We enjoyed most aspects of the cruise. Great room and our room steward, Juan, was terrific. The classic drink package, which was included, was more than adequate. I first thought I would have to upgrade but that was not necessary. The ... Read more

We were told by our cruise planner to arrive for boarding by noon at the latest "to avoid long lines". We arrived at the ship at 11:40 and did not embark until 1:20. There were several sections with 4 employees at each, ... Read more

This is our third Celebrity cruise and first on an S Class ship. Overall, we couldn't be more satisfied with the experience. We took the 10 day Ultimate Caribbean cruise leaving Ft. Lauderdale, Port Everglades on January 20, 2017. ... Read more

EMBARKATION: Easy breezy as we were in a suite. We arrived early and were escorted past all the lines and were on the ship within 15 minutes of arrival at the terminal. We even snuck into our room early and popped the champagne! The ... Read more

Good price for a short cruise. Had never been to Key West/Bahamas so wanted this experience. The room attendant was very attentive. There was a shortage of wooden hangars and we were not given any additional ones. Really enjoyed the ... Read more

We are Celebrity fans and the Reflection lived up to our expectations of this cruise line. The ship is clean & well-maintained, and the staff friendly and knowledgeable. The food in the main dining room is quite good. We ate at ... Read more

We arrived in Florida the previous day to sailing, stayed at a hotel for the night and went to the port the next day. We had our luggage tags already via mail so they took our luggage and we went into the building to get through security ... Read more

We chose this for the itinerary. It was wonderful and we had arranged all private tours with the exception of the trip to see the Condors. The ship's first tour was late and since we were the last tour to the farm, we did not see the ... Read more

We boarded the Eclipse in Miami on Jan 2nd. This was the first time on a larger ship. We were used to ships with about 650 passengers. Boarding (at noon) in Miami, while the port was extremely busy, went quite seamlessly. Our stateroom ... Read more

This was our first cruise on Celebrity. To put this review in perspective: we are a family of three (50s with teenage daughter). We like to stay active. We have a family rule of "no elevators/stairs only" while on the ship, and ... Read more

My family just finished sailing the Celebrity Eclipse on a 6 day sailing. There is no doubt that the premium customer service and the aura of elegance that Celebrity used to pride itself in is slipping. While this is only my 3rd cruise ... Read more

We chose this 7 night New Year's Eve departure because we are familiar with the Celebrity product and we found a very attractive fare too good to turn down. We booked with a TBA rate and were quickly assigned veranda 8114. Sunny balcony ... Read more

This is our 37th cruise. Overall Celebrity delivers the best for the money. This was a New Years cruise for our family of 8. Everybody did their own thing but when it came to food we were all together. Sure there are always some complaints ... Read more
