Ship Facts: Celebrity Reflection Review (by Cruise Critic!) | Celebrity Reflection Deck Plans
Very good cruise...but much older than expected

The celebrity reflection was our first cruise with Celebrity. We were attracted because of their "modern luxury" marketing and on a friends recommendation. Perhaps because of the itinerary and date, or the following transatlantic crossing the crowd was very old.

Optional dining options were good, especially the lawn club grill and Q-sine - however they didn't compare to the onshore style restaurants they were trying to imitate. Tuscan Grill is a run of the mill italian restaurant and Mirano's is a below average french. Q-sine was good, but not fine dining. The lawn club was our favourite...good atmosphere and great steak...and you get to grill your own and become part of the show. Never set foot in main dining hall. Blu, the special restaurant for the aqua class and suites was a good a la carte option with "healthier", lighter options, but service could be sketchy and slow.

Entertainment was bad...same 8 dancers in everything, same three singers do it all and not very well. The special "Sin City Comedy" was awful, too late in the evening and the tacky burlesque was odd and uncomfortable. The 2 dance shows were entertaining. The two lounge singer acts were not good.

Loved the solarium area of the pool deck - but where is the bar - if you stay in this area, you had to leave to get a drink as waiters were a rarity.

Molecular bar and Martini bar were great with great staff - as the entertainment was lame, we drank to entertain ourselves.

I would do a celebrity solstice class cruise again, but only if we had friends join us...someone to drink with.
