  3. Celebrity Constellation
My daughter and are embarked on our very first cruise this spring on the Celebrity Constellation. We travelled from Nova Scotia Canada all the way to Venice, Italy, where we met our cruise ship. We were in Venice for a good part of 2 days; Dubrovnik, Croatia for 2 days; Kotor, Montenegro; Corfu Greece; Katakolon, Greece; Valletta, Malta and ended our cruise in Rome, Italy. We were in a balcony cabin 7018 which had "partial obstructions". These obstructions were simply the white bracing "posts" on each side - they hardly obstructed our view at all. We were very pleased with our cabin. We loved the Celebrity Constellation. Everyone on board was so very friendly and very quick to please. Captain Tasos had the most hilarious sense of humour. We enjoyed the "banter" back and forth with the cruise director, Mark, during the cruise. The entertainment directors, Shawna and Andreas were quite hilarious as well. We LOVED the Cafe el Bacio coffee shop; the relaxed atmosphere, great staff (Metin and Viktor) and live music at the Rendevouz lounge; the "games", etc hosted by the entertainment team; relaxing on the top pool deck; the Live Production Shows; the wonderful dishes to choose from every evening at dinner; great food at the breakfast buffet; Bistro on Five - banana nutella and mediterranean crepes were delicious! Celebrity did an excellent job at trying to keep everyone sanitized with hand sanitizer stations and "servers" to make sure most people sanitized before going into the eating areas and getting onboard the ship. The ice cold towels and drinks were very appreciated when arriving back on the ship each day after the very "hot" temperatures we experienced during our days in ports. We had the Classic Drink Package, and we had no troubles ordering most anything we wanted. Besides alcohol, it included fresh squeezed juices, basic bottled water, canned pop/soda, the fancy coffees at Cafe el Bacio and more. It was great value! The Live Production shows at the theater were just amazing! We loved the onboard cast of professional musician, dancers and aerialists. Absolutely excellent! We have very few negative comments - My main concern is all the paper that is wasted daily onboard. Every day in every cabin and on every menu, there are thousands of pages of paper printed and wasted. I realize they need to get out their "information", but in this day and age, I firmly believe it doesn't need to be by copying and printing on paper. How about they make the internet prices a lot more reasonable and get out the info that way? Or include the schedules on the TV each day like they have the seapass acct showing? -We would have liked to have seen the early dinner seating a bit later.It was very rushed most days to get ready and be at dinner by 6:15. 6:30-7 would have been quite a bit less rushed. -We liked relaxing in the Rendevouz lounge area after dinner and before the shows most evenings. We found they would have something there; then the entertainment would move up to Reflections lounge or somewhere else....and so on.... It would have been nice if they had kept something going on at each venue, so the people that stayed in one place for a while would continuously have something to watch or listen to. Like I said, we have very few complaints or concerns - we loved our trip on the Celebrity Constellation and will most likely watch for another cruise on her again in the future - Well done, Celebrity!

Awesome first cruise experience!

Cabin Review

Deluxe Ocean View with Balcony 2C
Cabin 2C 7018
7018 was listed as having "obstructed views". The only obstruction was the white framing "posts" on each side. There was very little of our view obstructed. 7018 was a very quiet cabin - we had no issues with anything at all.
