We were in Sky Suite 2119, a very nice sized suite on the 12th deck, forward on the port side, with a larger balcony, just a few doorways from the spa, so quiet. Jo, our butler, was very responsive and helpful. Brought us lovely canapés when we requested them, and served us a lovely dinner in our suite. Raj, our suite attendant always provided a clean room and extra towels as needed, with a smile. Luminae - The Food... Amuse bouche were occasionally kind of boring (goat cheese stuffed in a large puff pastry cracker?), but would then surprise (a deviled egg with salmon caviar). Lean into the caviar, perhaps with some fresh potato crisps and sour cream? The octopus starter was EXCELLENT! Lobster salad had an odor, so I avoided it; the waiter offered me shrimp cocktail instead, and although small, the shrimp were good. Pepper tuna was a tad too peppery. Venison was overdone, and as a result, slightly dry. Had Opus grilled chicken breast one night with mashed potatoes and veggies - good comfort food, but the broccolini tasted fishy. The rack of pork was sliced, so not REALLY a rack. French onion soup was bland and oily, but escargot were quite good. The buttered lobster with champagne sauce was excellent, and my husband loved the duck as well. :) The chocolate sphere dessert was entertaining AND fabulously delicious! Zouihair, the maitre d’ was attentive and very helpful, and clearly a good leader, as his team were well trained. Sanjeev was a very good waiter always quick with a funny comment to make us laugh. Allan was a PHENOMENAL sommelier and suggested excellent pairings within the wine package we selected; the Beringers Founders Estate Cabernet, Sincerely Malbec, and the Robert Mondavi Napa Merlot we’re right in our “sweet spot”, bold, chewy, and dry. One night my husband selected a Malbec that was quite nice. Allan approved. ;) Murano was excellent, start to finish, with the mild exception of the lamb being slightly undercooked. Zac was an excellent waiter and the gran marnier soufflé was FABULOUS. Blu was good as well, just not our thing. Michael’s Club, part of our suite experience, was a great getaway. Riz, one of the staff, was an excellent bartender (great lemon drops!) and Alex and Alessandra were AWESOME concierges, getting us into the restaurants we wanted. Canyon Ranch Spa - Elizabeth’s manicure was perfectly done. My husband said my nails have never looked so good! Wakasa, who studied massage in Japan for 10 years, was my masseuse. Her hot stone massage was the best that I have EVER had and I’ve had PLENTY. On the whole, this was one of our better cruises, with great excursions (snorkeling in Bonaire!), good internet (paid, but shared), and good island locations (Antigua, Barbados, St. Lucia, Grenada, Aruba, Curaçao, Bonaire). The shows were ok, but not the BEST that we’ve seen. One comic (Rich Aronovich) was quite funny, and the local cast (singers, dancers, musicians) were quite talented. The App to determine activities and scheduled appointments is EXCELLENT, but needs to integrate with the spa. Read Less

14 days of gorgeous sunny warm weather in a January is ideal. Cruise guests were mostly old. Many guests were repeat guests who liked longer cruises. I had a good time on the Reflection. As one of Celebrity’s newest ships, it looked fresh and well kept. Our cabin was in good shape. Furniture was comfortable. Our cabin steward was new. He was friendly. However, we had to ask for several basic items that were not already in the cabin. Shower caps,smooth soap, robes, ice, pen, paper, laundry bags. Towels were thin and not very absorbent. Asked for extra towels. The public areas were also clean and nicely appointed. Pool area had lots of chaises and areas in the shade. Never had to go far to find an empty chaise. The buffet area was often crowded. There were many times when I had to wait to find an empty table. Buffet seating was not adequate. Food choices were good. However, there were often lines of people waiting to be served. Pool grill was good. The Main Dining Room was better than the buffet. Service was excellent. The food was good, not great. Menus are old and worn. Choices haven’t changed in years. It would be nice if Celebrity would freshen up their menus and offer new dishes. We also ate dinner one night at the Tuscan Grill. I really enjoyed the filet. Loved the Tea at Cafe Al Bacio. Entertainment was good. The musical groups were excellent. Music soup was my favorite. Evening shows were good. The Library was sadly lacking books. There is no longer a daily News sheet. Guest services said that they don’t print it anymore because people check news on the web. That only works on ships that include free WiFi for all guests. We enjoyed time in the ports, met lots of nice people, and had a good time. Read Less

14 days had Aruba two full days. Murano (11 times) provided a great dining experience. Less children. They did have several dogs on board. One Small dog barked and barked.. Barked uncontrollable. Setting on balcony reading and barking was disturbing. Celebrity should have put dog and owner off the ship. That is actually in the write up of how they handle that situation, but I guess they did not want the press. Entertainment is subpar to Royal Caribbean. I cruise 110 days a year. This is now my 140th cruise and I have been on 22 Celebrity cruises and 77 Royal Caribbean cruises. This past year I cruised 7 days on the MSC Seaside, 8 days on the Carnival Vista, 35 on Celebrity and62 on Royal Caribbean, so I know the differences and direction cruise lines are headed to make more $$, and how they are achieving that. I have 6 more cruises booked this year, and will book at least 6 more this year. I am not booking as much in advance because of the non-refundable deposits. Read Less

