Celebrity Constellation Cruise Review by mace1942

Trip Details
  • Sail Date: Oct 2017
  • Destination: the Western Mediterranean

I was forced to choose this cruise because Celebrity relocated Equinox to the Caribbean after I had booked a Greek Island Cruise on her, so in fairness this cruise was 'second choice'.

I had cruised on Constellation many years ago before the launching of the Solstice Class ships which I have cruised on very happily for some years.

Constellaion, is not in the same league as the Solstice class ships. Despite a recent visit to the dry dock she looks dated and lacks charisma.'Over painting ' may have looked good at first but rust is already breaking through. The sun beds had not been replaced just frame painted which was scratched and scuffed after a short time.Upholstery had been replaced in some ares and this brightened the interior a little.Loungers with cushions brightened and gave comfort on the sun deck, but all other loungers were without pads.

Concierge Cabin was OK and well serviced but no Sparkling wine or flowers this trip.

Restaurants:¨Ocean view, Lay out confusing at first food mediocre and often cool

Main Restaurant, food of a good standard but noisey

Tuscan excellent in every respect

The biggest disappointment was the removal of The Murano to be replaced by Sushi on 5, what a let down! The loss of this restaurant would definitely stop me booking Constellation again,

Generally Officers were seen and polite, on social occasions friendly. Many staff were cheerful and accommodating but some,appeared to lack interest. There was a general lack of atmosphere in most of the bars except the Martini Bar which as always generated a good atmosphere.

Finally I enjoyed the cruise partly down to the good weather and The Tuscan Grill which served superior food. Would I book again, unlikely on Constellation
