Great Itinerary - Everything Else Average

Celebrity Eclipse Cruise Review by Forecheck

Trip Details
  • Sail Date: Apr 2018
  • Destination: the Southern Caribbean
  • Cabin Type: Deluxe Veranda 2B

We sailed this same itinerary last year and loved it so much that we booked again.

This year we found some deficiencies in several areas that will likely see us trying something different for our Vacation dollar and likely try another cruise line upon our next cruise.

On the positive side:

We loved the itinerary and our shore excursions . Why Celebrity would cut their most popular itinerary is baffling. ABC Islands + Barbados , St Lucia , St Martin ,Antigua was tremendous .

Embarkation and Disembarkation was smooth and easy .

Room was good - Room steward did a great job

Negatively :

Celebrity Performer Shows - Were absolutely terrible - they looked unorganized = Why bother even having shows if you are just going to do them half ass.. Embarrassing.

Other Acts - With the exception of maybe 2 performers they were Poor.

( Last year we watched all 14 Shows and thought they were Good - Very Good )

Main Dining Room - Food was just ok - we sat in 2 different sections in Anytime dining and one set of waiters were friendly and did their best , while the others seemed annoyed that we were there..

We went for lunch on a few occasions and really enjoyed them ( more than the Diners )

Oceanview Grill - Not good - Food was just ok and seemed crowded most of the time

Cafe Al Bacio - We like this location ... however one of the workers kept counting down her days every morning to everyone saying "I only have 6 more days.. 5 more days .. 4 more days .. till i am out of here for good" ... I really don't need the negativity or someone counting my hard earned vacation days down -

People on the Cruise were mostly very friendly , however there are always a few who just make you shake your head .. Some people have no respect for others ( IE : Line ups for excursions - and of course the chair hogs on sea days )

Overall we enjoyed the Cruise itinerary and vistiing the different locations.. However we will likely choose to not Cruise the caribean in the near future and likely visit one of these islands via a resort if we do.
