  • Destination: the Eastern Mediterranean
  • Cabin Type: Deluxe Ocean View with Verandah 1A

We sailed on the 11 night Italy Greece Turkey cruise. The reflection was a really beautiful ship and spotlessly clean, Our cabin 7202, was amazing, with lots of room and excellent service from the stateroom attendant. The dining was brilliant, the choice of food amazing and the quality, second to none. The waiting staff were superb and nothing was too much trouble for them. Evening entertainment was quite low key compared to other ships, however the quality was fantastic and just what we wanted.

The port of Santorini, although a beautiful place, was a disaster, the ship was anchored at 2pm and all guests had to get tender boats. Our number was 45 so we didn't get off the ship until 3.30pm, Once on shore there were just too many people bad we had to be back on the ship for 5.30 so we didn't see much of the island/port - not great.

The port of Athens was much better, and Celebrity should be complimented on the way they dealt with guests getting on and off the ship it was brilliant and we were always welcomed back with a smile and a cold towel - lovely.

Mykonos - stunning - courtesy bus into the town provided by Celebrity.

Kusdasi - awful place, i would never return here!!

Bodrum - ok, not much to do there and the Turkish people just wont leave you alone, especially when they know you are from the cruise ship.

Chania, Crete - lovely stop, would return here.

Naples - we took the celebrity excursion and visited Pompeii and Sorrento, it was so worth it - what a fab day and very well organised. - highly recommended

A couple of negatives - there were far too many unsupervised children on board. This ship is definitely not geared towards children, which was why we picked it. The parents did not care that they were amusing themselves by riding up and down in the lifts and in the hideaway on floor 7, they dismantled the chairs and were rolling around in them. I had to get out of bed one night to ask them to stop running up and down the corridors.

Another issue was the pool and the lack of sunbeds. The outdoor pool is woefully small for the number of guests and was always rammed. There were no sunbeds on quieter decks which we would have preferred.

Overall, a brilliant holiday, which if not for the issues with the youngsters I would have rated excellent.
