I just returned from a 3-day trip on the brand new Celebrity Reflection and I know this is a ship that I will recommend to clients and cruisers. One thing I keep coming back to about the Celebrity Reflection is how innovative it is. Celebrity is known for a very modern look with clean lines, and this was definitely present in the Reflection Suite. This beautiful two-room suite features a giant shower where passengers get an unbelievable view, because the shower is all glass and looks out over the edge of the ship. Celebrity is also known for its amazing food. I can attest – I’m not a big fan of steak, but I had a filet mignon that had my mouth watering.
For a view of all the Reflection’s innovative features, check out my slide show below featuring pictures I took on my cruise. [Read more →]

For the first time ever Celebrity’s master chefs Jacques Van Staden and John Suley will cook at the The James Beard House, which is a culinary honor. James Beard was a chef who helped guide American chefs and enthusiasts to reach culinary excellence. Today, to receive an award from the James Beard Foundation is a supreme honor.
The James Beard House is known for its events, including guest chef-led dinners, which aim to educate, inspire, entertain and foster an appreciation of cuisine among members as well as the general public, while benefiting the non-profit James Beard Foundation.
“We selected Jacques and John to cook at the James Beard House because the culinary journey that they have created for guests on Celebrity Cruises’ ships truly is outstanding,” said Izabela Wojcik, Director of House Programming, The James Beard Foundation. “Their incredible creativity is the reason why Celebrity’s guests have the opportunity to delve into an extraordinary range of globally influenced flavors and presentations.”
“We want people to realize that the cuisine we’re serving on our ships is extraordinarily unique, creative, and modern, and it’s a large part of what makes the Celebrity vacation experience unique. What we offer has in many ways changed the dynamics of cruise ship dining, and there’s no better way to tell our story than by cooking at the James Beard House.” said Van Staden.
Many of the dishes for this event are served onboard like the Wild Boar Baby Back Rib Spring Rolls with Truffle Barbecue Sauce and the Grand Marnier Soufflé. Keep reading to find out the full menu. [Read more →]
