An enjoyable 14 day cruise. The ship is very attractive and well maintained. This was our tenth cruise and third on Celebrity. Embarkation was quick and smooth - the Port of Miami seems to do it right! Disembarkation (Easter Sunday) was long delayed due to a shortage of port customs personnel. Our cabin steward was excellent and the Blu restaurant (Aqua Class Stateroom) was a real highlight. The service was excellent and food quite good. The fellow Aqua passengers were enjoyable - we met a number of other couples and looked forward to seeing them again throughout the cruise. We ate in Blu for both breakfast and dinner every day and only ventured into the Ocean Cafe for lunch - always crowded and similar aggressive behaviors we've witnessed on other cruise lines. The main dining room on sea days was nice for lunch. We skipped the specialty restaurants (the up-charge for Qsine was $45 per person) and hard to justify given the quality of Blu. The entertainment was fairly good (the production shows: "Topper" and "Euphoria" were very good). "Rock City" was tired and the music was not well chosen for the singers' voices. In general the volume was too loud (and singers voices tended to be "screechy"). Many other passengers had similar complaints. The solo violinist, Amy Lee, and vocalist, Jane Curry, were exceptional. The string duo, Decameron, were also very good. We listened to them in the Ensemble Lounge before dinner each evening - very talented with an ever changing program. The Corning Glass Works was great - we viewed the demonstrations 6 or 7 days. Unfortunately, Celebrity is ending its relationship with Corning and changing to a "revenue generating" company with passengers attempting their own "glass blowing". We contracted for 4 of the ship's excursions - three "Highlights" tours of Barbados, St. Lucia and Antiqua and a "Sail and Snorkel" on Aruba. All 4 were a miss. Most of the 3 to 3.5 hours on the 3 land tours were spent traveling on bumpy, twisty island roads with two - 10 minute stops to view the sights. A real waste of time (and money). The bus broke down on Barbados and one of the passengers vomited on the Antigua bus (it was that rough of a ride). The Aruba "Sail and Snorkel" was also unfortunately a miss - nothing to see and a long catamaran ride to the snorkel location. We chose our own excursion on Bonaire ("BonaireVistaTours" which was recommended by TripAdvisor) - about 40% the price of similar Celebrity excursions and much better quality. The health and fitness gym was nice - we both used it on 7 of the 14 days. Nice equipment and very well maintained. Read Less

We went back to Celebrity from last 2 cruises with RCL. Last cruise on Celebrity was Equionox in 2015 things change. Recently on RCL Anthem and Grandeur. Celebrity has better food but service on Grandeur was better. Lack of Caribbean music on Eclipse. Bands were decent but very repetitive songs. Mostly current but no cruise feeling. Activities were lacking. Age of passengers were elderly. We might give cruising a break. Elite lounge food offered was poor. Often waived off waiters. Declining benefits. We usually enjoyed the snacks. Drink selection is limited. Dancing by pool rare. When offered well attended. Mention that to cruise director and staff got the brush off. MDR repetitive menu. Some good meals. Some actually left me hungry. Waitstaff excellent. Miss Yvonne and Paul were excellent. Room steward saw him 3 Times in 14 night cruise. Great room. No towel animals. Tidy room. Gym sales pitch city. Charge for Zumba and yoga. Avoid it and walk out side. Did my own yoga on lawn. Captain Leo great. Activities staff great but not enough activities. So sad Christine was excellent with pool side line dancing but only offered 3 Times . Many times I felt like I could not wait to get off ship. Never felt this way before. Limited activities and declining quality has my wife and I looking into other vacation options. Sadly I feel cruise focus is more on drinking packages. How many enjoy fat loud guys drunk by the pool. Alcohol impairment is a real problem. Wishing for a sobering mirror for these folks. Looking like a local bar at sea. Pathetic. Read Less

