  3. Celebrity Constellation
Recently returned from a 10 night cruise from Rome to Barcelona in June on the Constellation. We have been on this ship once before to India and Asia about 2 years ago and really enjoyed it, unfortunately this time although we enjoyed the ports of call and to be fair thought the aqua class dining was still good and the staff overall worked hard to please the rest of the experience though was very average. The entertainment on board overall was hit and miss, the buffet restaurant was chaotic it was quantity over quality. The ship is need of a refurbishment which we understand is happening soon, the public areas were well worn and shabby. But the biggest disappointment was our cabin, we were in an aqua A1 which had a fab balcony overlooking the rear of the ship but numerous issues including poor water pressure, some evenings the shower would not function, broken drawers, thread bare sofa. Also anyone that books a cabin in this area needs to be aware it is just under the big cinema screen which plays a movie four times a day with booming sound, it was seriously annoying if you want a bit of piece & quiet, one evening it was going until midnight. We have travelled with Celebrity numerous times previously but feel the quality of previous trips has declined and they are not a 5 star operation in any way now unfortunately.

Good in parts but average in others

Cabin Review

Aqua Class Balcony
Cabin A1 1140
As mentioned this cabin is at the rear of the ship with a big balcony and at first glance it looks good however be aware of what can be constant noise from the cinema screen directly above, it is in need of refufurbishment and we had issues with a lack of water to our shower that apparently other cabins in this area have also.
We would not book this cabin again due to the location of the cinema.
