Ship Facts: Celebrity Eclipse Review (by Cruise Critic!) | Celebrity Eclipse Deck Plans
Celebrity Eclipse
My wife and I are in our early sixties and "young at heart" we sailed on the Eclipse from Fort Lauderdale on 9th March 2013 for a 2week southern caribbean cruise.

Our outbound flight from Manchester to Heathrow was delayed by one hour due to fog in London, we therefore missed our connecting flight (209 British Airways)to Miami, after flights being rearranged we were flown to Washington DC for an overnight stay in the Westin hotel, we then had a flight from Miami to Fort Lauderdale on the Saturday morning departing at 08.15, we eventually got to the ship and embarkation was smooth.

The ship itself is Ok apart from the outdoor pool(s) area which reminded us of a Butlins holiday camp,the food was Ok but nothing to shout about, as for the entertainment this in our opinion was poor, it appeared that the age of the majority of guests were late sixties to seventy+ and this reflected on the entertainment offered.

The best entretainment was Perry Grant the pianist whom although repetertive was funny, we went to the Quaser disco late evening on a couple of occasions and the place was practically empty, the ship was like the Marie Celeste after 11.00pm hardly anybody about, all in bed we assumed!

We were never offered a drink whilst on the deck or in the Oceanview cafe even to pay for one!

Mini-bar was locked on night before disembarkation so if you required a drink you had to contact room service!

Disembarkation was a nightmare due to cut backs by USA customs, only four officers to cater for 2,000+ guests this took about 2hours, we were given a "Day room" at the Miami Sheraton, we eventually arrived at the Sheraton at 13.30 and was told we had to vacate the room by 16.00, the hotel itself was very nice with a lovely outdoor restaurant area by the river.

All in all a great itenary but not impressed with the ship or entertainment,in future we will stick with Royal Caribbean.
