Italy and Greece and Turkey. Best cruise, ship, staff and food yet! Our stateroom service was fantastic, the food in all venues was very good and the ship clean and easy to navigate. Highly recommend this cruise line and this itinerary. With the exception of Santorini all the excursions were outstanding. Santorini is too many people, too small an area and long waits. Pretty to look at from the ship. In Ephesus we used Curio Travel Turkey and Greece for the tour. The sights were outstanding, the van very comfortable and the guide (Ike) was great. Notable with this tour agency - no high pressure selling. Overall, the tours, ship and all service was the best we've experienced in many cruises. The ease of embarkation and disembarkation were great. No long lines. Luggage handling was very good. While we probably won't take this particular cruise again we will strive to have a cruse on the Reflection but definitely will use Celebrity. Our first Celebrity cruise to Bermuda as also very good. Recommend a few days in Rome prior or after the cruise. We stayed at the Napoleon Hotel which was clean, friendly and very convenient. Used Bobs Limo. service from the airport to hotel and to port. Great Trip.

Wonderful Ship, Wonderful Staff and Wonderful Cruise

Cabin Review

Sky Suite
Cabin S1 2196
Our cabin was large, deck seated four of us for games and conversation. The butler and stateroom attendant were great. The unit was very clean and was refreshed everyday.

Port & Shore Excursion Reviews

  • Acropolis
    We toured the city and then went to the Acropolis. The sites were outstanding and the tour van very comfortable. Would like to stay in Athens longer to explore more of the city and the ancient areas. Certainly a great stop.

  • Ephesus
    Tour - Ephesus Shuttle - Curio Travel Turkey & Greece. The van was clean and comfortable. The guide "Ike" was extremely good. Only two on the tour and we saw much of Ephesus. No high pressure sales at stops. This was a pleasant experience! We highly recommend this tour and tour company.

  • House of the Virgin Mary
    We arrived early prior to the great crowds. Is a meaningful stop and we were not rushed.

  • Santorini
    Beautiful to view from the Ship. The crowds were terrible in numbers, the cable car up required long lines, both ways. Rather had stayed on ship and enjoyed the view. May be an interesting site if not so crowded and "ride" up to the area not so time consuming.