We went with 2 couples who have done this exact cruise many years in a row. We have only done 1 cruise prior to this and did not really enjoy it, however it was a Carnival down to Mexico. That cruise was a druken fest, everyone was smashed and rude. We booked this cruise thru a travel agent and felt comfortable with the price and amenities offered. We opted for the gratuities package and the drink package based on our friends suggestions. When we boarded the ship, we were pestered to upgrade our drink package and it was never ending, very bothersome. We loved our cabin, the best part of the entire cruise and our cabin attendant too. The first ports of call were the West Indies and very "third world". Antigua, Barbados, Genada and St. Lucia. We did not get a good vibe in any of them and felt unsafe for the most part. I would not return to any of them. The ABC Islands were great and no problem with the panhandlers or the pesky taxi drivers. The people here seem thankful for you and your business unlike the first ports. We had a good vibe and felt sad, would return and will but not by Cruise. More to follow on that. We had a number of "issues" on/off the ship. First, the first days at sea, everyone is milling about and seats were difficult to find. When we went down for cocktail hour, they had 1 waiter and 1 bartender for 50+ people. Everyone complained. After the third wight it good somewhat better. Second, we were stranded at a snorkel excursion for 1 1/2 hours waiting for pickup. They gave us an apology and a discount on another excursion only after all people on the excursion signed a petition and turn did in. Third, I went to book the next excursion and the desk had 15 people in line. I waited 45 minutes. Finally the Concierge came and apologized for the problem and told us they had an issue while in port that caused staffing problems?! I bailed out of line and went to Guest relations(no line) and 5 people working. Told the girl the problem and she booked my excursion in minutes. I asked why the Concierge was not bright enough to send some of the people here, she replied I don't know, he should have! I went back to the line and told everyone to go to Guest relations, they did! Lastly, we had a chemical incident outside our cabin. We were walking to our stateroom about 1 in the afternoon and smelled a very strong odor. Another couple also smelled it, it seemed to be within 10 rooms of ours but strongest at our room. I called the front desk and reported it, ask for an immediate update. Waited 10 minutes and nothing. Went down to the desk, a girl acted as if there was no call there. She called round and found out it was someone ordered to remove and clean stickers from the Fire Doors, using Paint thinner! I asked if they could stop, she said no. Told she would be done in about 20 minutes and the odor should be one in an hour. Went back to the room, now the girl is outside our room with a bottle of thinner, no gloves, no eye wear and no respirator. Using a rag to apply it. I asked her to stop because my eyes were watering and the fumes were affecting my breathing. Said she could not stop and suggested I leave the area. Got my wife and went to the pool for 2 hours. Returned and the odor was worse. Went back to the desk and asked for a Manager. He finally came out about 10 minutes later and apologized. Now he is offering to move us to the other end of the ship. He cannot give me any explanation of WHY it was so important to do this while people are on board! We went to dinner all the while left the sliding door open to our cabin. Came back to the cabin by 11pm, still there but a bit better. Slept in the room and awoke with headaches of course. I have reported this to corporate and they gave me a $200 on board credit for another Cruise, I think this is outrageous and will now report the incident to the Coast Guard and OSHA. Read Less

Loved the 14 night Caribbean itinerary and was sorry to see Celebrity discontinue it. The Reflection is a beautiful ship with one of the friendliest, hard working crews I’ve seen in 21 cruises. I don’t think I’ve ever sailed on a cleaner ship. The crew is constantly working to keep it that way despite the slovenly habits of some passengers. (Yes, you’re on vacation but it wouldn’t kill you to throw away a can or other trash.) Food was fantastic. We ate at all the specialty restaurants except Sushi on 5 and enjoyed the food and service. The view from the Tuscan Grill is great. Arrive early enough to get a table by the aft windows. You might even get the treat of watching dolphins riding the wake. We wake up early so usually don’t make it to shows. We did, however really enjoy several of the musical acts. The Starlight Duo and Danny Smart were our favorites. If there was something of a disappointment it was the bar tenders at The Pool and Mast Bars. Usually ships put some of their more outgoing peopl in those locations. They were polite and efficient, just not very fun. I suppose everyone looks for different things in their cruise experience. Ours is pool time, relaxation, good food and friendly service. The Celebrity Reflection certainly delivered that and more. Read Less

As we book our winter getaway in January we have learned from previous cruises that it's vital we choose an itinerary that goes down to the Southern Caribbean - the East/West itineraries in January may not be hot enough. This January 4th 2019 Reflection was perfect - the weather was hot starting in Fort Lauderdale and continued for every island. Embarkation in Fort Lauderdale was easy - we were in Terminal #25 that is the new Celebrity terminal. We like this itinerary as it lets you relax immediately once you board with 2 sea days, then 5 ports, then a sea day, then 3 ports (Aruba Bonaire Curacao) and 2 days at sea to relax for the journey home. Celebrity is our favourite cruise line and Reflection is my favourite ship in the fleet. Celebrity provides a level of "modern luxury" that can't be matched with other cruise lines while still providing the casual atmosphere of cruising (not the country club feel of luxury lines). The entertainment on Celebrity has increased dramatically the past 2 years which makes me happy. The crew from the Captain on down to every person cleaning were amazing - always friendly, always professional and always willing to fix any issues. We always choose Celebrity Select Dinning and we make reservations in advance - we were a group of 6 so this was necessary. We arrived @ 6:30 and our table for 6 was always ready for us. Some may want more flexibility - not knowing what time they will eat everyday but that flexibility may mean you wait in line. All the food was amazing including Oceanview, MDR, Tuscan, Murano and our new favourite Lawn Grill. The food was great in Le Petit Chef but I wasn't a fan of the 3D concept - it doesn't enable tablemates to talk (must be quiet) and I felt pushed out at the end with the "goodbye" animation. This was a great cruise. I strongly recommend any 14-night itinerary - I wish Celebrity would offer more 14-night cruises. Read Less

