Celebrity Eclipse

July 2013 - Celebrity Eclipse to Europe - Northern Europe

14 Day Baltic St. Petersburg 7-20-13 Eclipse Cruise was great

This was our second cruise with Celebrity and was definitely the better of the two. Everything was great on the ship including food, service, accommodation and entertainment. We did not visit the premium restaurants, as the food in the Moonlight Sonata restaurant was more than adequate and suited our tastes just fine. The itinerary was great and the weather on port days was perfect. We booked a package of tours of five cities (Berlin, Stockholm, Helsinki, St. Petersburg and Tallinn) though SPb tours, that was fantastic. We only booked limited excursions in Brugge and Copenhagen through Celebrity. The Celebrity excursions were not great and definitely not good value, when compared with the SPb tours. The fellow passengers on this cruise were about 70% Brits, Scottish and Irish, about 20% Americans, 5% Canadians and 5% others. Most were 50 to 70 years old, with few families with young children. Everyone we met was extremely friendly and engaging.

Newercruiser's Tips

Stockholm, Sweden - City hall is interesting, Vasa Museum is over-rated. Visit historical museums
Warnemunde (Berlin), Germany - It's a long bus ride to Berlin (3 Hrs). Bus tours are really impacted by traffic and photo ops are destroyed by construction. Focus on limited interior tours
Copenhagen, Denmark - Forget Hop on-Hop Off bus, only runs to 4:30 PM, Canal boat tour is very nice,
