First and Not Last Celebrity Eclipse

Sail Date: December 2013
Destination: Southern Caribbean
Embarkation: Fort Lauderdale (Port Everglades)
Just returned from 14 days Caribbean Cruise on Eclipse. We have sailed on many lines and found Celebrity to be the best! From easy embarkation/disembarkation to very friendly crew and Officers made a point of greeting.

Food - were disappointed with Murano we felt over the top and not impressed with the food. Qsine just a novelty act probably would not do again. Tuscan Grill delicious food. Select dining Moonlight Sonata never had to wait for table for 2 and food delicious. Bistro on 5 - loved crepes!

Cabin well appointed with plenty of drawer/hanging space. We took premium drinks package saving us a lot as drinks + tipping are expensive. We did not feel that barmen shunned us because we had the package quite the opposite. Concierge Class was worth the extra cost delicious Canapes each evening, fresh fruit daily, flowers and Concierge Class disembarkation lounge which was comfy and we were supplied with coffee and juice.

Entertainment - saw two shows one More pianist Brooke who was entertaining. Lounge bars live music good but slightly repetitive. Look forward hopefully to our next cruise on Celebrity! Less

Cabin review:

Quiet location. Bathroom huge. Veranda large with sheet glass panel and foot rests (Concierge Class extra). Bed not too soft. Bedding changed every couple of days.

Port and Shore Excursions

Consol Tours Excellent. I found them on Tripadvisor and booked ourselves on Consol's web page. Mini bus with 10 persons. Driver informative and amusing! Stopped at banana plantation and tasted sweetest banana. Breakfast buffet of local foods delicious. Tour through volcano, rain forest and then on speed boat to Sugar Cove for lazing on beach for an hour. Lunch on way back to ship was hot french loaves (driver picked up from local bakery), cheese and beer in the mini bus, something different but enjoyable. Highly rate Consol!
