  3. Celebrity Eclipse
We sailed on the Celebrity Eclipse on January 22, 2011. This was our first cruise on the Solstice Class ship although we have cruised extensively with Celebrity. We were completely awed by the beauty, cleanliness and functionality of this ship. The personnel were very friendly and although there were one or two lapses in stateroom maintenance, for the greater part we were exceptionally pleased.

The sky suite that we had was much larger than the sky suite on the Millenium class ships and was extremely well designed. There was so much storage space that I had empty drawers and cabinets. We did not see the veranda cabin up close, and that is the class that we usually take, but I'm hoping that it will similarly have excellent space.

The Theater was very comfortable and we were very pleasantly surprised by the quality of the entertainment--both the celebrity singers and dancers, and the two other entertainers.

We did a shore excursion in Cozumel called Salsa and Salsa which I highly recommend to anyone who has previously been in Cozumel. We learned to make 6 Salsas with the Dancing Chefs, made and drank margaritas, and then learned to dance salsa. Great fun and well organized!

Overall, a great experience--personnel, ship design and cleanliness were the high points.

Cabin Review

Sky Suite
Cabin S2 2121
Great large cabin, large closets, plenty of storage space, quiet hallway, full bathroom with bathtub. However it was underneath the casual dining venue so in the morning you could hear chairs being dragged. If you are a light sleeper you might want to pick a sky suite on another floor if they are available.
