Rose Sculpture in the Atrium
We recently had the chance to tour the brand new Celebrity Reflection and thought you might like to see a few pics of this beautiful ship.
What do you think? Do you these photos make you want to cruise on the Reflection?
Venice: An Elusive Beauty
I have a love/hate relationship with Venice. On one hand, it is so beautiful and amazing, chock full of art, architecture and romance. On the other hand, it involves a lot of walking in a crowd...behind slow people...like Disney World with much smaller pathways. There are few places to sit, the marble or pavement that you walk on is unmerciful on tired feet, and restaurants are either cheap windows with no seating or crazy expensive mediocre food. The sites in Venice are some of my favorite in the world, but I have been more discouraged by this city than any other. It feels like if only you could happen upon the city when no tourists were present, it could be the perfect destination. But Venice exists largely because of tourists, so that dream is not realistic. And so, for me, Venice will remain this elusive, beautiful city that I dream of when I am back home, but silently curse while there. Maybe one day I'll experience the Venice of my dreams. I'll certainly never give up; this gives me the perfect reason to return...
Celebrity Eclipse Atrium
Normally, I like to write detailed descriptions of our cruises with a few pictures to accompany the blog, but with this beautiful ship, seeing is believing and you really need to see some of the great pictures we took in order to fully appreciate the Celebrity Eclipse. I hope you enjoy!
