Cruised many times on Celebrity Constellation does not meet the quality of others. Food very average.....Indian food bad..no variety ....service poor.....had to request change of dining room waiter....who said I have only. 2 hands.....onboard shopping really poor....staff said Constellation does not get the better stuff.....we had difficulty. spending our OBC Best part is the Cafe...delicious coffee......cakes....excellent service Beverage package very enjoyable... Itinerary very good. Most shows were very enjoyable.....specially the vocal ones. Jane. Curry stood out as usual. Both her performances were amazing. Her wonderful voice combined with vitality were indeed remarkable. But the other singers were excellent as well.. did not enjoy the last night comedy show nor the ships crew shows except the acrobats who were very. skilled. The magician was good. Wish they would find. new words. for the Liars Club....every cruise they have the same ones ...so boring as we know all the answers ...so not funny anymore Read Less

We went on this cruise as part of the Abraham Hicks large group. It is so wonderful to cruise with people of such high vibration. The itinerary and group workshops were wonderful! We were well taken care of by our wonderful cabin attendant, Nino. Our cabin was well located aft and midship. We are used to the newer ships with better storage and bathrooms, than the Constellation. It took some getting used to. The water is very heavily chlorinated and I am allergic. I brought my own water filter, but I could still feel my skin burning and itching from the shower. The group had a large section in the main dining room reserved just for us. The wait staff was very good, Jom, the sommelier, was outstanding. We had the classic drink package included.That said, we couldn't get a martini from the Martini Bar with the classic package. As with the other cruises we have been on, we were nickel-ed and dimed to death from the overpriced specialty dinners to the overpriced shore excursions, shuttles and transfers. We didn't have the outrageous and S L O W internet package. I couldn't complete the Celebrity survey for this cruise because we were also on the Sept 28th cruise. I went up 3 times to the ilounge to complete the survey. When the ilounge attendant was finally there, the internet was too slow for my device. They give you 30 minutes to complete the survey which is sent to your email. The attendant said I would need 3 hours to complete the survey. using their speed and my device. My biggest complaint is that they have NOTHING for back to back cruisers as far as excursions in Venice. I didn't book anything before we left home, because we were given no idea about when we would get our new sea pass. The shore excursion desk was absolutely NO HELP at all. This one man in particular was very spiteful. We needed to know the easiest way to get to San Marco (vaporetto at 15 euro roundtrip) and how to get skip the line tickets for the Doges Palace and the Basilica. This man would give me no information.Celebrity should definitely have pre planned excursions for the back to back cruisers. We would have enjoyed ourselves a lot better had we known how and where we were going and not worry about getting back to the ship on time. Getting on the Cruise Critic role call and planning private excursions is definitely the way to go. We were denied a meet and greet party because we did not have the 25 required minimum. Read Less

We choose this cruise to see India. The ship is very tied and rusting , worn carpet , wooden seats in the dinning room with joints coming apart. The crew do try very hard and give u 110% in effort. The entertainment director is getting away with being payed for sitting on his backside all day. the onboard day time entertainment was non exsistant compared to other cruise lines.There was more entertainment to be found in the casino than over the whole of the boat. The nightly shows in the theatre where great if u where in a nursing home and had not seen any entertainment for a while, really who do they think they are giving us a acrobat show which a 11 year old could perform. Every night at dinner it was a toss of a coin to see if ur drink order would arrive in 30 minutes or under or would arrive at all. The cabin steward did a fantastic job and congratulations to him cabin 9131. The food was the same day in and day out, the quality of food okay but not outstanding. When u travel aqua class and have your own designated dinning room u don't expect to have to wait up to 3/4 hour for a table.The cruise would have been excellent if I had traveled in a inside room, but having table for aquas class I was very disappointed and will never cruise with celebrity again. No one even wants to listen on board when u are offering constructive criticism. Felt very let down and ripped off. Read Less

