Constellation - Celebrity Cruises - cruise ship review & photos

At first glance, she looks like something the LEGO brick fan club could have designed. With her stark, angular looks, Celebrity Cruises' Constellation is not your average pleasure ship. The space-age, business-like facade of this floating five-star grand resort hides opulent interior spaces that are ingeniously designed and give this impressive seagoing high-rise a distinct ocean liner feel. Offering her guests superior service, fabulous food and lots of elbow room, Constellation has rightfully become a celebrity in her own right. 

Youngest of Celebrity Cruises' Millennium-Class quartet, Constellation was built in 2002 by Chantiers de l'Atlantique at St. Nazaire, France. Carrying up to 2,450 guests in five-star comfort, she spends the summer in the Baltic before crossing the Atlantic for a series of cruises to Canada and New England. Like a true celebrity, Constellation moves south in winter spending her time in the sunny Caribbean.
