Great Ship, Food & Service Too Bad COVID Was Alive &Well On This Cruise
"One issue was our hard pillows but thanks to our room steward Alvin who saved the day by bringing us some memory foam and feather pillows from other classes of rooms on the ship we were able to have some good night's sleep.One tip we received from Cruise Critic that was really useful was that the walls in the room are magnetic...."Read More

Great trip

This cruise was selected for the itinerary. It went to all the South Pacific islands that we wanted to visit. We mostly dined at the main dining room. The waiters and food were excellent - could not fault the service. We dined at the Oceanview Café, which is a buffet style, at times and while the selection and quality of food was also excellent, we found it to be far too busy for us and we ...

Our Celebrity first cruise

We bought the Celebrity Always Included package, which includes the classic beverage package, basic wi-fi, and gratuities. Works out well for us, although we did find a wine we liked better which was not completely covered by the package so we paid $4 extra a few times. Reminder that all prices are in US dollars. Dining in the main dining room Moonlight Sonata- stuffed in like sardines. ...

Suite - Nice but noisy

First Time Cruiser • Age 60s

For our first cruise, we chose to go around New Zealand. We are Australian so we liked the Sydney departure. We sprung for a suite to avoid waiting in queues. The Retreat exclusive restaurant with fewer people also appealed to us as a way of reducing chances of contracting a virus. Staff are exceptionally friendly and helpful. Suite is satisfactory. Food is very good. Our one issue is ...

Rather disappointing New Zealand Christmas/NY cruise

This was our 47th cruise and16th with Celebrity. Overall, it was an enjoyable cruise (something would be really wrong if a cruise isn’t). The ship has been kept in good condition, everywhere was spotlessly clean with cleaners working consistently around the ship. Mostly the crew were pleasant and helpful. We’ve done this itinerary Sydney-Sydney around New Zealand a couple of times, so chose ...

Second Rate, poor value for money

We chose this cruise because we had sailed pre Covid with Solstice and had had a wonderful time. However, this cruise was extremely disappointing and we will never choose this line again. These are some of the reasons, Mask wearing was barely encouraged for passengers and was minimal. The staff all wore them. However, Covid was spreading as a result. Two out of our party of eight ...

Relaxing cruise despite an inferior itinerary

We had already decided to make the best of the cuts to our itinerary (7 stops down to 4), as this was our firstcruise in 3 years, and we were also introducing our friends to cruising! The ship is beautiful, yes, you can see she needs some work, general areas need some refurbishment, chairs need reupholstering, but she is still lovely! Boarding was amazing! We were to board at 12, and were ...

We were using up a credit and this was the easiest cruise to get too. Cruising for us is mainly focused on the good beds and the variety of the eating venues. Both scored *. The bed was the worst we have ever tried to sleep on. Thin hard mattress, very uncomfortable. The free restaurants were the Oceanview Cafe Buffet , always the same menu with minor variations, dessert menu had lots of lovely ...

We've been on the Eclipse several times, and this is our 7th Celebrity Cruise (of 9 total), so we knew what to expect. As any performance review, I'd mark this experience as "as expected". Not five star great, but not two star bad. Food was fine (we travel with someone who while not a "foodie" knows what he likes, and he liked the food), from the Oceanview Cafe (good selection, but as I've ...

Chaos, Upgrade and a rip off!

Well it all started rather badly. We were booked in for our 'medical' at Sydney Cruise terminal at 12 noon. We were told NOT to arrive early and being responsible people arrived on time. Only to be greeted by around 3000 other people all trying to get on the ship at the same time. It was chaos! One poor guy was going around with a hand held speaker trying to get people moving, but nobody could ...

Disappointing

10+ Cruises • Age 60s

Unfortunately perhaps our expectations were too high, this ship is tired. The embarkations and disembarkations were chaotic to say the least, including assembling for excursions. This itinerary had many sea days and not enough variety of public spaces. The coffee shop was extremely popular probably because it was one of the few places to visit. The observation lounge was completely under ...
