Transatlantic April 2012: Celebrity Eclipse Cruise Review by xdoesnotmarkthespot
Overall Member Rating
Transatlantic April 2012
Celebrity did a "bang up" job of lining up speakers for this transatlantic cruise.
Stateroom was just fine, however, being as how we do not like to sleep under a heavy comforter, it would have been nice to have a "king sized" blanket and sheets available.
Veranda got very little use, mainly due to the weather.
A little disappointed in the main dining room food....did not feel it was up to Celebrity standards.
Cafe food was often cold, and often times tables were not cleared very quickly.
Theatre productions ranged from mediocre to very good.
There were over 800 of us that were Captain's Club "Elite" members, but still the service at the "Elite" functions (Social Hours) was very good. Had to be difficult for Captain's Club staff to handle that many "Elite" cruisers.
Ponta DelGada, Azores was an interesting port.....inexpensive tours to be had just inside the terminal.
A great disappointment More to miss the primary reason for booking this cruise, which was the port in Ireland (due to weather), but was pleasantly surprised by La Coruna, Spain....enjoyed the port very much.
LaHavre, France, didn't seem to offer much, but a bus trip to Honfleur, where we spent the day, was excellent.
Southampton was great for debarkation...arrangements to clear customs were provisioned for by haveing customs agents board the ship a couple days earlier and process everyone that was disembarking at the Southampton port. Less
Cabin review: 2C9139 Deluxe Veranda (partially obstructed view)
Nice stateroom, but unfortunately not laid out for maximum utilization of space. The heavy comforter supplied for the "beds together" is just way too heavy and warm for us to sleep under. We requested a couple blankets and sheets. We were provided with 2 "single" bed blankets and sheets, not a king blanket and sheet (which would have been our preference).Read All Deluxe Veranda (partially obstructed view) (2C) Reviews >>
Best cruise line we've been on...
Another Great Crystal Cruise
