Great ship wonderful ports

Celebrity Eclipse Cruise Review by Trend

Trip Details
  • Sail Date: Feb 2016
  • Destination: the Southern Caribbean
  • Cabin Type: AquaClass 1

The ship is kept in top shape and the food is excellent. My only problem with the food is the nickel and diming with the upgrade packages. For someone who does not drink but would like Greek yogurt at breakfast I would have to pay $5.5 or buy a top package that is alcohol based so in my case not used but paid for.

The service was great but I found the top staff only talked with familiar passengers or hot looking women. On a cruise that the mean age seemed to be 75 plus many with scooters we would have enjoyed a conversation with officers during Elite functions.

The ports were great and I was impressed after 20 plus cruises with how easy and fast it was to get off at each port.

Disembarkation was also very quick in fact ahead of time and getting luggage was a breeze.

Miami

Have not used this port in a long time and I was quite pleased with the quick and efficient disembarkation.

Operator was great but the sightings were just ok.

The other day in port we went to the Santa Barbara resort it was a nice day beach not great but good pools clean and good food.

Island Tour

Tour operator was excellent but snorkelling at Pigeon Island was just ok.

We did the north end of island since we had toured south twice before.

Had a great lunch at a great local restaurant. Sites were nothing outstanding.

Did not get off as we were here in summer and the people shoving monkey's in our faces for pictures was awful. The beaches were dirty with animal fences.

Aruba

Went to Palm beach area. It was great early in the day but by 12 noon it was a zoo.
