Sail Date: Apr 2023
Cabin: Celebrity Suite

This was our third cruise on Celebrity, two on Eclipse and now Reflection. For the 2018 cruise around the British Isles, our last pre-Covid, we had a Sky Suite and for this cruise we had a two-room Celebrity Suite. The benefits of Suite class are outstanding and for us, in our late 70's, mandatory. They include the Premium Drink Package, Premium WiFi, Luminae and Michael's Club, concierge and butler service and guided embarkation and disembarkation. We had dinner in Luminae all but one evening and it was wonderful each time. We had several lunches and they were also terrific. Housekeeping and butler service was top shelf. My wife had a mobility scooter but did not need it much as our location was near the aft elevators, with easy access to Michael's Club on Deck 5 for pre-dinner drinks, and Luminae on Deck 3. I could not believe how well the wi-fi service was, including out in the middle of the Atlantic! My laptop was always on (for work) and the phone/i-pad never lost signal. The phone (Verizon) worked perfectly including face time to the kids in Boston. Due to the fact we had six devices, and my wife needed additional wi-fi for an insulin pump, we opted for two additional Premium wi-fi links to go with the two that came with the suite. That purchase was handled by the concierge in Michael's Club while we had coffee and was funded with the on-board credit that came with the Suite. A small point is worth mentioning. I begin dinner each evening with an Extra Dry Plymouth Gin Martini Cocktail, straight up. The first evening in both Michael's Club and Luminae, it was prepared perfectly and served in a classic v-shaped 4 oz. Martini glass. I mentioned that I really enjoyed the drink in a coupe, but understood if it was not available. The next night and each night thereafter, the perfectly made Martini was served in a coupe, without me even ordering it. And, somehow the word spread to Michael's Club, where the coupe magically appeared the next evening. Doesn't sound like a big deal, but it is. Well done, Celebrity.

Cabin Review

Celebrity Suite

The two-room cabin was outstanding. I could rise early and my wife could sleep in. The only issue was we had a standard Celebrity Suite and getting into the tub/shower was a challenge for my wife. I needed to assist each time. Perhaps we need an accessible stateroom?

Port Reviews


Cadiz off the ship was right there. Difficult for my wife's mobility scooter due to cobblestones, so I walked alone. Visited the Cathedral and did some shopping. Fun.

Cartagena (Spain)

Lovely. Easy access with my wife's mobility scooter. Streets are paved with marble! Fun and easy with no shore excursion needed.

King's Wharf

We simply walked around the port since we spent a week in Bermuda a few years ago. Mobility scooter worked fine.
