Traveling Spain with Friends

Celebrity Reflection Cruise Review by NANA1951

Trip Details
  • Sail Date: Sep 2019
  • Destination: the Western Mediterranean
  • Cabin Type: Ocean View 7

A group of 14 friends (between the ages of 66 and 78) who travel together wanted to see Spain. This cruise visited multiple Spain Ports plus two in France and three in Italy.

Embarkation and disembarkation were both very good.

This ship had the best food and service that we've experienced in all our years of traveling.

The entertainment on this ship was OK in my opinion. We enjoyed the shows with the entire groups performing. I do not care for comedians or solo vocalists so didn't attend those shows. Did enjoy the band's performance.

The ship's shore excursions were OK but the ones we booked privately through Spain Day Tours were much better. The shore excursions through the ship had about 50 people per excursion and most of the guides were not in control of that many people. They did not use individual headsets so it was difficult to hear and/or understand the guide.

The ship's shore excursion to Capri, Sorrento and Pompeii was excellent. Our guide was great. The ship's shore excursion at the Livorno Port "Cinque Terre Drive & Lunch" was also a good one.

Cabin Review

Ocean View 7
Cabin 07 7103

This cabin faces forward over the deck. The slanted dormer type windows allow for extra room. It was a good room and the room steward was excellent. The location was quiet.

Flamenco Show

The Flamenco Show was booked through Spain Day Tours and was right across the road from our hotel Cuatra Naciones. This show was very good.

Villefranche

This tour guide was not good. Group of 50 is too many when the guide doesn't use individual headsets. She had no control over the group and it was very difficult to hear her unless you were walking beside her. Waste of our time and money.

Montecarlo Walking Tour

This tour guide was not good. Group of 50 is too many when the guide doesn't use individual headsets. She had no control over the group and it was very difficult to hear her unless you were walking beside her. Waste of our time and money.

Florence (Livorno)

While this was a large group of 48, there were 3 guides for the bus full. They divided the group up. We traveled by bus, mini vans and train. Great excursion.

Naples

This ship's tour covered all three areas: Capri, Sorrento and Pompeii. Took a boat over to Capri. Excellent Guide. Interesting tour.

Pompeii Walking Tour

Same Guide as Capri. Very good educational tour. Well worth it.
