When I heard that Celebrity Cruises ordered a fifth ship at the Meyer Werft, I immediately decided to book for the first cruise of this ship. So we booked already before the first cut of steel.Thanks to the web cam and the regular update of photo's, I have now my own album of the whole construction process.
And when this beauty was floated out, we were there for a week, anxious whether the deadlines in the construction would be respected.
And when we arrived in Amsterdam to board for he inaugural cruise, we were full of expectations. But we were overwhelmed by the descent luxe this ship shows.
For the first time we had booked a balcony cabin, but unfortunately we couldn't use it often due to the bad weather.
With our second cruise we sailed to Miami on the transatlantic.
And now we sailed in the Mediterranean in a discovering cruise to the roots of our culture.
If you do 3 cruises in a short time with the same ship, you will have the same menus. But every time we managed to discover different plates.
And if I compare with MSC, the chose for breakfast, lunch and dinner is more varied with Celebrity.
Another surprising fact was that a lot of crew-members started a new term and that some of them spontaneously came over to us to greet us.
During these three cruises on the Reflection we had never something to complain about.
We tried different beverage packages during these cruises and we never felt to be treated in a neglecting way at any bar or the MDR.
We tried this time Bistro on Five, one word delicious.
We have visited Santorini some years ago. This time the rain poured out the sky and we went up and down with the cable car and back to the ship.
