14 Days of Leisure

Sail Date: January 2010
Destination: Panama Canal & Central America
Embarkation: Miami
Celebrity Constellation Jan 2010

The wife and I have just completed a 14-day cruise from Miami to San Diego via the canal on the Celebrity Constellation. Our Daughter and Son-In- Law joined us. We had a great cruise with little problems. We would rate the overall experience a 4.5 on a scale of 1 to 5. The little cut on the rating comes from the embarking and debarking process. We think that Celebrity is taking more of a bad hit than they should. We feel some of the problem lay with non- USA citizens not showing up as requested for the debarkation process and the U.S. Immigration Dept. process.

We found the food in the main dining room very good with a wide selection. Some of the daily appetizers left a little bit to be desired but the options from the everyday menu side more than made up for this concern. Our table staff did an excellent job and met every need and request,

Our room Stewart and his assistant did a very good job. They made up the room quickly More and responded to any request or needs we had. This is our second cruise with this Stewart and we have been pleased both times.

We attended several lectures and enjoyed them. Most of our entertainment came at Michael's club with Perry Grant. This was our second cruise with Perry on board and we enjoyed him just as much this time. In the theater we found the Celebrity Orchestra to be somewhat loud. Sometimes drowning out the main act.

Our shore tours we booked through Celebrity were pretty good. The boat tour to see Acapulco bay and the cliff divers was excellent. The Lands End tour was mostly enjoyable but it fell off at the end of the tour when we were brought to a hotel, wrong hotel than what was listed, for some refreshment and to sit around getting ready to leave for the ship. The 2nd half of the tour was kind of a waste. We did a private tour with other Cruise Club members by Okey Dokey tours in Costa Rica. Mistake, long time going places to not see much. The beach they took us to was filthy and the AC in the van did not work well. We found the ship in excellent condition. There are signs around showing that the ship has been in service 7 or 8 years but this had no effect on the cruise enjoyment.

The Constellation is scheduled for refurbishment if April. We spent a day in San Diego's Old Town area and enjoyed it greatly. We also got out just before the rains came. We would highly recommend this cruise to others. Less

Cabin review: 2C7045 Deluxe Ocean View with Balcony 2C

We had a Veranda cabin which we found very good. A Little bit larger cabin and veranda would have been nice. Some of the furnishings showed signs of 7 or 8 years of use. Elevator location was convenient.
