Sold as a premium cruise Celebrity Constellation fails miserably. Carnival, Princess, Norwegian and P&O leave them for dead. You are nickel and dimed every inch of the way with overpriced shore excursions and transfers e.g. They charged Euro 22 for a Venice city transfer by boat and the Vaporetto made the identical trip for Euro 15. The"helpful" staff did not mention the availability of the Vaporetto. Drinks are expensive and get truly ridiculous when an automatic 18% gratuity is applied. Meals are unexciting. The wait staff in the restaurants are excellent but with few exceptions drink waiters are surly. The evening shows are of good quality but there is minimal incidental entertainment before and after the shows, unless you like a DJ or the same band singing the same songs every night. If I ever hear green green grass of home again!!!!!!!
The ship is tired and overpriced. We will certainly not sail with them again.
Clean comfortable and well serviced
