We we a family of four with two teenage boys (13 and 15) , originally we chose this cruise for the itinerary and having sailed the previous year on the Reflection we wanted to visit a mixture of places we had been to before with some new ones thrown in.
Having booked and then subsequently reading the reviews of the Constellation I was concerned that is wasn't going to be a patch on the Reflection(especially as its missing the Lawn Grill)
However how wrong could we be, this ship is smaller yes but somehow it still had everything you need with the added extra of the outdoor cinema.
The service in the bars and San Marco restaurant was outstanding and the food was soo good we didn't even consider eating at any of the speciality restaurants.
The sunset bar was our favourite spot for sail away and post dinner cocktails.
We only went to a couple of shows as these are not really our thing and whilst we didn't enjoy the magician particularly, we loved the base tones the following night and the late night comedy on the final evening.
The teens also had a ball , after meeting up with others on the first night in the X Club , whenever we were on the ship they were off with their friends, only gracing us with their presence for dinner. They really get a chance to feel grown up and trusted to stay up late , but in safe surrounding with no access to alcohol.
I would not hesitate to sail on the Constellation again most definitely our best cruise holiday to date.
We had interconnecting cabins which were spacious and clean. My only disappointment was that unlike on other ships we couldn't take the partition down between the two balconies. however given that we didn't spend much time in the room this was not a big deal.
second time visiting this beach which we love. Only negative was the 10minute walk from the tender to the coach. Not a big deal for us but others struggled with this particularly as it wasn't mentioned on booking.View All 15 Elia Beach Reviews
taxi to and from Ancient olympia and a stop for shopping. 100 euros for 4 hours. this mean we got to the site before anyone else so practically had the place to ourselves. plus once we had finished could head straight back to the ship without having to wait. Excellent service from AntonisView All 216 Olympia Archeological Tour Reviews
Fishing trip , whilst it was quite expensive at 100 euros each for 4 hours, it was excellent. Sailed around the caldera and then fished off the back of the boat.View All undefined undefined Reviews
