I’ve been a bit concerned when reading some recent reviews on the Reflection so I was pleasantly surprised during this, my fourth time on this particular ship. I really cannot see what anyone has to complain about! It was my 23rd X cruise so I’ve had plenty of experiences to compare this with! The food quality, volume and selections were as good as usual. The Captain’s Club hostess (Luann) and the CD (Simon) were both efficient and entertaining. The Senior Officers were present on a few occasions and perfectly friendly. Guest Relations and Shore Excursions operated as normal. The check-in procedure was the fastest ever and debarkation went smoothly and ahead of schedule. Our waiter (Michelle) and stateroom attendant (Patricio) were excellent. Particularly good on this cruise were the bar and wait staff in the Sky Lounge during the 5-7 pm Elite and above “cocktail time”. Those were definitely the best appetizers I’ve had at these events! Even the entertainment was better than usual with the exception of a truly awful and embarrassing hypnotist show! Oh dear! My only complaint was that for the second cruise in a row X had arbitrarily changed my 6:00 pm early dining to 5:30 pm! That’s ridiculous (I’m not a 90 year old American living in Florida!!). I had no choice but to switch to late (8:30 pm) dining since selective was “full”. Anyway, I like set dining and having the same waiter and table mates! Read Less

We have always liked Celebrity. But, the Celebrity Reflection cruise last week from Ireland to the fjords of Norway disappointed us in several ways. First the pros: The shows each night were spectacular...the best we have seen on a cruise. The food in all the dining venues was excellent. Staying in the Aqua Class suite allowed us a tour of the galley and we felt so comfortable witnessing how clean and organized and focused on food safety they were. The waiters in the dining room were very efficient and kind. Our room steward got the flu, unfortunately, and we didn't see him again after the first few days, but the room was cleaned daily by different people. The cons: 6-months before the cruise, we realized that the two major shore excursions we booked the cruise to see (the major fjords) were already full. They did not open extra excursions and Norway does not have many private tours (the ones we did find were also already booked because the ship excursions were booked, or we were unable to book them because the ship offered such short time in several ports). We did luck out and find some city bus tours, but couldn't understand why Celebrity would take a ship full of thousands of people to such remote ports without offering sufficient things to do. We had bad weather (very windy) most of the time and four of us (in two separate cabins) were bothered intermittently with some kind of knocking or creaking in the walls when the ship would move with the wind. Our friends had someone come up to their cabin to see if they could find the cause, but it was to no avail. (Decks 9 and 11). All passengers had to get off the ship by 0730 the morning of disembarkation. This caused us to have to spend 6 hours at the airport before our flight was to leave back to U.S. If you want to actually "see" the fjords, we suggest that you try another cruise line or check the availability of the shore excursions before booking.
