Our party of 4 were expecting a lot from this ship. Travel agents advertised it as 5 star but we were all of the opinion this was not the case. Embarkation took 2 hours, with both the cruise line and international terminal both blaiming ... Read more

Wife and I are in our early-mid 50's, but pretty hip so not into an "old people" cruise at all. We had sailed on Celeb Summit last year (first cruise) and had a REALLY great experience so decided to give it another whirl this ... Read more

We wanted to try Celebrity, as we had heard a lot of great things about this line and about Reflection in particular. While we came away impressed with both, I do not think this line or ship is better than some that we have sailed on ... Read more

Had wanted to sail on Celebrity for some time and they did not disappoint. Had huge issues with Delta getting down to Miami in the morning but we still arrived at the Cruise terminal by 11:00AM. Check-in was the smoothest I have ever ... Read more

We had a great trip with almost perfect weather. The crowd was younger than expected which was nice. Upgraded to the premium liquor package which I thought was well worth it. Had some really good drinks at the World Class Bar. Thought ... Read more

This was our second cruise on the Equinox and we were happy to see they have not changed. The entire staff and crew were friendly and helpful. The restaurant staff was exceptional, offering attentive service and responding to any ... Read more

Just back from our 7 day western Caribbean cruise on the Silhouette. Since I was reading these reviews for months before our cruise, I thought I would pass on some things to educate others. The ship is very nice, cabins are adequate. ... Read more

We always gravitate to celebrity if possible. The ship is clean and upscale, the food has improved over previous years. We found the staff to be friendly and accommodating in all venues of the ship. Our cabin was a standard balcony on ... Read more

Booked this cruise to have a family holiday. Also chose Australian destinations as passports where not required. Chose an ocean view room with a veranda. We did use the veranda but may not have one on our next cruise as we only spent ... Read more

My husband, daughter, her friend and I cruised on the Reflection over our March Break. I booked and paid for two concierge rooms. This is the first cruise we've been on in 3 years. It's not our first Celebrity cruise but it was our ... Read more

My brother is having a "significant" birthday this year, and last year asked us to help him plan a cruise to celebrate (he's never been on a cruise, while we've been on several). Not only did I say we'd help plan it, but we'd go ... Read more

Every March, we go on a cruise. We travel as a couple generally and often meet up with friends. This year we once again chose Celebrity and were not disappointed. The service on the ship is outstanding. Every staff member (bar one) ... Read more

We tried Celebrity for the first time last week and LOVED it! We are a family of 5 with kids ages 17, 13, and 9. We have taken one Carnival cruise many years ago, 4 Disney cruises on each of their ships, and one Royal cruise on the ... Read more

This was my 4th cruise on the Celebrity line and my first time on the Eclipse. The Eclipse is like the other Solstice class ships. Layout is very similar so it took no time to figure out where everything was located. Friendly and helpful ... Read more

We chose this cruise to go to Mardi Gras. It worked out great as the dock is close to town and we could walk to the parade sites and pretty much anywhere in the French Quarter. The other ports were OK but we have been to them many times ... Read more

This cruise included Mardi Gras in New Orleans. Music was basically Jazz.. The passengers were born in the 50's for the most part. Entertainment was awful. High school musical and amateurish. Comedians were very good. Pool deck music was ... Read more

We wanted to see Vietnam as we had not been there and felt it would be an easy way to get there. Although Constellation is smaller than most ships we have been on we like it and we thought our cabin was first class, it was a good size ... Read more

This was one area we had not been to in the previous cruises around the Caribbean. Celebrity needs help in a couple areas: 1. The boarding process at the Miami Cruise Terminal was a very slow. Maybe the slowest we've seen? 2. The ... Read more

Overall, this was the best ship we have been on in terms of specialty restaurants and service, including the far more expensive Oceana Marina. Itinerary/Food/Service are our priorities and in this case our teenage daughter picked the ... Read more

This was the largest ship and most expensive cruise we've taken. Last year we cruised on the Rhapsody of the Seas which seemed like a smaller clone (2000 passengers versus 3000). The dining, cabin and service was exceptional. To ... Read more

We chose this cruise because Celebrity has a good reputation. I would say that it is mainly deserved. The ship itself was very smart and the buffet is the best I have experienced in terms of choice and spacious layout. Food was ... Read more

We chose the Constellation over the Millennium primarily because it garnered better reviews and had Ocean Liners intact. Both sailed out of Singapore, which would have saved us air tickets and time travelling to port. We were initially ... Read more
