This was our third transatlantic crossing, our tenth cruise in our five years of cruising together and our fifth cruise on Celebrity and it was, perhaps, the best yet. Just about everyone seemed at the top of their game. Everything cannot be perfect but almost all of this was with a couple of exceptions and they are noted below.
Some people complained about embarkation and I suspect those are the folk who are likely to complain about everything but for us it was a breeze. It took less than an hour from our taxi drop off to being in our cabin - very efficient and very easy.
Unlike the miserable disembarkation in Ft Lauderdale which seemed to take forever with long walks, long lines and lots of congestion creating some tense situations - not the way you'd like to end a wonderful trip. This was perhaps not Celebrity's fault - the ground staff in Terminal 25 seemed very unprepared, unlike the Reflection's own staff - but it was a bummer nevertheless.