I wanted to see the final race of the f1 season in Abu Dhabi via the Suez canal.Just a couple of things off my bucket list. First night was at a hotel in Athens,because of the bombs in Turkey,so far so good,it seems like I am being looked after.taxi outside with my name being held up,I felt a tad important,taxi driver was very polite spoke good English and dropped me at the hotel front door,very impressed and well pleased. After traveling all day a bit of food was called for,now it started to go wrong,1 waiter/barman, tables not cleared and ! choice of food ( cold ) 79 euros for a couple of cold salads. room good, but breakfast not very inspiring,hot food ,but it was cold,never mind soon be on the boat. Taxi on time,( the taxis were provided by my booking co,not Celebrity ) got to port,embarkation was a bit of a queue,but got through eventually. And I am on board,looks good,glass of champers as I board.had to wait to see the cabin (understandable) Had a cup of tea and waited to get called to cabin. Nice cabin,clean if a bit tired,but it is a bit old now, bottles of water and minibar filled. No kettle but it only became a problem when I realised I had to walk the length of the boat for a cup of tea,not good if you like a hot drink to retire with. So I thought I would get a bite to eat,not having much breakfast,so off I go to find the buffet,then the first big problem appeared and continued through the voyage,the food was all lukewarm,now I like for that if it is supposed to be hot is hot not cool,and i had to queue as well. Ok so off we go,boat quiet,stable,loads of information of things to do,it looks good.Evening meal in the restaurant was excellent,once you got used to celebrity trying to sell you posh dinners at silly money,at specialist restaurants on the way into the dining room. Good nights sleep,bed was very comfy and off to breakfast,queue queue and queue again,lukewarm food,no English bacon most of the time,On the two weeks,I had nowhere to sit a couple of times.Don't be late for meals,they shut on time and choices dwindle towards the cut off time. The entertainment consisted mainly of selling things,clothes/perfumes/watches,you name it,they made a venue for it.There was a couple of good shows in the two weeks but if you want to be entertained it's a bit weak.Mr and Mrs and the passengers singing,nice if you are in it or know someone in it,but if not it's poor.The captain gave a couple of good daytime talks as did a racing driver whose name I forget.( sorry ) But this were 1 hour talks in the morning. Watch out for the prices,at 1 of the watch sales,the prices were the same as my local high st ( in England ) so things are not the bargain they seem. Quizes in the rendezvous bar good but again no waiters I barman in a room full of people ?? really not good,and it was the same all through the trip. Suez good, one of the bucket list done then we cleared the canal,into open waters,and the announcement came all outside lights off all curtains closed in case of PIRATES,now I would not have got on the boat after reading about pirates in the press,so for 5 days,not a happy bunny,yes they put guards on,but even though,it was a downer on the trip. Cleared the waters,all good,and landed at Muscat,on a friday which is a holy day it was closed,a waste of a day. Got to Abu Dhabi got my 2 day tickets,at 4pm we landed now that is not a lot of good if you want to watch the f1 that you have bought tickets for,then you have to clear customs,now the practice has bin and gone,too late for that,but the qualifying starts at 5.Celebrity decided at the last minute to put a shuttle bus on,at the last minute only $30 .00 a head. The people in the posh cabins get to get through customs first,and first call on the shuttle bus,made me feel poor that did. But still decided to go for it,cleared passport control,ran ( as best I can at my age ) grabbed another couple going to the race ,and dived in a cab( there were dozens )The cab dropped us at the gate we needed,and charged us $21.00 for the four of us .Celibrity rip off again. Got there to see end of p3 but I still got to see p2 and qualifying. To sum up,it is just not as good as it could be,I was on a Thomson cruise earlier in the year and it was miles better,for food and entertainment.More drink stations,and kettles in the cabins. You get charged a flat rat per day for the tips at the end of the trip,it's supposed to go to the staff,but it is all or nothing you can't pay a percentage of it,if you get bad service from one member of staff.The staff were all good,especially the dining room,but in the buffet they only spoke and got helpful on the last 2 days ( prob for the tips ) Would I go on a cruise again,definitely,would I go Celebrity never again !!

