Celebrity Reflection – cabin 6232 This was our 7th cruse, 4th on celebrity and second on reflection. In hindsight this was the best cruise ever, my husband and I(65 and 67) loved every minute. The ship was in excellent condition, cleanliness was top notch, food was good (perhaps not outstanding) and the itinerary was amazing. Embarkation and disembarkation at Fort Lauderdale was straight forward and took about 40 minutes each time. The horror stories that I had read about US customs were unfounded. Because we had a late flight I booked a dayroom at the Pullman hotel close to Miami airport and that was a brilliant idea. Hours spent by a beautiful pool while my husband had a leisurely rest rather than sitting in the airport for 10 hours, money well spent. . My husband and I had purchased the premier drinks package primarily because I like drinking champagne. We love the ease of having a package but although it was good with 5 sea days perhaps not cost effective, there is a limit to how much I can drink! The classic package is included with our September cruise so we have decided to pay the surplus and see how the $’s work out. We loved our cabin (6232) and balcony and Xavier our cabin steward was excellent, he kept our cabin spotless and always seemed to anticipate our schedule so we hardly saw him. When we did bump into each other he was charming, friendly and very helpful. A true star We like to have a very lazy (possibly sedate cruise) and the age range of passengers suited us as there were few children, not too many dedicated drinkers and not many walking aids. I would guess the average age was about 55-65 Entertainment was good and seemed to suit all tastes. ‘A Hard Day’s Night’ – the Beatles tribute band was superb and had everyone singing clapping shouting and reliving their youth. I loved their performance. The solo guitarist, string duo and house band were all excellent. We booked private tours at each port using cruise critic, trip advisor and previous cruisers comments to choose and organise. All were excellent both in content and economically. I much prefer small group private tours rather than celebrity tours. See my more detailed reviews on trip adviser Miami - Big Bus Tour - bit disappointing St Johns - Scenic Tours - value for money Barbados - Calabaza - catamaran tour - beyond amazing St Lucia - fun packed day St Kitts - Royston - amazing guy - book him St Marteeen - Soualika Tours - Excellent but perhaps not for 65+ Celebrity is our cruise line of choice and we can’t wait until our equinox cruise in September.

Best cruise ever

Cabin Review

Deluxe Ocean View with Verandah
Cabin 1B 6232
Location of cabin was ideal, fairly midships, close to elevators and stairs and very quiet. This was a connecting cabin but this didn't make any difference to layout or noise levels.
An excellent location.
