Default Constellation - Scandinavia & Russia What's New?

25-Day countdown to board the Constellation to Scandinavia & Russia. Last on board Constellation was October 05.

Anything new onboard the Constellation?

How is the dining with the departure of Michel Roux? (is it true he left)?

Special interest in the Scandinavian ports?

Weather for Northern Europe?

Thanks!! 8)

CELEBRITY CRUISES CHARTS NEW CULINARY COURSE (January 05, 2007 ) - Celebrity Cruises today announced plans to evolve its fleetwide culinary program, ending its affiliation with Master Chef Michel Roux. The mutual agreement coincides with the end of Roux┬?s current contract with Celebrity.

So sad to see this, but hope the food will still be great , as this is one reason for choosing Celebrity lines over others.
Please let me know, what you find on your upcoming cruise.
Thank's
Liv

Ah, did you see the more recent press release announcing that Celebrity Cruises has retained a team of cullinary consultants lead by Elizabeth Blau?

I really doubt that Elizabeth Blau wants her name and reputation connected with cuisine that is substandard in any way. OTOH, it's very likely that the French style of Michel Roux will give way to more diverse styles of cuisine as the new team makes its imprint.

Well, the announcement of his departure stated that he would continue as a consultant but with a more limited role so he probably is not yet completely gone. Nonetheless, the line subsequently announced a new partnership with a team of culinary consultants lead by chef Elizabeth Blau. We probably will see some change in the style of cuisine, but the quality will still be there.

Oslo has a lot of interesting attractions. Its city hall has very impressive artwork and there's a park with a very impressive collection of very realistic statues depicting human life from birth to death, all done by the same artist. The ski jump, built for Olympic Winter Games several decades ago, and the Viking museum also are quite interesting. Finally, be sure to allow some time to stroll the main street (converted to a pedestrian plaza) where there are many street artists and sidewalk cafes, and it's accessible on foot from most of the piers.

In Copenhagen, the tour of the royal palace is a worthwhile take, and you'll get to see (but not touch...) some of the crown jewels along the way. The statue of Hans Christian Anderson's Little Mermaid seems to make most visitors' "must see" list, but it is a very nice piece of art. Copenhagen's main boulevard is also a pedestrian mall with shops, cafes, and a lot of street performers, but it is not as convenient to the ship as Oslo's.

Very similar to New England -- quite pleasant for sightseeing during the daytime. A shower is a possibility, but there was a lot of sunshine on my cruise to that region.
