  3. Celebrity Reflection
Been with Celebrity several times before. Thus cruise came up at a good price,including drinks package and although we had been to most of the ports before we had always wanted to go to Crete. That was a big influence on our choice. The ship was very good. Good food, good fun. Everything was well organised. Even tenders were not an issue. We had freedom dining which was great. We never waited on a table. When we went to the buffet for breakfast and lunch there were no issues with getting a table. Service in the dining room was excellent. The food at the buffet was very good. Try the pizza! We are not sunbathers so finding a sun bed was not an issue for us but the pool area did look busy and lots of folk took food out. However it didn't bother us. If you like a sun bed be early. I don't think this is peculiar to this ship. We have cruised more than twenty times and it always looks the same no matter what ship or line. The drinks package was great. We didn't up grade to the premium package and the only issue we had was that we could not get a martini at the martini bar. However all spirits were premium. Bombay Saphire gin and Absolute vodka. Wine at dinner was good and we had plenty. Some of the bars can get busy early evening but the guys work hard to serve everyone. A bit of patience required sometimes although some passengers did not seem to have that so occasionally you have to assert yourself. The passenger mix was mainly British , American and quite a few Australians. We met plenty if people and they were all very pleasant. All in all this was a great cruise.

Great Cruise

Cabin Review

Deluxe Ocean View with Verandah
Cabin 1A 8252
Cabin was good. Great balcony. Really large. The only issue we had was that settee was very close to the wardrobe. This blocked the access to one side. We prefer the open type wardrobe as there seems more room for clothes. The suitcases went under the bed no problem. The over the bed cupboards are roomy but not the easiest to access however no real complaints about the cabin.
