Celebrity Reflection is this great cruise line's newest marvel which boasts an expanded deck, luxurious suites, main and speciality restaurants, more sun loungers on the pool deck and extra seats in the theatre and a state of the art spa with every treatment imaginable. On this eight day Eastern Caribbean Getaway cruise, which begins and ends in Miami, you will visit the lovely islands of Puerto Rico, St Thomas and St Maarten as well as having three full days at sea so you can fully appreciate all the ship's wonderful facilities.
You join the Celebrity Reflection in the great ocean-side city of Miami in Florida. Greater Miami and its famous beaches is a paradise of interconnected oceanfront cities, urban hubs, charming villages and tropical parks. Explore Miami’s diverse neighbourhoods and see all the colourful Art Deco hotels before relaxing in your suite ready to begin your cruise around the Eastern Caribbean.
Your first full day at sea and a great opportunity to get to know all that this super modern cruise ship has to offer. Excitement brews with up to 50 international craft beers in the enhanced Michael's Club. Take a painting class with a master artist in The Art Studio, celebrate the joys of outdoor grilling in the new Lawn Club Grill and enjoy more than 20 delicious options in the Main Restaurant. Meals are an important part of any cruise and the food on the Celebrity Reflection is second to none.
Your first port of call is San Juan, the capital of Puerto Rico. As with all destinations, a variety of tours can be booked on board, or you can explore the islands on your own. Puerto Rico is an island getaway with something for everyone - stunning beaches, uncompromising luxury, adventurous outdoor activities and a colourful nightlife. The beach at Isla Verde is beautiful and powder-white with crystal waters and easy access to Old San Juan and other cultural and shopping attractions.
St Maarten gives you the chance to enjoy three distinct cultures on one 37 square mile island. There is the soberness of the Dutch on one side, the savoir-faire of the French on the other, and the blending of both with exotic native heritage. Add to this dozens of beaches and lagoons and more than 300 restaurants and you can understand why this island is the most visited of all the Leewards. Shopping is duty free and casinos, discos and nightclubs stay open till dawn. There is something to satisfy every taste on St.Maarten
Though it’s only 32 square miles in size, St. Thomas has a million miles worth of things to do. Go shopping and sailing, snorkeling and sightseeing, or diving and dining. Play the island’s world-renowned golf course, relax on picture-perfect beaches, take the Skyride 700 feet above the city or climb the famous 99 Steps of Charlotte Amalie for an incomparable view of the Caribbean.
Another full day at sea and a good time to take part in some of the on board activities and deck games. Relax in a sun lounger and soak up the Caribbean rays, unwind in your own cabana-style haven, The Alcoves, on the Lawn Club, and check out all the new spa innovations in the enhanced AquaSpa by Elemis. Your holiday time is precious and the staff and crew on Celebrity Reflection will make sure you don't waste a moment of it.
Your last full day at sea as you head back to Miami, so make the very most of it. Hot and cold, wet and dry, peace and tranquility can be enjoyed in any order you like to help restore your balance and serenity in the spa where sensory experiences include an infrared sauna, aromatic steam room, cold room, sensory showers and even a modern take on a traditional Hammam. Tonight why not try to win back some of your holiday money in the ship's buzzing casino.
Today your wonderful Eastern Caribbean Getaway cruise comes to an end when the Celebrity Reflection sails back into Miami. Say farewell to new found friends and possibly spend some more time in Florida visiting the Keys and the Everglades and relaxing on the beaches before catching your flight back home.
