We chose this cruise because we have done several transatlantics and really enjoyed them. We flew to Rome 2 days early and stayed at the Hotel Diocleziano. We chose this hotel as it is located near Teremini Train Station as we took the train to the port. We had been to Rome several times so we just did our own thing. Really enjoyed outdoor cafes and restaurants. The train to Civitavecchia is about an hour ride and costs about 6 euros. The trains are very frequent almost every hour. You can buy your ticket at a kiosk and then to the track. There is staff to advise the track but then there is no one to help you. Our train was on Track 29 and we had to walk all the way down to Track 24 and then cross over to another track. The signage was lacking and no conductor available at the track. I asked a passenger who told me this was the train to Civiavecchia. Never saw a conductor to collect our ticket. Don't buy first class ticket as there is no one to direct you to those cars. The trains are double deckers so if you have issues with luggage and stairs this isn't a good option. Also, at Civitavecchia the elevator was working so we needed to carry luggage down stairs and then up stairs. Took cab to the ship for 5 euros per person. Embarkation - No issues and you when come on board you are handed sparking wine. Nice touch. Ship is lovely. We had a balcony room on the 6th floor. Plenty of space, the bathroom seemed larger than others we have had. Room attendent was wonderful. Very helpful and accomdating. Dining - I thought the buffet had good variety each day. I saw complaints about this with other reviewers but I didn't find that. We did lunch in the restauant on several days but the menu was quite limited and the food was sometimes cool. Evening dinners were very good. We did one speciality restaurant, the Lawn Grill, and it was excellent. Veal chop was outstanding. Overall, we thought the food was one of the best that we experienced on a cruise. On the 7th floor there is an area called the Hidaway which had a coffee and tea station. It was easy access for us as we were on the 6th floor. Entertainment - The shows that I attended were excellent. They were mostly singers with live orchestra. There were enrichment programs that were informative and enjoyable.There were plenty of activities if you chose to participate. I just relaxed and read on our balcony. Ports Barcelona - we took 4 hour tour of the city thru the cruise line as we had never been to the city before. I wouldn't recomend this as there were too many people on the tour. If you want to go it alone, for 5 euros you can take the shuttle into town or you can take a taxi. The famous church sagrada familia is something to see. You can buy your tickets on line and take a taxi to the venue. Cartegena - lovely small city - we took 4 hour tour but again I think the best sites to see is the Roman Theater and the shopping districts which you can do on your own. Malaga - Took atour of the city with tapas which was a waste of time. The tapas were terrible and I think we could have done this on our own. Tenerife- We took tour to the volcano and really enjoyed it. We went up 7500 feet and it was cloudy, cold and raining so on our way up we couldn't see much but then we to the crater which was magnificent. Fellow passengers - The passengers are older and some are very fral.. They are very well traveled and interesting for the most part. Some we rude and entittled. Loved the martini bar show. Lots of fun watching the bartenders pour 18 martinis at once. Disembarkation- We walked off with our luggage. Easy, no crowds and took cab to airport. All in all it was a great cruise. Only negative, 7 sea days were too much for me. Read Less

This was our second cruise on the Celebrity Reflection but our first Transatlantic crossing. We were in a balcony cabin on Deck 8. The ship itself is already several years old but it could have been brand new; it is very well kept and spotlessly clean. Because it was a 14 night cruise in October, the passengers seemed to be mostly retired, in their 60s and older. There were virtually no children aboard. (That’s not a complaint.) As you might expect on a Celebrity cruise, the crew could not have been friendlier, more helpful or more gracious, whether at the popular Martini Bar or select dining in the Opus restaurant on Deck 4, or the Oceanview Cafe on Deck 14, or the Fitness Center on Deck 12, the places I frequented the most. The service was superb. Our cabin steward was beyond superb. The food was not simply good, it was very good. At many meals it was nothing short of spectacular. Say what you will about Celebrity, you will not leave their ships hungry. Also, in a very generous gesture, and as a reflection (so to speak) of Celebrity’s appreciation for returning customers like us, as Captain’s Club members with Elite status Celebrity bought us drinks every night until 7:30 PM (except for the evening of embarkation), so my bar bill was very low. In the very subjective category of theatrical entertainment, I do not give Celebrity high marks. My wife and her girlfriend went to all the performances and were not terribly impressed. I went to three shows featuring comedians; only two were funny. We had dined in most of the specialty for-fee restaurants before, but they are now outrageously expensive and in my opinion not worth the price, certainly not when compared to the plentiful and multiple very high quality “for-free” dining venues. At the beginning of the cruise the ship stopped in the Spanish ports of Barcelona, Cartagena and Malaga. We were blessed with beautiful weather and had booked half-day tours through Celebrity which we found informative and fairly priced with guides who were interesting and easy to understand. It rained during our final stop in Tenerife and Celebrity was kind enough to refund a portion of the supposedly scenic excursion cost. The weather during the crossing was generally good with only two instances of rough seas. The temperatures were cool and comfortable until we neared the Florida heat the last two days of the cruise. Because there are plenty of sea days on a crossing, my wife, the Queen of Mah Jongg, was able to find a group of girls and played with them every afternoon. I occupied myself with a good book and time in the gym, but the cruise director did a fine job of organizing all kinds of activities for passengers with other interests. The bottom line is that we loved this cruise so much that while on board we booked another crossing for next year, leaving from Barcelona exactly a year to the day after this cruise ended in Ft. Lauderdale. We even reserved the same cabin, and asked Celebrity to simply let us keep our clothes in our closet and drawers so packing for next year will be easier. That’s a joke, by the way, but the rest of my review is serious and sincere. Read Less

We were on the Celebrity Reflection 10 day Italy & Greece Tour.We had a Stateroom with Balcony on the 9th Deck. We found nearly everything about the cruise to be really good. The service, from ALL staff was friendly and courteous. They all give you the impression they ENJOY doing their job. The standard of food & service in the Opus Restaurant was superb. We did not bother eating in any of the Speciality Restaurants (despite the strong sales pressures) The choice and standard of food in the Oceanview Restaurant was brilliant. We ate there everyday (apart from 1) for breakfast & lunch. Bewildering choice of eggs etc. Beware attempting just to have a salad for lunch - you are tempted with Indian, Chinese, English,American,Pizzas etc. All of good quality. Our room was spacious, clean & tidy. We had breakfast served in the room 1 day. Lovely to sit on the balcony eating scrambled eggs.... Shame about the tea being cold. We tried room service for morning tea but the water was always luke warm. Good shows, good variety of artists. Embarkation and disembarkation - well organised. Did not use Celebrity Excursions - preferred to make our own arrangements. Only 1 gripe - we loved sitting on deck watching the ship sail in/out port. Spoilt by the large number of people smoking. Would I use Celebrity again? - definitely! Read Less
