What a wonderful cruise

Celebrity Eclipse Cruise Review by Muffin67

Trip Details
  • Sail Date: Mar 2018
  • Destination: the Southern Caribbean
  • Cabin Type: Deluxe Veranda 1B

This was our 5th cruise, the 3rd with Celebrity. We really love the Solstice Class ships!

Our cabin was very clean and tidy. There was plenty of space to leave our clothes.

The cruise itinerary was perfect: very nice islands indeed! We especially enjoyed the overnight stay in Curacao! Just a quick suggestion: We always left ports quite early, even if the next port was just some 70 seamiles away. This could have been made smoothly even if we had left the previous port at 11 pm. We would have had more time to enjoy the evening at the islands...

Dining in Moonlight Sonata was very nice. The card changed daily, but there were some all-time favourites. We did not feel the necessity to go for specialty dining. We enjoyed anytime-dining with shared tables. That way, we met a lot of people from many different parts of the world.

Service was great. We especially enjoyed our pre-dinner cocktail at the Sunset Bar. A great team!

Every sea day you could chose between action and a quite place to sit down and relax. We never had the feeling of being on a ship together with nearly 3000 passengers.

We highly recommend this cruise. What a pity that Celebrity is not offering the 14 day cruises any more!

Port & Shore Excursion Reviews

Very rough ride to Gustavia - took about 45 minutes - not appropriate for motion sickness. However we felt fine. At Gustavia we hired an electric car and explored the island. Enjoyed it very much.

A bit disappointing, because the photographer did not really give detailed explanations (e.g. lenses, light etc.). The tour itself was great. We saw some very nice spots

Great! Our guide Felixia gave us a lot of information about the beautiful island. The photostop at the Pietons and the natural trail was great. We really enjoyed that day!

Great tour. Unfortunately the beach at Bathsheba was covered with large amounts of seagrass. - Of course not the guide`s fault! Had to wait at Harrison's cave for nearly an hour. - Too crowded!

We hired a scooter and explored the island. Amazing!

Curacao

The first day we hired a car and explored the island. Avis is directly at the pier. The car should be hired in advance, because the run out of cars quickly. The Norther part of the island is extremely lovely. We highly recommend Boka Tabla National Park.

We liked the overnight-stay. Willemstad is a very nice city! The floating market (merchants from Venezuela) does no longer exist.

Aruba

We chose a tour of a local tour operator. A lot of them are waiting at the cruise pier. We saw California Lighthouse and Baby Bridge.
