Travelled with friends for the first time with Celebrity, probably the last as we compared it with many other cruise lines we have sailed with. Decent enough ship, but only 1 theatre and 3 small pools. Initial muster station drill was a ... Read more

Having been on many cruises both with Celebrity and RCI we always thought Celebrity had the edge but now we are beginning to think this is not the case. Embarkation at Southampton went well, we are Elite members. Once on board it was a ... Read more

This was how it was presented to us and to some 2750 others: the only chance this year of a short trip on the Celebrity Eclipse, sailing from Southampton to Le Havre. And Back. To see what the line was like and what the ship was like. ... Read more

Have previously been on the same mini cruise on Eclipse two years ago and recommended it for a friends birthday after having a great time. What a mistake. It was like a completely different cruise and would not recommend it at all. From ... Read more

I must firstly report what is tantamount to a lie. In late March Celebrity advertised that the free drinks package would cease by 31/3, so I booked before April. Come 1st April their standard offer included the free drinks package plus ... Read more

I couldn't quite give this cruise 5. Having previously cruised with P&O, Royal Caribbean, Princess, HAL and NCL, we were expecting Celebrity to be the next step up. In terms of the ship, it was. Very bright, airy, spacious, well ... Read more
