This was our second cruise on a Millennium class vessel although the Constellation has been Solticised, so the layout and "feel” of the ship differed somewhat to our initial experience on the Infinity some four years ago. We nevertheless thoroughly enjoyed the cruises. We had visited most of western Turkey as well as Athens previously but this was our first experience of the Greek Isles which did not disappoint. But our overriding impression of the cruise was that of the outstanding service we received invariably from the ship’s staff at all levels and at all times.
It is a truism that an organisation’s leadership largely dictates it’s ensuing culture and quite obviously the tone of this cruise was set firmly by the Master of the vessel Captain Tasos Kafetzis who we understand is the youngest ever Captain of a Celebrity vessel. He clearly leads by example, is obviously well liked and respected by the crew and ensures that his Officers are visible and approachable at all times, creating an almost family feel to the cruising experience.
Standard balcony - nothing special but we knew what to expect. Clean and adequately provisioned. well manintaine by attentive stateroom attendants.
