Having previously cruised with P&O and Cunard we thought we would give Celebrity X a try especially as it receives very good reviews. We booked a year in advance as the cruise was within the peak season and likely to sell out, my wife ... Read more

Overall, the ship and the cruise was incredible. Getting on to the ship was smooth and hassle-free, it only took us half an hour tops to get from the port onto the ship. We were greeted with champagne and canapés, a luxury not fond ... Read more

I cannot agree with the gushing comments about Eclipse. We cruised on her in 2010 and again this last fortnight. The difference in quality was marked. The food in the Moonlight Sonata was poor. Silver service has gone. The beef was ... Read more

A couple of years ago we did a Baltic cruise with Celebrity from Amsterdam and vowed that if we ever saw a cruise with 3 days in St Petersburg we would take it. So we did! As background information on us, we are British expats who live ... Read more

This was our 6th cruise on Eclipse out of Southampton and, unless they add some different itineraries, it might well be our last for a few years. This will be a big disappointment to us since Eclipse is still our favourite ship, and ... Read more
