Asia Tour 2017 – Settling into Ship Life


All Aboard the Celebrity Constellation cruise. Eating, drinking, socializing, relaxing! Asia Tour 2017 Begins

Day 2 – Checked onto the Celebrity Constellation cruise ship at Port Mina Zayed in Abu Dhabi. We were welcomed aboard with a glass of champagne and lots of friendly faces milled about. We scooted up to the Oceanview Cafe buffet for a light lunch before checking out all of the amazing facilities on board. I won’t go into great detail as I will dedicate more time in another blog to address the ship itself, so watch for that blog. After attending the mandatory lifeboat drill, we settled into the truly relaxing ship life.
