Ship Facts: Celebrity Eclipse Review (by Cruise Critic!) | Celebrity Eclipse Deck Plans
Lovely Holiday

We arrived at Southamton Docks about 11.15 excellent signposting told us where to park. A lorry took our suitcases away and we walked over to check in. I was amazed how smooth this was. Checking in and boarding happened like a dream and before I knew what was happening we were on the ship. We were encouraged Togo up to the restaurant where we had a light lunch, we could have had anything and everything it was Allen offer. Luckily we sat by a couple who been on the .eclipse before who gave us some good pointers and told us what would happen next. At 1pm it was announced out staterooms were ready and so we made our way tour room on Deck 8. What a lovely cabin, plenty big enough for us and with a lovely verandah . Our cases arrived a little while later and we then explored the ship.

We had select diing and therefore went to dinner when we wanted, we never ever queued although we did see queues at times.

We went to the gym most morning and had breakfast in the healthy bar outside the gym which was quiet and did smoothies and sugar free cereals etc. A couple of mornings we had breakfast in our cabin but given we went to to the gym most mornings it was easier to have breakfast after the gym.

On days at sea if you left it too late it could sometimes be tricky getting a sun bed, but for us this was no big deal and if we really wanted a bed we got out there early!

The entertainment was fantastic, something for everybody, apart from the guy who played in the piano bar. he was not our taste, but then you cannot please all of the people all of the time.

We went on two organised tours and they were fine, we preferred to do our own thing.

Our. Cabin steward Gelcy was kindness itself, he was so helpful and often left towels in various shapes on the bed. One evening we came back to find a frog with sunglasses on, which did make us laugh.

I loved the whole two weeks, my Husband got a little bored but then I expected him to. I would happily go back to the Eclipse, the ship, the entertainment and mostly the Staff, they were wonderful
