  3. Celebrity Eclipse
We boarded the Eclipse in Southampton on May 4 2012 very smooth check in and as we had flown in from Northern Ireland went over to the big shopping centre before boarding We have been on the Eclipse previously and know the layout of the ship We travelled Concierge Class room 1231 on deck 10 lovely big balcony and the usual comfortable stateroom The weather was ok for the time of year and this cruise had 3 sea days and there was a great variety of things to do The entertainment was of the usual high standard with a wonderful concert pianist on board which was a change and well received by all The meals were perhaps not as good as on previous cruises with celebrity as the menu seemed rather less varied than before We had requested a table for 8 and got a table for 4 we asked to move and got a table for 8 with couples who wanted 1st sitting so ended up with just 2 ! Joseph the maitre d was extremely helpful and found us a table with 6 other lovely people in a great position Our first port was Bergen and we took the funicular to the mountain well worth the trip we also went to the fort and walked around the fish market and old wooden s buildings by the waterfront The next port was Flam and we took a shore excursion on the Flam railway This is a trip not to be missed as it is stunning Geirangerfjord is the most beautiful place and we walked up the hill to the museum and the old wooded church for wonderful views We were lucky with the weather as we were the first ship in this season and the snows have not melted yet so we did not see the waterfalls in full flow Some roads higher up were still closed We have been to Oslo before so went to the City hall to see the murals We had thick fog along the coast but were lucky with the weather in the ports It was a very good experience and we would recommend this type of cruise but perhaps a little later in the season as it was cold !

Celebrity Eclipse Cruise Review by Holliedogislandmagee

Trip Details
  • Sail Date: May 2012
  • Destination: Baltic Sea
  • Cabin Type: Concierge Class
We boarded the Eclipse in Southampton on May 4 2012 very smooth check in and as we had flown in from Northern Ireland went over to the big shopping centre before boarding
We have been on the Eclipse previously and know the layout of the ship
We travelled Concierge Class room 1231 on deck 10 lovely big balcony and the usual comfortable stateroom
The weather was ok for the time of year and this cruise had 3 sea days and there was a great variety of things to do
The entertainment was of the usual high standard with a wonderful concert pianist on board which was a change and well received by all
The meals were perhaps not as good as on previous cruises with celebrity as the menu seemed rather less varied than before
We had requested a table for 8 and got a table for 4 we asked to move and got a table for 8 with couples who wanted 1st sitting so ended up with just 2 ! Joseph the maitre d was extremely helpful and found us a table with 6 other lovely people in a great position
Our first port was Bergen and we took the funicular to the mountain well worth the trip we also went to the fort and walked around the fish market and old wooden s buildings by the waterfront
The next port was Flam and we took a shore excursion on the Flam railway This is a trip not to be missed as it is stunning
Geirangerfjord is the most beautiful place and we walked up the hill to the museum and the old wooded church for wonderful views
We were lucky with the weather as we were the first ship in this season and the snows have not melted yet so we did not see the waterfalls in full flow
Some roads higher up were still closed
We have been to Oslo before so went to the City hall to see the murals
We had thick fog along the coast but were lucky with the weather in the ports
It was a very good experience and we would recommend this type of cruise but perhaps a little later in the season as it was cold !
