Celebrity Reflection is really taking shape at the shipyard and we can hardly wait for her launch later this year. Tell us what you'd like to know about the ship.
Is the timing such that the planned completion date will be met?According to this Celebrity produced YouTube video, it is slightly ahead of schedule. Float out is scheduled for mid August and conveyance down the Ems river in mid September.
Are there public laundry facilities availabe and the prices? If there is not can yu tell me how much the ships laundry costs?No, not on any Celebrity ship. The laundry service prices are comparable with what you might find at home. See this posting for the most current prices as displayed on Celebrity's web site.
One thing I can't seem to find on any of the deck plans is a promenade deck. That is my favorite place to walk in the mornings and I am having a bad feeling that this has been eliminated on solstice class ships. I know there is a deck 4 Promenade deck - but see no actual promenade. How come?????The Solstice class, as with many newer large cruise ships, don't have a traditional promenade deck. That area is now utilized for access to safety equipment such as lifeboats and rafts. Although one can still walk along this deck, and even sit on the lounges placed there, much of the views will be blocked by these boats. There is no way to walk continuously from one side to the other. Apparently it was felt by the designers that there is plenty of open deck areas already and the goal was to add more balcony cabins the area where lifeboats are typically stored on ships with traditional promenade decks, which is above the deck area.
Are there going to be any special things done for this inaugural ta sailing?

2. Who is the Capt and the Cruise Director? We've met a few of the crew on the Eclipse who will be moving over to the Reflection.Hi Denny,
Is the timing such that the planned completion date will be met?That's what we have booked too. Our plan is to stay on B2B, for the 3 night sailing and the 7 night sailing. Unfortunately, it's in December, and it creates a host of issues for us, so we may have to look at other Cruise options. I hope not, as I totally want to be on Reflection's first Caribbean sailings !
I am scheduled on the inagural Caribbean and the following 7 day Carib, Only 161 days to go but who's counting. When will excursions be available to view and reserve on the website?
what are the locations on the ship of the Aqua Suites? is there a layout of those suites?Hi NCRay,
I asked this previously, and was told the Captain should be Nikolaos Pagonis,We just got off of Silhouette with Captain Pagonis, and he said he will be taking a break shortly, and then will being doing the sea trials on Reflection. A great captain.
