European Adventure Part III

Leaving Messina, the next 24-hours will be a day at sea.  Time to explore and familiarize ourselves with the ship (Celebrity Reflection), then relax and enjoy the ship's amenities.

DOL-A-0251
Note the full-size motorcoach next to the ship.

DOL-A-0076


Our cabin was on deck 9, port side, and midship.  Outside each elevator is a ship map, something I found quite helpful in finding my way around the ship.

DOL-A-0330


The Messina Strait is only 2 miles at its widest point.

DOL-A-0372



As we make our way to our next port of call, we enjoy the seascapes and more.

DOL-A-0957



We also enjoyed time by the pools and hot tubs.   There were 3 pools in total; one indoors and 2 outdoors.

DOL-A-0136


We honestly didn't know what to expect on our very first cruise.  It never felt crowded,  there was always space to be found indoors or out.  If you wanted to be kept busy, there was always something to do.

People watching or touring the ship's galley, to spending time/money in the casino, spa treatments,  sampling food and drink at anyone of the several restaurants and lounges, taking part in organized activities, spending time in the games room, attend a show in the theatre or enjoy a good book.  

DOL-A-1405


Ciao for now!

I'm so glad you showed the coach next to the ship, it shows the sheer scale of this ship. It all looks so luxurious. You lucky thing! Chel x

I've been on three cruises but your ship is as fine a vessel as I've seen. A real beauty.