Not a good ship for sunbathers. Not enough lounge chairs and the ones they do have are packed so tightly together you have to climb onto them. People remove them to get a little space and stack them up, compounding the problem. Seams to be smokers all around the decks making people go away from the pool activity area in order to breathe freely. On this ship they took away a lot of deck space and the Corning Glass Works to put in two specialty restaurants and a grass area with several cabanas. Can't put a chair on the grass and they don't show movies until late at night. Cabin # 6157 was directly above the designated smoking area making our veranda useless as my wife has COPD. This ship is more suited to a Med. cruise. Smokers everywhere, will try to avoid this ship in the future. Waitstaff was awful most of the 14 nights. One night we had to ask the waiter if we can order after waiting 30 minutes, another we didn't get coffee or our tea until after we consumed our dessert and on other nights the table wasn't set and had to ask for silverware. I could write 150 words on our dining room experience. Bottom line: go to the buffet! Read Less

The crew was so unfriendly and truly looked miserable. We traveled with our 3 children (10,8 and 2), we went on this same boat 4 years ago and had a horrible time year. The boat is not maintained. All games on deck 9 are broken. The kids club is awful. My child said she didn’t feel well they left her sitting in the sun on the sports court for an hour with no water. Told she couldn’t go to the bathroom since she didn’t have permission to sign herself out. Was told children were not allowed in speciality restaurants. I had to get permission for each restaurant. The people on this boat were the rudest old nasty people I have ever seen. On several occasions as my family got on the elevator these old people had comments. One morning some had the nerve to say quick close the door no kids allowed. My son was pushed in the elevator by one of these old nuts. It truly is a cruise line for the 75+. I would never recommend celebrity to anyone with children. I could go on and on! The cabana service on the two sea days was a joke. They have one bartender for the ten cabanas. Don’t order food through him. It took over 1.5 hours. We ended up walking downstairs and bringing up food for the kids. In the morning I would take the stroller to the ocean view cafe and I would have two dishes and the children. Not once was I offered help. When I asked for a straw I was told I had to go to the bar. So I would have to leave three children sitting at the table to go walk to a crowded bar and wait on line for a straw. The service sucked for what you pay. There were no kids activities. Also, the milk was warm in the buffet and I mentioned it to a guy in a suit. The temp on the fridge said 39... told me it was fine. Next morning fridge was set at 35. They can get someone real sick with warm milk. No regard from the boat. My kids were bored all week and were so happy to head home today. Unless your old and crotchety .. stay away from celebrity!

Positives: 1) Fabulous ship – absolutely gorgeous, very comfortable, in pristine condition, and very well designed. I was so impressed with the cabins, pool areas, fitness area (great equipment and I used it every day), buffet set-up, theaters, shops, specialty restaurants, promenade, Nook, game room, library and more. 2) Fabulous specialty restaurants. All three we went to had great food and service. 3) Nice passengers. We encountered no obnoxious drunks, no one tried to steal my lounge chair at the pool (although there were always plenty even on this very full cruise), everyone in the elevators and somewhat narrow corridors were nice and polite, no one fought for position in line or over a table at the buffet, etc. 4) The standard non-alcoholic drink selection was reasonable. 5) The Qsine specialty restaurant deserves special recognition. It’s amazing. 6) The entertainers who came on board at one port and then performed before leaving at the next port were very good. 7) Did a great job with tendering at Grand Cayman where there is no ship pier. I watched the way Holland America handled tendering for its ship and felt sorry for their passengers who were crammed into relatively small and slow life boats that were difficult to climb into and out of. 8) Even though the ship was full for this New Year’s sailing, mostly there were no lines and it was easy to get around the ship. There were no lines at the bars and plenty of waiters were available to serve drinks by the pool. Showing up at the main dining room without a reservation was never a problem for us. Boarding and disembarking was orderly and expeditious. Good seats were always available in the theater (except for the late-night adult comedy show). While the positives greatly outweighed the negatives, there nevertheless were some negatives. Negatives: 1) Food (especially the entree’s) in the main dining room was disappointing. I’m not exaggerating when I say my local cafeteria serves food of at least equal quality. By the end of the cruise, I compensated by ordering three starters and two entrees each meal and then ate the more palatable from each group. 2) Not many smiles and some bruskness from wait staff at the main dining room and buffet. But there were notable exceptions. 3) More up-selling throughout the cruise than I wanted. I hear it’s even worse on many other cruise lines but if Celebrity wants to position itself as a luxury line, then its effort to “Sell, Sell, Sell” is inconsistent with that. 4) The dedicated live-aboard entertainment was nothing special. Also, the costumes tended to be racy and even weird. 5) An exception to Celebrity’s generally excellent handling of the crowd on-board was the persistent long line at guest relations. Also, while the staff was friendly, it frequently was not very helpful. 6) The pools were too cold and the hot tubs were always packed 7) Seems like the Disney and Carnival ships who docked in port at the same time as the Celebrity Reflection got priority when it came to docking location. 8) Celebrity’s repeat customer program is called the Captains Club. These privileges should work on all Royal Caribbean lines – but mostly don’t. 9) There is not enough room in the group fitness classroom. Also, charging for group fitness classes seems cheap to me. 10) Even though the ship was full, there were not that many teenagers on-board. Certainly, there were not as many as the Celebrity booking agent said we could expect on a New Year’s cruise. Also, the teen program is way too limited. 11) All the best reservation times for the specialty restaurants were taken well before boarding. This was true despite the fact that there were always many empty tables in each of the three excellent specialty restaurants we tried. Read Less

