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.

Nice size room with a good size bathroom and shower. Wonderful deck. Really had every thing we needed, specially the large Closet.

Ship Tip

Remember to bring dressy evening clothes. Men no shorts in the dinning rooms ,even dress shorts.

All shore excursions end in the town of Fira. Only three ways back to ship from there. The cable car with very long wait times. the donkeys not recommended and the 588 steps, that were not too bad if you are active, however you share the steps with the donkeys, who have no manners. donkey poop everywhere.

The excursion are good, however all tours end with a hard sell sales pitch. The rug people are hard to convince you are not buying a rug. And at this point the tour guide who was great, turns into a sales person, because I think they must get a cut of the sales

The tours end with a hardcore sales pitch at the Jewelry stores.
