My husband and I did this exact cruise in 2011 and absolutely LOVED the Celebrity experience! Since then, we've done a Celebrity Med cruise, an NCL and a Carnival cruise. We took our daughter on the NCL cruise, and I also took her on ... Read more

We chose this ship after reading reviews and after seeing the ship docked in Wellington when in holiday in NZ three years ago. We could have picked up a cruise in Brisbane but we chose to fly down to Sydney as we thought the ship would be ... Read more

PRE-CRUISE: We started with a super easy and direct morning flight into Ft. Lauderdale. We grabbed a quick and inexpensive Lyft ride over to the port. We boarded at Port 25. We sailed through the counter and paperwork process. However, we ... 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

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

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
