Celebrity X Eclipse: Celebrity Eclipse Cruise Review by kathy anderson
Overall Member Rating
Celebrity X Eclipse
Destination: Europe - Western Mediterranean
The ship is geared up for specialist restaurants (at an extra cost per person), cocktail bars etc.
This is the first ship to have real grass on board. But why? There is one croquet set and a 'thing' to throw bean bags in. It's not a place to sit and relax.
We were in Aqua class which gives extras but certainly not worth it. Our restaurant was 'Blu'. Food was average. Staff were over attentive.
The cabin was a good More size and clean. The balcony floor wasn't clean and a small drainage channel at the bottom of the balcony glass front was filthy. Never cleaned. There was an upper deck overhang and so the balcony was always in the shade. This suited me but many people like to sit in the sun.
The bed smelled 'musty'. The duvet, bottom sheet and pillow cases were white, clean and soft cotton. The top sheet was a crumpled brown cotton sheet. Most strange. I would have loved thick cotton sheets - something like you would get in a hotel. The ship is only 2 year old, so I'm assuming the bed linen can only be this age too. But it was very 'charity shop like'.
Excursions weren't good and badly organised.
We had trouble finding our luggage when disembarking. Badly organised.
Please don't let me put you off but do think carefully before you book.
This is a new ship and should be a step forward and not a step back. Less
Cabin review: A11563 AquaClass
Balcony had overhang blocking sun. Lovely bathroom. Roomy shower. Large shower head. Lovely bath products. Tea and coffee in room. Adequate storage space. Fridge in room is a minibar - can't fit in anything of your own. Bed is large and very comfortable. Bed linen of guest house quality.Read All AquaClass (A1) Reviews >>
