Celebrity Reflection

August 2014 - Celebrity Reflection to Europe - Mediterranean

Great cruise

Ship is clean.  Stateroom was superb as were the attendants.

Quality of food was very good if not totally inspired.  Entertainment was OK, not great but not bad either.

We were in Aqua class.  Excellent but a problem with the Blu dining room on this ship is that they allow the suites and the additional cabins put on the Reflection to eat in the Blu dining room.  This results in waits for your dinner.  We had a some unfortunate incidents in which they forgot about us waiting despite giving us a pager and this was really very poor.  This is a system problem which the cruise company needs to address.  We did not have similar issues with Equinox or Ecclipse, sister ships but which had less Aqua rooms and no Aqua suites and also did not allow the Suites from other classes to eat in the dining room. Unfortunately on Reflection the dining room was not increased in size and this creates the issue on this ship though I have heard they may be adding another dining room as they have clearly realized the issue. 

Since our dining experience is such an important part of the cruise for us, these episodes of dropped appointments, especially since it happened again on our last night, left a bitter taste in our mouth for the whole cruise.   Other than the dining room gaffuffle, the experience in every other regard was satisfactory. 

I would consider this ship and this cruise but I would question whether it is worth the upgrade to pay for the Aqua class, which I had felt in the past it was.  I would not probably go on Aqua class on this ship in the future.

Jab's Tips

Naples, Italy - Forget Sorrento....if never been, go to Positano and take in Pompeii. Capri is absolutely wonderful and worth doing on your own....no need for the ship tour.
Piraeus (Athens), Greece - See Accropolis. The city is big. Was quite clean this time compared to 1 year before the Olympics when Athens was in disarray.
Mykonos, Greece - Probably good if you like beaches. See Mykonos or Santorini....one is enough...either or.
Celebrity Reflection Celebrity Reflection - Avoid Blu and Aqua class unless you are really into spa. The dining room issues (see above) needs to be addressed before I would consider Blu again. Food was good but there is a problem with the service. Overall, a very nice cruise ship however. Very clean, stable and most of the staff is wonderful
