Cruise for Adventure, Not just sunning at the pool
Celebrity Reflection Cruise Review to Europe - Mediterranean
Just returned from doing TA to Rome followed by 11 night Eastern Med. Man do i need a vacation now. The Celebrity Reflection is a beautiful ship with a very nice Captain and crew that work to make your cruise experience a superior one. This itinerary is port intensive with only 3 sea days so if you are planning to lay back and chill at the pool then dance all night, you might look for a different cruise. Very interesting ports with lots to see and do in each so you will be busy and ready to relax in the evening. My take on this class of ships from Celebrity is one that specializes in packages: Specialty Dining with the many different up-charge venues, Drink package, internet, photo, and more i am sure, excursion package. We did go to one dining venue, The Lawn Grill when they offered if 2 for 1 when Select Dining was a complete disaster for seating and we really enjoyed dinner, but to pay $90 additional for 2 to go to Murano, Tuscan Grill, Qsine, could add to your sea pass account when the Main Dining Room is already included. Your choice. The Ocean Cafe buffet was very good for all meals. Pools are awesome, great gym facilities, nice entertainment, a huge Persian Gardens and a small complimentary sauna too. All in all, anyone should enjoy a cruise vacation on this ship.

Beware of tendering! Ship excursions go first so you need to get an early tender ticket if you plan to go ashore on tender ports.
