  3. Celebrity Eclipse
We had always wanted to see Iceland and saw this itinerary while aboard Eclipse in the Caribbean. So glad that we did! The weather was quite cold and wet -- this is Iceland, people -- but the scenery was amazing. We even got above the Arctic Circle. Loved the ports in Shetland, Cork and Belfast. We took Celebrity excursions in each port and are glad we did. Especially when our ship was late getting into Reykjavik -- our rescheduled tour was handled for us. Others were scrambling. The crew was terrific. All seemed helpful and were enjoying the trip. The ship had just come from the Caribbean and when it snowed (yes it snowed! BTW...pool lounge chairs covered in snow looks hilarious) many of the crew who had never seen snow in their lives went out to make snowballs, snow men, etc. We were in Sky Suite 2153 and dined in Luminae each night. The staff creates a friendly, community-like atmosphere and the food is excellent. This is really one of the main reasons we seek an upgrade on Celebrity. We originally booked in Aqua and saw a reduction in suite prices -- booked an upgrade for just a few hundred dollars. Our cabin crew was terrific (Thanks Rockie!). We did hear some furniture moving above us (Ocean View Cafe Bar) a couple of mornings, but we mentioned it to our steward and it was greatly reduced and not a problem. Eclipse isn't getting any younger but you can't tell. The carpets and furnishings all look to be in top shape. I highly endorse this itinerary. Fantastic scenery and experiences. Definitely do the Blue Lagoon. Touristy but an amazing (and fun!).

Cabin Review

Sky Suite
Cabin S2 2153
Love having a bit more room and storage space. We'd never overlooked the back of the ship and actually enjoyed it. Not much breeze on the veranda and incredible views. We had a bit of bit of furniture scraping a couple of mornings but it was greatly reduced after we mentioned it to our steward.
