We chose this cruise because of the itinerary which included ports which we had not been to previously. Embarkation was great more or less straight on. We chose to go Concierge class and didn't find that we had any extras except for the appetiser in the afternoon which we enjoyed. Cabin we felt was a little smaller than we were used to as we kept bumping into each other. The cabin steward Mohamed was great and saw to our every need. We were very disappointed with the food in the main dining room, the choice was limited and the quality was not up to the standard of other ships we have been on recently. We had a great deal of hassle with our table at (Too long a story to outline here). Talked to a number of guests and they also found the food disappointing.Waiters were great. The food in the speciality restaurants was first class but of course this came at an extra cost of around $50 dollars. The food in the self service restaurant was great, plenty of choice and well cooked. Our cruise included a drinks package (Classic) but what they don't tell you is that it is very limited in what you can have. Most drinks were over $8-9 dollars per glass and therefore not available We upgraded our package on board and found that that covered everything we needed. Entertainment is average on this ship, most of it was just music no lectures or exhibitions. There were tours around certain areas of the ship but again this came at an extra cost. We did find that the ships company were constantly "on the sell" from dining experiences, to wine tasting, to pictures , to jewellery raffles, to spa treatments etc etc I had my hair done on a formal night, the cost of the blow dry was $60 dollars but the stylist told me that my hair was dry and he could give me a treatment for a few dollars. I agreed and ended up paying $123 dollars. Complained but was only offered a free blow dry. Not good enough. After all the complaints above, we did enjoy our cruise but would not travel on the Celebrity Reflection again. It was not a patch on our cruises with Celebrity Galaxy and Silhouette.

After all the complaints above, we did enjoy our cruise but would not travel on the Celebrity Reflection again. It was not a patch on our cruises with Celebrity Galaxy and

Cabin Review

Concierge Class
Cabin C2 1077
Bathroom and Balcony fantastic, We thought that the dressing table was in the
wrong y place as it was near the wardrobes and the entry to bathroom so you
were constantly in the way when drying your hair etc.
Facilities were great.
Cabin Steward was fantastic, couldn't wish for any better.