We are first time cruisers and selected this cruise upon the advice of our travel agent, McCabe Travel in Mclean, VA. The ship itself was well maintained — clean, efficient, well-organized, friendly and helpful staff. However, the focus on efficiency came at the expense of quality- in the food, entertainment and off-shore excursions. We booked two Aqua Class rooms - one for us and one for our two children, ages 20 and 16 and sailed out of Ft. Lauderdale, FLA from December 28, 2018 to January 4, 2018. The first night, we ate at the main dining room - Opus - and the food was good given the size of the crowd. It wasn’t cuisine level but it was flavorful, on-time, well-cooked and the servers were very friendly — acknowledging everyone in our party by name. The second night we ate at the Porch Grille and had a similar experience. Third night - Sushi on 5 — good food and polite, attentive servers. We never got to really know anyone or connect with them - a loss in my view - but we had a positive experience none-the-less. After that, we ate at the OceanView Cafe and the Blu restaurant. Same experience — food that was good enough and servers that were polite and friendly - just about what expected for a ship of this size. There was a wide variety of food options — from traditional English/European fare (bangers and mash), to Indian dinner to Asian to gluten-free. Plenty of different American options as well. The biggest disappointment was the desserts. All the sugar from the sweets must have been used for the drinks which seemed entirely devoid of any alcohol whatsoever. If you are a sweet-lover, just go for the ice cream. Believe it or not, as delicious as all the pastries looked, they was utterly, completely, entirely without any taste whatsoever. On the upside, the ship attempts to create unique and fun experiences at all of its restaurants and all different types of clients. It doesn’t fail in achieving this goal. If you enjoy dressing up, you can have a wonderful time in the Opus dining room, Ensemble lounge, martini bar, etc. If you want to relax and enjoy a more Caribbean vibe, you can go to the Porch, Lawn Grille or the OceanView Cafe and have a more relaxed, low-key experience. If you like game shows, concerts and comedy acts - they have those too but don’t expect anything marvelous. Adequate is what you are more likely to get. The cocktails are quite sugary and weak (we had a Classic drinks package) as were the entertainment and shore excursions. If you enjoy a nice cocktail in the evening, your best bet is to go to the martini lounge. The poolside and restaurant cocktails are quite poor quality. We booked several excursions and I would strongly suggest people book their own off-shore experiences. If you go through Celebrity, you will pay a premium for a very mediocre experience. We were very disappointed by Costa Maya - a faux Mayan village created in the jungle especially for cruise ship patrons. The beach had been overtaken by seaweed, and, because of the high wind that day, all water actitivies had been cancelled. You got one ticket for a watery drink when it would have been more enjoyable to stay onboard and the ship to yourselves. The shops were nice but the prices were twice what you would pay anywhere else. We enjoyed the ATV rides in Cozumel, but it didn’t last very long and we were back at the ship by noon. In Grand Cayman, the 7-mile beach excursion had been oversold and a lot of people were upset about it. The staff on site were not expecting such a large group and they did not have enough chairs + umbrellas for all guests. Plus, the “transportation” - a 1950’s era school bus that everyone nicknamed the “prison bus” - got stuck in the parking lot on the way out which added 30 minutes to an already bad day, Still, we enjoyed cruising and would do it again but perhaps would consider a different cruise line than Celebrity. We would book our own excursions and would consider looking into bringing our own wine/alcohol on board. The Classic drink package and the execursions really weren’t worth the price. The entertainment, other than ABBA Night, was pretty mediocre as well. Read Less

It would be nice if there was another outdoor pool for only adults. No nightclub, but the silent disco rocked!Cabin was wonderful. Clean and loved having the verandah. Food was pretty good. Service was excellent.Did not go on this ship for the ports. Mexico is not my favorite, but I do like Grand Caymen. However, it is a pain not to have a port to directly dock and get off on island. Have taken Celebrity prior and the experience was wonderful and plan on taking it again. It was nice not to have a ton of children on board. For a big ship, it did not feel crowded. Would definitely recommend to friends. Even the bar service was wonderful and quick. On other lines, it can be a hastle. Overall, great experience. Read Less

My partner and I sailed on the Reflection over the Christmas holiday, 2018. This was my second time on Celebrity, but my 18th cruise (have done Princess the most, two in RCL and one on Holland). Observations and tips: 1) This is the sexiest ship I’ve ever sailed on. Atrium extends from the main floor to the top of the ship, so natural light pours through the center of the ship. Decor is chic and the ship is spotlessly clean. Even public restrooms are always perfect. 2) Food quality is generally good to excellent. Murano (specialty restaurant) is exceptional. Blu (dining that comes with AquaClass) is very good (along the lines of country club dining or food at a very nice wedding). The buffet is phenomenal for a buffet - pizzas have perfect crusts, salad bar ingredients are fresh, fajitas available every day are amazing, and many other items (Indian, roasted turkey, spatzle, etc.) were really good. The only letdown was the Main Dining Room. I admit to a sample of one (we went for lunch one day), but it was on par with hospital or airplane food. Totally unacceptable. That being said, given how good the buffet is (which you’d expect to be a step down) it is fully possible that we both ordered the wrong things and/or it was an off day. 3) For is, the alcohol package was worth it. You can often get the classic package on promotion. You can upgrade to premium onboard for $14 per person per day. 4) Martinis at the martini bar are the highlight. Go around 4:15-4:30 to get seats for their “show”. They are entertaining. You’ll need to premium package to get drinks included here (most are $12). 5) Wine lists are excellent, and your sommelier will do wine pairings by course if you ask. If you ask, tip them. They deserve more. 6) If you’re debating between interior, oceanview, and veranda, the veranda is worth it if your budget affords. Interior cabins can increase seasickness if you are prone. If you have a veranda you will spend more time in your stateroom, enjoying privacy, shade, fresh air, etc. 7) Pay attention to what’s above, below, beside, and across from you for cabin placement. Mid-ship tends to be more expensive because old people don’t like to walk far to restaurants and entertainment, but cabins aren’t any better. You might think twice about a cabin below a kid’s club or a gym, beside a bar, near the elevator (not desirable unless you’re in a wheelchair), etc. 8) I booked AquaClass and cannot comment on whether it was worth it. In my extensive experience at Blu and one experience in the Main Dining Room, I’d say the upcharge was worth it. That being said, you can buy specialty dining packages and I think you could probably eat in a specialty restaurant almost every night of the cruise for a similar cost. 9) Murano is worth it. The passion fruit souflee is the best dessert I’ve ever eaten. 10) Peeking into cabins I couldn’t tell any difference between AquaClass, Concierge Class, or a regular veranda. Hope this helps!

