Announcing Celebrity Constellation – 5 Sept – 7 Sept 2012

Always on the lookout for a bargain or mini cruise, this 2 night cruise from Amsterdam to Southampton was brought to my attention while reading a thread on a cruising forum that I am a member of ( . I quickly made some inquiry’s about prices and within 48 hours we had booked.

The cruise is a re-positional one which will take us from Amsterdam to Southampton with a sea day in between. Because it is a short cruise we have booked a Concierge Class cabin (#9100) on the Sky Deck. The Constellation has recently been in for a refit and the term “Solsticized” is what Celebrity call the make over, it brings the interiors more in line with the newer Solstice class ships in Celebrity’s fleet.



Wednesday Sept 5 Amsterdam, Netherlands 4:30pm

Celebrity Constellation English Channel Itinerary

This will be a welcome late summer break and I am already looking forward to it. The plan is to drive to Southampton airport and fly direct to Schiphol airport in Amsterdam with Flybe. We will overnight in Amsterdam before joining the ship the next day.

We have picked the Eden Hotel to stay because of its location.  If reviews are to be believed it has TripAdvisor Traveller Rating of 3½ out of 5 from 830 travellers.

Below is the cabin arrangement but I think this might be the older version. I will post actual photos when I actually get to see it.
