Celebrity Eclipse Cruise Review by dabowles
- Sail Date: August 2018
- Destination: Baltic Sea
- Cabin Type: Deluxe Veranda
We went 4 days ahead to Amsterdam and did a bunch of exploring around the city. It’s a very safe and easy to get around city. We did a guided cycle tour, and hop on hop off bus and boat tour. Anne Frank house and Reiksmuseum were outstanding (get tickets well ahead though).
We had a basic balcony room and were surprised with the relatively large size of the bathroom. We always do the anytime dining and only had to wait for a table once. Wait and wine staff were outstanding in main dining room. The food was great in dining room. We went to Murano specialty restaurant once - the food was great but the environment was a bit stuffy for us.
We normally don’t go to many shows, as they’re usually weak, but we found the shows to be quite good. The singers, dancers and aerialists were great.
We used SPB tours for the Berlin excursion (horribly long day) and 2-day tour of Saint Petersburg and they were great. Very good guides, with small groups (16 or so), and good headsets. We self guided at all other ports using Rick Steves Baltic Sea port book.
Went straight from the ship to train station to the airport on disembarkation. Very easy to use public transportation in Amsterdam.
We’ve sailed before on Princess, Cunard, RCL and others, but Celebrity is now our preferred line.
