We have done 2 Westbound Crossings and numerous other Celebrity cruises and this was certainly one of the best. The entertainment was the best we have experienced on any cruise ship, ever. The officers and crew were accessible and very friendly. The Captain has cultivated a culture of friendliness and it shows. Stateroom attendants were excellent and our room was always clean. Waiter Metin and wine steward Feyzullah were absolutely outstanding. We have done a crossing on the Reflection, which is newer and larger, but we have to say that we actually prefer the Constellation. We can't think of anything they could have done better on this cruise.
We always have a good experience at check-in in Ft Lauderdale, but what we hate more than anything is the process of clearing customs on returning. There are always extremely long, slow moving lines even if you leave the ship at your assigned time and it is painful and aggravating. This happens every single time we arrive at the Port.
