We departed on May 5th from Ft. Lauderdale on the Celebrity Constellation. We gathered on the top deck waving to all and holding a sign that read "Cruise Critic Goes Dutch" since we were headed to Amsterdam. We had a great group of people who had been in touch on Cruise Critic for almost a year and now finally were meeting and enjoying each other in person.
The Ship is beautiful and in terrific shape. Except for Aqua Class which will be installed within the next six months, the refurbishing and solticizing of the ship made it look terrific.
We were in Concierge Class and although there is a little larger space, with a few more amenities, don't really think it was worth the extra money. Fresh flowers, champagne and fruit upon arrival and canapes each afternoon. Next time a balcony cabin without the frills would be fine.