We chose this to return to Bonaire. Also, because it was Celebrity. The plus was our first trip to Curacao. What a beautiful place. The ship was very clean. Dining was very good Everywhere Entertainment was top notch. Celebrity has so upped their game. We have been on Celebrity 13 times and many were two weeks. We have traveled with them for 23 years and we see how hard they have worked on entertainment. I felt the cruise director was excellent Service was exceptional. The staff never runs out of smiles and their willingness to help It was the best embarcation ever. We were off 30 minutes earlier then predicted It was exciting seeing the captain and cruise director as we exited Certainly made it more personal Our return to Bonair was great. The clear water and visible fish along the shore is exciting I would return there again Thank you for a wonderful cruise. Read Less

Live music was superb. Orchestra outstanding in quality and played almost every day, often multiple times and in different venues. Most of guest entertainers were excellent. Production shows not to everyone's taste in music but cast of singers and dancers one of the best I've ever seen on a cruise ship. Visibility and involvement of officers outstanding (Captain Leo, Hotel Director Andrea, Cruise Director Eddy, Activities Director Giuseppe). Food excellent, especially specialty restaurants. Qsine had the friendliest service and great variety. Murano very sophisticated, service more restrained but superb food and presentation. Food in Tuscan Grill good, but a bit below the other two. Extra time in Curacao a big plus. We love the ABC islands. Cabin smallish but adequate, but could use more drawer space. Cabin attendants superb; immaculate cleaning twice daily. Bar service and choices in Elite lounge: more limited hours and beverage choices than the comparable Diamond Lounge on RCCL. Loyalty host Dave Perrien extremely friendly and available. Other nice loyalty perks such as high tea, wine tasting and free bag of laundry. Ship in excellent condition although no "wow" features. I'd definitely go again. Read Less

We wanted to take a cruise with ETA which allows for motorcycle. This was the ship they were using. However, we had taken previous cruise with Celebrity Eclipse and had a wonderful time. Will definitely go again. Service, food, entertainment and the people were all friendly and appeared happy with their jobs. The various venues on the ship provided variety throughout the days and nights. Cabin has plenty of storage. The shower was larger than other cruise ships we have traveled. Plenty of hot water. Getting on and off the ship at the ports was very easy and no long lines. Main dining room service and food was very good with good presentation. The waiters were very attentive and knew exactly what our drink of choice was for dinner. The wine sommenier was amazing. He would remember the wine of choice as well a make perfect recommendations. We will definitely travel with Celebrity again. Eclipse is great ship....it would depend on the ports but it is a wonderful ship. Read Less

The drier to choose this cruise was the destinations. We still wanted to go to the ABC islands and this cruise had the best itinerary on a cruise line we trust in delivering an experience that would not shortfall of our expectations. It is worth to mention though, that over time there was a decline in the quality of their food but I still would rate it further up than many of the their competitors. On the other had it is worth mentioning that we received great support throughout the ranks, with special effort from everybody involved to organize and support a special dining event for a larger group! - Something not necessaarily supported by all cruise-lines. Organization in the ports was well organized and worked for us nicely. Entertainment contained some production shows that were pretty nice, but if we want to have a great entertainment experience we prefer the Oasis class of ships from RCCL. Read Less

Jose, our cabin steward for 1505, was generous, pleasant, and extremely good at keeping our cabin clean and organized! Our Blu restaurant waiters, Tyrone and Ljuben, made our evening meals very special and were a good team. Tyrone was a consummate professional, always very concerned with our well-being and satisfaction. Ljuben was also professional, but showed us a wonderful sense of humor, and remembered our preferences...in my case, Creme Brullee. I had doubts about whether I would like Blu, which was for the Aqua class passengers, and had a reputation for “healthier” food. Well, the food was tasty, and I still gained weight! They put my doubts to rest! Gilly and the Girl were magical....perhaps the best non-main theater act I have seen in more than 100 days of cruising! Michael Redden was also wonderful, and the James Taylor show they performed together was a highlight! We also greatly enjoyed the four talks given by Eddie, the cruise director, as they were amusing and informative. The Eclipse orchestra was excellent, but the saxaphone player was a standout! We weren’t particularly happy with the production shows, other than the closing show, Euphoria, which was wonderful! We don’t fault the talented cast, but all three earlier shows were...I don’t know..avant garde? We didn’t really get them, and we weren’t alone. My suspicion is that it is an age issue. We are in our mid-sixties, and I assume the corporate entertainment designers are attempting to appeal to a younger market. The relaxation room, close to our cabin was a wonderful, and often private, delight! The Solarium was such a pleasant place! I enjoy a late night meal, and was a bit disappointed at being limited to pasta. Actually, though, the late night food selection and the baffling production shows were my only complaints, and I am sure both of those things are decided at a corporate level. Everyone who serves, entertains, or manages on this ship did an amazing job! We came away feeling very pampered, and looking forward to another cruise! Read Less

