First Time Experience

Sail Date: March 2011
Destination: Eastern Caribbean
Embarkation: Miami
This was my wife and I's first cruise. After a lot of research we plumped for celebrity and we were not disappointed. We flew from the UK to Orlando had 1 night then travelled to Miami to board the Eclipse. We decided to stay in a S1 Sky Suite really because if we didnt like the cruise at least we would be comfortable. Lovely suite but I would say that the extra expense may not be worth it having sneeked a peak into some other cabins. We did enjoy the being at the aft section of the ship.

Entertainment, staff, food in main dining room all superb in fact we have already booked for a med cruise next year we liked it that much.

The ports were so so. In San Juan we walked to the fort but I cant say the island did much for us. In San Martin we booked a horse riding trip which was excellent (Lucky Stables) and then a beach excursion in the afternoon.

We really enjoyed St Kitts and we booked the sugar cane train with celebrity which was excellent.

So overall More experience superb. As it was our first time cruising on the second day we both felt some stomach trouble but after taking a travel sickness pill we were back to full fitness within 1 hour so would suggest starting these pills on the first day (just in case). Having spoken to some fellow travellers they all felt the cruise was one of the best experienced. Less
