My husband and I love to cruise!!! We started in 2007 and have been on 13 cruises, so far. Next one in Feb. 2015 and then Oct. 2015. We love to meet new friends onboard!

We Love Sea Days!!
This was our second transatlantic on Reflection in the Reflection Suite and it was SO much fun!! The ports were different this time. We left from Rome (Civitaveccia) so we went 4 days early to experience the city first. We absolutely loved Madeira! I wish we had more time there. The other 3 ports in the Caribbean we had done many times. The crossing was so smooth! Reflection attracts an older crowd but there was quite a mixture of all ages. Not many kids though. My 2 girlfriends and I brought a couple of costumes and the crew loved it! We made the most of the 70's theme night. There was also a paid event party called Indulgence which was very cool!! The service on Celebrity ships is always far above other lines for us. Everyone is so nice and they go out of their way to make you happy. The entertainment choices were better than expected on this cruise based on our past experiences. There was some really talented guest performers. The food is always great. Our favorites are Lawn Club Grill and Murano. Our only disappointment was Blu. It used to be good. Don't know what happened. Oh, and they don't make a big deal about the last formal night anymore. No flaming baked Alaska presentation or parading out the chefs. All in all, a great cruise and we made some lifelong new friends!

Love the private cabanas! The water was perfect!
Just went home.
Took a tour of the island! So beautiful!
Should be a "Good" button to click. We always go to Maho beach. We finally saw a 747 land! The BBQ chicken at the restaurant there is amazing!
I wish there was a "Good" button to click. Didn't do anything this time but in the past, we took a tour from Annie Fontaine. She's great and is still at it. We saw her to say hi.
We didn't do anything. Spent our pre cruise in Rome.
Allure of the Seas
Don't go right up to the buffet when boarding. Instead, try the roast beef sandwich at the Park Cafe! Yum!!! Be sure to make friends with Benjamin at the Rising Tide bar. He will take good care of you!
There's a special brunch in the main dining room on one of the sea days. Wait at least an hour to beat the crowds or you will be waiting in line.
Voyager of the Seas
Try taking your luggage off yourself on disembarkation day. It was SO much easier for us! We didn't have to wait in a room with a bunch of others for our number to be called. We just hung out in our room till about 9 and got off the ship easily. Didn't have to do any re-packing.
Try the Lawn Club Grill! It's so much fun to make your own flatbread and get grilling tips from the pros! Awesome food!
Bring your own hair dryer unless you actually like those crappy ones that are attached to the wall.
Don't depend on your cell phone to have the correct time. Wear a watch. I found that between our 2 phones, the time of day varied wildly while on a cruise.
