Ship: BUY THE DRINK PACKAGE!!! I cannot stress this enough. We got our drink package included through our travel agency and we couldn't have imagined the trip without it. Orange juice is $4.50, which we had every morning, and specialty ... 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

We chose to go to Southampton the day before our departure & were blessed with hot sunny weather. We stayed at the Mercure Hotel on High St which is an old building & quirky but we enjoyed it. We shopped, as one does, in the Mall ... Read more

This was a second cruise for us on Celebrity to Baltic capitals. We chose to repeat as there is so much to see and do in every port of call that one visit was not enough in many places. Added to that this particular sailing had a 2 night ... Read more
