Price Gouging of Ancillary Items: Celebrity Eclipse Cruise Review by John Blakey
Overall Member Rating
Price Gouging of Ancillary Items
Destination: Baltic Sea
Our cabin was very good and well laid out and the service of the cabin attendants was very helpful and professional. The same could be said of our wait staff at the restaurants.
The on board entertainment seemed to our eyes very well run and was most enjoyable.
We were very pleased with the various eating venues and what they had on offer.
What surprised us were the extra costs that went with this cruise. For example the $US12 per pay each for crew gratuities. Why? We tipped the wait staff and cabin attendants at the end of the cruise anyway as they impressed. The cost of liquor and laundry was extortionate and $US65 for 30 minutes of wifi More - was an eye opener. On shore there was free wifi at almost all tourist venues including for goodness sake, our tour bus in St Petersburg.
As indicated above we are new to cruising and I would be interested in other travelers views on these costs and what the policy is with other ship operators. We thought they were extortionate. Less
