We took a spring break Caribbean cruise on the Celebrity Eclipse a week ago. Before the cruise, I had looked over every review on this site in anticipation of our trip. This was our first cruise, so the excitement, and the anxiety, were pretty high. I felt it was my responsibility to help out others like the other great reviews helped us...so here goes.
We are a couple in our low 30s. We were turned on to Celebrity by our travel agent. He suggested we would enjoy it because of it's high class, modern approach to the experience. In addition, knowing our love of food and wine, he said it was the way to go. He was right.
Embarkation was a breeze. PoM handled that very well. You are greeted onboard with champagne and a string quartet playing...perfect. While we waited for our staterooms to be available, we went to Bistro on Five and had lunch. By the time we were done, our staterooms were available.
