  3. Celebrity Eclipse
We just experienced our first Celebrity Cruise ( after more then 20 cruises and as a Diamond Plus Member of Royal Carribean ). We travelled in a Sky-suite aft with 4 perks included ( premium beverage package, unlimited Wifi, prepaid gratuities and a onboard credit of 150 Usd per person ). Taking into account the amount paid this was a very great value for money. The overal service level is outstanding. Most of our meals were taken in the "Luminae" restaurant ( for suite residents ). The menu is less elaborated than the one in the main restaurant but the items proposed and served are excellent ( if you want, you may choose also from the main restaurant menu ). This is combined with a excellent wine choice proposed by the expert sommelier and a friendly efficient waiter service. We had also dinner at Qsine and experienced the " Little Chef " dinner show. A must ( don't forget to negotiate with the specialty restaurant sales on board.... for all of them you will get 30 to up to 50% discount of the announced rates ). The Murano meal is excellent but the atmosphere and service did not reach the level of the other restaurants. It's staff should serve in a lesser automatic drive. We attended two shows with excellent singers, dances and orchestra. Towards the end of the cruise, the music director found the better formula and orchestra to entertain the guests in the Atrium. We definitely enjoyed the cruise and the Celebrity experience. But we had one issue ... shopping on board.....We were attracted by on offer of a Stuhrling ladies watch at a " up to 75 % discount of the tag price" which was 995 Usd. We had to pay 140 Usd. However after we bough this watch, we checked Sturhling's website.... There is no ladies watch at more than 200 Usd in their portfolio, and the watch we bought is shown on the Sturhling site at 90-95 Usd before a discount of 15%. We consider the sale by Celebrity's vendor as fraudulent as the price tag shows a highly inflated price and even with the so called discount the amount to pay was still 50% higher than the normal price setting. Moreover, being very upset by the matter the whole story caused an intimidating warning meeting onboard ( by the way we did not accept their proposed match pricing and returned the watch with full refund ). So be aware for the so called " up to xx% discount " at the ships shops.... It's a regrettable that this experience ( caused by acompany contracted by Celebrity Cruises ) is overshadowing an otherwise excellent cruise

Excellent cruise with superb food and service.... but be aware whilst shoppingi

Cabin Review

Sky Suite
Cabin S2 2150
Well designed cabin at the aft of th ship. Large bathroom with a bathtub. Plenty of storage room. Superb aft view. Although situated just below the Ocean View Cafe and Bar on the
14th deck, we had few problems with noise from above. After a call with guest relations the noise caused during the night by high pressure water cleaning was substantially reduced for the remainder of the cruise.
