Cabin 8258 - 16 night cruise on the Eclipse
This is was our 1st time on the Eclipse but have cruised on it's sister ship Equinox so the lay out was the same.Our cabin 8258 was mid ship and although fairly near to the lifts it was quiet. The cabin was immaculate and the plus point was that the Balcony was slightly bigger as it was at the start/lead up to 'The Hump' The food at the Buffet for Breakfast and Lunch was of an extremely high standard. I can recommend the Curry station which was my favourite and we became addicted to the wide variety of Ice cream on offer each day at Lunch. We chose to dine at 2Nd seating 8.30pm as 6.30pm was a bit too early. We did ask at the time of booking (we did this direct with Celebrity) to be seated on a LARGE table but when we checked upon boarding - we had a table for 6! We decided to get in line with all the other people wanting to change tables and were eventually moved to a table for 8 We had some great dinner companions so that made our cruise. We always choose to sail with Celebrity for More
their high standards and we weren't disappointed.
On the Negative side... I have to say that the thing lacking on these Solstice Class ships is a place to meet for a drink and may be have a dance before dinner. The only place we found was opposite Guest Relations on Deck 3 but the space is very limited and gets packed in the lead up to dinner.Deck 4 has the Martini/Ice Bar but it was standing room there too. I hope they sort something out as it did spoil it a bit for us. On deck 5 there is a Cocktail Bar which is near to the Photo Shop that lacked atmoshphere and rarely used - during our 16 nights we only saw 2 or 3 couples use it but did notice some of the officers sitting there so that goes to prove how quiet it was!

Cabin review: Celebrity Eclipse Deluxe Ocean View W/Veranda Continental Deck (6)
Cabin 8258 Good Size and immaculate. Mid ship & close to the elevators. It wasn't noisy Balcony was slightly bigger due to the start/ lead up to the Hump. The bathroom had a great shower with proper shower doors - (hate those curtains)and was spacious and spotless. The bed is nearest to the bathrooom. The bed is high enough to be able to put suitcases under and the bed was quite wide too. The only down side was lack of drawers - there are a couple of cupboards above the bed but they weren't easy to get to.
