Celebrity Reflection Cruise Review by Altonite
- Sail Date: March 2019
- Destination: Western Caribbean
- Cabin Type: Deluxe Ocean View with Verandah
Did an excursion in Cartagenia to "old town". Be prepared there and around town to be swarmed by people selling stuff. And when you say "no" to one, another one arrives right behind, and they just keep on coming. We were not able to enjoy our tour or even hear our guide as a result. Also, traffic moves really, really slow. On retrospect, we would have been better off staying by the ship and visiting the great little zoo there.
Our only complaint over the whole cruise was the Casino onboard is VERY tight, especially the slot machines. We didn't see anyone win anything. Also, be careful about betting limits. The one guy over the 11 nights on the cruise we saw win anything hit a Royal Flush at the ultimate Texas Holdem table. He should have been paid close to $7500 with his bets on the table. However they paid him only $5000. When his friend asked where the rest of the money was, they pointed to the fine print on the little board at the corner of the table which said the maximum payout was $5000. What a shame.
Our cabin. a deluxe veranda was nice and well kept by our state room attendant, it just had insufficient space (just 3 small drawers) to store our clothes. Nice bathroom with plenty of space but the "night lite" that we could not turn off was too bright and woke you up when you went in during the middle of the night.

City TourDid the Hop on Hop Off Bus tour. Traffic was terrible and the crowds selling stuff when we got off in Old Town just kept coming and wouldn't quit. Couldn't concentrate on what the tour guide was saying. Trying to get back the bus was very crowded.View All 311 City Tour Reviews
Costa MayaHung out by the beach and actually did a couples massage which was wonderful and 1/3rd the price on the ship. Ate at one of the restaurants and watched the Mexican wrestlers as an added bonus. Lots of shopping there now.View All 2,517 Costa Maya Cruise Port Reviews