We always wanted to go on a 2 week cruise, Celebrity Eclipse had just the cruise we were seeking. We have been a loyal Norwegian cruisers for many years, Not any more From the time we got on board to the time we departed, it was all very special. We have never experienced the personal attention given to us by all the crew. The cleanliness of the ship, our cabin attendant, the wait staff, the lounge staff, guest relations staff and of course the Officers, made our time on board feel like we were Royalty and that is not an exaggeration. I do recall many of the names of the crew, but I will not list them here, since there are so many. The entertainment was superb, the food was outstanding along with the servers. There are so many items to point out, that I would take up a lot of space, however I would be remiss if I did not mention the Adults only pool area.. To sum it up, Kudos, Kudos, Kudos to CELEBRITY CRUISE LINE!!! Thank you again for a wonderful cruise, Dave Scanlan Read Less

We booked this sailing because all the ports except St. Martens had not been visited. I was able to snorkel the reef at Klein Bonaire which was gorgeous! All the ports were great! The Eclipse Captain Michael, her Cruise Director Eddy were great. The entertainment was ok but has improved ! We had select dining and the staff worked to accommodate 12 of us traveling together. Food was very good in dining room, buffet and Qsine! We had concierge stateroom on 10th deck. Our room attendant did everything he could to make us feel at home!! He seemed to always around!!! Embarkation and Disembarkation was very smooth ! Worse part was getting a large enough van for all our luggage but wait was not long!! Amazing part of an Outstanding cruise the IT Manager Richard and his assistant Rolondo. Richard gave classes on all types of subject such as Google Photos and Gmail! Room was absolutely packed when Richard gave a class! Read Less

