Set sail from Amsterdam after spending two days in it prior to going on the cruise, we loved Amsterdam and will return there at some point. We stayed at the Movenpick hotel so just a 100 yd walk to the cruise terminal. Embarkcation was relatively straightward, and we were onboard after about an hour and a half. We didnt have long to wait until our cabins were ready just after 1.00, alongside our luggage. The sail from Amsterdam to the North Sea was not the most scenic, with a lot of industry along the way. This was our first cruise with Celebrity and we were very impressed, with both the staff and crew of the Eclipse, the ship itself was kept spotless, and there is plenty of activities to keep you occupied during sea days. We didn't eat every night in the MDR but when we did we enjoyed every meal and were well looked after by Alexio and the rest of the dining room staff. If we didn't eat in the MDR we used the Oceanview Café where there is a vast choice of starters main and desserts. We also used the Mast Grill for a couple of lunches. We had signed up for the Classic package and never once felt the need to upgrade to the Premium Package, had a couple of Drambuie's, and had to sign an additional slip, but that was it. Plenty of selections of beers spirits and wines. We used most of the bars at some point, but preferred the Passport Bar, Observation Bar and the Sunset Bar. We visited the Eclipse Theatre most nights and the entertainment was of a very good standard and very professional, Jane Curry probably being the pick of the bunch. All ports we visited were very good, although Warnemunde was cold wet and windy, but it looked and an attractive town with a good beach. We walked into Helsinki from the cruise port and liked what we saw, again in Stockholm we walked into the Vasa Museum, and the Royal Palace, Stockholm was very impressive with some stunning buildings. St Petersburg was outstanding, we did the two day tour with Denrus, and had absolutely no problems getting through immigration on the first day. Tallin was a walkable delight as well, it helped that it was a beautiful day, Copenhagen again was walkable, and we also did a canal tour. Disembarkation was easy and smooth, and a quick transfer to Amsterdam airport finished off a delightful and memorable holiday. We will cruise with Celebrity again next year, through the Panama Canal, and we cannot wait.

Cabin Review

Deluxe Veranda
Cabin 1A 8166
Cabin was kept very clean by our steward Romer. The shower always had plenty of hot water with good pressure, our room was OK, we thought that we didn't have enough space for our clothes until we discovered the spaces above the bed. Made reasonable use of our balcony particularly in the morning and in the evening. 8166 is quite close to the four bank elevators, but never heard any noise coming from that area. We slept very well in a big and comfy bed, and heard very little noise throughout the cruise.
