  3. Celebrity Eclipse
So much of this cruise was a disappointment. First dining room service and room steward were excellent, food delicious. The rest of the experience was below average. 4 sea days with few planned activities. Paper airplane contests for adults, no quite area for drinks in the evening, entertainment in odd places where you could not see if you were short, disembarkation in one port had a 650 people waiting to get off in the center, rude staff, middle drink package was so limiting because they were trying to sell the more expensive package, EVERYTIME you entered the café you were confronted with people selling the specialty restaurants, port talks were at 8 PM;one good performer, the rest average; boarding a fiasco with a 60-90 minute wait for many people; crew not very friendly. Then we left an ipad on board in our stateroom, went through 90 minutes of trying to contact Celebrity and the ship. Had to send an email to celebrity, call when we returned, then had to wait for the cruise to return from next cruise. No way this ipad was not found but apparently they bag the item and store it, labeling it with stateroom and date. Still have not found it. This was our 24 cruise, second with Celebrity, would not do again.