This 14 night cruise of the Southern Caribbean is a Caribbean cruise like no other. It stands out among the many Caribbean cruises for many reasons, the length of the cruise, the ports visited, numerous sea days to enjoy the Caribbean sun and all while on a great ship the Celebrity Eclipse. Most Caribbean cruises that I am familiar with are a simple 7 days of the eastern Caribbean or the western Caribbean. This cruise not only differs from the same old ports but provides a very nice 14 days onboard. The ports of Bonaire, Curacao, Aruba, Barbados, St. Lucia, St. Kitts and St. Maarten provide a nice alternative to San Juan, St. Thomas, Cozumel, Jamaica and the proverbial private port or island. The Islands visited provide diverseness in scenery, beaches, port towns, tours etc. On our cruise we experienced kayaking and snorkeling in the mangroves of Bonaire, the wilderness of Curacao on an ATV, sailing the blue waters of Aruba and Barbados, relaxing mud baths of St. Lucia as well as tours of all the islands visited. On most every island there is more you can do on a second or third trip to them. Celebrity provided us two amazing days in Aruba as we spent an overnight there. With 5 sea days there was plenty of time to enjoy the sun around the pool, partake of the many Celebrity Life activities, get in your exercise to burn off those extra calories from the fine cuisine or simply chill out on your own veranda. Trivia, lectures, glass shows, classes of various kinds and group activities all made these days simply fly by all too quickly. As always Celebrity provided fine entertainment each day and evening around the ship. The production shows were outstanding. The other nightly shows all proved entertaining, I did not miss one of them. Cruise Director Eddy Jenkins had a unique style that I particularly enjoyed, entertaining without going over the top. The various musical groups onboard were all outstanding with the exception in my opinion of a group called Sound Stars, while the musician were good the lead female singer was, how can I put this, hard on the ears. I simply could not stand listening to her but to be fair many enjoyed themselves dancing to the various numbers they attempted. The production show Euphoria is arguably one of the best production shows on the high seas, reason enough to sail on this grand ship. We bought a 5 night specialty dining package on tis cruise so I skipped my usual negotiation for a better price. We did two nights in Tuscan, two nights in Murano and one in Qsine. We dined in in Tuscan the first and last nights that provided a nice beginning and end of the cruise. Qsine was a group activity with a cruise critic roll call group which is always fun, we had 15 participating on this cruise. I cannot give enough accolades to the ships staff, from the captain on down all were outstanding. We had a normal veranda room and though a little tight is was well maintained and the bed very comfortable. Our room steward kept it spotless and took good care of us. Waiters in the specialty restaurants and main restaurant provided outstanding service throughout the cruise. The menu provided ample selections to choose from at every meal. The quality of my food was also simply outstanding. When we visited the buffet (which was not often as it was always difficult to find seating for four) the food selection was ample and good. I did partake of the pizza as it was freshly handmade and reasonably good. Eating venues around the ship were equally good. In short this ship well run and well maintained. The staff exceeded my expectations at every turn. The itinerary is a very good one for a Caribbean cruise and it is too bad it appears celebrity is not going to repeat it in the future. Would I cruise on the Celebrity Eclipse again, absolutely. Read Less

This was our last cruise as Select members of Captains Club...next cruise we're Elite. I'm really impressed with Celebrity. We have cruised on almost a dozen lines and both of us conclude that Celebrity offers the best value of any other. Some things have disappeared or been minimized...but when did that come as a surprised to any consumer? The Eclipse is a lovely ship well maintained by a crew that takes pride in their ship. It is obvious that the crew work as a team, which greatly benefits its' passengers. The ports were varied and provided enough variety. With 2 sea days at both the beginning and end of the cruise, passengers had an excellent chance to recharge drained batteries. We began each day with an energetic 2 mile walk on the track followed by breakfast selected in the buffet but eaten in the far rear of the buffet in a rather nice open air setting. Breakfast selection was excellent...anything you could reasonably think of. Fresh fruit was especially tasty. We often had lunch in the Aqua Spa café. Portion control was evident and food choices were all tasty. Custom made salads with lovely ingredients. They also make smoothies here. The setting for eating lunch here could have been improved. Kind of crowded with poor views. We had most dinners in the main dining room. This room is on 2 levels...the lower level for fixed dining and the upper level for guests who chose the "select" dining option...(us). So let me begin by saying that when you are on the upper level and look outward then downward to the floor below, you see probably 500-700 people all eating at the same time. That Celebrity can get hot meals delivered as ordered to that many guests, with the bonus of servers who are both efficient and friendly is a tribute to their Corporation. In terms of the main dining room, there are 2 areas that can use improvement. Firstly if you choose 7:15 as your preferred time, you are in a very popular time slot, and if you are in a party of 4 or more, you are liable to be in for a lengthy delay for your table. One night 6 of us waited almost an hour although mostly it was a 15 or 20 minute wait. Secondly, the nightly menus on the first 10 days or more were pedestrian rather than inspiring with choices that rarely got the glands salivating. I did notice some deterioration on this regard compared to previous Celebrity cruises. On the last 2 or 3 nights, the more sought after entries such as lamb chops, lobster tail, etc. all appeared on the same nights menu. It seems that Celebrity chose to have passengers leave the ship with pleasant recent memories of this dining room rather than spread those dishes out on the menus throughout the cruise. To be fair, menu choices, service, food quality and the decor of the dining room would probably see you receive a $200. plus bill plus gratuity in restaurants on land. We opted for the classic beverage package, so wine was included, and while not memorable, was generously poured. That $200. tab ashore would quickly escalate for thirsty folks. One last word on the menu...although I only had (room for) desert about half of the time, I really enjoyed the apple pie with frozen yogurt rather than ice cream. Delicious. Entertainment...In a few words...far above my expectations. Jane Curry was absolutely outstanding. Calculate what an evening by a performer of her caliber in New York together with dinner in a restaurant such as I have described above would cost there. I recently visited New York...it's a costly place. Comedians, and other entertainers were also very good...and if they didn't suit us...we just left. No harm, no foul. The musicians around the pool and in the ship's lounges was generally too loud and unentertaining. They did have one evening of ABBA mania in one of the upstairs bars which was very well attended and was met with energetic passengers. Where is ABBA now that we need them again? Ok so that covers most of the points I wanted to mention. A product well delivered by a company that clearly knows their business. Unfortunately, I have to leave the worst for last. Getting your luggage at the Port of Miami at the end of the cruise is a horror show. Plain and simple, if you can disembark as a walk off and take your luggage with you...do it. Hope you enjoy your cruise as much as we did. We may see you aboard next year at the same time...we booked it prior to leaving the ship. Read Less

