As usual, Celebrity delivered excellent food and service on our recent Baltic cruise. Embarkation and disembarkation were smooth and efficient. Our balcony cabin was larger on the Reflection than on past Celebrity ships. The layout was great and the extra space was appreciated. The entertainment was good, but not spectacular. We have become comfortable with the fact that if you want big productions, try Celebrity's sister line - Royal Caribbean. Rob Lewis, a Phil Collins tribute act, was great. The service in the Opus restaurant was exceptional - as was the food. I can't imagine what our waiters and sommelier could have done any better. We did have dinner in the Tuscan Grille one evening and it was a disappointment. Three of us ordered steaks. Two were too rare and one was overdone. By the time we got one steak redone, everything was cold. We paid $45 each and wished we had eaten in the Opus dining room. The ship is fabulous. Although we were with 3,300 other guests, the ship never felt crowded. There are enough small areas (library, Hideaway, etc.) that we could always find some quiet places when we desired. We toured Berlin, Helsinki, St. Petersburg, Tallinn and Stockholm with TJ Travel Tours. All were great experiences. Our guide in St. Petersburg was Natasha and she worked very hard for two 10-hour days. Her knowledge of Russian history was exceptional. She was old enough to have lived under Soviet rule, so she also had an interesting perspective on the czars, the Soviets and on life after the fall of the Soviet Union. We toured Copenhagen on a Celebrity tour, since TJ was not able to form a group there. The guide was knowledgeable and we got a good feel for the city. Overall, it was a great trip. We were extremely lucky with the weather. We traveled with a couple who had just gotten their first passports and this was their first cruise. We warned them that the Reflection experience will probably spoil them for future cruises. Read Less

Let me start by saying that it's 20 years since our last cruise and after reading reviews and itineraries for the different cruise lines, my husband and I decided on Celebrity. We also chose Amsterdam as the departure port because we didn't want to fly for various reasons. The check-in and embarkation could not have been better. No problems whatsoever. At this point I think it's only fair to say that as for security, it was first class. Obviously because of the times we live in it had to be much stricter than our last cruise but as a result, we felt very safe on board. A big thank you to celebrity for that. As we were Concierge class it included a welcome aboard lunch in the Opus Restaurant. However, as were given an embarkation time of 1 o'clock, by the time we got to the restaurant in question we found another couple trying to get in but had been told it closed a few minutes earlier. All four of us explained our situation and finally, we were allowed in. Not a good start to our cruise as we believe the restaurant should have been informed of the latest time for concierge guests to board and be directed there for lunch. Thankfully it was the only incident on embarkation day. Our Concierge Aldin Buendia, was very helpful and kind. As we both have food allergies and after experiencing some difficulties during an "open seating" for dinner in the Opus Restaurant the day we were docked in Warnemunde, she immediately dealt with our complaints and everything was sorted out. From then on, we had the same table (142) all the time with our trusted waiters Yanin, Tatitiana and Sergei to take care of us. A big thank you to all of you. However, like other reviews we did feel the menu in this restaurant could have been a lot better. We had no problems with the quality of the food, but the selection/description left a lot to be desired. Specialty Restaurants - we didn't dine in any as we believe guests shouldn't have to pay extra for things like that. It seems cruise lines are now putting profit before guests which we think is a step in the wrong direction. Spa - had my hair done twice by Anderson for the two Chic Evenings and found him excellent. Gave me some very helpful advice all of which I have since acted upon. Thank you! Photo Gallery - excellent. As my husband doesn't like having his picture taken, we have very few over the last number of years. However, as we we were celebrating a few things, we decided to have some taken around the ship and on good advice by the staff took the "photo package" for $250. Best value ever! Evening entertainment Reflection Theatre - we enjoyed most nights. The best ones for us were The Overtures Stares of St Petersburg Folkloric Group and The FlyRights. We felt Celebrity's own production shows we not great and the costumes let it down. It's as if they wanted to do the whole thing on a shoestring. My experience of shows on a cruise were spectacular with props and costumes giving it a real Broadway feel. These were nothing like it unfortunately. As for the places visited, see our reviews of each port. Overall, we enjoyed the cruise very much and would certainly recommend Celebrity and this itinerary without hesitation. One final piece of advice: if you experience any problems whatsoever do not hesitate to speak to the person in charge. Read Less

Celebrity Line is a top notch cruise experience. From the time one embarks the ship to the time you disembark things go smoothly. The dining venues are wonderful, and although we were Aqua class and ate in Blu most nights, I wouldn't hesitate to eat in other restaurants. Qsine was a special treat! The buffet was always well stocked and the quality was excellent. Mast Grill hamburgers can't be beaten! The staff on Celebrity Reflection are wonderful and attend to your every need...extra hangers - no problem; more chocolates at night - they will be there. Nothing was too much. My only criticism would be for the one tour that we booked with Celebrity. The guide was uninformed about our destination (Sigtuna), and did not provide us with a quality excursion. She was well informed about the second part of the day (Stockholm), but managed to run ahead of the group in her panic to get back to the bus. While we thoroughly enjoyed the actual places that day, we were extremely disappointed in the guide. Celebrity needs to ensure that the companies that are contracted to do tours are informed. All tours that we booked off the ship were excellent. I would expect the same of Celebrity. Regardless of the above criticism, this was a dream trip, and Celebrity made that happen. Thank you.
