Food was a disappointment

Celebrity Eclipse Cruise Review by Tanito

Trip Details
  • Sail Date: Apr 2019
  • Destination: Pacific Coastal
  • Cabin Type: Deluxe Veranda 1A

We liked the itinerary and had not visited the West Coast since the 80`s.We got to San Diego a day early and enjoyed the city.Didn`t stop in Monterrey due to the heavy seas and the water was rough up to Seattle.Got two and half days in San Francisco and had a good time.The stop in Astoria Oregon should be eliminated and the extra time spent in Seattle a beautiful city.Victoria was great too.We ended in Vancouver and flew home but should have spent an extra day here.

The cabin was great [a little dated] but kept spotless by a very good steward.

The food was a letdown in both the Dining Room and the Oceanview cafe but the the service was excellent.I think the Celebrity is trying to force people to the Specialty restaurants or the top of the line cabins with their own restaurants.

The captain was very visible and the Cruise Director was also very good.

The shows were good.

Embarkation was so-so. [we had to walk up a very steep plank]

I will cruise Celebrity again for the combination of a good deal and interesting itinerary but being aware that the quality and variety of food has gone down.

Cabin Review

Deluxe Veranda 1A
Cabin 1A 6237

A little dated but with enough room and kept clean


Port & Shore Excursion Reviews

San Diego

Got here a day early Stayed at the Springhill Suites a nice property in front of the cruise terminal Took the harbor cruise[Good deal by Groupon] and the Hop On & Off trolley ride [also nice but a little expensive]

San Francisco

We spent two nights and days and got another good deal in Groupon for a two day pass an evening cruise[Sausalito bus included] on The Hop On Hop Off Bus that stops at the pier.

Astoria, Oregon

Not much to do here,We took the overpriced and not interesting tour to Seaside and Cannon Beach.

This port should be replace with extra time in Seattle.

Seattle

Great stop bot not enough time. We went around the free shuttle operated by the city[ Two lines that take you everywhere] and rode the Wheel.

Victoria

Another nice stop, and it didn`t get five stars it`s because the shuttle to the city center is a rip off at $15.00 canadian round trip [but paid the same in US money]

Take a private cab to the center and then the Gray Line Hop On -Off bus that will drop you by the pier on your return
