Celebrity Constellation Cruise Review by vertdure
- Sail Date: November 2012
- Destination: Transatlantic
- Cabin Type: Inside Stateroom 12
What a difference a year makes! Last Year's Transatlantic was on RCCL Navigator not so good.
This year Constellation was a 9 out of 10 Hard to believe that they are part of the same RCCL family.
The entire trip will have created fond memories.
In Southampton we stayed at the Hotel Mercure very reasonable and only a 10 minute walk to the Pier.
Boarding at 11:00 AM was slow so we went shopping at the excellent West Quay Mall came back at 2 PM boarding took only 10 minutes.
Superlatives for all the restaurants, Gym was above average, I just wish that the dry sauna was turned on before 7AM when the gym was full. The ship personnel were always friendly.
The Entertainers as well as Sue the cruise director were entirely appropriate for the demographics of this sailing. Every evening was enjoyable. The dress suggestions for Formal/Dress-up Dinners were well upheld even providing a Jacket for the men who didn't have one.
We so appreciated the restraint in using the ship's Public address system to a minimum they assume appropriately that guests will & can read the daily activities newsletter.
Diane Hedricks Zumba classes twice a day were SO appreciated by my Wife as well as the other 90 guests.
Finally a word to the Stuffy/Elite 5% of our fellow passengers who felt that this was their exclusive private cruise,they would be happier chartering their own Boat next time, Especially the lady who insisted on turning down the music since it disturbed her ability to read in silence during the Zumba class in the Reflections lounge.
Overall it must be obvious by this review that Celebrity Constellation is very high on our favorite Cruise ships list.
