We spent four days in Milan prior to the cruise to visit Lake Como which was beautiful. We took the train to Venice to meet up with our cruise. That was the only confusing part, getting from the train station, the to the port, the people mover, walking through a long parking lot to finally find the ship. We had a special price with Celebrity for a "guaranteed" oceanview room, and we were not disappointed. We were midship in 2097, and very pleased. I tend to get seasick if I am too high up in the ship, so this worked well for me. This was the second cruise since the Constellation had come out of dry dock for upgrades, and the ship was looking very nice. As far as the room was concerned the carpet was new, but the bathroom did not appear to have had renovations done. Most of the public areas were sparkling new though. We ate at the 6:15 Main Dining Room, and the food was exceptionally good, but the service was slow. The first night we were just getting our dessert at about 8:20 PM and the next seating was for 8:30 PM. They asked us if we could come at 6:00 PM the rest of the nights, and we agreed. It was some better, but slower than other Celebrity ships. We did hear that the ship was short about 150-200 employees. The Enertainment was good, and we never had a difficult time finding a seat to enjoy the show. There was the usual, musical fare, magical show, comedian, dancers and singers. We did participate in a Celebrity shore excursion at each of the ports and were pleased with all of the them with the exception of the Island of Capri, $144. On that one the guide pretty much left us on our own most of the time, and then suggested a certain restaurant to go to for lunch. We all went in and sat down to order lunch as the town was so crowded, and lunch without alcohol ended up costing $100 Euros. I thought that was too much for a small plate of pasta, and should not be a place that the guide is sending everyone to without a warning. In Sicily we took an excursion called Beautiful Taormina and Blue Grotto and it was wonderful. We walked throughTaomina, had a "typical Sicilian" breakfast, and then took a boat ride near a town called Giardina Naxos and saw the Blue Grotto. Well worth the day and the $159.00

We chose this cruise to see the countries along the Adriatic Sea

Cabin Review

Ocean View 8
Cabin 08 2097
The cabin had new carpet with the renovation. The bathroom had not been updated. The shower has a curtain, and very little room for toiletries. Mostly the area by the sink and two small shelves. There are four hooks on the inside of the door so that you can hang clothes while showering. The cabin attendant kept the bath clean and complete with new towels. There were two bathrobes in the closets, not fluffy ones, but usable. There is enough closet space for two but not enough hangers. I asked the attendant for more, and he brought them to me. The bed was comfortable, but not new.
