Best cruise EVER!
Embarkation: Rome (Civitavecchia)
The entertainment staff was so far above what I've previously experienced cruising (I'm admittedly inexperienced -- only one prior cruise, on Princess in Alaska; my roommate agreed, having cruised previously several times on Carnival) that there was no comparison. The shows are just great. The comedians were very funny and worked well with the crowd. There were several theme dance parties too, such as 80's night; the ship's website said there would be a 70's party and a 50's party, which didn't happen (somewhat disappointingly), but the dances they had were a lot of fun, with a lot of people up and dancing.
Getting on and off the boat for excursions was also easy; we only waited in line for the first one, and that was because we had an early meeting time for the excursion, so had to be off the ship in the first group.
I really can't say enough good things about this beautiful ship and the excellent staff, and will definitely cruise Celebrity again! Less
We were booked into one of the Celebrity Reflection's Aqual Class Suites, which are larger than traditional balcony rooms and include a wonderful jetted bathtub (!) as well as a shower that has multiple showerheads for a spa-like shower massage experience. The suite included a butler, with whom we were not entirely sure what to do - he offered to help us unpack, which we declined. He also brought us a tray of treats daily, such as hummus and pita chips, fresh fruit, and champagne which he chilled in a bucket.
