We were apprehensive as it was our first every cruise. We had been in Orlando for 12 nights prior to travelling down to Fort Lauderdale for an overnight stay before joining Reflection on 22 December 2017 for an 11 day cruise. Embarkation went very well probably better that checking into an airport! We were welcomed on board then went in search of the Ocean view cafe. What a wonderful selection of food! Later we went to our stateroom where we were welcomed by our concierge Weyon. What a great fellow he was he explained everything we asked about the ship and proceedures to us. The stateroom and the balcony were excellent and the space had been used very well. We were Aft and had a great view of the wake left by the ship as it moved along. We were on deck 11. No one overlooked us and it was very private and comfortable. We had a marvellous experience which was compounded by our splendid concierge. Dining had been booked in the main dining room on a table for two each night. We used that table every night for the whole cruise. Our Waiter was Jeson from Goa he is a gentleman who really does know all about customer service. He was superb throughout the cruise. Our assistant waiter was Teresa from Peru. What lovely lady! Nothing was too much trouble. She handled everything first class. Jeson and Teresa were an excellent team. The quality and presentation of the food was second to none. We did not want to go anywhere else! The wine specialist was Tirana and she handled everything very well and her knowledge of wines was great. Our breakfast and lunches were spent in the Ocean view cafe. You could not get a better selection of food anywhere in the world. What a marvellous place it is. Entertainment on the ship was the best. We used the theatre almost every night. We lost a few dollars in the casino but it was most enjoyable!! We did not get involved with any activities other than lying in the sun. We have to say that service throughout the cruise was first class. It could not have been bettered. The staff on the Reflection are exceptional in every sense of the word. The company can be very proud of them. We enjoyed the ports we visited such as Costa Rica, Panama, Columbia, Cozumel and Grand Cayman. We stayed on board at Grand Cayman because we visit it regularly flying direct from the UK. Columbia we enjoyed and could see that there is a lot of history there. We will go on another cruise because we enjoyed it so much and we thought it was very relaxing we will definitely use Celebrity Cruise again because everyone cared such a lot for our well being. I hope you don't mind but I do have to say that your costing on WIFI is way over the top and also not very good. However I have to say I do have "a thing about charging for WIFI". Most hotels these days do not charge for wifi. Please consider my remarks. Thank you. Again and again thank you all for such a wonderful time for first time cruisers!!