I chose this cruise because of the itinerary and enjoyed all of it. I was a solo female and loved having a cabin to myself. The food was good and my cabin was kept clean and tidy. I used room service several times after a day of long tours. I enjoyed getting up early and getting coffee and watching the sun rise. The ship was quiet and beautiful in the early morning. The tours offered by Celebrity were nice but I also booked tours through another tour company and went ashore to ports that were close to the ship. Each decision I made turned out great! The variety of choices was why I booked this cruise. I got to know a lot of nice people on my tours which made me feel comfortable. I stayed on 4 extra days in Rome and toured the Vatican, took a day trip to Tuscany, did some wine tasting and did a segway tour of Rome. ALL EXCELLENT! Read Less

We were so excited for our stay on an "upper scale" cruise line! Stayed in Aquaclass. Where were our towel animals? Where was our stateroom attendants? We never set eyes on him until we were leaving! We asked for ice to chill our wine in the bucket provided in our stateroom, and was brought a small cup, so we asked for more, and never received. The one show we did watch was a not-so-funny comedy that was geared toward a very sick sense of sexuality and the gay community. I have to admit, it WAS an adult show but had a lot of room for a little added class. Left early... Our dinner at 8:30 consistently turned into not even being served until 10:00 pm which was why we had to go to the adult show in order to see any... As for sunbathing, every chair on the upper deck against the outer railing remained wired to the rail the complete trip making it impossible to adjust from sitting straight up to a more comfortable position..... Our SWEDISH massages were booked as soon as we stepped on the ship, however had to be changed to an unacceptable time while at port due to a safety drill that would be commencing with buzzers. They explained that it would be impossible for us to relax with all the loud commotion, (recently, both of my parents had passed away within 2 months of each other) we decided to pay more since relaxing was our ultimate goal so we changed it to 7:00 pm in hopes that we could relax, unwind and go to bed feeling refreshed. NOT the case! Our SWEDISH turned out to be deep tissue, to the tunes of Rap and Boom (louder than the spa music that was playing) from whatever was going on above us along with loud crashes comin from right next to us that sounded as if beer kegs were falling from a counter top. Possibly construction? Who knows , but loud enough to shake the tables several times. Anyone that rates this ship a 4 or a 5? Well, it has to have been their 1st time cruising...... Read Less

We recently took the Flower Power Cruise aboard the Celebrity Constellation for 5 days to Cozumel and Key West. The entertainment was great but many of the services aboard the ship were lacking. Though the state rooms were fine, the food quality was inconsistent in the main dining room and terrible all week at the buffet. Most noticeable was the poor service through the entire ship. We have taken several cruises and anything but demanding but the basic quality of the service staff was far below par of any other line we have taken. We don't know if this is because of the "Charter" for the theme cruise but the staff seemed untrained and certainly uninterested in what they were doing. Of course, there were some exceptions but overall they seemed poorly trained and ill equipped to deliver good customer service. They didn't seem to care if you came back or not. Overall it was a great time because of the music and theme but I would never pay for a cruise on a Celebrity ship if for a normal cruise trip. Read Less

We have cruised several cruise lines, (Royal Carribean, Carnival, Norwegian, etc.)by far, this was the worst cruise ever. The service for our cabin was horrible. Had to look for the cabin attendant several times. 1st only gave us 1 washcloth, 2nd replinished towels with a wet one, had to be told twice to replenish the toiletries! Then the toilet would not flush, although it was repaired. The food on the buffet was unseasoned, often cold, and they would run out of items! When we landed on the private island, we were served cold sandwiches (nothing grilled) with smears of tuna salad or two thin slices of turkey on huge buns. Many people took pictures of their sandwiches for complaints. The guests relations persons were rude, on the concert nights, the ushers who were to control entries into the theaters were inadequate. This was a theme cruise (The Soul Train Cruise), and the majority of the passengers were African Americans. I mentioned this, because hopefully, this was not the reason for the horrible service. Most of the ship's personnel were unfriendly, uncaring, and unhelpful. The only two highlights were our two waiters in the main dining room. I prebooked for the next Soul Train cruise, because of the entertainment. If this happens again, I will never cruise celebrity again.! Read Less

This was truly a great experience. I enjoyed every moment of this trip. The ship was clean and well appointed. The food was good and the crew was good natured and nice. I especially want to thank our stateroom porters, Budi and Roman. These gentlemen learned out names and our likes and dislikes. The room was always cleaned on a timely basis. We always had fresh towels. These gentlemen were top notch in everyway. Read Less
