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.
Cabin 6098 on the Constellation. A bright and airy, pleasant cabin with a sliding door leading to a balcony.  The cabin was well-equipped and had a very comfortable bed.

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 evening.
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!
The Martini Bar, one of the very popular bars on board the Constellation.
