More pictures from the cruise we took during winter 2013. Part 1 is here.

The Celebrity brand of cruise focus on food and services rather than parties or shopping. This is our ship – Reflection – in San Juan, Puerto Rico.

ship2-1

This is the ship’s main dining room.

ship2-2

This is one of the many stations in the self-service restaurant that was opened more or less around the clock.

ship2-6

Our cabin class provides an exclusive sit-down restaurant which serves permits unscheduled seating (unlike the main dining room which imposes a set time for dinner).

ship2-8

We liked the ambiance of the room – it has sea view. The food comes in smaller portions and in healthier form.

ship2-3

Supposedly, less cream and fat was used in the cooking.  Look at the English bacon which looks almost too lean and dry.

ship2-7Breakfast museli trolley – prepared to your liking by your table.

ship2-5The Celebrity ships are marked by a “X” on its chimney. There is a story behind it but I forgot.

ship2-11

These are some of the other huge cruise ships that we saw when we left Miami.

ship2-9Floating hotel/mini city if you consider the number of support staff onboard. I hear that our ship has an incinerator, a water desalination plant, and a diesel-powered electricity generator. What else ?

ship2-10This is another Celebrity ship – the Silhouette which belongs to the same class as our ship.

ship2-12Can cruise ship gets any bigger ? Is there a limit where they become unsafe, unattractive, or uneconomical ? Could there be something like a reverse Moore’s law here? (Moore’s law states that the number of transistors on integrated circuits doubles approximately every 18 months; here the number of rooms on a cruise ship increases by … X ?)
