Beautiful Eclipse, amazing staff and fascinating ports...
Destination: Baltic Sea
Although we packed expecting cold weather, we were pleasantly surprised. Tee shirts were all we needed during our times ashore. The itinerary last year was phenomenal, especially St. Petersburg and Tallinn. This year, we were equally enthralled by nature herself - especially the geysers of Iceland and the stunning mountains and waterfalls of Norway.
We are in our 50s and fellow cruisers probably averaged a little older. There were only a few children and they were well behaved. We only had a couple of sea days, which suited me as I am not keen on lots of people everywhere. The daytime More entertainment was adequate. My husband enjoyed the gym and I loved the pods and cabanas on the solarium deck which provided a cozy, peaceful environment for reading.
The evening entertainment was good - we particularly enjoyed the production style shows and the late night comedian.
Food was very good. The aqua spa cafe provided our healthy lunch options most days and the MDR we used for breakfast and dinner. Oceanview cafe has a great range of food but on sea days it was a little too crowded for me, although it was always possible to get a table. We tried Qsine one evening, it was certainly quirky and imaginative but we preferred Murano.
All in all, once again we enjoyed a wonderful two weeks aboard the beautiful Eclipse. We will return to this ship. Less
