Disappointing by rwyeager

It is apparent that the cruise industry is forgetting about the comforts of the cruiser too better their bottom line.

A great taste of coastal Italy and France. by ctomchak72

We had an amazing trip. We combined a few days in Rome beforehand with the 6 night cruise and it gave us a great overview of stops we might not have visited. Our cabin (sky suite) was a nice size and the food, especially in Murano, was better than expected. We traveled with 12 people and it made things very easy since there was a span in ages from 9 to 57. There was something for everyone. The kids club and teen lounge didn't completely appeal to our kids this time around. While the cruise was family friendly, it was a more sophisticated vibe and the young ones were a bit bored. The boys spent a great deal of time between the pool and the basketball court. They would have loved some nightly organized sport events in lieu of the lounge. The young women (18) were happy to tag along with us old people and do Karaoke and Silent Disco (fun). Our favorite stops were Rome (but we didn't consider it a stop since we were there 3 days before boarding), La Spezia (Cinque Terre was amazing), Nice and Corsica. We went into every port. I was not a fan of Sardinia as I found the city over run with graffiti and it didn't have the same feel as the other ports. Naples is not one of my favorites either, but we chartered a boat for the day and went to Capri and had our most enjoyable day there. Overall, I thought the value for the investment was amazing. We spent less on this cruise and were able to upgrade to a suite with a premium beverage package for much less than most cruises. I checked prices on future sailings and haven't seen as good a deal on anything at this time. I would recommend this cruise to my friends and family in the future.

Ideal Mediterranean by gkleinmd

Our dinner (Opus) servers were exceptional -- Xavier, and especially Naik, who deserves to become a head waiter. He was professional yet genuine. Our "bar server", Alexandra, was also exceptional, guiding us through the confusion of our Elite allowances, and being especially warm and patient. Kudos to all. Didn't like having to deal with Shore Excursions with loud music next door!

Fantastic Cruise! by ChrisSLP25

Verified Review
/ Sail Date: / Traveled As: Couple

Everything about the cruise was great from start to finish. Embarkation was fast and easy. Getting to the ship from the train wasn't that easy. There was a Celebrity cruise person there that would take us by bus for 2 Euros per person. I seriously wish we had done that. We made it on eventually though. The ship was fantastic. Very clean, modern, and updated. We felt the staff was first and foremost the best part of Celebrity. Everyone we encountered remembered our names and bent over backwards to make us eel special. We truly enjoyed the company of the staff. The food was also superb! We felt that the quality of the food alone was reason to return as well. We loved the presentation and attention to detail, but above all the food itself was tasty and fresh. There was always something for everyone at the table to enjoy no matter what your taste or preference was. The cruise was organized well and we felt that the ship ran like a well-oiled machine. There really wasn’t any downside. We felt the entertainment was lacking a little bit, but not enough to deter us from not booking a cruise on this ship again. The entertainers themselves were great; the talent of the entertainers was definitely there. We just thought the shows themselves were lacking. Perhaps doing a rendition of a shortened Broadway show would have been better than just singers singing random songs from Broadway. They were great, but there wasn’t really a show it was just people singing songs, at least in our opinion. We loved the comedian Phil and the guest act Flyboys. Both were unique and we loved seeing them and would see them again in the future. We also really enjoyed the Solarium and adult only section of the ship. That was probably our favorite part of the ship! Everything was so clean and we appreciated the effort to keep the ship sanitary. The bathroom attendants were great and I loved the buttons to open the doors and the effort to keep paper towel use at a minimum with rolled cloth towels was very classy. Attendants would clean the bathrooms frequently and hand sanitizer was enforced before entering each dining area as well as before you returned onto the ship from port. I would love if there were a decrease in the use of plastic straws. We felt that they were unnecessary, but we applauded Celebrity’s dedication to recycling efforts throughout the ship. The captain was Greek and had a sense of humor about him. Disembarkation was smooth and flawless. We used the overpriced Celebrity bus shuttle to the airport because we didn't want any hassles and it was very easy. No hiccups at all. Ports of call were excellent. We loved every single place we visited. We mostly did things on our own based on prior research. We booked excursions privately for the most part. We did a transfer to Taormina because we were afraid about getting back on time. The time was really on 2, 2.5 hours in Taormina for $65. Not the best, but they did make a note when I complained to the shore excursion desk. The other was Athens tour of Acropolis and the Lake. This ended up being such a fantastic excursion! We loved the relaxation of the lake after sweating in the hot sun on top of the Acropolis. The guide and bus driver were also fantastic! Shore excursions were a little overpriced, but overall happy we did them. Highly recommend this vacation. You won't be disappointed.

Second cruise on this ship in 12-month period. Enjoyed it very much. It should be called "A foodie's dream cruise" because all the visited locations had simply amazing food options.

Simply Perfect by wallace05

From the Crowne Plaza in Rome, Italy and through our entire trip through Italy, Greece and Malta, everything was simply perfect. Celebrity believes strongly in customer service and it showed. From cold wet towels, cold water and fruit kabobs reentering the ship after an excursion to beautiful ports of call that were safe and friendly, we couldn't have asked for more. We enjoyed it immensely.

We loved Europe! by rayrussell

Second time on The Reflection. Amazing ship, Only concern is that at the ports we visited, the ship was a long way from any type of town or city. I feel that the cruise company should arrange better transportation to and from. Either cover the cost or perhaps arrange tenders.

Great Cruise by TucsonBob

Verified Review
/ Sail Date: / Traveled As: Couple

Celebrity onboard excursions groups are way to big. Only advantage is 24 hour cancel policy. AA cruise excursions were small groups and much better. Only problem is the 7 day cancel policy. They need to address this issue and get it down to 3 day cancel policy

Very Interesting by sisterwattitude

I feel that the food selection in the "Ocean Cafe" was very good, but very repeated. The options was good, but need to have more options. The dinning area was "too slow"!! Also need to try harder to try and group your request. (table for 2 only) NOT LARGE TABLE

Cruise was good, however BJ’s ruined part of it by not submitting Celebrity Captains club numbers, this we missed out on activities we were entitled to. Will NEVER book through ever again!
