We picked this cruise for it's itinerary and were not disappointed. We had an easy check in (despite having no printed document as our printer had died) and we waited no more than 20 minutes from joining the queue to walking on to Eclipse. For those who have not sailed with her, we, as 1st time cruisers thought she was a huge ship. However she is very well laid out and it is often hard to believe that there are over 4500 people including crew on board.
After embarkation we headed to the Ocean view for Lunch, we ate most lunches here - a great selection and regularly replenished. Tasty and hot with Italian, Chinese, Mexican, sandwiches, fromagerie, hot foods such as stews and goulash, pizza and the list goes on.
We found our cabin to be far more spacious than we had expected and the layout was in our opinion good with nice touches like fresh fruit and flowers. As concierge we also received canapes each day, the novelty wore off before the end of the 1st week. A nice idea but 4 small canapes were delivered each afternoon. Nothing too special but as I say a nice touch.
