Celebrity Constellation ReviewsView Cruise Deals
As first time cruisers we were concerned as to how it would all work. We needn’t have been worried as Iglu were fantastic at organising everything for us. Special thanks goes to Lynn in the office who guided us through the maze of first time cruising. Thank you Lynn.
The cruise and transfers were excellent but I do not rate British airways flights. We flew from Manchester to London then Venice. We waited in a queue for 2 hours to check in as there were only 2 desks open! The return journey. - We could have left the ship at 7am. We got picked up at 10am which took us to the airport at 10.45 and our flight to London was 5 hours later. Our flight from London to Manchester was delayed by an hour then as we were taxi-ing, we had to return to the stand for left luggage! We arrived in Manchester at 11pm! There was a direct flight to Manchester which we would have easily made (with another airline) at midday which would have got us into Manchester at 2.30pm We were exhausted when we got home. Apart from this the holiday was fabulous and the service from iglu was great.
We had an amazing time. The ship is a little tired but you can’t fault the staff. They were excellent and the ship had a lovely atmosphere.
As usual Iglu/Planet Cruise covered everything, from taxis, hotels, train transportation, flights and of course the cruise. All organised a superb. We had a fantastic holiday. The service on Celebrity, we reckon is one of the best. The crew on the Constellation were fantastic across the whole ship. The entertainment was possibly the best we have experienced on a cruise and the lads serving in the Martini Bar give great service and are great entertainers. All round a great holiday and well organised.
There was plenty to do on the ship. The food was nice with a great selection in the buffet. Entertainment was very good and varied. Our trips on shore were really enjoyable. Customer services were fantastic both with helping to retrieve my lost suitcase and finding us an alternative room as our original room was directly under the kitchen.
Venice was really good. The water taxi transfers from the Airport to the Hotel and from the Hotel to the Taxi pick up point was excellent. Thank you for arranging tremendous transfers that were simple and effortless. The cruise ship was more than we expected and better than our last Celebrity cruise. All the staff were approachable, friendly and provided a great service. My only criticism would be the length of the transfers from Venice to Ravena. The journey from Venice to Ravena took 3 and a half hours with the return journey to Marco Polo airport taking 3 hours.
Our experience aboard Celebrity Constellation was excellent. Unfortunately time on board was delayed by over 2 days as EasyJet cancelled our flight. We didn’t enter any activities nor take any excursions.
We had a good cabin, the meals were good. The shows were good. Th ports of call were good. We enjoyed our cruise. Only issue was transfer from Ravenna was a long time, 3 hours, then our flight was scheduled for 20:35. Long time in airport, when earlier flights went to London airports. However we left 22:10, and when back at Heathrow sat in plane for an hour. Eventually got home at 01:30, much later than expected.
Excellent ship and staff all brilliant.
Celebrity constellation was fabulous in every department.