What better way to enjoy the Christmas holiday than on a cruise. This was our first holiday cruise and it was fun to be with others in the holiday spirit.. it had been a while since we have sailed on Celebrity and we were not disappointed. The ship was clean and well maintained which is hard when doing seven day Caribbean sailings. The crew was super friendly although not as polished as some crew. But we had a wonderful time and looking forward to our next sailing. Eddy the cruise director did a great job and his talks about his experiences over the years were well done. The production shows are a must see for everyone. The individual shows such as comedians, singers, bands, etc were also very good. Hard to find any faults with the entertainment. Our Aqua class cabin was quiet, clean comfortable. Clive, the cabin attendant was attentive and always knew when to get in and clean before we got back. The iced tea in the afternoon was appreciated and delicious. On Christmas morning we had a gingerbread village that was set up for the holiday. A beautiful display for pictures. Later in the day the officers gave a concert of Christmas carols which was wonderful and a nice surprise. Definitely got even the grinches into the holiday spirit. Overall a great week and a fun way to spend a holiday. This will not be our last holiday cruise. Read Less

My daughter, son-in-law and two grandchildren took me on this marvelous cruise! From the moment I stepped onto the ship, the experience of a life-time began! The ship was spectacular in every way! The cruise director (Eddy) was always entertaining the passengers with wonderful shows in the 'Reflections Theater', Trivia Quizzes throughout the voyage, the Ocean View Cafe was amazing, with delicious choices of food, not only American, but from other countries as well! It was a wonderful Buffet experience for breakfast, lunch, dinner, as well as snacking throughout the day! The Opus Dining Room was a lovely experience with a courteous staff and not only delicious food, but the presentation of the food was done eloquently! In fact, the entire staff aboard this ship went above and beyond to make sure each and every guest was completely satisfied! The activities were plentiful and the 'Fun Factory' and Kids (Camp at Sea) kept my grand kids occupied and having a blast, as well as safe when not accompanied by their parents and yours truly (Grandma). The Lawn Club Grill featured a 'cook-out' experience with many BBQ favorites, delicious as well. The kids got a 'hands-on' lesson on Pizza Making. The Coffee Bar offered, not only the best coffee/tea drinks, but pastries that were beautifully created and so delicious as well! There were displays of Art, beautiful decks and pools, gift shops, activities, jogging track on the 15th deck, a library, 'hideaway' places for privacy and many more features, And, I had the pleasure of watching the Cruise Chefs put together the most amazing Christmas display I have ever seen! I really had a hard time disembarking! I WILL BE BACK!!! Read Less

Just completed a 2 week trip to the Caribbean The ship is very impressive with great staff Itinerary was good including port visits to Antigua, Barbados, St Lucia, Grenada and the ABC Islands The entertainment was second to none with great shows each night and plenty of live music in venues around the ship One slight disappointment was that once leaving the main restaurant there was very few places to sit and continue the interaction with other guests you had meet during dinner, unlike most other ships the atrium area was a little disjointed with limited seating The food selection in the main dining room and buffet area was very extensive with no complaints from anyone we could see, and for us Brits very hot water for our tea A good selection of speciality restaurants are available but slightly more expensive than most other ships, we found that staff would offer discounts most nights which brought the price down by around 10% There appeared to be 3 different drinks packages available:- Standard, Classic & Premium, we had the Classic package which allowed us any drink up to $9 in price, however Vitamin water in the buffet priced at $4.5 was excluded for some reason. In the Martini bar situated within the atrium area all cocktail started at $12 which was a little strange as most people appeared to have the Classic package, all this meant was that the staff used different spirits in your drink I think Several people mentioned that at key times such as pre dinner or show time there was a lack of bar staff and not all the bars opened which was a little disappointing as on several evening we had arranged to meet friends for drinks before dinner and could not find bar or waiter staff Would we cruise with Celebrity again? Yes Read Less

5th time on Celebrity and again we had a great time. We used all the fitness facilities and the Persian Garden- highly recommend. We ate mostly in the Opus dining room for bfast and dinner and absolutely have no complaints. We ate in the Spa Cafe for a light lunch and it was perfect. We tried the Petit Chef (specialty-$110 a couple) experience and found it to be the worst of our dinners on ship. The animation was cute but the quality of food fell below average. We loved the silent disco and danced for 2 hrs each time they had it! What a great workout that was! Disclaimer: we are not your average cruiser, we cruise once a year only in Nov and Dec to check out the ports so that if we like them we can come back properly by air. Ports: St. Martin- did a 6 hr excursion with Sualiga Destinations- would not recommend. Stuck up- rude Captain- Anthony, ride from hell, nothing to see. Lied to a friend of ours who is 65 years old with bad back. Her back was absolutely bruised!!! Dishonest and most overpriced boat ride I have ever been on and that is coming from someone who visited 60 countries and owns a boat! San Juan- absolutely beautiful, vibrant old town. Walked to the La Factoria- where Despasito was filmed and then to Taberna De Lupulo. Joined a street salsa party- no tourists only Latin people. Had a blast and will definately come back via air and rent a car for 2 weeks. Antigua- took a snorkeling excursion through the ship with Wadadli Cats (3 hrs)- this was just awesome! Fun crew, friendly, hospitable and just normal people!!! Paradise reef was great for snorkeling- just go away from the crowd and follow the reef, if you are a strong swimmer you will be able to see a lot! Stopped by a pristine beach, too. Drinks and sandwiches were provided. I highly recommend this one!!! Read Less

