Celebrity Eclipse Cruise Review by leesa123

Trip Details
  • Sail Date: Sep 2017
  • Destination: the Western Mediterranean
  • Cabin Type: Deluxe Veranda 1B

What can I say, just outstanding. The staff were friendly and worked so hard and a special mention of our waiter and assistant waiter on table 219, Jason and Pande and Aleks the Sommelier. Didn't see much of our cabin steward but when we did see him he was lovely and kept the room immaculate.

The food was exceptional ,one comment though that I think it needs to have more variety on it as it didn't change that much, still had Filet and Chateau Briand and my husband loved the escargots.

The ship was beautiful as we expected, could do with some more lifts as they were extremely busy at certain periods of the trip but that was no big deal.

Eddie the entertainment director was fabulous as was our Captain "the voice from above", certainly was very visible and mixed with all the passengers which makes a change.

The shows were excellent as were the individual acts that came on, Jane Curry was terrific as were the McDonald brothers.

The tours were good although the storm in Rome put a slight dampener on things but that's not Celebrity's fault.

My husband and myself loved everything about the cruise that whilst on board we booked the next one, roll on September 23rd next year.

Cabin Review

Deluxe Veranda 1B
Cabin 1B 6235

Lovely, a little frayed round the edges but on the whole wonderful. The bathroom was great and the shower pumped out the water well,so overall was impressed.

Port & Shore Excursion Reviews


The road into Southampton very congested,could be better,but the parking was great, I would highly recommend AB Parking


Not as cheap as I thought it would be,still great for shopping.


Caught the hopper bus to Nice, very easy and cheap. Villefranche was picture perfect but not a lot of shops so best to go to Nice or Monaco

La Spezia (Cinque Terre)

Had a tour to Luca/Pisa from this port. Very good,expect to not have a lot of time at Pisa to look round on your own,we had an hour,could have done with 2 hours

Rome on Your Own

On the coach for 90 mins each way with only 45 mins in St Peters Square, booked wrong tour,weather was awful and Rome was flooded

Loved it, vibrant and loads of shopping and bars and enough time to do everything we wanted to do,shopping was great


Loved Lisbon, especially the captain using hes horn as we went under the singing bridge,shame he didn't do it when we left, Lisbon is terrific, leather shops, bars, cafes and general shopping.
