We just returned from a week aboard Celebrity's Reflection where we celebrated our 25th wedding anniversary and can't wait to take another cruise with Celebrity's Solstice Class. The ship is absolutely beautiful, very modern and very clean. The artwork throughout the public rooms is impressive. Our cabin was 8243 on deck 8 and we found it to be quiet and less rocky than other decks aboard other ships we have sailed on.
The two most impressive features about the Reflection are the service, which we found to be outstanding and the quality of the food and beverages - First Class all the way! We have sailed before, both with Celebrity as well as other cruise lines and this ship knocks it out of the park.
We met Captain Bouzakis at the Captain's Club Cocktail party and found him to be not only very professional but very warm and friendly. He has without a doubt the best personality of any cruise captain we have ever met. So kudos to Celebrity for chosing Captain Bouzakis for their newest star in Celebrity's fleet.
As we mentioned before, we found the food on this ship to be exceptional. Executive Chef Darran Ridley and his staff deserve high marks for the quality and execution of so many delicious meals. If you are a "foodie" this is the ship for you! With so many selections we found it hard to make a choice but often deferred to the advice of our head waiter and were never disappointed.
Our cabin stewards; Elton and Melvin were outstanding too! They made sure our cabin was spotless and seemed to be able to anticipate everything we could possibly need without being asked to do so. The cabin was a perfect size for the two of us and the design of both the cabin and bath are good examples of great design in a small space.
We were even sent a bottle of Champagne and a tray of chocolate covered strawberries to celebrate our anniversary! A very lovely touch making this cruise our most memorable!