We'er local, well traveled middle aged professionals (46 & 55). This was our 5th cruise in 8 years. However honest, I wish my review was more positive. The good stuff first: Our stateroom was wonderful. Sizable, functional, comfy, quite and even pretty. Our stateroom attendant was excellent. All food we ate was delicious. Regardless if it came from an included food outlet or at an uncharged restaurant; variety and quality was surprisingly good. Ship was spotless and well maintained. Never say any trash and always saw people cleaning. Areas of disappointment: The terminal/boarding experience was a nightmare. Little structure and lack of any communication. We were concierge class and directed twice to the wrong line. Waited over an hour before their computers went down. Once physical boarding started it was a free for all. No priority boarding by cabin class or even wheel chairs. Restrooms out of order in terminal too... With the exception of the buffet; we had service issues at all food outlets. Poor and/or no wine stuart service in the main dinning room, the Italian or french restaurant. Repeatedly charged wrong or not charged at all for classic package beverages. Had to ask for soy sauce at Sushi on 5? 20 minute wait for a turkey burger at the Mast Grill? Waving someone down for refills, condiments, etc. Our concierge never contacted us until the last day via a phone call? I voiced some concerns with the cruise. He offered to send a bottle of wine to the stateroom. A bottle of white wine arrived room temperature with no glasses? Many interior public areas, restaurants, bars, etc, were to warm/hot. Air conditioning didn't; seem to be properly working all the time? Gym filled with old equipment. Equipment designed for TV but didn't work. Nor was there any TV monitors to watch? Boring days at sea. Very little activities for adults. Nightly entertainment was low budget, very few sets or special effects. Costumes looked old and not fitted. Compared to Royal Caribbean and Princess just plain embarrassingly bad. At night planned dance parties and bar areas filled with kids? Few adult areas anywhere. The Celebrity App is a complete waist! Dose not refresh when opened. Wrong and/or missing information on daily activities. Different information provided to Apple and Android devises? AT&T Cellular at sea only worked about 40% of the time. I purchased a special package thru AT&T that was expensive. Was told because Celebrity is partnered with AT&T my phone would work and it didn't most of the time... Again old/lack of new technology. On-board retail was week both in product and sales service. Walked into Tiffany repeatedly wearing Tiffany and no one ever acknowledged us. Logo/souvenir ship's store was poorly merchandised with cheap/close-out stuff and very little logo-ed clothing? In conclusion; we will be putting our vacation funds and time towards other cruise lines. Read Less

Family Christmas together. First cruise for my husband and I, but Grandma and my brother's family had both cruised several times before. Embarkation was dismal - standing in line for 3 hours facing armed security guards, with no explanation given until after we finally boarded. (The explanation eventually given was that the 30-mph winds were too high to safely deploy the gangplank. I think Celebrity needs a stronger gangplank.) Debarkation also much slower than expected: from on-line research, we though we would be able to just walk off since we were carrying our bags, but there was a huge lineup and it took about 45 minutes to get off the ship and another half hour to get through customs. Once on the ship, things improved a lot! We had a terrific cabin steward and good dining experiences in the main dining room. We were doing "anytime" dining and ended up never needing to make a reservation - there was only one night when we had to wait longer than 5 minutes. Excellent gym facilities, although very busy. Bought one Pilates class and it was excellent, although pricey. The ship is beautiful and well maintained, and although full there were always places to sit and relax. We had 3 cabins in a row and had the dividers removed between the verandahs, so had some good quality family time together out there. It would have been nice to have some useful shops on board e.g. cruisewear, last-minute Christmas gifts. Instead it was pretty much all diamonds and watches. Hard to imagine they do a good business. The internet packages were ridiculously expensive, so we went without for a week, which was kind of refreshing. A "classic" beverage package came with our booking, and that turned out to be just right for us - we paid the difference when we occasionally wanted a more expensive glass of wine or cocktail. Time in ports was too short. There was only time to hop off for 3-4 hours at each stop. We did manage to get quite a lot out of those 3-4 hours, at least in San Juan and Antigua, but it was a bit hectic. If I were cruising again I would look for longer times in port, and port days that are more spread out instead of bunched together. Overall the cruise itself was a comfortable, enjoyable, and expensive experience. We may try it again sometime... Read Less

From standing for 3/12 hours in terminal or outside in weather to embark to the EXTREMELY long distance walk to disembark the cruise was disappointing. For a Holiday Cruise it was not very decorated. Had a balcony room with no bathrobes or toiletries. The cabin had poor storage. The cabin service was excellent as was all the service on the ship. The food in dining room was mediocre. My opinion is that there are so many specialty restaurants now, wanting you to spend more $, that the dining food has been dumbed down.The buffet food was generally tasteless, but an abundance of choices.Entertainment was alright, nothing special. For Christmas Eve there was a service that was pathetic. I don't know if the problem is the ship or this is the way Celebrity now operates. The walk from the ship to land was very, very long in St. Martin. There should be some type of transportation for seniors without having to get wheelchairs, which is what we will have to have available on next cruise Read Less

I loved the Itenerary. All my favorite islands. The ship is gorgeous. Very tasteful and not gaudy. Service in main dining room was outstanding. Try to get Frankie and Ketut. Deck 4, Select dining. The specialty restaurants were very good. Love the lawn grill, Murano, Tuscan Grille and of course Q'sine. The chateaubriand is incredible. Don’t miss it. Our room , C2, was nice and stewards were wonderful as well as breakfast in the room. Concierge was never helpful or even available much. Captains club hostess could not handle anything nor could Guest Relations. These need improvements or empowerment. Service in the bars before dinner is very slow, just not enough waiters. Better be prepared for a wait. That’s the only reason for 4 stars instead of five. I think this is my new favorite S class ship, even better than Equinox. My next cruise is on the Edge in March.

