Eclipsed by Eclipse

Sail Date: May 2010
Destination: Canary Islands
Embarkation: Southampton
From the moment of embarkation to disembarkation - it was sheer pleasure. The Staff could not do enoough for you . The "Can Do" attitude was there for all too see, with politeness, smiles and integrity.

The ship itself is superb and I can understand other ships in the group being Solsticized. Although the design of the ship was large and the amount of people on it many. you did not feel that the ship was crowded and there was plenty of "your own space" to move around in.

The restaurants are many and varied and I challenge anybody not too find something to suit them. We were in Aqua Class and Blu was our restaurant - the attention and service given was superb as was the food which was different, innovative and well thought out.

The various bars around the ship each had there own characters with the Ensemble Lounge being just one of our favourites. Michaels Club always a winner especially for a nice breakfast. For the Elite Members of the Captains Club - More the facilities were second to non and meeeting old friends made it even better.

The places we called at, we had been to several times before , so it was good to see them again and revisit old haunts and discover new ones.

We met friends in Southampton for Dinner, friends in Lanzarote (who live their) for Lunch,relations in Lisbon for sightseeing, friends on the way home in Maidenhead - so what was an 11 day cruise turned out to be more like a 15 day holiday.

Although we have been on a number of cruises now with RCI & Celebrity and they have all been good - this is one of the cruises which we will be talking about for a long time. Less

Port and Shore Excursions

New Port was fine - butdrop off point is too far out of town - needs to be closer to the centre - perhaps drop off point should be nbear Hotel Arrecife Gran

It was Gran Canaria - but cannot find it on your list - this port was O.K.

Port ok - drop off point is extremely central

Port 6 was Vigo - which is a superb new port

Port Ok - and so was Finchal considering the damage earlier in the year.

Extremely well laid out + efficient staff and "prper" directions

No probelms with this port - all OK
