Celebrity Constellation Cruise Review by JMaclauchlan
- Sail Date: December 2012
- Destination: Western Caribbean
- Cabin Type: Ocean View 4
Overall the service seemed to be lacking and going through the motions and the food in the MDR and buffet was just as lacking and the buffet itself seemed poorly organized in that you had to go through the whole line of stations just to get what you wanted and not seem like you were cutting in line, we were even served cold burgers at the poolside grill,and no one seemed to care. And like another poster on the What's wrong the Connie, our stateroom's bedding looked worn and was even torn in a few places. Not sure about this as this is my first cruise on Celebrity but was put off by, the highly repetitive, sales tables.
My last complaint is more about the Constellation herself, our cabin was 2185 which is right by the entrance to the crew's section and right under the MDR's galley so by the time we were retiring after our late seating in the MDR we were treated to the sounds of washing dishes etc. We also had a lovely smell coming from the black water check valve compartment across from our stateroom's door ( black water is sewer lines btw).
This was DW second cruise (her first was our honeymoon cruise aboard Carnival Fascination ) and she couldn't believe how much better our experience was with Carnival seeing how Celebrity is supposed to be more upscale.
I highly doubt we will cruise with Celebrity again.
