thought that this was unatainable. I did the research on shore excursions so that I could do the sightseeing on my own terms and not have to keep up with the cruiseline excursions. The end result was a trip that was wonderful and exhausting but well worth it. The ports of Sicily, Santorini and Rhodes were beautiful. .
The Reflection is a beautiful ship. Our room had a balcony and was spacious.
The food in the main dining room was superb as was the service. We didn't want to eat in any of the speciality restaurants because every night we had something special to look forward to. The desserts on Cafe 5 were spectacular so we decided to forgo the dining room desserts and have ours watching the sunsets each night.
We did not go to the shows but preferred to listen to the music in the differenct venues, there was plenty of variety.
The only negative to this cruise was that there were many children on this cruise that were out of control. Although it was clearly stated that no one under 16 was allowed in the hot tubs, parents allowed their very young(2-6 yrs old)use it as a pool. I think the cruise line personnel could have enforced that rule and allow more adults to use the hot tubs.
Overall I would love to sail on the Reflection again.