This was my 38th cruise with Celebrity - and first time aboard the Celebrity Reflection. Right off the bat, I noticed that the staff were really friendly and seemed happy - a "reflection" I believe of the great leadership of the Captain. The menus to my knowledge are the same I believe on the Solstice ships but the food on this cruise was the best I have ever experienced. The chefs and their staffs are really competent and love their jobs - they are also really friendly with the guests. I was really impressed, and rate them A++++. We had the best waiter ever - Perfecto is his name and trust me, he is perfect and did everything he could to make our dining experience the best possible. The ship is really clean - cleanest I have seen of all the Solstice ships I have cruised on - and the staff around the pool, lead by Summer, work very hard and were a great success. The ports of call were mixed. Grenada was terrible, so was Antigua. Aruba, Bonaire and Curacao are exceptional ports. Barbados is nothing to write home about. When we were on the cruise a friend was on the Silhouette at the same time during a shore excursion in Dominica experienced a gun battle - and it was real, not an act. Scary port!!! Now the not so good part. The entertainment overall was poor. Eddy was the cruise director, and quite honestly, was missing in action for the first 9 days of the cruise. Samantha Smith was back and again shouted her performance. The Celebrity Singers were mediocre at best and had the weakest vocal abilities I have ever seen on a Celebrity ship. Alysse Brant and Jessie Hamilton were top notch - the rest was yawn - boring. It also appeared that the entertainment was last minute - Eddy, where were you????? With the exception of the last production, the others were pointless, had no story lines and were just dumb. The Celebrity Activities Staff also need to be counselled. They could not wait to get out of their activities - especially the female american calling Bingo around the pool. When the boss (Eddy) seems disinterested, so does everyone else. House Band Inc were loud, and quite honestly a pain in the butt. Worst house band I have ever listened to aboard Celebrity. The Entertainment Section of that ship require a complete overhaul - time for a refit, pardon the analogies. If you do not care about the entertainment, then this cruise is for you. Celebrity need to wake up - competition is getting stiff and people care about on board entertainment. Read Less

I am a 45 yo German guy and I've been cruising since 2001. After about 40 cruises with different cruise lines (Celebrity, Royal Caribbean, Costa, MSC, NCL, Cunrard) I think I know what I am talking about. Celebrity has been my first and favorite cruise line so far. During the first years (2001-2008) the experience was outstanding: Excellent food, great pool parties with big fruit buffets, baked alaska parade in the main dining room, Buffet Magnifique, theme parties nearly every night, great party bands at the pool. Later they skipped the more expensive events like the big midnight buffet or the fruit buffet (I can understand that due to waste off food, but these big WOW-events made cruising so special!). Now they've even skipped the Baked Alaska Parade. On Celebrity you've always been treated like a familiy member - no matter how much you've paid for your cabin. Now it hurts and makes me angry to see that all those times are gone. Well ... we all know that cruise lines are cutting back service and try to make as much money out of every single guest as possible. The really bad thing is: On Celebrity Cruises they make you feel like a second class guest if you resist getting ripped off! That has nothing to do with vacation. Now some details: I needed a vacation and decided to go by myself on a 14-N-Caribbean-Cruise on Celebrity Reflection out of Fort Lauderdale. I loved the itinerary because of all the beautiful beaches. Embarkation: Being an Elite Captains Club member I used the priority line for Select and Elite members. Big mistake, because most guests on this cruise have been Elite or higher! There were just 5 or 6 counters for our line (and all disabled people were led by your line and taken to our counters, too) while the line for non-priority guests had more than 10 counters. Well, we found out too late ... and waited about an hour in our priority line. Cabin: The cabin is a big plus. While colors are quite boring, there's a lot of space. The cabin attendant was excellent. He worked hard and did an amazing job. Entertainment: I liked the shows and the guest entertainers. Celebrity still has its own live orchestra on stage - I really appreciate that. The production shows were just ok to me, because I am not a big fan of acrobats. I prefer great singers, dancers and songs that touch my heart. So I liked some shows more and some less. Still the quality was really high! Activity Program: This was just poor. Many trivias spread all over the day and evening. Most other activities were sales events. They tried to milk you like a cow: bleach your teeth, “art” auctions (many silly copies of paintings you will find on all other cruise lines), future cruise sales presentations, port shopping guide presentations, shop-on-board-special-sales, Martini tastings …. If you’re not willing to spend a lot of extra money bring a nice book or you’ll get bored! Be aware that on longer cruises right before Christmas the crowd is really old. I usually enjoyed the mix on previous cruises, but here was no serious mix. That’s still not a big problem. I just blame Celebrity for adjusting all the activity and music program to people being at least 80yo. @Celebrity: even those people still know how to party and enjoy themselves if you give them the opportunity! There was no real party band that rocked any party or played at the pool while we left the Caribbean ports. Instead they had a DJ at all the featured parties at night. One night they had the ABBA mania. What a big event: The DJ played ABBA songs and the crowd stood around the grand foyer (spread on 3 decks) and sang along the lyrics which had been shown on a screen. Sorry, but that’s just poor – at least for a Premium cruise line. Where’s a band with great singers that rock the party? Usually at 11:30 pm all public venues on the ship were deserted. In the Sky Lounge (late night disco) you still found around 12-15 guests every night. The other 2985 obviously went to bed because they were either too old or just bored! This was my FIRST cruise I felt bored – and usually went to bed, too – despite the CLASSIC drink package which I will discuss next! CLASSIC DRINK PACKAGE – check it out before you pay for it: I prebooked the classic drink package (drinks up to 9 USD are included) for around 700 USD. My first experience: I gladly checked the Bar menus. Every bar has its own featured drinks.The bad thing: Before they sell you a drink package they should tell you that ALL the featured drinks are around 11 USD or higher (you can get them when you pay the price difference)! Later I found out that I could find a standard selection of included drinks on the last pages of the bar menus. After a couple of days I got bored of that limited choice, too. Don’t get me wrong - I would have been willing to pay the extra dollars if I didn’t have had the following experience: On the first night I went to the WORLD CLASS BAR to join the Solo Travelers gathering. Quite confident I went to the bar to get a prosecco for 9 USD (which was supposed to be included in my package). The barman told me that at this bar ONLY PREMIUM DRINKS are served. Wow, I was on a Premium Line and had to pay extra (after having paid 700,- USD) to get a drink at a bar where the ship scheduled a gathering for solo travelers? I felt like a second class guest and decided to leave without a drink. At the other bar I asked for Prosecco with some Kir. Well, I was told that they had to charge an extra dollar for that drink. For a dish of sugar sirup? I refused and stuck with my prosecco. Feeling second class continues in the main dining room: The appetizers were mostly nice, but the main dishes have just been excellent at the 3 gala nights. Only at those nights the food reminded me of the good old times when I started cruising. All other nights the main dishes were quite poor. One night the selection was meatballs, spaghetti pomodoro, schnitzels with potato salad and 2 other dishes I don’t remember. The taste was ok, but would you expect that choice on a PREMIUM LINE? Well, my comment was countered by the staff: go to the specialty restaurants and pay an extra fee (up to 55 USD) – there you will get Premium food! Hm … haven’t I already paid a cruise on a Premium Line? Ok, if you book an Aqua Class Cabin or a Suite you will probably get Premium food in the restaurants that are reserved just for those guests. I don’t think that I am willing to find that out any more. My conclusion: YOU HAVE TO PAY EXTRA FOR MOST SERVICES/FOOD/DRINKS THAT ARE SUPPOSED TO BE PREMIUM. Otherwise you will be treated like a second class guest. Nothing special happens on the ship at all. One thing I want to make clear: All the staff on the ship worked really hard and was absolutely friendly. I would never blame them for any negative experience. The company’s policies are the reason for not returning to ships that made me feel home several years ago. Read Less

