My husband was very resistant to the idea of cruising but he had promised that we would go on a cruise for my 60th birthday and I held him to that promise. I researched ships and itineraries carefully, and had been assured by friends who ... Read more

We had done this itinerary 4 years ago and enjoyed it so much we wanted to do it again. Ports: Being the second visit to the ports allowed us to be a bit more selective of what to see/do. For the majority of the ports we explored on ... Read more

Chose this based on recommendations of two different people who had been on this ship. This was our first cruise ever, and we were very pleased with our experience. First of all, 100% of the staff were friendly, helpful, upbeat- even the ... Read more

We had been on Celebrity before and liked it. This ship was going where we wanted to go so we chose it! Our cabin was a concierge class and that was special. We had fresh fruit every morning and canapes around 3. It seemed like every ... Read more

We were first-time cruisers and we were delighted to have taken up a recommendation from an acquaintance who cruised on Equinox last October. We booked our own flights and hotels because we could not get direct flights from our home ... Read more

A group of our BFFs decided to cruise together. Greek Isles was the consensus destination. Celebrity had the best itinerary for our chosen cruise dates. My partner and I were mildly apprehensive as we prefer small ship experience and, ... Read more

Only reasons we didn't give it 5-star treatment was the annoying upselling of meal and drinks packages. Also really shocked when we were told "your cabin grade doesn't entitle you to shower gel" just a piece of white soap. We did ... Read more

First time on a big ship cruise and first time with Celebrity. Layout of 'Reflection' very impressive with great appointments and luxury decor. Food and service first class although despite being able to choose dinner times we always ... Read more

A review of our 21 night (back to back) Mediterranean cruise on the Celebrity Reflection. Embarkation at Civitavecchia was brilliant. We arrived just before 11am to no lines at all and were onboard by 11.10. We set about exploring the ... Read more

Stayed 2 nights in Rome Pre-cruise and discovered an issue with the booking. Just by way of advice, always book private transfers since, as we discovered, shared transfers means you share airport to hotel transfer with not only people on ... Read more

This was a celebratory trip for us and we were definitely not disappointed. We haven't been on a cruise for a long time, preferring to do land trips, however this cruise renewed our faith in cruising. We chose the Reflection ship for the ... Read more

This was our 9th cruise and the Reflection stands out as one of the best ships we have been on, but I think its also the newest at only 4 years old. We booked a standard class cabin and had the classic drinks package and certainly had ... Read more

We were disappointed overall in this cruise. It just didn't have that wow factor. You were nickled and dimed at every turn. Really charging for water snd adding 18% gratuity? Wine costs were atrocious. An on board purchase of a bottle ... Read more

Picked this cruise because of ports. Embarkation after flights went smoothly and also disembarkation. However why do cruise companies when you book flights and cruise through them book flights which leave you waiting 8 hours at an ... Read more

On the plus side, this was a great itinerary, with the three Croatian cities & Kotor particular highlights, & Ravenna a surprise gem, with its beautiful mosaics & a very attractive central square. Constellation is a grand ... Read more

We chose this for the itinerary viz Venice, Ravenna, Split, Dubrovnik, Zadar. We usually go P and O so were a bit worried about the ship being American. The fact that the clientele was so varied actually was a benefit- we really enjoyed ... Read more

We are long time (20 years) cruisers on Celebrity and Azamara. We chose this cruise because our sons had never been to to Med. We have recently preferred the service and intimacy of Azamra, but got a great deal on this cruise. We also ... Read more

Two ports drew us to this cruise. Montenegro and Dubrovnik. Both were wonderful. The ship is old and tired. The staff were friendly and with the exception of Leonardo on excursions were friendly and helpful at all times. Do not ... Read more

We chose this cruise for the itinerary and it did not repeat ports that we have been to on other cruises in Europe. Although we do prefer Solstice class ships, the Constellation was a ship we had not been on since our Scandinavian cruise ... Read more

It was our sixth cruise on Celebrity and unfortunately this time we found the overall experience disappointing. The approach of Celebrity to now charge extra for so many services really cheapens its image and makes one question the ... Read more

We chose this cruise for the ports of call and a chance to try out Celebrity. The ports of call were great, apart from Ravenna, it's miles from anywhere, but it's an opportunity for Celebrity to make quite a bit of money on coaching ... Read more
