I have previously traveled with Celebrity three times and all three were with the Century (which was recently sold to a Chinese company). The total time spent on the ship was over a month and I loved everything about this smaller boat. ... Read more

This is my 4th cruise, my 4th with Celebrity, the 2nd one at Christmas and, for the first time, I was disappointed. The room was shabby - see below - and the dining room food was just about ok, although the service was great - even if a ... Read more

We usually try to go on a new itinerary each time as such we decided to go on this cruise around Cape Horn. Transfer to Valparaiso and boarding was a breeze. As the passengers not from the US markets do not get the luggage tags with glue, ... Read more

We chose this cruise for the Demi Lovato concert which ended up being the only disappointment of the cruise. Demi was amazing but we booked months in advance to get VIP and meet & greet tickets and were excluded from the meet & ... Read more

Being loyal Princess cruisers we wanted to experience the "Celebrity Difference" for ourselves. I was simply amazed at the level of service for this "Christmas" cruise. The embarkation was easy and the methodology of ... Read more

Although they say they gave Summit an update in March 2016, I certainly didn't see it and was disappointed how aged and shabby it is looking. I have sailed other Celebrity vessels and must say Summit was the poorest I have been on. Staff ... Read more

We've done about 8 Celebrity cruises since 1997 and this was the first time I've done a holiday cruise and first time on the Reflection. This may sound snobby, but Celebrity tends to draw a more "sophisticated crowd" and ... Read more

My first time cruising and I had no idea what to expect. Firstly the size of the ship amazed me. My cabin was far larger than I thought possible. I was on the 6th deck with balcony and it was more than adequate. Robert kept my room ... Read more

This was a cruise to celebrate a 55th Birthday with friends and family. Overall this cruise was good, but not as good as Celebrity used to be 5 years ago. Service was excellent, specially in the dining room and café. Food was very ... Read more

We have been cruising with Celebrity since 1999. I will try to keep rants about the " good old days of cruising" to a minimum. But will point out differences between M and S class ships. On this trip we were cruising with ... Read more

We are avid Celebrity cruisers but this was our first time on the Reflection. We opted to spend the night prior to embarkation in Miami (we stayed at the Marriott Marquis and it was quite nice--very close to the port). The Uber ... Read more

With one previous cruise on Sun Princess in 2008 we are not expert cruisers. Maybe we expected too much. The serve yourself buffet was a real bun fight, dodging people and collecting food then trying to find somewhere to sit and eat was at ... Read more
