June 2016 - 11 Night Eastern Mediterranean (Rome Roundtrip) Cruise on Celebrity Reflection
First cruise with Celebrity. The Reflection is a beautiful ship, well thought through design, very clean, beautiful public areas and wonderful staff.
We had a room 1074 mid-ship with a baloney. The room was a good size with a great bathroom and shower. Although it is a large ship holding 3000 + passengers it never felt crowed. Always a place to sit in the public areas including the pools. Our room attendants, Brian and Lincoln were fantastic. Never went to the specialty restaurants because the food and service in the main dinning areas were very good, especially in the "Opus Restaurant" where everyone made you feel so special.
One downside for my husband and I, is that we dress up for work and on vacation want to relax. We were surprised how dressy everyone was when the clock struck 6 pm. it was like a fashion show. Even if you were not going to a specialty restaurant, just walking around the ship after 6 pm made you feel like you had to be wearing your Sunday best.
We also felt celebrity had limited shore excursions, a few times we used outside tour companies at the ports.
Overall, this is a great ship and we definitely plan to cruise with Celebrity again.
