier and loved if much more than r.c. or Norwegian or Holland, all of which we had tried before. This ship's reviews were not as ... Read more
