Ship Facts: Celebrity Eclipse Review (by Cruise Critic!) | Celebrity Eclipse Deck Plans
New Year on the Eclipse
As Constellation has been relegated to shorter cruise lengths the Eclipse has taken over our favourite two week itinery.

It is a beautiful ship with stunning designs but it lacks the ambiance and friendliness of Millennium class vessels with an emphasis on selling extras.

We were "Select" diners and on the first night we had booked for 8.15pm but couldn't be seated for another 30 minutes. However, every othernight we went to the other side and Andrea always found us a table (served by Guisti & Bilyana) no matter when we turned up and we always seemed to be around the same friendly diners too.

Cabin was good - bigger shower is definately a plus but storage space has been slightly sacrificed for floor space.

Entertainment was good/poor depending on your taste.Production shows were excellent, Guest Entertainers were of a poor standard and I'll be diplomatic to say that Cruise Director Patti has been given a bad hand to play with. Either that or her lack of appearances around ship was not out of embarrassment.

Ships Officers were also not as friendly as on other cruises.

Embarkation was quick/Disembarkation was slow

Connie had a regular clientele and last year they were bemoaning the ship being replaced on his route. I didn't come across anything to change that view.
