We flew to Miami and took a taxi to the port, boarding the ship was a breeze in less than 20 minutes we were on board.

When we entered the ship we really like the way the Eclipse look, looks like a 5 star hotel.

Celebrity did a beautiful job decorating this ship, the layout of the ship to the work of art very well done. The pool area is very beautiful and the solarium is a haven to escape the sun and the heat.

The Eclipse is a 122,000 tons we never felt crowded even when in the buffet area.

We took this cruise not so much for the ports of call but for the ship itself, we had done this route so many time that we did not want to get off the ship.

Food on the Eclipse is typical Celebrity, we had good choices to select every night, and it was very tasty and well presented.

The desert menu was not something to brag about but we found something every night to have.

The buffet on the Lido we found it to be very simple and same menu everyday, but food was good and eatable.

The entertainment was good, we had a British lady imitating some of the great singers of our times and did an excellent job.

The production shows were very good especially the circus type act.

Our cabin steward, waiters did an excellent job.

One negative was disembarkation in Miami, not the cruise ship fault but customs, took us almost hour and a half to get off.

But we will do Celebrity any day especially the Solstice Class ships.

Cabin review: Deluxe Veranda 1B

Our cabin was a balcony on the 9th deck and we liked it very much. Having breakfast outside every morning was very nice, Size of the cabin is adequate, nice bathroom with circular shower door witch make it more comfortable. Flat 32" TV and room was very well decorated.

Port and Shore Excursions

Costa Maya to us was a waste of time, after visiting places as Grand cayman and Cozumel we were disappointed on the whole experience. We rented a car and went on our own to visit the town and the beaches and there was nothing to see. Next time will stay on the ship

We took the cruise line tour to see the Mayan ruins of Tulum. We took a boat to Playa Del Carmen and from there they took us on a bus for 2 hours to Tulum. The ruins are very impressive and finding out about the Mayan history made the trip worth it.

Grand Cayman is a very nice port with beautiful beaches. We took a private tour of the island and since we being here before just went sightseeing and shopping.

If you are a scuba enthusiast, then Roatan is for you, We took a private tour and went around the island,not much to see or do.
