Celebrity Eclipse Cruise Review by LTC46LTT: No more Celebrity Cruises!!
Overall Member Rating
No more Celebrity Cruises!!
Destination: Eastern Caribbean
Embarkation: Fort Lauderdale (Port Everglades)
As Elite members of Celebrity Cruise Lines, having been on 8+ of their ships, we decided after our cruise on the Eclipse (Nov 9, 2012) that this would be our last one. Celebrity has gone downhill over the past several years with our first disappointment being on the Equinox (April 2011), the sister ship to the Eclipse.
The food at the buffet for breakfast and lunch was always the same and never hot. Our first seating dining was close to deplorable with each night's dinner selection getting worse from the previous ones. What has happened to the reputation Celebrity had for years for their 5 star dining??? It is now barely a 2 star!!
The entertainment was much more varied and enjoyable on the Eclipse than the Equinox and is one of the few pluses on this cruise. Cabins were clean and comfortable but we think the public rooms are bland and boring for such new ships. We agree with other reviews of the Eclipse that the debarkation was painful.
The long More lines to get off the ship and thru customs/luggage retrieval were awful and we must have had to walk over a mile from the ship thru all of this. With many elderly passengers on this ship who were using walkers and wheelchairs, we can't imagine how they survived thru this process! Less

Cabin review: 1A9207 Deluxe Veranda 1A
Cabin 9207 was comfortable with a nice private balcony. It was clean and promptly serviced. If anything could be improved, it would be more drawer space. The closet was big enough. It was fairly close to elevators and we didn't have any problems with noise.Read All Deluxe Veranda 1A (1A) Reviews >>
