Cruise to nowhere

We boarded on March 1 for a B2B that would end in San Diego. Unfortunately due to the pandemic, the 2nd cruise was canceled and we were told we would be disembarking in Santiago, Chile. At that point, we were ...

Poor ship, dangerous medical arrangements

Wanted to see South America for the first time. The ship's décor is dated and tired especially the ocean view café, cabins and the lounges. The guest relations staff are mediocre and mostly not good at dealing ...

"All hat and no cattle"

Ship is beautiful and cabin was fine. Service was good in restaurants and bars. Cabin attendant was excellent. But from there it was mostly disappointing. The food was bland and frequently tastless, despite a ...

Better than "ok" - just not "great"

This was my 7th cruise. First on Celebrity. Previously, I had found that Holland was the best I'd been on, FAR superior to Princess and Royal Caribbean. I'd cruised solo, with family, and with a GF. First off, ...

Good ship, inconsistent shore excursions

We sailed on the Eclipse about 8 years ago and knew the ship was due for refurbishment next year so we were concerned it may be a bit worn about the edges but to our surprise it was very well maintained. We had a ...
