Embarkation: As you may know our cruise was delayed due to extra cleaning on the ship because of the norovirus. Celebrity handled this well and we took the complimentary shuttle back into town and went to Rembrandt's house which was a neat experience as there was also an etching demonstration in his workshop. We got back to the ship around 4pm and waited until our cabin was ready.
Ship: We had not been on a Celebrity cruise before. We have sailed on the Voyager class on RCI. We definitely liked the smaller number of passengers on the Constellation. I did miss the Promenade as there was not a similar area on this ship. Initially the ship did not seem that full but by the end a lot of the lounges were full.
Cabin: We were in a C1 Cabin. The first few days were frustrating as everything had been removed from the cabins due to the virus. We felt it was like pulling teeth asking for things that should have been there: champagne, robes, Captain's Club coupons. We had a TV remote that was not working and we had to ask for our deck to be cleaned as there was debris from dry dock. The deck chairs were dirty and old. However, the carpet in the cabin looked new and the bedding was great. Eventually, things settled into a normal pattern and our stateroom attendant was excellent.
We had cabin 6143. It was very quiet and had a nice, deep balcony. I did not think Concierge Class was worth the extra money.
