We picked this cruise for a 6-night getaway to have some quiet time together right after the holidays. We also wanted to enjoy some sunnier and warmer weather. I booked a suite since we were celebrating a special anniversary. It was our second cruise on Celebrity and our fourth overall. We weren't expecting great entertainment since Celebrity isn't know for it, however, we enjoyed most of the shows and bands on board. They had a great comedian and illusionist, plus an outstanding vocal duo, Valentina and Peter that we loved. The cruise cast did three shows in the auditorium. Two were very enjoyable, but their big theatrical production fell flat with us. The ship's band was very talented and high energy. In the ship's big theater, I noticed invariably that about 20-30% of those in attendance for shows never applauded or showed any appreciation for the performers. I've noticed the same thing on other ships. I think it's really rude to the hard working entertainers on stage not to provide at least polite applause even if you weren't thrilled by the show. The cruise director, Marteen, did an outstanding job keeping us informed. He had a lot of personality and enthusiasm. The silent disco nights were very popular and lots of fun. We ate all of our dinners and several lunches in the Illuminai restaurant that was reserved for those in suites. The food and service there were outstanding. Accordingly, we didn't feel the need to go to any of the specialty restaurants and pay extra for those. Michael's club, which was also reserved for suites, was a good place to go for complimentary drinks and to meet others on the cruise. The wines served there were drinkable, but I get better wine at home for as little as $10 a bottle. They had premium brands of alcohol available which would be a better option than the wine. We did the Salsa, Salsa and Margarita excursion at Cozumel and had the best time ever! You get bottomless margaritas while you learn to make two types of margaritas and six types of salsa. After that, when everyone is feeling tipsy, you get up to learn how to salsa dance - that was pretty funny. We did the special behind the scenes tour of the ship. It was expensive, but interesting. It required a lot of walking, but that was fine with us. The only negative about this tour was in each area of the ship we stopped at, we were briefed by whoever was on duty at the time. Generally, they were non-Americans who spoke with such heavy accents we couldn't understand half of was being said. Our tour guide who was a young Chinese woman who spoke excellent English. I think it would be better if Celebrity trained people like her to give the briefings in all the areas visited. Then the crew is each area could just answer detailed technical questions or embellish the briefings with some personal anecdotes. The daily buffet was adequate. I went there for breakfast some mornings and a couple of lunches. The food was tasty, but not special, and the variety was good. This is all I expect from a buffet. The fitness was large and well equipped. My wife said the exercise classes, however, weren't worth the money as they were too beginner oriented. Getting on and off the ship was a breeze since we got priority treatment as suite customers. Being in a suite really improved our overall experience throughout the cruise. We were a little disappointed with the room service. I ordered oatmeal one morning and they didn't bring anything to put in it like raisins, brown sugar, etc. My wife ordered cereal everyday and twice they didn't bring a bowl to put it in. A couple of days, they left canapés in the room mid-afternoon, which we didn't ask for and didn't want so every in the day. A personal complaint of mine was finding a Gideon Bible in our suite. I asked and was told they are in all the cabins. I believe people of all faiths and beliefs should be treated equally and respected by a company in the hospitality business. Celebrity is making a statement that they prefer Christians over non-Christians by putting Bibles in every cabin. I find that offensive. I expect a lot of Celebrity's customers would be unhappy if a Koran instead of the Bible was placed in their cabins. There is a simple way for Celebrity to deal with this issue. The ship has a library onboard where they can keep copies of purchased or donated religious texts for their customers who want to read one. They had at least one Bible in the library when I looked. Although I enjoyed my cruise overall, in the future I will give my business to a cruise line that is more inclusive and respectful of all its customers, and leaves religious proselytizing off their ship.

Our family just returned from a 6-Day Caribbean sailing on the Reflection. This is our 5th cruise on the Reflection, which is one of my favorite ships. I also made a video tour of the ship, if anyone is interested in more details: https://youtu.be/m-h2WBtvQsI Cabin We had a balcony cabin on Deck 7. Cabin is identical to oceanview cabins except for the balcony. Sofa and trundle bed serve as beds for 3rd/4th passenger in the cabin. Lots of storage space, balcony is good size. Even with 4 in the cabin we never felt too tight. Dining Room: Stunning design of the Opus dining room, very light and airy with lots of table options. We had assigned seating at 6pm. Our servers were amazing! We asked them to have some food ready for the kids as soon as we arrived each night and they were happy to comply. Always brought us extra appetizers or desserts to try. Food is top-notch, lots of choices each night, did not have a bad meal. Oceanview Cafe (Buffet): Very spacious, lots of seating, nice design. Food stations are well designed and separated from each other so there are virtually no lines. Food was just OK. There were lots of choices but they were pretty much the same each day. Now the buffet is open until 1am each night if you need anything late at night. Entertainment: Cruise director Maarten was super funny, one of the best we have ever had. They had a comedian, magic show, some Broadway style-shows and Elysium (Sirque de Soleil type show). I wish there were more game shows, trivia and such, as on past cruises we have had a huge variety of those each day but on this cruise they were a bit lacking. Pool Two pools and 4 hot tubs on the main deck, were never super crowded. We were always able to find seating. Celebrity does a good job with placing the chairs around the pool. Adult pool was also very nice and great option if you do not have kids, since the weather was a bit chilly. Lots of poolside games, entertainment, zumba, etc, if you want activities and music. Specialty restaurants We ate in Qsine, which is a favorite of ours - highly recommended for unique foods you cannot find anywhere. Also, the Porch on Deck 15 offers amazing seafood options, including lobster, for just $25 per person. We loved it and would definitely go back. Kids Club Our son was in the 10-12 year olds and loved all the activities - scavenger hunts, games, Xbox, movies. They had toddler time for kids under 3 each morning but only for 1 hour, which was not enough on sea days as there is not much else for the little ones to do when the weather is cold. Lots of teens on this sailing, so the Teen club was always a fun place to be. Overall, we had a great time! The service, as always on Celebrity, was top-notch. Lots of different bars and entertainment spaces to hang out in. They offer in-cabin babysitting for $19/hour, which is great if you have little ones but still want to go out at night. Embarkation was a breeze, disembarkation got a little crowded around 9am but we managed to get out in less than an hour. Read Less

We wanted to go to Key West, but weather kept us from docking and both other shore tours were cancelled. Never fear, the Celebrity Reflection and her Crew kept us fed, “watered,” and entertained. Met great folks and hard a blast!!! Embarkation and debarkation went great; first time we did self-debarkation...fast! Ship was easy to get around, logically laid out; cabin was great (balcony) and clean. Liked the bed near balcony door, gave us more “living space” with couch next across from vanity. Conceagrie service was good, met all our needs and wants. Take advantage of the morning room service for coffee - we kept forgetting. Only issue, not enough creamer provided for the entire pot of coffee. Ate at Quisine and Lawn Club — both great!! And worth the extra expense. Main Dining room was OK, difficult to get intimate service with such a large crowd. Food was good, service was OK. Overall, excellent trip, would highly recommend Celebrity, The Reflection, and the itinerary (during fall/spring, not winter). Read Less
