The Celebrity cruise experience is based on and branded around grandeur, glamour and exclusivity. There is a real sense of extravagance in everything that the cruise company does and what it offers its customers. All of which goes some way to explain why the Celebrity Constellation is such a magnificent vessel and why it offers the kind of holiday experience that many of us can only really dream of. The good news though is that prices, while they might be prohibitively high for some, are not nearly as off-putting as you might imagine. In any case, if you do manage to spend any time on-board, whether you've bagged a bargain or not, you are sure to remember the experience for the rest of your days.
In the coming month, towards the end of 2012, the Constellation will be heading around various parts of Europe's more elegant coastlines, starting from Southampton and taking in parts of France, Spain and Portugal. Thereafter and looking further ahead there are tours planned to the Bahamas and some of the Western Caribbean's more impressive islands, including Jamaica and the Caymans. She will eventually drop anchor in Miami, Florida as well, which is among the most renowned party towns on the American east coast.
Interestingly, the design of the Constellation and its fellow Millennium Class cruise ships provided much of the inspiration for Celebrity's Solstice Class of ship as it was being developed. However, recent changes made to update and improve the Constellation were in turn inspired by what emerged as some of the most popular features within the Solstice Class of ships. All of which lead Celebrity Cruises to describe the Constellation as having been "Solsticized".
You can book Thomas Cook cruises more easily than ever and long or short stays aboard the Constellation and the rest of the Century fleet are regularly offered at very eye-catching prices.
