Review summary

Why did I like the cruise? Alexander, Jamie & OZ (Cruise staff)

Compared to other cruises? 16 nights on transatlantic is a long cruise so not that many young people.

Be specific. The cruise staff of 3 worked 100 hours a week to keep thing going. They put together Battle of the Sexes, Thriller Flash Mob and so much more. I give credit where credit is due.

Be honest. Celebrity Reflection is a nice ship. Transatlantic cruises are not caribbean cruise so pick carefully.Ports of call are something everyone should do at least once and check off your bucket list.

Overall the experience was good and I would recommend it anyone. I just had some problems but they were not the cruise lines fault. Be careful in the ports. I did catch a pick pocket.

My cabin was ok but it flooded 5 days into the cruise. We were on the starboard side and got moved to the port side . I found the port side to have great views.

Ship tip

Use room service for your breakfast if possible. Oceanview Cafe is very crowded. Eat at the Lawn Club and Muranos for excellent special dinning experience. In the theater sit back on deck 4 on the side down to the front row. Never sit in the bottom level front.
