M/S Celebrity Constellation is a millennium-class cruise
ship belonging to Celebrity Cruises. She was built at the Chantiers
de l’Atlantique shipyard in St. Nazaire, France in 2002.
This was our first time on the “Connie” as she is affectionately
known by her regulars. We spent a 12-day voyage crossing the
Arabian Sea from Abu Dhabi, UAE to Mumbai, India.

The lively pool deck on the Constellation. There was a
bar at each end of the pool, as well as a burger place and
some tables and chairs. At one end of the deck was a
raised stage where live entertainment took place each
afternoon and where deck parties were held in the
The Rooftop Terrace where movies were shown each
night on the giant plasma screen under the stars.
There were also tables and chairs and little clusters of
seating areas under parasols, if you just wanted to sit
and watch the world go by and avoid the crowds at the
pool. There was also a pleasant Rooftop Terrace bar.
The distinctive backlit marble-effect Grand Staircase,
seen here from the top looking down towards the main
reception area (purser’s desk).
This was the area known as The Foyer, which led
through to the Fortunes casino. The Officers’ Soiree
and the “silent discos” often take place here.
The Sunset Bar at the stern of the Constellation. It was
an international bar so served just about every spirit
going. During the evening, there would be low-key
entertainment, e.g. a guy playing a guitar. We spent a
lot of time perched on those bar stools!
