We boarded the Eclipse in Miami on Jan 2nd. This was the first time on a larger ship. We were used to ships with about 650 passengers. Boarding (at noon) in Miami, while the port was extremely busy, went quite seamlessly. Our stateroom ... Read more

My family just finished sailing the Celebrity Eclipse on a 6 day sailing. There is no doubt that the premium customer service and the aura of elegance that Celebrity used to pride itself in is slipping. While this is only my 3rd cruise ... Read more

I love Celebrity and enjoy cruising for the holidays. Highlight of this cruise was in St Marteen when four Celebrshops sat proudly side by side for an overnight. Beautiful site. Even the crew enjoyed this event! My cabin was lively and ... Read more

It left on our 53rd wedding anniversary. All holidays were taken care of including New Years. They had a wonderful Rabbi for Chanukah. Our room steward was the very best. The dining room staff was exceptional. The one big negative was ... Read more

Our friends wanted to take a holiday cruise so we joined them. We're frequent Celebrity cruisers so we knew what to expect. We were able to get a cabin credit, Classic beverage package and free gratuities so it made the decision easy for ... Read more

Hi all, we are just off the Eclipse 10 night cruise (OK, 3 weeks ago). We booked 2 years ago while on the same route but on the Equinox. I didn’t take a lot of pictures and don’t have any food photos as they’ve been ... Read more

This was our 4th year in a row on the Eclipse in the late Nov. mid Dec. time frame. The first 3 cruises were 14 days and this was a 10 day. We love the Eclipse and it is one of our favorite ships. However this year the energy on board ... Read more

Embarkation went well and we were on the ship fairly quickly. The ship looked to be well maintained, and very clean. Our stateroom was clean, but the curtains for the balcony window/door had holes in them Dining in the MDR was a ... Read more

We were looking for a winter getaway to warm climate and relaxation. We could not have been more pleased. We arrived at the port by taxi and were on the ship in less than 30 minutes. The Concierge luncheon in the MDR was lovely, and a ... Read more

Although we had been to several of these ports in the past, we had never sailed the Eclipse. We were in an Aqua class balcony. The service was efficient and friendly, the room steward and the wait staff and the bar service were spot on. ... Read more

My wife and I are avid ballroom dancers. We enjoy dancing on cruises: lots of live music, locations, and fun. People we'd met had told us to try Celebrity. We were not disappointed. Embarkation went well and smooth with no problems; ... Read more

The food and entertainment were great. A bit of chaos at the entrance of the dining room on the first night but not too bad. We booked late and had the late seating but they were able to accommodate our request to change to the earlier ... Read more

This was our 6th sailing on the Eclipse (31 sailings with Celebrity and 46 sailings overall). Embarkation in Miami was a horror story in itself, but NOT the fault of Celebrity. However, as Elite Plus members, we felt we certainly did ... Read more

I have done this cruise several times over the past five years. I would have always rated this cruise in the A to A+ category - this cruise however merits a B- and I am being generous. The embarkation process was the worst nightmare I ... Read more

Embarkation was very hectic, thank our government workers, don't blame Celebrity. Ship is clean and elegant, showing no signs of aging. The artists from Corning Museum of Glass were the most skilled I have seen yet. Wish there was a way ... Read more

Embarkation; We arrived a little later than we normally do and were surprised by the very long lines outside of the terminal. Come to find out there was a problem in the morning getting cleared with customs so it put everything way ... Read more

We chose this cruise on the Eclipse to sail with other family members. We were all celebrating our retirement. We didn't know what to expect since it was our first time on Celebrity. We usually cruise with RCCL and are Diamond with them in ... Read more

We sailed out of Miami November 27, 2016 for 14 nights. This was our third sailing on a Solstice class. The Eclipse still has fuller spaces in the Sky Lounge and the Lawn club, while the Reflection reduced them to construct luxury ... Read more

This was my fourth time on Celebrity, third time on an S class ship. I think they're the perfect size and layout. Because I'm Diamond on Royal Caribbean, I'm also Elite on Celebrity, which gave several great benefits. My cabin attendant ... Read more

The Eclipse is a well maintained ship; the crew is excellent, specifically our cabin attendant Kemjoral, Head Waiter Nur and Assistant Waiter Uman. Our veranda cabin was comfortable and clean, the only drawback was a lack of storage. ... Read more

We had made this same journey for same dates +/- a day or so as last year. Seems kind of crazy to take the same trip twice, but we are so glad we did. We had the best butler ever - Arnell and the staff in Luminae once again made the trip ... Read more

We sailed a year ago on the Eclipse on a similar itinerary and liked the idea of sailing for two weeks without returning to port after seven days so we booked again. Embarkation was a nightmare and if Celebrity just communicated what ... Read more

Ship was 1 1/2 hr late to Miami. Therefore everything was backed up. We arrived at parking place, 10 minutes away, and passengers were still being removed from the ship at 11am. Once we arrived at the ship the check-in lines were ... Read more
