Alex’s FB review:

I'm back from the Five Go To Sea conference/cruise/adventure. I'm not sure what to call it. I think I'll just settle for amazing! That describes it the best.

I'm not sure where to begin or what to include in this report. Going into the cruise I didn't know what to expect. I knew cruise ships were enormous, but the Celebrity ship we were on dwarfed anything I had imagined. I looked up it's dimensions. It's 127 feet wide and 1047 feet long. Some people think in terms of football fields. I translate dimensions into riding arenas. The ship is twice the width of my indoor arena and more than eight times as long! Now take those dimensions and stack up 14 floors of guest accommodations, restaurants, theaters, pools, meeting rooms, dance floors, lounges, spas and all the other amenities a cruise ship has to offer, and you'll begin to get a sense of the size of the ship. And however big it is from the ground floor up, there's that much again below to accommodate the crew, kitchens, engines, fuel, water, food storage and everything else that it takes to provide for well over 4,000 people. My barn looks like a big building sitting by itself on the side of a hill, but it would be easily swallowed up inside the belly of the Reflection.

 I know heading into the cruise many people were concerned about being seasick. I can now tell you that yes, you do feel the pitch and roll of the ocean. Were people sea sick? On the first day some people were definitely feeling a bit queasy. The experienced travellers like Ken Ramirez had taken precautions and were wearing motion sickness patches.  more ......
