Ship Facts: Celebrity Eclipse Review (by Cruise Critic!) | Celebrity Eclipse Deck Plans
Eclipse cruise - Iceland/FaroeIslands/Norwegian Fjords - July 2013
Our first cruise ever.... the cruise experience was wonderful. Everything animate or inanimate, in, on, or about the ship worked perfectly, delivering the experience we had hoped for.

All crew members from the stateroom steward, via waiters, cooks, officers and captain, did their jobs perfectly. I would also include in that praise the unsung heroes: the cleaners and toilet attendants.

We ate in the Oceanview Restaurant for breakfast and lunch, and the Moonlight Sonata Restaurant for dinner. We cannot praise the food quantity, quality and service highly enough.

We attended most theatre evenings. The "cirque de soleil" acrobatics evening was the best. We were somewhat surprised by the modernity of the song and dance shows delivered, since 85% of the clientele were pensioners, even older than us.... We would have liked more variety in the shows. We had an evening of piano playing only, hypnotism only, violin only, comedy only, string quartet only. We would have appreciated a mix of all of them in each show. Overall, we were not very impressed. (Fortunately, Mick Miller, a Brit comedian, did an excellent job in two shows we attended.) We were told by other passengers that Royal Caribbean shows were much better, and Celebrity Cruises is owned by RC....

We attended several "Beyond the Podium" talks. We liked "Henry VIII and Hans Holbein", also the King James Bible history. "The Vikings" was a little flat, perhaps because I knew something of their history already and heard nothing new.

The weather was awful for the first 11 days. Heading out of Southampton in sunshine, the fog descended to the South of Ireland and, together with rain, stayed with us for the next 11 days. We first saw sunshine again when we got to Stavanger in Norway, threequarters of the way through the cruise.

We will go on Celebrity Cruises again, and hopefully, the Eclipse. A lovely ship with a super crew!
