|Celebrity Reflection in port in Basseterre, St. Kitts|
Some people say that it doesn’t really matter what cabin you have on your cruise because you aren’t going to be in it that much. I am proof positive that this, unfortunately, is not true. We were in St. Kitts only two weeks ago on the Celebrity Summit in a Royal Suite with a magnificent balcony where I thoroughly enjoyed the sail into St. Kitts with its amazing views. On the Celebrity Reflection I am in an oceanview cabin on deck three and had I not had my earlier experience, I might have viewed St. Kitts as a less than stellar port. I usually tell people that these newer, larger ships make the cruise almost motion-less, but I will tell you that staying down on deck three I wish they would just leave the stabilizers on 24/7 because I am feeling the movement of the ship on the water and I am not liking it.

We secured our seats by the pool and we were able to wander in and out of the pool as we needed to while the sun progressively became hotter. Down by the beach there was a breeze, but at the pool we felt the sun beating down on us relentlessly. The pool is shallow on one side for those with children or anyone who wants to sit and not swim. There is a swim up bar on one side, a volleyball net, and the water was the perfect temperature overall.
Rita was our server and she got us a few drinks and a couple of sandwiches to help with our hunger pangs. Unfortunately, not one item on the menu was vegetarian (no less vegan), but she was able to ask them to make a grilled cheese sandwich for me. We asked if it was normally this quiet and it appears to be around this time of year that it is a less busy time, but the past few years the resort has gotten quieter and quieter. If you're looking for a not too hectic resort with great grounds and a great beach, the Marriott St. Kitts seems like an obvious choice.

Tomorrow is a sea day, which will mean lounging, relaxing, and enjoying the last few moments of our cruise.
