This was our second transatlantic on Reflection in the Reflection Suite and it was SO much fun!!  The ports were different this time.  We left from Rome (Civitaveccia) so we went 4 days early to experience the city first.  We absolutely loved Madeira!  I wish we had more time there.  The other 3 ports in the Caribbean we had done many times.  The crossing was so smooth!  Reflection attracts an older crowd but there was quite a mixture of all ages. Not many kids though.  My 2 girlfriends and I brought a couple of costumes and the crew loved it!  We made the most of the 70's theme night.  There was also a paid event party called Indulgence which was very cool!! The service on Celebrity ships is always far above other lines for us.  Everyone is so nice and they go out of their way to make you happy.  The entertainment choices were better than expected on this cruise based on our past experiences.  There was some really talented guest performers.  The food is always great.  Our favorites are Lawn Club Grill and Murano.  Our only disappointment was Blu.  It used to be good.  Don't know what happened.  Oh, and they don't make a big deal about the last formal night anymore. No flaming baked Alaska presentation or parading out the chefs.  All in all, a great cruise and we made some lifelong new friends!

We didn't do anything. Spent our pre cruise in Rome.
Funchal, Madeira
Took a tour of the island! So beautiful!
Basseterre, St. Kitts
I wish there was a "Good" button to click. Didn't do anything this time but in the past, we took a tour from Annie Fontaine. She's great and is still at it. We saw her to say hi.
Philipsburg, St. Maarten
Should be a "Good" button to click. We always go to Maho beach. We finally saw a 747 land! The BBQ chicken at the restaurant there is amazing!
Labadee (Cruiseline Private Island)
Love the private cabanas! The water was perfect!
Miami, Florida
Just went home.
