  3. Celebrity Reflection
We are fairly new to cruising (cruised once before). Celebrity Reflection is a beautiful ship and we really enjoyed our experience. The communications, activities, service, verandah cabin (deck 6), dining, entertainment, disembarkation were top notch. We had select dining and really enjoyed being able to choose our own dining times. The reservation staff worked hard to accommodate us when we needed to adjust a couple of our dining reservations. One small negative is that the servers were not consistent in delivering their service. Some paid attention to detail such as helping us into our chairs, offering more wine, others did not. The entertainment was very good, especially the acrobatic performers and the live bands. The stewards Dominador and Christian were excellent. They made us feel very comfortable. Thank you!

Awesome 1st Visit to Europe

Cabin Review

Deluxe Ocean View with Verandah (partially obstructed view)
Cabin 2C 6288
The cabin was very comfortable and clean and well looked after by the stewards. There is ample room for hanging clothes, however, very few drawers for clothes not requiring to be hung up. I would suggest bringing collapsible bins that you could place in the bottom of the closet.

  • Acropolis
    Our guide "Nancy" provided a good pace and gave us plenty of time to explore the Acropolis.

    The guide was very knowledgeable. "Nancy" provided us with so much information during our walk through the museum which really brought the exhibits to life!

  • Land Rover Safari
    This was by far one of the best excursions I have ever experienced! We drove up 5400 feet into the mountains and the views were spectacular. You get to see Crete in its purest form, where people live simply and undisturbed by modern society. Our guide, Michael, was awesome - he related to us his life growing up in Crete, what a typical Greek family is like and we had many laughs as he related his experiences. Well done!

  • House of the Virgin Mary
    I would have been happy skipping this visit. You walk through the house, light a candle if you want and that's it. Some found this a very spiritual experience, I did not.

  • Mykonos
    We enjoyed walking around the town, which is a maze of cobblestone streets, sampling beer and food. A nice break from the long excursion the day before.

  • Pompeii Walking Tour
    We wanted our last excursion to be not quite as long as the previous ones had been and this tour fit the bill. We had a very knowledgeable guide who provided us with just the right pace.

  • Beach
    This excursion was a nice break from the prior days' fast paced and long walking excursions. It was nice to have the hotel facilities for access to washrooms, wifi, lounges and umbrellas, which were included.

  • Island Tour
    The tour was enjoyable but we felt a bit rushed, especially when we arrived at Oia. I recommend that they start with Oia as it is the most beautiful area of the island.
