For the Itinerary, and to try a new Cruise Line after 6 Cruises with P&O over last 8 years. Constellation was lovely, it's going for a refit next year so will be even better. Food was superb as well as Service and entertainment. The ambience is more informal than P&O and better for it. The breakfast and lunch Buffets are of a high standard, both choice wise and quality, and Dinner was of a high standard - see my expanded waistline! Only Cons are they try too hard with up selling drink packages etc early on in the Cruise. But easy to resist. They could also provide information on the Ports visited with a handout on Port Details as you arrive. Towels are also whiter and fluffier on P&O. Would I go back to P&O, no not after this experience, it is definitely a class or 2 above P&O and will definitely use Celebrity again although will use Concierge Class not Aqua as this Cruise. Did not find any advantage with Aqua, dined in Blu once and much preferred San Marco Restaurant Read Less

Family of 4 in 2 ocean view balcony cabins. We have sailed on Connie before . The public areas are very clean and well maintained. The staterooms are showing their age, however very clean. She is booked for a refit later this year. This will put more life into this beautiful ship. The staff are probably the best we have sailed with. The food in MDR was a very high standard as was the buffet. We had a drinks package ( not premium ) which was very good. We had one meal in Quisine, this was very interesting, but we ate far too much food ! Ordering was an experience in its self, but that is the idea of this restaurant. The entertainment crew worked very hard. On board singers and dancers very excellent, would have liked to see more of them. Their afternoon Broadway singing show was as good as any show I have seen. Guest performers were mostly very good. 1- Singapore. Arrived 1 day early. Pre booked a taxi in uk which did not arrive. The taxi rank at the airport is very efficient and much cheaper than we paid in uk. Lovely city , we need to explore more. Just managed the hop on / off bus which was good value. Taxi driver recommended a local restaurant / cafe called chin chin- the food was delicious and cheap- we were the only non local people and they were very happy to serve us. If you just want good food would recommend- but it is like a cafe. 2 - Phuket- ship tendered. Pre booked a tour in uk with Go Phuket. Guide arrived promptly at 10 am as stated. She was lovely and we had a mini bus for 6 which gave us a very interesting tour of the area and included a beautiful meal at a very clean beach front restaurant. Would 100% recommend this company, very good value. 3- Columbo Sri Lanka- very busy town. Pre booked a tour called Tuk Tuk Safari. This was amazing and we felt like royalty - the ladies given flower garlands and a coconut to drink. Also snacks and cold beer provided. We were transported around the city to see the temples and markets. Lunch also provided in a local curry house served on a leaf. I paid £136 for 4 of us and it was a highlight of our trip. 4 Cochin- immigration was very organised and we were off the ship very early. We booked a trip via a company called carnival on a house boat. It took about 1.5 hour to get there. The bus journey was interesting as this is a very busy place. The house boat tour was 2.5 hours with lunch prepared on the boat. It was very tranquil, but maybe a little too long. However very cheap in comparison to the ships tour which arrived and left at the same time. 5- Goa- Our room attendant was from Goa. We wanted a beach day and he recommended Majorda beach. We paid for a taxi at he port. The taxi booking spot is next to the money exchange just off the ship. We paid £30 ( on card ) 45 min drive to beach and the driver waited. It was lovely with shaded sun beds. Free wifi from the bar. Lots of beach sellers who pestered until you bought from them. The clothes however were very nice and cheap. Mumbia - 2 day stay. Booked a trip in uk with Amaze tours. Our guide was brilliant. We were in a private taxi and he took us everywhere the ship trip went to for a fraction of the cost. On day 2 we did the slum tour with the same company, also had a train ride as part of the tour. This was so interesting and we all enjoyed it. Mumbia was mostly very clean, noisy, colourful and very interesting. Muscat- we just walked into the town to the Souk. There was a hop on / off bus which was expensive. The town is clean and looks stunning from the ship. Dubai - Docked at 12. We had a free transfer to the mall on the hop on /off bus from the port but decided to buy a day ticket. It was expensive for 4 . Approx £55 each. The are 3 routes and we only managed 2 in the time we had. This was a shame as Dubia is amazing. I think it would have been better to miss MUscat and have 2 days in Dubia. Will need to return. Abu Dhabi - did not see as we flew home from Dubia so just got a taxi to the airport. 1.5 hours transfer and very reasonable. Read Less

We have done many celebrity cruises and this itinerary was a good one for us. Yes the ship is a bit tired but that did not distract from our enjoyment at all. Cabin was A2 Aquaclass which was fine but we suffered from overhead noise at all times of the day and early mornings, but being under the pool deck what does one expect! Our cabin attendant Robert was fabulous. Dining in Blu was good, not very good as we’ve found before. Lobster was delicious on lobster night and our filet Mignon was great, but other meals were just ok. Desserts a huge let down. Night time entertainment was some of the best we ha d seen on Celebrity for years. There were only two nights ( Elton Jack and the first singer and dancers show)that were terrible, the rest were brilliant. Disappointed that the late night show supposedly on our final night was cancelled at the last minute. This upset our whole plan for the final night as we thought we’d go to the early Beatles show, after an early dinner, then have time to put our bags out then see the late show Allearia at 10 pm. Should have known this plan would fail as never ever seen a late show put on on our last night , EVER! Activities during the day on Celebrity are pitiful! Trivia, bingo, art auctions, sales, sales, sales, dance classes round the pool for 15-20 minutes, Officers versus passenger bag drops, golf putting, volley ball all done by the pool with blasting music, HATE IT!, and another reason to change ship preferences. Thank goodness for the solarium, where quiet reined! The selection of artists for onboard music was excellent, loved the Acoustic Duo especially but they had a range of music to suit all tastes including classical, fantastic. Captains Club host Chris was wonderful and our drink waiters in Reflections Lounge,during CC drinks 5-7, Amik and Valentine were wonderful as was Kadek at cocktail making. Service we thought was excellent throughout the ship. Did all shore excursions ourselves but got feedback from several Celebrity excursions from others, some very good, some dreadful. All ports were fabulous. We did a cooking class in Patong, Thailand with Pums cooking school and restaurant which was fabulous. Colombo Sri Lanka took a Tuk Tuk tour with Tuk Tuk Safaris, again a wonderful way to see Colombo. Then had lunch at the Gallery Cafe, Geoffrey Bawa’s restaurant in a beautiful garden setting which was delicious and cheap. India we had three private tours booked with our Cruise Critic group, in Cochin, Goa and Mumbai. We were booked with Lijo at Muziris Tours. All were fabulous and we got fabulous guides in Goa, Edgar and in Mumbai Infan. Both guides brought our tours with them to life. Muscat we had a private car tour with 2 others from CC for 4 hours. Brilliant and saw all the things we wanted to see. Khalifa was our guide and was very good. The Grand Mosque was fantastic. Dubai we didn’t get off except to go through immigration. This made getting off in Abu Dhabi a breeze. The best- the wonderful hard working staff entertainment at night and music on board Our cabin attendant Our CC waiters Lobster and filet in Blu The bad Lack of any newspapers now for anyone, told to watch BBC and CNN!!! Really- how much Australian, New Zealand Canadian, French, German news does Celebrity think we get from these stations!!! All to save paper, yet we can get three invitations the same night from Art Auctiions about their sales! There were more Brits and Aussies on this cruise than US passengers but that didn’t mean any newspapers! Overall, we had a fabulous cruise due to the itinerary and the people we met, but we find the loud music in all venues the sell, sell, sell just spoiling our overall enjoyment of Celebrity now and we will be looking at other lines that meet our needs better.
