My wife and I very much enjoyed our cruise on the Celebrity reflection. Celebrity is a bit of a step up from the other cruises we have done, a little more sophisticated and with very attentive service and excellent food - worth the extra cost for some little luxuries. The Reflection was very big but
we didn't find that to be a problem, and we loved sitting in the stunning Grand Foyer with a drink before dinner to watch the world go by. Dinner one of the nights at Qsine was a highlight, fantastic food and service.
We had an Oceanview stateroom which was very nice, I especially enjoyed the ice we could have delivered each day and the upgraded bedding - bliss! My wife was appreciative of the nice toiletry products which were in the bathroom.
We had never cruised the Mediterranean before and were worried it would be too hot at that time of year, but the ocean breezes certainly helped with that. The cities we saw were incredible, the Greek Islands were beautiful - all in all an amazing experience! We would definitely recommend the Celebrity Reflection and a Med cruise to anyone.
My First Cruise with Celebrity but have cruised in excess of 25 times. I Was looking forward to it very much as I had very good reports about this cruise line. Initially impressions were good the ship was very clean and very modern, the cabin which was a sunset veranda was as expected of high
quality and it delivered with the view that we were looking for, the cabin stewards did a fine job except that were a bit lax about cleaning the balcony which did get a little black soot but nothing to worry about.
The staff in the entire ship were always friendly and the service was exceptional, the classic drinks package had sufficient drinks included to satisfy most drinkers.
The ship however seemed very crowded at times , having been on a few of these super liners this seemed more crowded than usual particularly at dining time which was disappointing until we sorted it out. The select dining (of which we had no choice)was awful with no being able to make a reservation even in the morning and then having to wait up to 30 mins for a table, some people even longer, I think they need to have more people with the set times as it just doesn't work.
Overall the ports were great but the ships excursions were extremely over priced and we booked others on the internet for half the price.
Would definitely try them again but at the right price.
Slightly bigger than her classmates, the Celebrity Reflection is 1,047 feet long and 123 feet wide. Her 16 decks carry more than 3,000 passengers and 1,200 crew at a cruising speed of 24 knots. The Reflection's inaugural cruise took place in October 2012.
Celebrity's upmarket accommodation options are all found on the Celebrity Reflection - in fact, she was the first in the fleet to offer AquaClass Suites, Reflection Suites and Signature Suites. Beyond those, there are options for everyone: verandah staterooms, oceanview staterooms, inside staterooms and some more suites including a penthouse.
14 categories of cabins means you're spoilt for choice. There are 1,532 rooms in total, and all offer fantastic amenities such as tote bags, robes and premium toiletries.
Three pools, the theatre, the game room, the Lawn Club, the spa and gym are just the basics when it comes to daytime activities on the Celebrity Reflection. Organised activities can make your day as busy as you want it to be, with classes, lectures, competitions and workshops falling into the four CelebrityLife categories: Taste, Learn, Revive and Play. You could learn some mixology, play a volleyball match, practice your dance moves or try out a relaxing spa treatment - the choice is yours.
A range of bars including the fabulous Molecular Bar for cocktails and the relaxing Passport bar round out the entertainment in the evenings. Shows and live music will keep everybody happy and busy.
The beautiful main dining room offering both fixed seating and Select dining is called Opus, and is almost too gorgeous to abandon for an evening - but if you want to try out something a little different, the Celebrity Reflection has plenty of options. There's a buffet, a healthy cafe in the Solarium and a grill for casual poolside food.
The innovative Qsine, French-style Murano, Italian steakhouse Tuscan Grill and a few more specialty restaurants make up the for-fee dining spots. These are well worth the cover charge for a special night out.
