The ship is new, but we found the "Modern Luxury" a little austere. The ship lacked the sense of warmth and comfort that we have experienced on other vessels.

The facilities, and specialty restaurants were excellent, but the paid for extras, and option packages were also more pricey than we have previously experienced, without offering added value.

Food and Dining

No criticisms, first class

The schedule of this trip needs to be revisited. Docking on Christmas Day in a location that was probably the most enchanting on the schedule (but almost entirely shut down) is a big mistake, versus say making that port of call a day later when local facilities would be open. Arriving in San Juan, so late in the day that local attractions closed within 45 minutes, and a sightseeing tour that was conducted after dark was also disappointing. In general tour options were too heavily focused on snorkeling and scuba, more thought needs to be put into the range of shore activities offered.

Service and Staff

5 out of 5
No criticisms, the crew were helpful, professional and friendly to a fault. The captain was both pleasant, made himself conspicuous on deck, and was approachable.

Ship Quality

As previously stated, the "Modern Luxury", I think crew members described it as "Edgy", the decor left us more with the feeling that we were in a modern office building, or Condo lobby,................maybe we are too old for "Edgy" :-)

Cabin / Stateroom

3 out of 5
A little smaller than we have previously experienced, but well appointed, and comfortable.

Pros: The food, and the great service of the crew

Cons: The schedule/itinerary

Recommends Celebrity Reflection? No.
