  3. Celebrity Reflection
We had chosen this trip to fit in with our cruise on Celebrity Edge, so it was about timing rather than itinerary. We were lucky enough to have sailed this itinerary before, so knew what to expect. Sailing from the new Celebrity terminal at Port Everglades was really wonderful, and so straightforward, We were in a Sky Suite, so were able to take advantage of the dedicated drop off area, and had access to the Retreat Lounge in the terminal, which is beautiful, but boarding was so quick that we didn't have time to take advantage of it! The ship is great, and familiar. The dark wood and some of the decor is starting to feel a little old fashioned, particularly in light of what is happening with the makeover the fleet is having, but is none the less modern, with a great crew. Our cabin was an S1 Sky suite on the back corner which had ample space, a large balcony, and a bath. The balcony also had sun a lot of the time which was a real benefit. We ate mainly in Luminae, which as ever, was wonderful. Great service, the whole team were friendly and efficient, my only slight niggle was that the menu is fairly limited. We spent one night in Tuscan Grill, and one in Murano, both of which were great, but it is probably time that the menus were given a makeover. The Martini bar was an absolute highlight, great service, and a great atmosphere. The itinerary is not great, but I think this is a horses for courses thing - I'm not a fan of excursions, but like to be able to get off an wonder around the area near the ship, which you couldn't really do in a lot of these ports, but we knew this before sailing, so it wasn't an issue, we stayed on board for a lot of them. For all getting on the ship was a breeze, getting off the ship was another matter! We were in a different terminal, and to say it was somewhat chaotic would be an understatement. Long lines and no one really seems to know what was happening. Again, we were really luck that one of the perks of our cabin was priority disembarkation - the question really were huge.

Great cruise aboard a beautiful ship
