Ship Facts: Celebrity Reflection Review (by Cruise Critic!) | Celebrity Reflection Deck Plans
Great crossing
We had an excellent, though not perfect experience on this wonderful new ship. Embarkation was messy. The many back to back cruisers complicated things by pushing their way through to get back on the ship - at noon. They had many complaints about not having a special line so they could re-board the ship without waiting. The computers appeared to be down, but once they were up we boarded without much trouble.

We dined in Blu and never had a problem getting a table as long as we didn't try to enter Blu at 7 right after the elite Happy Hour ended. We liked the drink coupons and found the bar on the Ocean View Cafe to be the best. It was much quieter and we could talk easily to other passengers. The Aqua Suite room was just the right size and the proximity to the Aqua Spa and the Relaxation Room and Persian Garden was convenient. The lecturers were good, but there were several more on the crossing last year from Southampton. Perhaps the passengers from England expect more lectures.

The Captain was great and should give more talks. I didn't understand the major problem with missing Tenerife. Been there, done that but we appreciated the cabin credit. Never remember receiving one before for missing a port which has happened often due to weather, engine problems, political problems, etc. the food has improved on Celebrity in the regular restaurants and in the Blu. They have found a better supplier.

The price of Transatlantic voyages is very low which contributed to the huge number of elites. We didn't feel elite because of this and will try to avoid the cheap voyages in the future because of this.

Nonetheless we had no complaints about the Reflection, it is a beautiful ship with a great crew!
