Our Ship Review
Celebrity Cruises
Cruise Line
Deal Expert / Travel Blogger

This Millennium-class Celebrity ship debuted in 2002, but was updated in 2013 with innovations from the line’s newer Solstice class, including enhanced Wi-Fi, spa-class staterooms, and the exclusive Blu restaurant. On board the 2,170-guest “Connie,” as the ship is affectionately called, cruisers can expect what Celebrity has made a name for: above and beyond service, top restaurants, and an overall relaxed yet tasteful atmosphere.

What We Love

Michael’s Club: Suite guests have exclusive access to this quiet lounge, where they can enjoy personalized concierge service, complimentary canapés and drinks, and low-key live music.

Martini Bar: This buzzing nightlife spot is an experience, with fun-to-watch flair bartenders and a countertop made of ice.

Top Chef at Sea: A partnership with Bravo’s “Top Chef” resulted in the entertaining “Quickfire Challenge,” a high-energy cook-off in which passengers are randomly selected to compete on stage and serve their creations to three judges.

Best Known For

Canyon Ranch SpaClub: Treatments range from seaweed leaf wraps to aromatherapy massages, but for those who don’t want to shell out the big bucks, there’s also a $25 per day pass to relax in the sauna-like Persian Garden. Spots fill up quickly on sea days, so book early.

The Food: The skillful tableside service, extensive wine selection, and sophisticated dishes at specialty restaurant Ocean Liners is worthy of the $50 upcharge (flambéed lobster tail, anyone?). You don’t have to pay extra for a fine meal, however — the ship’s buffet, Oceanview Café, is one of the best at sea.

Who It's Best For

Couples Over 40: Cruisers looking for a relaxing time — without constant activities and energetic younger cruisers — will enjoy this quiet ship, which generally draws an older crowd.

Don't Say We Didn't Warn You

Not as Exciting for Families: Although there are a few kid-friendly activities, families won’t find them as exciting as those of some competitors.

The Late-Night Performance is a Little Zany: Though the Constellation-exclusive show “Elyria” has a talented cast and impressive acrobatics, the risqué content may be overly suggestive for some taste levels.
