Another great cruise with Celebrity
Destination: Eastern Caribbean
Aqua Spa on the Reflection is double the size. We purchased a week pass which cost $199 for the two of us. it's good they doubled the size as on Eclipse and Solstice the spa was often crowded - not so on the Reflection. They only sell a certain number of weekly passes so best to get them on embarkation day in case they sell out.
Staff were all very friendly and accommodating. Must say that the captain on this ship was fantastic. He always had a presence around the ship and made daily announcements. He was very personable and you got the impression that he genuinely cared about each and every passengers safety and well being.
We like Celebrity because of their strict non-smoking policies. Smoking is restricted to only a few outside areas on the ship. No smoking is allowed on stateroom balconies. Our neighbours were apparently not aware of this and on embarkation day were smoking on their balconies and it was drifting over to ours. We spoke with the assistant housekeeping manager and she dealt with the situation immediately. From then on we had no issues and the manager checked in with us several times during the week to make sure there were no more issues.
We did feel more movement on this ship than on previous ships. Very rocky on our first few days.
We didn't partake in a lot of the Celebrity life activities but did attend the Captain's presentation on ship navigation which was very interesting and I'd recommend it. Magic show was also very good.
Following our week on the Reflection we sailed a quick 2 nights on the Constellation, which was a completely different experience (see my review in the Constellation review section). We love the Solstice class ships and would recommend them highly. They are definitely not "party" ships, but for us a week of rest and relaxation in 'modern luxury' is exactly what we want, and once again Celebrity did not disappoint. Less

Cabin 8138 - Deluxe Ocean View. Excellent cabin choice. Very quiet - no noise from above or below. Very close to forward elevators but no issues with noise from elevators. Bed close to balcony.Read All Deluxe Ocean View with Verandah (partially obstructed view) (2C) Reviews >>
