I chose this Celebrity Eclipse because I like Celebrity and because this cruise was supposed to go to Bermuda overnight. However, because of a bad storm we had to by-pass this port and move on across the Atlantic. The ship's design was ... Read more

The buffet is good but a little repetitive after the first week. Main dining room is efficient if you do not ask for anything not on the menu. If you do, then be prepared to wait a long time! The Bistro on Five is not worth the ... Read more

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

I chose the 4/3/16 14 day cruise because the original itinerary had Aruba, Curacao and also Bonaire. However they deleted Bonaire and substituted an overnight in Curacao. Personally we didn't utilize the overnight but stayed on the ship. ... 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
