I’ve been a bit concerned when reading some recent reviews on the Reflection so I was pleasantly surprised during this, my fourth time on this particular ship. I really cannot see what anyone has to complain about! It was my 23rd X cruise so I’ve had plenty of experiences to compare this with! The food quality, volume and selections were as good as usual. The Captain’s Club hostess (Luann) and the CD (Simon) were both efficient and entertaining. The Senior Officers were present on a few occasions and perfectly friendly. Guest Relations and Shore Excursions operated as normal. The check-in procedure was the fastest ever and debarkation went smoothly and ahead of schedule. Our waiter (Michelle) and stateroom attendant (Patricio) were excellent. Particularly good on this cruise were the bar and wait staff in the Sky Lounge during the 5-7 pm Elite and above “cocktail time”. Those were definitely the best appetizers I’ve had at these events! Even the entertainment was better than usual with the exception of a truly awful and embarrassing hypnotist show! Oh dear! My only complaint was that for the second cruise in a row X had arbitrarily changed my 6:00 pm early dining to 5:30 pm! That’s ridiculous (I’m not a 90 year old American living in Florida!!). I had no choice but to switch to late (8:30 pm) dining since selective was “full”. Anyway, I like set dining and having the same waiter and table mates!
