An overview of our Celebrity Reflection cruise. Part 1


At Dubai Airport.
I had been let to believe that it was "special"...
I did not think so.


Our flight with Emirates.
In a Boeing 777-300ER
Probably one of my most comfortable flights


The view form our hotel room in Rome.
The Rex might not look like much, but it offers good value for money
We had an economy room...so hence the view(possibly)
but it was only for one night and we did a lot of walking,
meaning that looking out of a window was not a requirement when booking


Rome...


Rome train station.
Clean and very well run.
If only we had the same service levels!


Our "home" for the next 11 days


And our stateroom.
HUGE and comfortable


We say goodbye to the port of Civitavecchia


Sunset...


Celebrity Reflection has actual lawn on the top deck!


Breakfast of champions?
I would not know as I did not sample them


Making certain that I know where to head in case of an emergency


On board you do this often...
It becomes a habit VERY quickly


Our Captain greets the guests


The only way to get to Santorini is via a tender.
The harbour is too small for large cruise ships to dock


My new favourite town...Istanbul


This is an "outdoor" shower attached to one of the suites.
It can be made opaque at the touch of a button.


Looking back at the bridge as we sail out of Istanbul.
This is the view from the helipad


Bringing the red carpet to the ship in Kusadasi, Turkey


Our first sunrise at sea...
