Having travelled twice before on sister ship Infinity, (and other Celebrity ships) we expected a lot from Constellation and on the whole she didn't disappoint. Boarding at Venice was a breeze, probably the quickest boarding we have ever experienced. The sail out of Venice is amazing and a definite highlight that we had wanted to do for years.we understand that the Venice authorities will not be allowing this for large ships for much longer through the Grand Canal but it is the best sail away ever!
We had an inclusive package which was great but even though we were not directly paying for drinks we found the bar staff still very happy to serve and generous with the measures. The friendliness of the crew was first class and as good as any we have experienced and better than on other lines which will remain nameless but have "sovereign " connections.
Entertainment was generally good although we missed having a jazz trio in one of the bars. The theatre shows were well performed and produced but the new late night theatre show Elerya was awful. It tried to be "adult" but missed the mark but a long way, it was just rude. We hope this the shape of things to come on Celebrity.
