My Top 7 Reasons to Book A Celebrity Cruise

Celbrity Cruise Ship Reflection

ALL ABOARD…… Celebrity Cruises has changed my mind about cruising. Up and until December it had been over 20 years since I had been on a ship and never had I been on ships as large as the Celebrity Cruises lineup in their fleet. Just an ok travel experience for me back then. Well today, I am sharing my recent 5-day Caribbean cruise on the Celebrity Reflection with my travel girl Shauna, and my top 7 reasons I am now a happy cruiser and I can’t wait to book a family trip.


1. SERVICE ~ Celebrity Cruise Reflection

Have you been on a cruise before? Do you have a favorite cruise line? Have you been on a Celebrity Cruise Ship? The first thing I experienced was the amazing crew and their super friendly reception upon arrival and it did not stop the entire trip. I had my very own room attendant available for my every need.

2. State Rooms ~ Celebrity Cruise Reflection

Start your holistic wellness journey with an incredible night’s rest sleeping on their exclusive eXhale® bedding, made with cashmere and super comfy mattress. The rooms are larger than normal with a nice sofa, desk/vanity, bathroom, and yes a walk-out balcony!! I enjoyed a complimentary fruit bowl, fresh flowers, and champagne with strawberries upon my arrival.

3. SPA ~ Celebrity Cruise Reflection

The Spa~The Main Pool Deck~The Hideaway are your locations to find your chill factor. Whether you need a reservation at the salon or an entire personalized holistic spa regimen, your dedicated complimentary Spa Concierge will take care of everything for you. Escape to The Spa and discover more than 120 rejuvenating treatments, including Destination-Inspired-Treatments. At the heart of The Spa, experience the SEA Thermal Suite and Persian Garden, hair salon, barber shop, nails, and more. Definitely a playground for the senses.

3. FITNESS CENTER AND PROGRAMS ~ Celebrity Cruise Reflection

Get your endorphins flowing with first-at-sea fitness programs. I am not much one to exercise when on vacation but Shauna didn’t miss a day. I do enjoy swimming, biking, snorkeling, and anything outdoors for my workouts. But for you die-hards, their state-of-the-art weight machines and cardio equipment will take your fitness to the next level. And, if you’re looking for motivation, you can enjoy the hottest fitness trends and classes, never before seen on Celebrity. The inspiration doesn’t end there—hop on a stationary bike and ride out to sea enjoying the floor-to-ceiling windows that offer magnificent views of the sea.

A new experience for the Celebrity Cruise guest is spending a PERFECT DAY ON COCOCAY. This charming and well-developed island in the Bahamas is one of the Caribbean’s most exclusive destinations. Perfect Day at CocoCay, Royal Caribbean’s award-winning private island is a destination like no other in the Bahamas. They have partnered to share the island with their sister company Celebrity to provide travelers a better way to experience the world around them. Check the specific itinerary for this special excursion.

CocoCay is a private island paradise in the Bahamas that’s entirely yours to explore during your day here. From the largest freshwater pool in the region to a swim-up bar, luxurious overwater cabanas, water slides, multiple dining options, and soft, white sand beaches, CocoCay is a curated playground offering a day in the sun for every taste.

COCO CAY BEACH CLUB ~ Celebrity Cruise Reflection

Shauna and I were hosted at the Coco Beach Club on CocoCay. It is a serene, premium space with a shimmering infinity pool, elevated dining in the Club House, and its own powdery beach, with beach chairs and gorgeous private cabanas to rent, including an exclusive cluster right over the aquamarine water.

For lunch, we enjoyed a beautiful array of fresh fish and fruit as well as an enormous lobster tail. It was to die for!


5. Boat Trip ~ Snorkle & Tour ~ Celebrity Cruise Reflection

After our Perfect Day at CocoCay, the captain took us on a long sail from the Bahamas down south of Florida but just north of Cuba over to the island of Cozumel. We had a few choices for our day there so being the water dog that I am Shauna and I were excited to go snorkeling with our Celebrity hosts. Oh, what a fun day. The waters in Cozumel are bar none and the fish were all around us in the water. I can say another PERFECT DAY!

  • We enjoyed a sumptuous onboard lunch of fresh ceviche, guacamole, fresh pineapple and papaya. My favorite foods!!! You can even enjoy a cocktail if you wish after snorkeling, of course.
  • We sailed along Cozumel’s breathtaking southern coast to beautiful snorkeling sites.
  • Snorkel the reefs, swimming through clear turquoise waters with our expert dive master guided us over intricate coral formations and along

6. ONBOARD ACTIVITIES & ENTERTAINMENT ~ Celebrity Cruise Reflection

There is so much to choose from that we could not experience it all. We decided to see the magic show in the theatre and the magician did not disappoint. Very entertaining. We were all trying to figure out his tricks.

You can also play pickle ball, shuffleboard, shop, family fun, casino, and so much more. Read HERE about all of the onboard activities and entertainment available.

7. EAT & DRINK ~ Celebrity Cruise Reflection

There are so many places to eat on board. One thing about a cruise is that there is no way you will go hungry and indulge in some of the best international flavors. We ate at Tuscan Grille An Italian ristorante and enoteca with a contemporary twist. Shauna claims that their Teramisou is the best she has ever had. We also dined at Merono, a new take on classic French cuisine. We were treated to a tableside cooking making it a most fun and unique experience.

Shop My Look

This dress is by the popular brand Farm Rio. Unfortunately, it is sold out but I linked the accessories and a couple of dresses with similar vibes. I discovered Farm Rio about 5 years ago and I have collected about 6 or 7 pieces from their collections. They mostly do tropical vacay styles so they really never go out of style. So, if you live in the south, near the coast, or headed on a tropical vacation then you should check out this brand.



I am now a confirmed cruiser! I won’t do it every vacation but definitely great for those spur-of-the-moment trips when I am ready to get away. It was the perfect mix of relaxation, delicious food, luxury accommodations, and exciting adventures. Choose from 3-day 5-day or 7-day cruises. There are 15 ships and counting with amazing itineraries to choose from so pick out your ship and destination and book HERE!
