The Celebrity Eclipse is a fantastic ship that excels in all areas of passenger service and comfort.
We tried Aqua Class for this voyage out of Southampton.
When Celebrity marketed this cruise last year they had no control over the passenger demographic. Despite the voyage being in the high season of July there were few young families and under 50s. The average age group on this voyage appeared to be around 70 -- the Grey Pound/Dollar. This sadly reflected in some of the entertainment and the general feel of the ship. However, our main highlights of this cruise were :
Aqua Class Cabin 1597- On deck 11 just below the pool area this cabin unfortunately lacks daylight and sunshine due to the large overhang of the pool deck above. Decks below were receiving much more sunlight. Noisy footsteps and moving chairs on the deck above could be heard on odd occasions. Due to the itinerary being in a colder climate it was ok but would not want to be situated in this location in the Caribbean. It is close to the elevators and central atrium, with the library conveniently situated one deck down and the buffet two decks above. The shower is very clever with all the jets and rain shower head. The bed is close to the window with the sofa at the door. There is no issue with the next door cabin which is on the start of the hump being able to overlook you. Fresh flowers provided, fresh fruit and bottled water.
