Celebrity Reflection

Since Celebrity Reflection joined the Celebrity fleet, she has dazzled and amazed even the most well-travelled cruisers. She showcases spectacular vistas with 85 per cent of all staterooms having sweeping balcony views. Celebrity Reflection hosts passengers in a variety of five-star specialty restaurants, including, Murano, a classic French restaurant; Tuscan Grille; Silk Harvest Asian restaurant, and Qsine, a dining venue with a unique and playful approach to familiar dishes from around the world. Add the fresh green grass on the top deck’s Lawn Club and the incredibly pampering services in AquaSpa, and you may never want to set foot on land again. Celebrity Reflection offers a truly luxurious cruise experience.

Clothing on board Celebrity Reflection

Clothing on board Celebrity Reflection is typically casual attire, although shorts and swimwear are not permitted in the main restaurants. Nights at sea are classified as ‘evening chic’ for dress purposes and nights in port are classified as smart-casual. Evening chic replaces formal wear and means that you can be glamorous and sophisticated in your own way. The self-service restaurants require casual attire
