Celebrity Constellation Cruise Review by Irene W
- Sail Date: December 2017
- Destination: Asia
- Cabin Type: Deluxe Ocean View with Balcony 2C
The ship looked great on the outside but inside no WOW FACTOR to greet us nothing like the brochure.
It looked tired and dated.
The cabins were kept immaculate and the crew worked hard to keep the ship clean clean. The crew were very friendly and cheerful
The elevators one of the best bits
It was rated as 5* but a 3* was about its limit.
Not really a Christmas cruise very low key not what was expected.
Poor overall Christmas Decorations one Gingerbread Village in reception and in general dining and a few Christmas Trees and lights
The food was adequate but not exceptional in the Ocean View Dining room.
Selected Dining was better. The waiters worked very hard.
We didn't use the specialty restaurants
We had the drinks package and this worked well also the on board spending was ok but the shops were expensive as were the trips.
We did our on thing at the various ports.
India was very hot and a great experience the train ride was awesome though for this outing we went on paid trip. It was one of the cheapest!
It was difficult to find a quiet spot but we did.
The roof top for evening cinema under the stairs had too many steps to reach it as I a stiff back.
Plenty of towels available loungers could be a problem.
The "solarium" salt pool was lovely.
Many passengers got nasty coughs due to the air conditioning I believe including my husband.
The theatre put on some good shows and the resident band was excellent the Cruise Director tend to be annoying but worked hard .
Ashlie Amber the Whitney Huston act was Fantastic.
We made the most of the holiday BUT the visa procedure was a nightmare at the 3 Indian ports of call.Indian officials not at all friendly.
Our flight with Emirates home was delayed 5hours due to engine trouble as taxied and to cap it all our luggage was left in Dubai when we had a new plane.
We did get a lovely suntan

We went on rail trip but at off peak! A crazy experience. Also went to Ghandi house. This was very crowded as so many visitors. The Dhobi laundries just lines of washing .
