This is a great Itinerary.  Every port is exciting in its own way...no feeling of filler/ad on ports like on some itineraries.  The celebrity Reflection is a modern and grand ship with all the extras you could want.

Cabin / Stateroom
The only negative is that the door to the attendant's closet where they keep the cleaning supplies is located right next to the cabin door. They aren't very mindful of opening and closing that door quietly. It slams closed a lot starting early in the morning. Not really any earlier than you will be up and awake, so its not terrible. Much better than hearing things that go on above you (if you've had that experience before, i.e. carts rolling or people running). The room and balcony are nice, the balcony sticks out the furthest so you can look left and right without seeing into your neighbors balcony. Overall a good room.

Civitavecchia (Rome), Italy
Messina, Sicily
Messina isn't very exciting, take the train to Taormina, which is a really beautifully situated old town with plenty of shopping, restaurants, great views and more.
Mykonos, Greece
Rhodes, Greece
Rhodes was surprisingly exciting. I didnt expect much of it, its mostly an old ruin town....but it was beautiful, charming, lots to see and shop for and great places to eat.
Kusadasi (Ephesus), Turkey
In all fairness, we chose to stay onboard this day. We got off and wandered around for an hour or so, but didnt really do anything nice.
Santorini, Greece
Best port of the trip! Take the boat to OIA! Just about 15 or 20 minutes to the left. The most beautiful quintessential part of Greece! It gets busy there with very narrow walk ways, but the modern feel and views are unparalleled.
Piraeus (Athens), Greece
Take the Hop on Hop Off Red bus and get a nice tour of the city with great views all the way to the Acropolis. This is the must see in Athens.
Naples, Italy
We opted to take the boat to Capri. A really incredible and beautiful city. I recommend this highly.
