  3. Celebrity Eclipse
Our first transatlantic cruise, but not our last. We have enjoyed cruising on Celebrity a number of times and decided to give a transatlantic voyage a try. In spite of the weather we had a very enjoyable trip across the pond. We met some lovely couples, enjoyed delicious food and entertainment along with participating in fun activities. We prefer Aqua class and Blu restaurant with its clean cuisine although you can order delicious escargot and Caesar salad along with other foods, even though it is not on the menu. The Persian Garden and aroma therapy sauna was a most delightful way to while away and relax during the sea days with their Inclimate weather. Our cabin steward was attentive and polite. Room service timely and the upgraded menu complete with a variety of breakfast selections to suit our tastes. The ance lessons on sea days were fun and informative. Also very crowed. It would be nice if they were held in a more spacious location, but then I suppose we were part of the afternoon entertainment since many cruisers were content watching us over the rails from the upper decks. We look forward to another transatlantic in the fall and pray that Mother Nature will be kinder with a few more sunny skies.

Cabin Review

AquaClass
Cabin A2
Cabin was clean and well appointed. Certainly prefer the shower doors on Celebrity compared to shower curtains on other lines. Love the plush robes, they were a nice extra layer for balcony time on this trip.

Port & Shore Excursion Reviews

  • Biscay Coast and Txakoli Wine
    Great day for a tour. Cool and sunny, views of Biscay Bay were breathtaking. Commentary was excellent. We enjoyed the town and local coffee. We missed the latter portion of the guided tour of the town but enjoyed venturing on our own. The winery tour and tasting was a proper wine tasting, informative and enjoyable. The owners very knowledgeable and eager to share their knowledge. The wine was very good and we enjoyed sharing our purchase with friends in England after disembarking in South Hampton.

  • Medieval Obidos Walking Tour
    What a hoot. There was a chocolate festival going on in Obidos. The village was extremely crowded but the festivities were a wonderful way to experience the locals. Our guide was thorough and very informative. We had plenty of time to venture the town on our own. We enjoyed the local sour cherry liquor and wonderful pastries. The street entertainers covered in chocolate were fun to watch.

  • Sete Cicades Crater Lake Tour
    The weather impaired visibility but we enjoyed the narrative along with the sites we did see. The wine tasting was a joke. No description of the wine, no dialog whatsoever, no organization, just a sea of people trying to taste the wine and cheese in a limited amount of time. Very disappointing.
