Celebrity Eclipse Cruise Review by John Grindon: The GOOD the BAD and the UGLY
Overall Member Rating
The GOOD the BAD and the UGLY
Destination: Europe - Western Mediterranean
Nice welcome glass of "bubbly".We had a Sunset Balcony which looked over the stern so gave us a much broader picture+more sun!!
Cabin was small, and very short of storage space, but overhead lockers helped.
Tea/coffee, and bathroom with fixed shower head. Beds very comfy+nice robes.
Main Dining Room (deck4/5) very beautiful and food generally of good standard.Only problem is that it is CLOSED for LUNCH on Port-days!We had 2 excellent waiters(Chian+Koko) who really doted on us! Buffet(deck14) was very well laid out with wide"alleys" and NO trays! Quality was good, but it always seemed to be cold,which ruined the Pizza/chips especially. Very good choice of Thai,Mexican,Roast,Sushi,Curry. A quite superb Ice Cream Parlor for desserts with No Sugar/Low Cal, and frequent change of flavors. We dined In Tuscan Speciality restaurant for $30 each+$25 corkage for our own wine, as it was my birthday. Food NOT outstanding, but service the best.
Evening More entertainment was extremely disappointing, in an unglamorous theatre.
There was a good male+female singer, but show costumes were poor, and they were not a patch on P&O.
Deck 15 had superb real grass,and Croquet and putting were such fun.
"TRIVIA" quizzes were not nearly as good as P&O but Matt(Canada)+Drew(USA) were good presenters.We did not go to guest lecturers, as the subjects were rather dull...again P&O streets ahead in this area..no I'm not biased to P&O !!! Less
