Celebrity Constellation Cruise Review by brummiekev

Trip Details
  • Sail Date: Jul 2015
  • Destination: the Eastern Mediterranean
  • Cabin Type: Ocean View 6

Just got home. I have to admit, I was not too impressed with the cruise. I think we have been spoiled by going on celebrity eclipse and RCI independence of the seas.

The major gripe would be entertainment, being on the bigger ships, there was always, something to do. Skating, cinema, crazy golf, golf simulator, flow rider, several quizzes a day and other events such as napkin folding, jewellery making, water melon carving etc.

If you didn't sunbathe or use the pool, you had two quizzes at set times.

It's a poor show when the most entertaining person on the ship is the captain. He in fact was brilliant, such a funny man. For me in future it's bigger (newer) ships and sail from UK

Didn't get our luggage until after we came back from dinner. Embarkation was very smooth going on to the ship, but we had to walk a fair distance in blistering heat from the airport to bus park, not good for people with walking problems who had been traveling for almost 8 hours.

No problems with ports. Very smooth and well organized.

Disembarkation was also very smooth, well planned with a time to leave.

The main reason we didn't enjoy it was that we have been spoiled by going on bigger ships first, therefore our expectations have been raised.

Very informative. But got a bit repetitive after about an hour and half.

Didn't get very close to attractions. Dropped off at recommended shop for half hour. Very expensive.

Bosphorus Cruise

Cruise was disappointing, because we were on the wrong side of the boat. Go on port side, that's where you see everything. Was lucky enough to see two pods of Dolphins. Trip to grand bazaar was superb only hour and a half, could have spent half a day in there. That alone is worthy of 5*

Ephesus

Didn't stop at the historical places, just pointed out from coach. Half hour spent at a little cafe/shop and another half hour at a carpet salesroom
