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

Embarkation went well and we were on the ship fairly quickly. The ship looked to be well maintained, and very clean. Our stateroom was clean, but the curtains for the balcony window/door had holes in them Dining in the MDR was a ... 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

Let me begin by stating that I am a frequent cruiser, with over 40 cruises on the books. We typically take 3 cruises a year, almost always 10-16 days each. This year we spent 16 nights on the Reflection, 14 on the Solstice and then 10 on ... Read more

Sailed November 2016
Ship was 1 1/2 hr late to Miami. Therefore everything was backed up. We arrived at parking place, 10 minutes away, and passengers were still being removed from the ship at 11am. Once we arrived at the ship the check-in lines were ... Read more

We had sailed with Celebrity previously (Australia & NZ) so when the opportunity to sail with them again to India, we jumped at the chance. Embarkation was very straight forward and we appreciated getting on board early so that we ... Read more

This was our 2nd time on Summit, 5 years apart. Enjoyed the updated version, new carpet, new optional restaurants, but still not much to do other than the usual shows, casino, etc. The specialty shows in the main theater were very good, ... Read more

As use, Celebrity gave great cruise. Maybe it's because it has been two years since our last cruise, but I believe the service was he best ever. We did not book any excursions through the ship as we have learned we can get equivalent ... Read more

Everything about the Celebrity Summit is just GREAT. I acknowledge that it doesn't have all the bells and whistles of the Solstice Class or the fun water slides etc (found on other lines). The ship gives you the feel of a traditional ocean ... Read more

We selected a Celebrity Reflection cruise base upon a nearly flawless cruise on a previous Celebrity cruise. Solstice class is the largest of the fleet, but not where some of the competition is. Older but updated ship was well ... Read more

Great adult family cruise. We loved the ship, enjoyed the ports even thought the weather was not the best, loved the food and had a great experience. The ship was elegant. We enjoyed the angled balcony which gave us a little more room to ... Read more
