OVERVIEW

Celebrity Reflection is the fifth and final ship
in the line's Solstice class of ships.  This
highly successful class of ships and includes
Celebrity Solstice, Celebrity Equinox,
Celebrity Eclipse and Celebrity Silhouette.

These ships are designed to fulfill Celebrity's
slogan: “Modern Luxury.”  They are relatively
large ships but their passenger capacity has
been limited so that they are spacious rather
than crowded.  They are contemporary rather
than traditional but a great deal of attention has
been paid to the décor and art work on these
ships so that they are visually appealing.  
Attention to detail has also been paid to
quality, not just in the technical and physical
properties of the ships but also in such things
as service and dining.  They are elegant but yet
relaxed ships.     

Celebrity President & CEO Michael Bayley
has been quoted as saying that the name
selected for the ship  “led us to 'reflect back'
on the creation of the Solstice class as a
whole, and how . . . this class has transformed
the Celebrity brand.”  Accordingly, it is not
surprising that Reflection carries forward the
direction and many of the concepts that led the
prior ships in this class to be award winners.

However, Reflection is not a mere cookie-
cutter reproduction of her sisters.  She is a the
largest of the five ships, sporting an additional
deck.  This is in large part due to the addition
of 80 new cabins including new categories of
suites - - Aquaclass suites and Signature
suites.   The Aquaclass suites are an extension
of the successful Aquaclass staterooms on the
earlier Solstice ships.  The Signature class are  
category of five large suites located together in
a private section of Deck 14.  (There is also
one very large and opulent Reflection Suite).

To absorb the resulting  additional passengers
the main restaurants and entertainment venues
have been increased in capacity.  As a result,
the passenger flow and per passenger space
has not been noticeably affected.

There are also new venues including a
conference center and a new game room.  
Other venues, including the Sky Observation
Lounge and the Sunset Bar, have been
redesigned.  Others, such as the Quasar
nightclub that were on the earlier ships have
disappeared.

Still, the cruise experience on Reflection is
very much a Solstice class cruise experience.  
It is a premium product that appeals to more
sophisticated tastes.  It is more cultured than
action-oriented.  Yet, at the same time, it is not
stuffy.  A Solstice ship is a lively ship.

Caribbean ships.
The  Grand Foyer (above), is the
the ship's lobby and crossroads.  It
lies just forward of the central
atrium that rises up from Deck 4 to
Deck 15.

The design for the Grand Foyer was
inspired by the notion of a spring
unwinding and releasing energy.  
This is reflected in the shape of the
flowing staircase and the motifs in
the fabrics and furniture of the room.
 
The cruise line asserts "Celebrity
Reflection, like the Solstice Class ships
before her, is a museum at sea."  This is no
idle boast as there are 6,059 works of art on
Reflection.  Some of these works were
previously displayed on
Celebrity Summit,
Celebrity Constellation and Celebrity
Infinity.  However, there are many new
works including 491 that were
commissioned for Celebrity Reflection.

The theme of the collection is "The
Seductiveness of Reflection" and
"investigates the effect of art via the
physical  properties of reflective materials
as well as the more subtle act of reflection".

For the most part, the works are
contemporary in style and include works by
established artists as well as up and coming
artists.  In addition to paintings,
photographs and sculptures, there are
several large installations that occupy
entire rooms.
