We used to cruise a lot with NCL, but over the past few years, we switched over to Celebrity. We've been on this ship several times. We love everything about it! We love the atmosphere and the food/restaurants! Abraham from Qsine is the best! If you want atmosphere and small bites served uniquely..this is the place to go! We always seem to over order! The French restaurant is amazing! The staff was wonderful. Feels very luxurious. Love that they have table side preparation for certain entrees. Food was delicious and I'm not a fan of French food usually. Sushi on 5 is nice for lunch. Obsessed with the Porch for sea food lunch. Lawn club grille is great. Love the party they do where you can help cook! Food is super yummy. Love the fact that there is grass! They recently installed a large movie screen outdoors. Saw the staff setting up for a movie night which included appetizers and blankets and cushions on the lawn. Bummed that you had to pay for it. You should have just had to sign up for it. My husband smokes cigars, and they are always friendly when it comes to allowing cigar smokers tp smoke outside with other smokers...unlike NCL. Bar staff is always friendly. We made friends with Putu who was amazing! Enjoyed hanging out in the wine bar as well. Staff there was great and always remembered our wine order! Normally the photographers are a little annoying, but AJ and the staff were great. Made it fun! The solarium is a nice place to take a nap before dinner! Our favorite ship ever, we will be back!

We tend to like the lines that have under 500 passengers but live in Florida, so cruising on a larger boat is the best way to go on a Caribbean cruise in the winter. Celebrity's SkySuites give us the small ship feeling with all the amenities of a much larger boat. Traveling to Miami took us longer than going to Port Everglades in Fort Lauderdale, but there was no annoying security check to get into the port and parking was a breeze. We dropped our luggage off and parked right across from the ship. At $20 a day, it is not inexpensive but very convenient. Check in was a breeze and our room was ready for us as it was about 1:30 when we boarded. We had lunch at Luminae which we thoroughly enjoyed. The food is outstanding and the service was really good, although not as good as on the Summit. We don't even bother with specialty restaurants anymore. We had a Classic Drink Package which covered almost all liquors and some nice wines, as well as cappuccino and other specialty coffees. We had four port days and Luminae was not open for lunch on those days. We found the hand tossed pizza at the buffet to be much improved and now rivals that on Princess. Food at the buffet was okay, but we never went hungry, and I enjoyed the different ethnic dishes, especially the curries on the one day we ate there. The Reflection is a new ship and it is very well appointed without being too glitzy. Public rooms were all very nice. The ship is small enough that every part is easily accessible. I only wish that the evening entertainment would have been better. There was a popular comedian appearing at 10:30 PM, but it was in a small venue, and all of the seats were occupied well before 10:00. The comedian on the first night of the cruise was so bad that we didn't rush to get to see the next one. The singing and dancing shows were just okay. We have been to Grand Cayman and Cozumel many times before, so we only took a brief walk off of the ship. The port at Falmouth, Jamaica is a reconstructed little mini town owned by RCCL. It consists of souvenir stands and a few restaurants for those who didn't eat enough on the ship. We ventured outside the gates into the town of Falmouth. It was market day, and although we didn't feel terribly unsafe, there was little to buy, and it was a little bit crazy walking in the street with cars behind us. Later we found out that one lady's cell phone was snatched from her backpack, and were glad we decided to go back to the ship. I didn't expect to spend much time on RCCL's private island Labadee in Haiti, but have to say it was really nice, and I could have spent another day there. The water was beautiful and RCCL provided lounge chairs and floats, and there was a nice barbeque lunch with a full bar. Disembarkation was also very easy as I don't believe there were any other ships in port. We were told to leave our room at 8:00, but left closer to 8:30 and waited by the pool until 9:10, our assigned time to pick up our luggage. All in all, we spent a relaxing 7 days, eating, drinking and reading and after exactly one week, I am already ready for another Celebrity cruise. Read Less

My DH and I have just completed 2 seven night back to back cruises on this ship. It is not the first time we have done B to Bs, but it will be the last. Not only is the menu in the MDR repeated, but 80% of the entertainment in the theatre is repeated too. Also, because the ship has to return to Miami at the end of each cruise, we didn't get far south enough to get the chance of better weather. 14 night cruises for us from now on!!! That said, apart from the shocking weather on the first leg, the cruise was most enjoyable. We are Elite members so benefit from many bonuses which are appreciated. We were invited to stand on the heli-pad for the sail in to San Juan. Fun, if a little windy! The ship is beautiful. We have sailed on all the Solstice class ships and this one is the newest. We had a balcony cabin on deck 6 and were not bothered by the lifeboats. They are at floor level. The food in the MDR was hit and miss but mainly good, but the desserts everywhere on the ship all looked lovely but were very disappointing - better for my waistline! It is very difficult to find a quiet spot at night with music blaring out on deck 3. Serious bridge players couldn't possibly use the Games Room. The entertainment was the usual fare. The production shows were not great - seen it, seen it, seen it. One of the acts The Tenors of Rock, got a deserved standing ovation - but as another reviewer commented, they only managed 45 minutes - were they rushing off somewhere!! The Cruise Director Alexander Yepremian was one of the best we have come across. He has a great singing voice - maybe he could use it a bit more! There seemed to be more small pockets of entertainment than I've seen before the leader of the house band did a spot in Sky lounge one night. An English girl with a nice voice and the 2 girl singers from the production shows also did a short show in the Sky lounge - Enjoyable. However, we greatly miss the acappella groups - bring them back!!! The Captain, whose last cruise it was on this ship, was almost invisible. Obviously not a people person, but he did his job and mastered the ship well - especially in the rough seas of the first week. The speciality restaurants are now ridiculously expensive. I love the Murano, but $100 for 2 on top of what we have already paid is outrageous. Sometimes we ate dinner in the Ocean View on deck 14. The selection of food was incredible including freshly cooked fish, chicken or steak to order. Nice if you didn't want the formality of the Opus Restaurant. On this subject, Celebrity have dropped the "Formal" nights it's now called "Evening Chic" where they ask you to dress a little more "dressy". However, they have relaxed other rules and men are now allowed into the restaurant dressed in shorts. I do think that is a step too far and has really lowered the tone. Pretty soon they'll be allowing them in wearing swimming shorts. How can they ask us to be "dressy" and let men wear shorts to dinner. If you want to wear shorts, eat in the casual cafe. Not what you'd expect from Celebrity. All in all, as usual, a most enjoyable trip. The staff are helpful and polite and for a little while, you can pretend you are living in a little bubble of paradise. Read Less

We just returned from 7 days. Miami, at sea, San Juan,st Thomas, st Maarten and 2 days at sea. The ship was beautiful and extremely clean. Plenty of on board activities and excellent entertainment. Embarkation and disembarkation were flawless and each took less than 30 minutes. Few children were on board but they appeared to be well taken care of and entertained. Service in the dining room, we had open seating, was sporadic. Some nights courses were delivered in an even and continuous flow. Other nights we seemed to wait forever between courses. We had to ask multiple times for ice tea. Shore excursion on st Maarten was well below Celebrity expectations and a full refund was offered. Hopefully that excursion will be removed from the menu. If you see sight see Margot and beach as a notice please avoid it and pick another option. Read Less
