  3. Celebrity Constellation
Constellation is an older ship and needs it's planned upgrade next year. having said that it is well maintained,very clean and has a good happy crew The layout does need re modeling but the larger lounges and cafe are good points over Solstice class ships but the lack of alternative dining options and under used areas are worse. We were not happy at all with luggage arrangements at Venice Airport. All of us on Celebrity arranged flights had to lug luggage out to coaches ,load it and then unload it at the cruise terminal before it was taken off us.... Cost cutting ?? Dining in the MDR was well organised and overall very good which is more than can be said for the Tuscan Grill where service was poor and the food average The buffet had its problems,too much luke warm food left standing "under the lights" and a layout that caused you to spend too much time collecting your food. i understand the layout is to be changed,it needs to be. Our balcony stateroom was "cosy" being slightly smaller that we were used to but perfectly OK Entertainment was mixed as it always is some very good ,some not so good and others not worth bothering with In short we enjoyed the cruise,it could have been better, and in my view Celebrity need to be careful with the cost cutting. Currently there is a point of difference. it does not need to be eroded.

Some niggles but overall quite good
