Ship Facts: Celebrity Eclipse Review (by Cruise Critic!) | Celebrity Eclipse Deck Plans
Scandinavia and Baltic Cruise - Fabulous
This was our second cruise with Celebrity on a Solstice class ship. We cruised on the Eclipse in the Caribbean in February 2010. As before, the ship was beautiful, well designed and spotlessly clean. The cabins are somewhat small but functional and the bathrooms well designed with a reasonably large shower.

The staff were all very friendly and willing to do whatever it took to make the cruise enjoyable. Getting on the ship was a breeze and we were in our cabins around 1:30.

We went one day ahead and stayed at the Jurys Inn in Southampton. The hotel was clean and comfortable. We travelled from Heathrow to Southampton using the National Express Bus service which was easy to locate and economical.

Food in the main dining room was very good although not quite as good as on the Eclipse despite the fact that the menu appeared identical. This would be one very minor criticism as I would have liked a change in the menu. We visited all of the specialty restaurants - Tuscan Grill and Murano were excellent and we couldn't have asked for more. The table side service - lobster as well as dessert was fabulous. The cheese tray was delicious. Qsine was interesting and a fun experience but having done it once now, I wouldn't go again. There is an extensive wine list and many wines at quite reasonable prices. We went to the buffet for most lunches and some breakfasts. The food was really good and I loved the variety especially the Indian food. The food stations are well designed and there are few lineups.

Our shore excursions were very comprehensive and for what we received, good value for the money. When I booked the cruise I felt there were too many sea days but I appreciated every one as the tours can be quite tiring. Joining the excursions was handled very efficiently.
