Ship Facts: Celebrity Eclipse Review (by Cruise Critic!) | Celebrity Eclipse Deck Plans
First Time Cruise
This being our first cruise we didn't have any expectations and have been so impressed by what we experienced.

Fantastically impressive ship inside and out, so clean and tastefully decorated. Lot's of areas to socialise or just be quiet.

We enjoyed spending time in Cafe al Bacio, being looked after by Martha and Barbara. In the evening after dinner we would go to the SunSet Bar and be served by Dev, lovely area to get lost in the views and the fresh air.

Food - Moonlight Sonata (main dining area) Brilliant, tasty, artistic and varied dinners, great characters for the waiters, very attentive but discreet. Watch out for Eric one of the sommeliers lovely and funny.

The only "speciality restaurant" we went to was Tuscan Grill, WOW! the food here is the absolute best, with the added bonus of having the best view on the ship. Great waiter was Mehmet.

Our suite 1237 - deck 10 - Portside was beyond amazing, so much room and comfort. Our Butler Boris was so helpful and knowledgable along with Michelle the Stateroom Assistant made our holiday go without any hitches.

Port stops all very good, unfortunately because of the Portuguese Pilots strike we detoured to Cadiz. Pleasant and very pretty place, a welcome alternative.

All the shore excursions we booked with Celebrity had fantastic guides, funny and knowledgable. Especially a lady who took us on the Beautiful Portofino trip. She was a very mature lady but she obviously spent a lot of time there as a youngster (she knew Rex Harrison!) and knew so much, walking up steep inclines with no bother. When it came to get the coach back, we waited in our respective groups awaiting transport, when the first coach arrived she did no more than go straight up to the driver and commandeered the coach for us - haha! love her.

Embarkation and disembarkation went smoothly and well organised.

All in all an absolutely fantastic holiday, thoroughly recommend this to everyone and we will be back on one soon.
