Hi to all Celebrity Cruisers!
I just wanted to write a quick review onboard the Celebrity Reflection for the Mardi Gras/Mexico cruise.
In one word, it was AMAZING!
We were in a Royal Suite 1622. Beautifully appointed, meticulously clean…..and lots of room! AHhhhhh! Rudy our butler found us almost immediately and introduced himself as well as Josviano, our suite attendant. We found our shore-side concierge arrangements all in order. Bar was stocked with lots of sparkling and still water, cut limes and lemons and our 2 requested liquors with an ice bucket on the bar counter. We had requested a second comforter for the bed and extra pillows. The bed was comfortable with high thread cotton sheets but if I am allowed a small complaint, the provided pillows were much too firm. I did ask Jos for some down or feather pillows, and he provided somewhat softer but non down pillows. Celebrity could do a little better in this area IMHO.
We loved having the extra space in this suite as the weather for this cruise did not cooperate. Coolish and windy, so it was a treat to enjoy our morning coffee and afternoon reading in our suite.
We did not ask much from Rudy and he kept asking he there is anything more he could do. He is an exceptional kind and attentive crew member. I am sure he will be missed on the Reflection as he was moving over to the Apex at the end of this cruise.
My only complaint ( and I believed it was noted by another CCer) is the noise issue in the master bedroom. I Believe the bedroom is located right by a mechanical room or shaft? We were woken up several nights with clanging and crunching noises. I would try to select another RS.
