Ship Facts: Celebrity Eclipse Review (by Cruise Critic!) | Celebrity Eclipse Deck Plans
Celebrity Eclipse's First TransAtlantic cruise
Celebrity's loyalty program allows you to reach 'Elite' level faster than any other cruise line. This level provides the cruiser with use of the Elite level lounge with 2 hours of complimentary drinks and appetizers each evening. The Elite level passenger also receives 90 minutes of free Internet use and 2 bags of laundry washed and folded complimentary.

Beyond the above Celebrity provides wonderful meals whether at assigned seating or at 'select' or anytime seating.

Our cabin was 1401. A C2 cabin of 190 sf and an over-sized balcony of approx. 60 sf. We picked this cabin because it was near the ship's aft and because of the extra 6-9 sf of balcony. A fruit basket, fresh flowers, and evening appetizers were provided. Cabin and dining service was at the highest level.

The singers and dancers in the main show room were some of the most talented that I've seen on the high seas.

From Cherbourg we toured Mont Saint Michel. The tour director on our bus was a French woman who spoke impeccable English and who had the most wonderful presentation for the entire 7 hours.

As with other large cruise ship's, stability on the ocean was excellent.

In summery, Celebrity provides an excellent cruise experience and the 'Eclipse' is a wonderful ship.

Southampton was our departure port. It is a 2 hour train ride from London's Victoria Station. Jury's Hotel was inexpensive and only a $10 taxi ride from the port.

Le Havre is not a great city to tour but it is a good jumping off point for tours of the Normandy beaches.

Cherbourg was only toured by bus on the was to Mont Saint Michel.

Vigo, Spain is a pretty town with a beautiful bay. Tours to Santiago de Compostela can be booked from this port.

Ponta Delgada is a cute town with friendly people in the Portuguese Azores.
