Celebrity Constellation Cruise Review by loznort
- Sail Date: January 2019
- Destination: Asia
- Cabin Type: Concierge Class 2
The entertainment was good , as were the helpful cheerful crew, however we were disappointed with the food choice in both the main dining and buffet restaurants - not enough variation . We ended up eating similar meals several evenings. Also lacking is a ship laundry room , you are not permitted to take on travel irons and would have to use their laundry service ( pricey). The drinks packages are extortionate ( unless you want to spend all day and night in the bar drinking ). We didn't have a package but bought as we wanted , and staff in bars and restaurants are obviously instructed to push the drinks packages as we were soon tired of being pestered - similarly pestered to have photos taken , and to eat in the very expensive select restaurants.
On many other ships we have cruised , there have been destination information talks and often maps provided or the local port areas. Not with Celebrity , it was a destination talk only about their shore excursions , so if you don't want those make sure you do your homework before leaving home.
My last gripe was half a deck of the ship that housed shops selling all the usual upmarket clothing and watches + art auctions, but not essential items that may be needed on a 2 week cruise like toothpaste !
We did enjoy our holiday ( but it could have been better). Next time I'll know what to expect on a Celebrity cruise - and choose another line.
