Celebrity Reflection

August 2016 - Celebrity Reflection to Europe - Mediterranean

11 Night Mediterranean Cruise on Celebrity Reflection

The excursions on this cruise were amazing!!!  We saw the ruins of the Colosseum in Rome, Acropolis and the Parthenon, Ephesus in Turkey and Pompeii in Athens.  Jaw-dropping-not to be missed.  There is nothing so beautiful anywhere on Earth as the Greek islands and the ocean waters surrounding them (Capri is my favorite). The people of the region are very friendly. A piece of advise--fly into Rome a day or two early or stay on a little longer.  There is so much to see, like the Vatican and Palantine Hill.  You would regret not seeing it.  Also, for the excursions, make sure you go with a guide--makes for a better experience.  This trip is a wonderful way of getting to see a lot of this part of the world in a relatively short amount of time.  I WANT TO GO BACK!!!

jillandrick801's Tips

Mykonos, Greece - Loved the island but it was very windy the day we were there. Plan on beach time if weather permits.
Naples, Italy - Capri is breathtakingly beautiful. If you go, skip the shopping and take the 1 hour boat ride around the island. Makes the tour!
Souda (Chania), Crete - Beautiful port. We were advised to skip tours which worked out, but a lot to see so go early!
Santorini, Greece - Bus ride was a little boring, but the scenery in the towns and looking out over the ocean was spectacular!! Beautiful lights up high on the cliffs after dark.
Civitavecchia (Rome), Italy - Fly in early or leave later. Sooo much to see in Rome that you couldn't see without some extra day/days.
Celebrity Reflection Celebrity Reflection - Get a stateroom with a balcony. Room service coffee in the early mornings on the balcony is the BEST!
