Horrible Ship and Itinerary
Celebrity Reflection Cruise Review to Caribbean - Eastern
Review summaryAvoid Casino, Shopping, Main Dining Room. Casino- total rip off of the ignorant passengers. If a regular casino, they would not have any educated gamblers set one foot into the place. Examples are: Poker tournament had 10 players with $60 buy in....... prizes 300 + 200 with the house taking a hundred. Last game they double entry fee to 120. Prizes just doubled as well. Took house same 45 minutes of a dealer, but house take doubled to $200. Cash poker game house takes 10% up to $25 on each hand. With each player buying in at $200, or $1800 total in game. After an hour, or 40 hands, house take was almost $1000. Typical casino take $5 per hand, not $25. Avoid the game....only casino wins in long run. Craps do not pay True odds unless you're betting $25 on line... can only back up two times. Never seen any casino not pay true odds and limit to 2 times back up. Blackjack dealer hits soft 17. No surrender. Pays only 6 to 5 for blackjack. Again worst possible rules for the player. Slot machines are just as bad, yet marketed by Ship daily. Advertising in daily paper the payout but when you ask what percentage payout they refuse to tell you. Would put in paper, $28,000 paid out. Misleading as hell to unsuspecting passengers. Since if you put in $5 and get back $3, you have lost money, but ship advertises they paid out $3. Just like a car dealer bait and switch advertising. Shopping on Board. All over priced and ship hustles the passengers like a car dealer would . An example, Watches... one person in our group was a Nun and wanted a watch. Store clerk tried hard to sell her watch costing over $1000. She said no and clerk asked how much she would spend. She told store clerk under $100 Clerk went into back and brought out watch marked for sale for $100. Clerk told Nun she would give it to her for $50 and that was the best deal possible for a watch that was being offered just to her. She bought it. 2 days later ship had watches on sale for $25 for two watches. Nun was heart broken and felt she had been taken advantage of. Watch out for gelato..1 scoop free per cruise..$550 per scoop thereafter. Bottled water $6. Last day only day to shop. All hand bags 40% off. Two for $25 watches. 75% off jewelry $10 fashion accessories $10 t-shirts. All in all last day was last ditch effort by ship to hustle every passenger for anything they could get for all the junk they got from China.

AVOID it . Like walking into a car dealer or junk shops in the island.....be prepared to be hustled every 5 feet by someone trying to sell you something.
