Ship Facts: Celebrity Eclipse Review (by Cruise Critic!) | Celebrity Eclipse Deck Plans
Med Cruise
Will try not to repeat other reviews.

Select dining turned out to be a good choice. WE usually went for a sharing table of 6 or 8 and met a great cross section of our fellow passengers. If you like to chat over a meal this is the best choice as you do not tire of your tablemates. The waiters were marvellous and helped us with special diabetic requirements.

The shows were both exciting and disappointing. The noise levels whatever Celebrity say are far to high for the average age group of the passengers. The slack rope walker in the Eclipse show is one of the best acts I have ever seen on a cruise. You have to be lucky with the speciality acts as they vary from cruise to cruise.

Cabins are spacious and comfortable but drawer space is limited. If you are tall you can use the cupboards above the bed. My wife could not reach them.

Bathrobes are provided and large deck towels to use on the balcony.

Major gripe is the smoking permitted in SKy lounge, one of the best spaces on the ship.

In my opinion too much good space is given over to the speciaty restaurants which are only used in the evening. Why not use one of these as a bridge room by day. Nice windows, card room has no view at all.

Ocean view cafe can get very crowded at times. We often went to the restaurant.

Cruise staff are great. Do not miss Carls 3 talks on Titanicor Danny Bergs uinventive quizzes.
