Caribbean Cruise: Exploring the Ship

I finally a few minutes to sit and reflect on our amazing cruise to the Caribbean. My mom and I had a great time together exploring Key West and Cozumel together. This is not out first girls trip together. We have been to Las Vegas as well. I am going to break this post up to make sure to get all the amazing details.  Today I am recapping the beautiful ship and then next week I'll recap our two ports, Key West and Cozumel.

Last Saturday morning, mom and I headed out of Raleigh to Ft. Lauderdale. The flight was quick and we were boarding the ship by 2pm. We were greeted with champagne on arrival which was a perfect way to start our vacation! We got settled into our cabin easily and headed to grab a late lunch on the buffet. Usually, I am not a fan of buffets. The excessive amount of food always results in mediocre quality in my opinion. One exception for me is on a cruise. All the items are fresh and you can sample unique food without wasting an entire entrée.

After filling up I spent the rest of the afternoon exploring the ship. The Celebrity Constellation is a smaller ship compared to the new gigantic vessels. It is 12 stories tall including the pool and observation decks. I was glad to be on a smaller ship because it was easy to learn your way around which is great on a short trip.

Each night we ate dinner in the main dining room. I adored indulging in a 4 course meal each night and getting the opportunity to try different entrees I never order. After dinner each night, we went to see a production in the main theater. The shows ranged from musical productions to magicians to acrobatics. There was an occasional stop at the martini bar on the way of course!