Loved the ship & crew, itinerary, food; the entertainment was excellent. Captain Leo, Eddie the cruise director w/Baldo his associate - wonderful people! This is definitely a cruise for adults; there were hardly any children on board. There were many daily activities, expert talks, etc. My husband really enjoyed the Rich, the technology expert on board. We met him two years ago on the Equinox and learned so much. They also have a glass blowing exposition up on the top deck. They did several demonstrations, and held a charity auction at the end of the cruise. Different strokes for different folks, but we had no problem finding things that we enjoyed. Love the evening chic dress option. Ate entirely in the main dining room for dinner, and the buffet for breakfast and lunch. We were very pleased with the variety of food, and the premium beverage package worked great for us. We thought the entertainment on Celebrity was excellent. Lots of different options. We especially enjoyed the Beatles cover band, called "Hard Day's Night". In summary, we prefer to cruise with Celebrity and the Eclipse is a great ship. I can wholeheartedly recommend this ship and cruise line. Read Less

Just got off a two week cruise to the Caribbean on Celebrity Eclipse. We love Celebrity and have taken pver 30 criises. The ship was the best as far as personnel amd entertainment. Captain Leo was amazing - extremely personable, great sense of humor and extremely visible throughout the ship. He even played Liar's Club and was great. Eddy, the cruise director, was the best we have ever had. Great humor, very visible and was always talking with one of the guests. The entertainment was the best we have ever had!! The 3 production shows were incredible. The entertainers were excellent and we saw a wide range as f talent and venies. The band was terrific as were the musicians who played thruout the ship. The crew was extremely friendly and helpful. We have done this itinerary 5 times, so decided to book tours. We do them off the ship to have fewer people and save some money. The 2 tours that were the best were Harrison Caves in Barbados and Cosol tours in St Lucia which was fabulous. Next time, we will just wonder around town or go to a beach. The time went by so fast that we wished we had another 2 days at sea. Looking forward to our next vacation..... Read Less

We chose this cruise because Celebrity Cruises is our preferred cruise line. We have been on Eclipse and it's sister ships many,many times and absolutely love them.this time was no exception.We usually cruise the Caribbean in January and although we go for the weather and know most of the islands very well,it's life onboard that we really love. The food and the entertainment were very good, and as my husband and I love dancing that plays a big part of our enjoyment onboard.the music on this trip was exceptional and really made the trip even better. Our stateroom was as usual very good although we were lower than normal(deck 7) but that was no problem, and our stateroom attendant was very accommodating and brought whatever we wanted. We went to all three of the speciality restaurants and they we excellent,especially Quisine which was particularly good and very different. Also the food in the main dining room was very good as was the service.altogether making it a wonderful time. We have already booked for next year on Sillouette and can't wait. Read Less

