Ship Facts: Celebrity Reflection Review (by Cruise Critic!) | Celebrity Reflection Deck Plans
First Transatlantic.....not last
First transatlantic for us. When we arrived at the check-in terminal, it was crowded and we were notified of the "engine problem" the ship encountered and that we would not be going to Tenerife. Disappointed but okay with us. Ship gave a reasonable refund and tax credit.

The ship is beautiful. This was our first Solstice class cruise. We were on deck 11 and it was both convenient and quiet. Some of the guests we met that were on deck 12 complained of excessive noise originating from the ship that prevented them from sleeping. Sailed Aqua Class balcony cabin which afforded us access to the Blu restaurant.

I can honestly say the food on the ship was outstanding. We did not try any of the major up-charge restaurants (only Bistro 5 for lunch one day) as we felt the food was so very good in the other venues we didn't need anything further.

I understand that 2/3 of the ship's passengers were Captain's Club Members with a majority being Elite status. With all the free drink coupons given on a daily basis for this level status all of the bars (14 I think and believe me we did explore each one) were filled between 5 - 7 pm making it difficult for the non Elite status to find a seat.

Production show entertainment was very good, magician good, comedians not so good, concerts by Antonio Salci (sp?) outstanding. Enrichment serious very good. Anyone that says they are bored on a "sea day" cruise must have an extremely exciting life as there was plenty to do (both complimentary and pay-for-sessions).

Since there were many "seasoned" travelers on this cruise, the general comment was that the diminished size of the Sky Lounge (due to adding 12th deck) was felt to be a disadvantage.

Loved the "almost smoke free" environment.

All in all, Celebrity did a great job under duress with the engine problem. Will definitely plan another Solstice Class cruise in the near future.
