Celebrity Constellation Cruise Review by Stilts47
- Sail Date: September 2012
- Destination: British Isles & Western Europe
- Cabin Type: Concierge Class 3
We have been on Constellation twice before and always been impressed with the ship and the crew, but this time both seemed below their usual high standard. The ship looks tired in places, but it is due a refit in April next year which I trust will perk it up a bit.
The crew were OK but not as perky as usual, I got he feeling that something was going on behind the scenes, especially when I witnessed two of the ships Officers fawning over a Senior VP who had flown into Bilbao from Miami to join the ship.
Overall we enjoyed ours elves as it was our Wedding Anniversary trip, but still got off a little disappointed which is not usually the case with Celebrity. The ports where we docked for Bordeaux and Paris are too far away, although we were there for two days so you had plenty of time.
We can't believe that they are turning Michael's Club into a Sports bar. Where are the hundreds of generally older patrons going to go to listen to performers like Perry Grant who packed them into the club every night, (despite the 'show' being the same format every evening. Standards have dropped, as we witnessed on the formal nights, dress codes not being enforced. Seems Celebrity are looking to cater to a younger clientele, so we will be off checking out P&O.
