Celebrity Eclipse Cruise Review by Gaynor: Cork 3 May 2011 from Southampton
Overall Member Rating
Cork 3 May 2011 from Southampton
Destination: Europe - British Isles & Western
We liked the stateroom and the quality build of the ship. It certainly has a wow factor.
iLounge was brilliant with really good staff - computer courses were good and entertaining too.
Smoking - there is a no smoking policy which does not appear to be enforced. People were smoking on their balconies throughout the cruise. Smoking is permitted in the Sky Observation Lounge in a corner on the port side which makes the whole lounge unusable for non-smokers.
Food - (in the main dining room)disappointing. One starter was just a wedge of iceberg lettuce with an ordinary tomato sliced over it - no other garnish. Lobster bisque tasted as though it came out of a packet. Did not dare to try the speciality restaurants.
Oceanview cafe - beverage stations were badly laid out leading to queues of frustrated people. Supplies of teabags kept running out.
Staff - not very motivated, some quite surly/miserable.
Cruise Director - where did they get him from? More I've seen amateur MCs do better.
Entertainment - otherwise very enjoyable. Less
