Good But...: Celebrity Constellation Cruise Review by wally437

Destination: Western Caribbean
The food left us disappointed however. Lunch in the buffet was great with lots of choices which was also the case for breakfast. Dinner however was pretty much the same thing night after night. We ate in the buffet due to a really bad experience in the San Marcos dining room the second night which was the formal night. Our seating was 6PM. Our table had only 4 people at it and as More far as I could tell the waiter only had two table. After an hour and 5 minutes my wife had just gotten the dressing for her salad after being promised it for about 30 minutes. We looked at each other and got up and left never to return. They did call and apologize after I went to customer service and removed their gratuities. It may have been just that waiter or just that night but even the menu left us diappointed. The fine meals are one of the top reasons to cruise. We didn't get that experience.
One of the things we liked better on Carnival was the smoking locations. On Carnival my wife could sit at the bar near the Casino and we could listen to the wonderful band that played nightly. Celebrity did have a location where you could smoke outside one of the clubs but there were no chairs or anything beyond an ashtray. While I recognize many prefer not to be around smokers the failure to provide chairs for those who make that choice is wrong. Less
Cabin review: 052164 Ocean View 5
Great location near the elevators. It is low (we joked about being in steerage on the Titanic) so if you are starboard side to the pier you need to keep your curtains pulled!Read All Ocean View 5 (05) Reviews >>
