This was our 7th cruise with Celebrity and the first one on the beautiful Eclipse. Main reason we took this cruise was that it went to St. Petersburg which we wanted to see and that it was during the last 2 weeks of July. Everything, ... Read more

We were suite guests, having travelled on the Eclipse before in a different cabin. Not a cheap hobby but goodness me it was worth it. Effortless check-in. Plenty of space to relax in. Lovely cabin staff including the splendid Butler that ... Read more

The cruise was organised by a relative, so we had no input into the choice of cruise line. The cost was significantly higher than for previous cruises with P&O, so we were expecting higher levels of everything on-board! The good ... Read more

We were very excited to be joining the Eclipse for the Baltic cruise, as its reputation as a 5 star vessel was very good plus visiting The Baltic area especially St Petersburg was a children hood dream. The initial organisation for The ... Read more

What a cruise! Our trip began in Atlanta on June 14 as we flew Delta to London. Inadequate long-term parking at the international terminal required that we park in the park and ride lots near the domestic terminal. We had to take two ... Read more

We chose this cruise because of the 2 day stop in St Petersburg and the fact that it left from Southampton. We are new to cruising and were a little anxious that there would be too many people (2800 + staff 1200). However, the ship is big ... Read more

Eclipse is a lovely boat but for a Baltic cruise has insufficient indoor areas to sit in the evening. The cabin is one of the better ones compared with other ships. The buffet was chaotic at meal times so we tried to avoid busy times but ... Read more
