Eclipse Western Med & Adriatic Coastline
Destination: Europe - Western Mediterranean
I've never found a complaint that was worth writing about. However on this ship I have to say it was the worst entertainment I've seen on 24 cruises. Now I am speaking from an American point of view . Many of the English found the entertainment good but from my understanding from their point of humor (my wife is English) they laughed at the stupidity of the shows. Something new to me! I know some cruise entertainment leaves a lot to be desired but this was below any I've seen. It was also one of the most expensive cruises by anyone we spoke to and I booked about 9 months in advance and was told it went up quite a lot since I booked.
I also must let you know when you book on a Solstice class ship in the category we were in make sure you have the bes away from the balcony . It will give you more usable space. We had the same class cabin on the Solstice and it was spacious. This cabin was the same sq ft but the bed was by the balcony. There is a useless couch that is the put by a closet which cuts down the usable area . I spoke to the person in charge of cabins and they said its how the cabin is configured that reduces the area based on the placing of the bed. All I can tell you that the same cabin on the Solstice was not tight than the Eclpise. The open buffet area is the best idea I've seen on any cruise. No lines a variety of stations to please anyone's taste. No trays to put a little of whatever, this new buffet system is great for breakfast or lunch.Hope this little review helps those future Eclipse cruisers. Less
Cabin review: 1B9235 Deluxe Veranda
Less area in cabins with balcony if bed is by the balcony. The closet space is reduced because of the configuration of the bedding. Bed away from balcony gives more closet area and usable space. Bathrooms are larger and shower area has sliding doors with more area for showers and storage in bathroom.Read All Deluxe Veranda (1B) Reviews >>
