  3. Celebrity Reflection
We travelled with another couple who were experiencing their first celebrity cruise, this was our third. We stayed overnight before the cruise in Rome and had a private transfer to the port. Embarkation was only 15 minutes and we went straight to the buffet restaurant for lunch. There was always plenty of choice of food here for breakfast and lunch. We even ate there two nights to enjoy the lovely Indian curries and Chinese stir fries. Cabins were ready at 1pm and were immaculate. Ours was on deck 9 with a balcony, lovely. Our cabin steward was always smiling and kept the cabin immaculate all cruise. We had a classic drinks package which was perfectly adequate for us with a good choice of wines, beers, spirits and cocktails. Speciality coffees were also included. There was a little hard sell to upgrade to premium, but this only lasted till the next day. We didn't experience any hard sell of the speciality restaurants and didn't use them. We dined in the main dining room on select dining, which worked very well, having booked our dining time on line before we left. We managed to get the same table every night, so we were able to enjoy the same waiters and sommelier every night. They were very efficient and polite. If you wanted more, you only had to ask. We didn't go to any production shows as, after reading reviews on here, we didn't think we would enjoy them. We did see a Freddie Mercury tribute and the Tenors of Rock which were sensational. The house band were very good. There was a silent disco, which we tried and found really entertaining and funny. The ports of call were interesting and we did our own thing in all of them with great ease. Overall this was a fabulous cruise and would recommend Celebrity Reflection.

Excellent Cruise
