We chose this cruise for two reasons: First it was of a length that we like, i.e., at least two weeks; second it went to an area of the Caribbean to which we had not yet been. With that in mind we found this cruise to be an absolute ... Read more

We live in Florida but prefer to arrive a night early at the departure port just so we do not rush around at the last minute or in case of mishaps - like this year! We were on the way and had driven about one hour. For some reason, I ... Read more

We are a semi-retired couple from northern NH in the snowy region of the beautiful White Mountains. This cruise has become our regular escape from the cold and snow. We arrived a day early and stayed overnight at a Sleep Inn in Miami ... Read more

A number of people will tell you that your first cruise should be relatively short...but my wife and I decided to go big with a 14 day journey aboard the Eclipse. We loved every second of it! Rather than gushing about the experience, ... Read more

The most difficult part was watching the Celebrity cruise ships come and go in Miami port and having to wait two days to board! From our quick early embarkment to the efficient disembarkation, we enjoyed every minute! We attended every ... Read more

The last time we were on the Celebrity Eclipse was in June 2013, going to St Petersburg from Southampton. The ship, excursions, staff were all great but the entertainment was poor to mediocre. We actually gave up going to the venues. ... Read more

My wife and I decided to take the Eclipse for a spin. Mostly because it was 14 days and stopped at several ports we had not been to. Our previous cruises had been on Royal so any comparisons will be made to them. We had no issues ... Read more

Embarking from Miami was long and tiring. The food in the dining room I found below what I have come to expect on Celebrity. The menus were below par and what was served did not taste good. We found minimal seasoning and very strange ... Read more

Ship was great. Food was great. On-ship service was great - I would give them 6 stars, while I give the phone service 4 stars, so it balances out to 5. Favorite on-ship things included: Pool Volleyball (could have been more of it!), ... Read more
