We chose this cruise because of the exciting ports we visited. We visited Israel and it was an amazing place. We stayed over night in Jerusalem and felt quite safe. The place is so full of history and is so powerful, just loved it.
We thought the crew on Celebrity Constellation were great and very helpful especially a waiter in the buffet, his name was Angel and he was just loved by everyone. He used to sing Angel of the morning as he got you your coffee or tea, just a delight.
We found the food in the dining room to be on the cold side and we went to The Ocean Liner speciality restaurant as we do every time we cruise with Celebrity but were so disappointed with the food and service this time.
The Tuscan Grill was amazing.
We only did our excursions that we arranged through the site on Cruise Critic with other members.
We met some awesome people from all over the world.
The days at sea could of had more games ect but all they seemed to have was Art Auctions and sales.
The TV system needs upgrading and they played the same movie over and over for 24 hrs then changed it. We like to veg out in the afternoons when we have a day at sea to recoup after the port intensive cruise and on all our other cruise they had about 4 movies playing which was nice. There were all other channels on the satellite but mostly Bloomberg or news channels. We had a balcony cabin 6078 and then concierge 8076 the last cabin was slightly bigger not by much though.
But we enjoyed our cruise very much.
the cabin was slightly larger than a balcony cabin but it was a bit tired and needs some TLC.
The pillows were horrible. We tried every different kind of pillow they had so I ended up sleeping on the cushion off the lounge.
Everyone we spoke to complained about the pillows. So bring your own.
Great city, we got lost a few times in the little streets but it was a delight.
We love Turkey. We have been before and done the ruins ect so we just stayed around the port and did a little shopping.
We love Rhodes, we have been 3 times before. This time we took a private tour to Lindos, a little village on the other side of the island and that was really nice.
We have been here before and it is our least favourite port.
We took a private tour and loved it.
Just loved this place again we took a private tour for 2 days and staying overnight in Jerusalem itself. We stayed at the ARTHUR HOTEL, it was a fabulous little hotel. We felt very safe and we all hope to visit it again in the future
An interesting little place, we only had a few hours and we didn't take a tour perhaps we should of had a guide to explain the history ect.
