The Baltic cruise and Russia are a not to be missed, amazing!!!

Sail Date: June 2016
Destination: Baltic Sea
Embarkation: Southampton
We chose Celebrity Eclipse as we had cruised with them twice before and we could not fault the ship or the service . It was second to none , a really 5* ship.

I am very sorry to say that the usual standard expected from Celebrity was a little lacking this cruise. The Baltic cruise including St Petesburg is amazing but very tiring as you will have back to back excursions for serval days and it takes it toll! When we got back in the evening we just wanted to kick back and relax but you are on a cruise ship so you should make the most of It! With this in mind we went to the evening theatre shows.

This is where it all got very disappointing, on previous cruises with this ships entertainment was brilliant , like watching a west end show! but this cruise they were really abysmal !! No good productions, no west end musicals , no great sets , most nights were just a single performer, ie: single comedienne ( we're no sets or backing performers were required).

These More shows are an integral part of the entertainment on ship and Celebrity need to keep up there game or cruises will change ships!! Fellow passages where already commenting at dinner how disappointing they where and how other ships have been much better!

The other change we noticed was that the staff in the self service restaurant very very complacent they couldn't even tell you what the food was or what was I it.

I would like to add that the cabin staff where brilliant as always but Customer Relations and the Shop Staff could learn a thing or to from them!

I love the Eclispe and will still rate them at the Top but they need to keep there eye on the ball or this could change!!! Less

Walking Tour

Dreadful weather so not good Experiance but guide could have sent us all to sleep ( think some were) pretty place but wouldn't spent anymore than a day there.

Once again took shuttle bus into town. Took river cruise, would have been better had it not been pouring with rain! Took you round all main sites including little mermaid. Walked round city after but it was more expensive than Stockhom which was a suprise. Ok for short weekend but wouldn't stay longer.

We walked into Warnemunde and so pleased we did, it a lovely seaside town full of charm, loads of restaurants quant little shops all running along side the canal and to put the cherry on the cake a beautiful beach!!

City Tour

Brilliant Experiance not to be missed!! One that will want you going back for more!! GUIDE GURU TOURS WERE AMAZING !! just us and driver and guide worth every single penny and in fact not that much more than other exclusions.

Another place not to be missed exceeded all expectations, the captain informed us that it would take the ship 4.1/2 hrs to pass through the Archipelago to reach Stockholm, we sat on our balcony for the whole journey and was worth every minuet it is certainly another not to be missed, outstandingly beautiful!

We took the shuttle bus right into the old town , very medieval I can see why it us a worl heritage site, u expect Dracula to walk round the corner any minuet ! ( it was dark and stormy on our visit. The entry into old town looked very drab but old town full of history and once again charming .
