Ship Facts: Celebrity Eclipse Review (by Cruise Critic!) | Celebrity Eclipse Deck Plans
Our Baltic Adventure
This our first major cruise was the only way we felt we could visit the cities of Northern Europe/Baltic. We were advised to book Aqua class and very glad we did. Blu was the best venue for eating..smaller portions beautifully displayed and served by staff who seemed to genuinely enjoy interacting with us. Tried Murano one nite and found the food great but service attentive to the point of being annoying. So many staff members kept interrupting our conversation to ask how we were enjoying the food that it detracted from our dining experience.

Our balcony room was well appointed...the storage area over the bed was hard to get at but the bathroom was great.

Entertainment was spotty..some good and some bad, particularly the female lead singer who screamed her way through some lovely songs.

Tours that we took, particularly St. Petersburg, were good. Brugge and Warnemunde were not much to see but pleasant. Stockholm you can do on your own...the hop on/hop off boat first thing to the Vasa Museum gets you there before the crowds. Then do whatever else strikes your fancy. In Helsinki, we did the Ipod Walking Tour...outstanding and you can pick your spots there but do it at your own speed. The Rock Church is a must. Our St Petersburg guide for the two day tour was great...good English and she hit the hilites. Tallinn is a nice walk from the ship and lots of shops and restaurants to sample at your leisure. Copenhagen is incredibly congested. We took the shuttle to downtown but with hindsight should have walked from the ship following the ship provided map and we would have seen the main sights ending at the Tivoli Gardens and taken a cab back to the ship.

Embarkation and disembarkation were flawless. Overall, a great trip!
