Left from Civitavecchia, Italy. After being dropped off by shuttle it was a treacherous walk from gate of Port Security with our heavy luggage to find information on how to get to the ship. Upon arrival by bus we were told we had to get ... Read more

This is our 41st cruise and our 2nd with Celebrity. The ship is beautiful and maintained superbly. Our suite was a corner suite on deck 8. Very large and well appointed. The only drawback here was a very large balcony that we could not ... Read more

The Celebrity Reflection is a very large ship - the captain called it the 'flagship' of the fleet. It is highly decorative and the cabins are well-appointed. It also had one of the most comfortable beds I've ever slept in. The cost of the ... Read more

This was our 3rd transatlantic crossing (2nd on Celebrity). We spent 3 weeks in northern Italy and stayed at a B&B in Civitavecchia the night before the cruise. The owner of the B&B took us to the port. Check-in was very ... Read more

This was our first Transatlantic cruise, and it will not be the last. The Reflection experience lived up our `expectations and exceeded quite a few as well. Of course, on a 15 night voyage, not everything can be exactly as you want it, but ... Read more

I'll summarize the suggested topics: this is our 12th cruise with Celebrity (X). We always book a suite category and, on Reflection, once again booked a Signature Suite (4103). Our cruising style is to relax, eat (love the specialty ... Read more

This trip highlighted a 3 day stop in Israel. Headlines of violence caused Celebrity to cancel the Israeli stops. Arguably, this was a correct decision. But Israel has been in turmoil since 1948. A troubling issue was that it was a last ... Read more

We, like many of our fellow cruisers, booked this itinerary primarily to see Israel, and were deeply disappointed when those stops were cancelled due to demonstrations and tensions in and around Jerusalem. A perusal of the news, and ... Read more

As far as I could tell, most people on this trip chose it for the itinerary -- three days in Israel. Many of us had never been there. Unfortunately, the Celebrity Cruises decided that it was not worth the risk to dock in Israeli ports ... Read more

The ship just looks like a block of flats from the outside but she is beautiful inside. Our cabin 8122 was perfect. Not too near the lifts and stairways and so the corridor was very quiet. The crew were very good- always going out of ... Read more

We had 30 cruises with Princess but decided to go on a Celebrity cruise because it included 3 days in Israel. We expected a high quality cruise similar to Princess or possibly an improvement. Although the itinerary was good, the ... Read more

This was the first time on Celebrity and the first time going on a larger ship. We had high expectations of the 'modern luxury' line. It's true, the ship was very comfortable, modern and well-maintained. It never felt over-crowded, and ... Read more
