Default Celebrity Onboard Activities/Entertainment

Hey everyone!

I am a 29 year old male that is thinking about going on an Eastern TA cruise by myself sometime next year. I have been researching itineraries and ships. For the most part, I have narrowed my search down to the Celebrity Reflection 4/20 TA and the Norwegian Epic 4/20 TA. I love the on board amenities of the Epic, the price and the benefits they provide for the solo traveler such as the Studio and Studio Lounge.

What is holding be back from booking on the Epic is that I prefer the itinerary for the TA on the Celebrity Reflection, the Reflection has an indoor pool, which I'm unsure if the Epic does. I'm assuming on a TA an indoor pool could come in handy. Another reason I am impressed with the Reflection is that Celebrity seems to have a great wine program, which I am a huge wino. I know the Celebrity Reflection is a very new ship, with it's inaugural cruise just last month, but I am having difficulty discovering the type of entertainment and on board activities the ship may have. If you look at some of the newer Royal Caribbean ships, or even the Norwegian Epic, they tell you specifically what to expect. Does anyone know of some more specific types of entertainment and on board activities the Celebrity Reflection may have? What type of entertainment and on board activities do other Solstice class ships have?

I don't think I would get bored on the Epic, but unsure whether I would on the Celebrity Reflection. In all, I would be on the Reflection for 10 days.

I've been on two previous cruises when I was younger but never been on a cruise by myself.

I forgot to add I am also considering the April 14 Eastern TA on the Celebrity Silhouette and the April 15 Eastern TA on the Celebrity Equinox.

Based upon itineraries I would have to rank them:

1. Celebrity Reflection
2. Celebrity Silhouette
3. Celebrity Equinox
4. Norwegian Epic

I just fear getting bored on a Celebrity cruise as I know the least amount about them. Also, I don't gamble, so the casino is not of any interest to me on any of the ships. I kind of like that about Celebrity, it seems with them you can avoid the casino, where on Epic it seems to be a central part of the ship.

In all honesty, if you are considering the Epic and you are single, I would go on Epic.

I do not know if you are an experienced cruiser, but I will assume you are not so experienced. I think you will find that Celebrity is not made to cater to younger single men. Your fellow cruisers will be largely older couples who most likely will have a short conversation with you at the most, but not get overly involved.

On Epic you have the studio staterooms specifically designed for solo cruisers like yourself. They have programs daily for solo cruisers and make arrangements for them to dine together every night. Celebrity does not do this.

Bottom line (assuming you are traveling solo) I really think you will find more company and friendly singles on Epic, and on a TA that makes a big difference - because if you get bored being on your own on Celebrity there you are for 10 days.