Getting on/off the ship was pretty smooth. Our room was fabulous as was our stateroom attendant. The entertainment was top notch and the cruise director as well. The live music was also great, especially the band 'Music Soup' and the string duo. The ship is beautiful, well maintained and clean with the exception of the public bathrooms at peak times. The itinerary was great and we had smooth sailing throughout. With the exception of the Martini Bar, all the bar staff were below par. The work inefficiently and not as a team. I sat through an entire set of 45 min. in the Sky Lounge and the Ensemble Lounge without anybody coming by and asking for service. To get a drink at lunch in the Oceanview Café is challenge as well. The ATM only spits out $ 50 bills and guests relations was not in a position to provide change. I'm sure in cooperation with the casino, this could be accomodated. The big 'rose' sculpture in the Foyer is in the wrong place when you want to dance. We ate at Murano, Sushi on 5 and the Porch - all outstanding food and service. Worth the extra money. The food in main dining room was tired and uninspired as was the room service food. The Food in the Oceanview Café was actually much better since you can have any meat grilled. The service we had in the main dining room was below standard with the notable exception of the Asst. waiter. The sommelier was pretty useless and had a massive chip on his shoulder. We know they can do better and would definitly go again. Read Less

This trip gives you the best ports of southern carribean which can only be seen on more than a week.The food was excellent every night and the seafood in the specialty restaurant Porch was outstanding.Martini Bar was a happening every night.It is apparent that more guests are staying on the ship in many ports which means there are many repeat cruises on Celebrity.The perks for repeat cruisers are the best of the main line cruise lines.The action in the main foyer brings the largest crowds and most participation.Anytime dining appears to be the most popular and needs to be addressed by the ship to speed up the prime times.The cabin stewards are outstanding and will do everything to make your cruise enjoyable.All officers are most friendly and greet you at every encounter .The food in the buffet line excellent and the variety covers every desire.Would like them to bring back the newspaper in the morning and heard this complaint from several cruisers.Embarcation has certainly improved over the last year.Celebrity is on the right track to being number one once again.

The ship was beautiful and the Reflection has become our favorite ship.The feautures we specially liked were: the walking track is not on the pool deck, the rear outdoor seating area was larger than other Solstice Class ships, the Sunset Bar area had lots of seating, the Martini Bar was a lot of fun, the staff was very friendly and the ship was beautifully decorated for Christmas. Our dining experience was wonderful. The Oceanview was crowded at times but we always found a table with little difficulty. We did the Tuscan Grill, Qsine and the Lawn Grille. The Tuscan had very good food and the service was good. The Qsine was great fun. We shared a table with another couple which made it even more fun. Great food in good portions. The Lawn Grille was great...wonderful service with amazing food. It did seem as though most of the entertainment was good but we have seen better. I'm sure the time of year had something to do with that. We didn't particpate in many activities. The service couldn't have been better in our opinion. The staff was all friendly and smiling, always willing to help. We have been to all the ports before so there were no surprises there. We took 3 ship excursions and they were handled well. Embarkation was the best we ever had. For disembarkation, we did express walk off and were among the first off so it went well for us. The internet was frustrating. It would frequently not be available or would disconnect our session in the middle of the session. The Internet Cafe staff did their best to help us and it did work better in the cafe. Read Less
