  3. Celebrity Reflection
After 12-15 cruises on various lines, we tried a Celebrity Cruise as a nicer ship from the Royal Caribbean ships. While scheduled for a makeover next year, the ship really needs it. cabins were worn and tired and in need of some better housekeeping. My biggest complaint was the entertainment. Having been so impressed on other ships, especially on Royal Caribbean, we were looking forward to the shows and other entertainment on this ship. The website is so intriguing with a lot of variety and options. The 2 major shows were adequate, nothing special, but the rest was just awful. Excited to hear a Neil Diamond tribute singer, either he was drunk or unprepared or something else. It was a joke, with audience members making comments during and after the show. In fact it was the talk of the entire ship with the late show already hearing the comments from the earlier show. I cant believe that the cruise director allowed this show to go on. The website also shows pop up shows in the atrium that looked fun- none occurred. I could continue but let me summarize that the entertainment was far below expectations and a major let down. They also need to train the dining room staff on how to manage reservations, especially if you have a large group. Otherwise, expect to sit in the back corner of the dining room. I would not recommend this ship at this date.

Disappointing
