St Petersburg: Celebrity Eclipse Cruise Review by Amsterdam 352
Overall Member Rating
Destination: Baltic Sea
The ship though is huge and although full did not seem crowded. Obviously having been on the Queen Mary I could not notice the differences in layout, personally I liked the Eclipse better with its grand enfilade of rooms and the Atrium. The only thing that the ship lacked was a proper ballroom, since events suited to the Queens Room were scattered through out the Ship.
Being in Aqua class meant meals were taken in Blu, which is the best restaurant afloat, the service was superb and the food excellent, it was also noticed how well ALL the staff worked together. Other restaurants More used included Tuscany and Bistro on 5, all of which were excellent.
Entertainment was both good and bad. Some of the special external acts were extremely poor and rude. This contrasted with the excellent "Home staff" who's performances were superb but were sometimes squeezed into the odd corners. On a number of occasions a lousy "show" was followed by an excellent "ambush" by Full tilt in comedy central.
Going to the Baltics meant booking tours and I opted for Celebrity Tours. The quality was generally ok, but if I doing it again would go off more by myself. it should be noted that only information on Celebrity tours was available on board this will be mentioned later. The only bad things were the on board shops which were under US Customs regulations for allowances and which closed after Tallin. Less

My cabin was Aqua Class on deck 11 and was excellent. Cabin was quiet and the extra benefits were definitely worth upgrading forRead All AquaClass (A2) Reviews >>
