The Alcoves on Celebrity Cruises for Family Travel
Alcoves available on Celebrity Reflection and Celebrity Silhouette.
I highly recommend! Why? This might not be the way to keep the cost down on your vacation, but if you have the opportunity to get an Alcove on top of Celebrity Reflection or Celebrity Silhouette, it's a fantastic way to spend a day at sea.
You will absolutely love them! It's the best way to avoid searching for a lounge chair by the pool, finding an open table to have lunch by the Mast Grill, or constantly looking for the rest of the family to join you. By booking ahead you'll have this prime piece of real estate for an entire day and can peacefully enjoy the sun and ocean breeze. The Porch is right across the lawn to enjoy an upscale lunch (they'll even pack it "to go".) The best part is the rental is from 9 AM to 9 PM, so you can head in to have dinner and then find your peaceful alcove waiting for you. Enjoy the stars with a glass of wine and dessert - it's the perfect "secret" spot!
When you arrive to claim your Alcove on the day of your reservation, you'll find each personalized with a guest's name. Just look for your designated spot and the butler should arrive shortly to get your day started. You can call the butler from a phone inside of the Alcove throughout the day if you need anything. They can bring additional food or beverages throughout the day (may be extra fee for food selections) or open and close the awning depending on the sun, as well as answer any questions about ports you are visiting, suggest a specialty restaurant, order a spa service for you, and more.

Beautiful grass in front of the ocean...where else can you see that? The grass is also perfect for sunbathing.Even if you don't reserve an Alcove for the day, enjoying the green lawn is unique. Have a seat in the oversized deck chairs or bring some pool towels over and lay out on the plush grass.
Who wouldn't have fun sitting on these chairs?
Virtual Hint: When cruising with a family, an alcove is the perfect meeting spot! Even if your kids run off to enjoy an activity or the basketball court, you'll have a great centralized place for everyone to meet back or leave their belongings.
Plus, on the Celebrity Reflection, you'll be only steps away from some of the best grilling at sea. The Lawn Club Grill is a delicious specialty restaurant where guests can watch and even participate in grilling amazing flatbreads and more.
