Celebrity Constellation Cruise Review by joshsc
- Sail Date: January 2015
- Destination: Eastern Caribbean
- Cabin Type: Ocean View 7
Public Rooms - The ship was clean and the decor was pleasing. There was no garish colors from the 80's I'm so used to. Plenty of seating in the lounges. The banisters on deck and artwork outside need attention.
Cabin - 2119 outside cabin with very large porthole. Roomy (for a cruise ship) cabin with plenty of storage space and closet. Bathroom standard but unlike the bubble showers on Royal, this shower was large enough to actually move around and wash areas not so easy to get to in the bubble shower stalls. Love that this line provides individual soaps and shampoos and lotions. Nice touch. Always had clean towels and a tidy room with a full ice bucket.
Entertainment - Eh! what can I say. It was ok. This ship caters to an older crowd for most stuff. What I liked: stringed trio in the lounge, Guest singer , and comedian.
What I didn't like: I've never been on a cruise that didn't utilize the top deck area at night. NOTHING! Pools and hot tubs actually close at 10pm. No midnight buffet, no evening dances on deck; it was just useless space. The daytime use wasn't a ton better- one line dance class (not sure when they were supposed to use those new skills), a female band (who were very good) that played for about an hour one day. A "dj" that played for about an hour... Really it was sad. If there's anything this ship needs to work on is entertainment. But then it really made me relax (which is what I needed). The main show was just ok (but good singers and dancers) as it looked more like a high school production. And REALLY unfortunate was the "ventriloquist" from UK's Got Talent - I'm not going to be mean but people walked out.
Value for Money - This was a great value since we got a good last minute deal. I'd do it again.
Service - As stated before, simply amazing from the captain down.
