Our 14 night cruise on Eclipse was THE BEST of our 28 cruises taken, (two with Celebrity). The ship is looking terrific, both inside and outside. Constant maintenance has kept her looking like new. The friendly and enthusiastic efforts ... Read more

This was our 10th Celebrity cruise and our 26 cruise overall. Also our second time on the Eclipse. The ship is beautiful and the staff is very friendly and accommodating, yet the Ship is getting a bit worn in certain areas. Our cabin, an ... Read more

The ship is kept in top shape and the food is excellent. My only problem with the food is the nickel and diming with the upgrade packages. For someone who does not drink but would like Greek yogurt at breakfast I would have to pay $5.5 or ... Read more

We've done this itinerary before on this ship. The ship is lovely...the service is wonderful. High marks for the service. We did notice a difference in the food served in the Main Dining Room. Good, but not great. It was great on our ... Read more

We have had several cruises with Celebrity but it is painfully obvious they are trying to lose their "old folks" image & attract younger people by projecting themselves as trendy. Well they hadn't attracted hardly any young ... Read more

We have cruised with Celebrity 35-40 times over the past 15 years, and, for many years, it was our only choice. That's changing. Celebrity was long noted as being a step up from RCC, Princess, etc., with beautiful ships, excellent food and ... Read more

Just for context, we have sailed 21 times, 10 on Celebrity, our 1st 14-night. Definitely a 5-star sailing from embarkation to disembarkation. We would recommend this ship to all sailors -- the greatest bunch of officers and the ... Read more

We spent two weeks on the Eclipse in January and thoroughly enjoyed the stay. The ship has gotten a few new touches and can still use a few more but it's still a lovely ship! Service in the cabins - Concierge Class - continues to be ... Read more

This was our ninth cruise, fifth with Celebrity and second cruise on a Solstice class ship and it confirmed our opinion that they suit us perfectly. Not too big but large enough to have a good range of amenities. However, the management of ... Read more

This was our fifth January cruise on Eclipse so it was like old home week! Thought I'd pass along a few tips. First, since we wanted to be sure we weren't snowed out, we went two days early and rented a car. My first advice...don't drive ... Read more

After 16 years of cruising other lines we tried the Celebrity Eclipse for a Southern Caribbean holiday. What a surprise to find this ship and the cabins to be so nice. We sailed 18 months ago on one of the newest Princess ships and it ... Read more

This was a 14 day cruise down to the ABCs and the Southern Caribbean which we did as a back-to-back with a previous 5 day cruise on the same ship. The arrangements between the two cruises in Miami were excellent - we were escorted off the ... Read more

As my star rating reflects, this was a very good Cruise. The Ship was in excellent condition. The Cabin was kept clean and tidy, Andre and his assistant did a fine job. We eat every night at around the same time, 6.30, in the MDR. The ... Read more

This was our second sailing on this itinerary, having previously sailed 1/2014, our 6th Celebrity cruise, and 9th overall. This is without a doubt our favorite itinerary for our age group (65/58) as the length of the cruise limits the ... Read more

Had cruised twice on the Constellation and enjoyed the Celebrity experience. Made the mistake of trying NCL for two cruises. Although the Getaway was nice the service and quality were no match for the Eclipse. We have been on many ... Read more
