Trip Details
  • Sail Date: Jul 2017
  • Destination: the Western Mediterranean
  • Cabin Type: Inside Stateroom 9

We chose this cruise for the timing and destinations. We were a group of 16 people aged 8 to 83.

With us we had 2 children with Celiac (aged 12).

We had inside rooms and a balcony room all in front on the 9th floor.

The staff was amazing, destinations were great all our dining was in the main dining room, Pool Grill, Oceanview Bar and the OceanView Cafe.

I will start with the good, the staff is friendly, helpful and efficient, you can see that they enjoy what they do and they do their best to make your stay enjoyable, this applies to everyone starting at the room steward, the waiters, entertainment staff etc...

Food was tasty and variety was very good, everyone in our group agreed that the regular food server was rated from good to excellent.

Even though she is starting to show her age the Constellation is a very impressive ship.

The ports of call were great, the destinations were fabulous.

The OK, on board entertainment was good but activities were a bit on the weak side for the younger cruisers in our group.

Although expensive the internet (onboard wifi) worked well.

The so-so, Built in 2001 the constellation is starting to show her age in certain areas, some flooring around the pool had cracks, bed skirts were worn out, shower curtain rings had rust spots decor is a bit aged. We also had a short technical difficulty during which (about 30-45 minutes) none of the toilets in our area flushed.

The not so good, even though we verified before we booked that they can cater to people (children) with celiac, and we confirmed during booking and reconfirmed by sending a special dietary form ahead of time and again by phone days before the cruise, the first few days breakfast and lunch were challenging (main dining room was organized). It took a conversation with the F & B manager and the head chef (who were very understanding and very nice) to get things going and unfortunately we were halfway through the cruise when we got to meet them. Without going too much into details we advise anyone with special dietary needs to go to guest services the first day just to make sure they are aware of your needs and expectations.

Extras are on the expensive side of the scale.

Overall compared to the offering in terms of value for money we found it to be OK as long as you don't go for the extras.