What I call the "deep Caribbean" is our favorite because you miss so many of the overcrowded islands. We tend to stay with the Eclipse because of the staff and cruise directors. In fact, we did the crossing in October, with our favorite cruise director, Sue Denning. We were delighted to find that one of our favorite "Beyond the Podium" speaker was also on not only the crossing but the January cruise. We do enjoy the entire series, with so many experts in their field. Gid Pool was on the crossing and again in January talking about comedy. He also did his comedy show both cruises which was hysterical! We had hoped he would have been at night in the main showroom but they put him in the middle of the afternoon, in Celebrity Central. If you are ever on one of his cruises, don't miss him. We enjoy the itinerary but next year we will pick one that overnights in Aruba and not Curacao. There wasn't much to do at night in the port. We hope that in Aruba we can hit the nightlife at the hotels. Barbados is a gem! We went to the fish fry place, via taxi. Total local and totally good. St. Lucia is getting better. There is a new bar by the pier and another that now has entertainment. We went downtown to a restaurant that was upstairs overlooking the water but left when we couldn't get waited on. Suggestion for that stop, stay close to the ship. St. Kitts is growing like crazy. A new food court is being build that we were told would feature local food. I hope it is ready for next year. We took the train excursion offered by the ship. It's a not to be missed trip. The scenery is overwhelming. St. Maarten is....well... St. Maarten. Too many ships, too any people. Can't wait until next year! Read Less

It left on our 53rd wedding anniversary. All holidays were taken care of including New Years. They had a wonderful Rabbi for Chanukah. Our room steward was the very best. The dining room staff was exceptional. The one big negative was the service in the buffet area. Drinks were hard to get unless you were buying alcohol. The stores are good quality with comparative pricing. Eclipse is a beautiful ship and was decorated beautifully for the holiday season. I find that the pictures taken on board have gone up in price considerably. Since everything is digital I think this is just taking advantage. I love the fact that there are no formal nights. It is much more relaxed. Also, having the anytime dining you do not feel rushed. Entertainment was OK. The best performances came from acts that were brought on the ship for a night. Another thing I did not like was overnighting at a port because the cruise line was sponsoring a concert, which was costly if you wanted to attend. Overall a good cruise. Read Less

Our kids were on this ship for a Christmas cruise in 2015. They enjoyed it so much that they decided to do it again for Christmas 2016 and encouraged us to go with them, which we did. Room steward, Silvestre, was outstanding. Cruise director Eddy was great. All the evening shows and entertainers were very good and enjoyable. The production shows and the Divas were fantastic. Captain Leo was visible everywhere on the ship and was accessible to passengers for chats and pictures. The dining room menu was pretty standard with nothing outstanding for our taste but the buffet served pretty much the same foods that were available in the dining room. That was not a problem for us because we are early diners, fans of the early shows, and we retire relatively early. Also, late dining does not work for us. All in all, everything went satisfactorily for us, so much so that we bookd the same cruise while onboard for Christmas 2017. Overall it was about a 4.5 rating out of 5 for us. Read Less

I love Celebrity and enjoy cruising for the holidays. Highlight of this cruise was in St Marteen when four Celebrshops sat proudly side by side for an overnight. Beautiful site. Even the crew enjoyed this event! My cabin was lively and Michael was excellent stateroom attendant. My afternoon appetizers arrived every afternoon on time and were quite good this cruise. Enjoyed Blu and the wonderful staff including Gamma our hostess. She was al says very accommodating to our needs. Of course loved Murano on. Christmas night & New Year's Eve was very festive. Loved my shore excursion on Antigua. Catamaran cruise with lobster lunch! Amazing! I'm planning next year's holiday cruise now! ❤❤ Spent lots of time reading in Cafe Bacio and enjoying lovely coffee Diablo's! The weather was perfect. Also net some fabulous new friends from England & New York. Enjoyed a fantastic dinner in Grand Case at Bistroit Carribe. Spiny Lobster Thermidor! Amazing!
