April 2017 - Celebrity Eclipse to Europe - Northern Europe
After 23 cruises you can get picky but from start to finish the cruise on the Eclipse was perfect. From the slick reception at Southampton to the disembarkation 8 days later there was nothing my wife and I could criticise. The food was exceptional, the service impeccable, the shows spectacular and needless to say the ship amazing. We did not use the specialty restaurants, we did not feel it necessary...the food in the main dining room was so good. Our servers, Achmad, Jackson and Benny the sommelier, could not have been more attentive and helpful. Celebrity certainly lived up to its 5 star rating.
The cruise through the fjords was beautiful with snow covered mountains, frozen waterfalls, running waterfalls where the sun shone, sheer cliffs and lovely towns and villages. All made wonderful by the wall to wall sunshine from day 1 to day 7...apparently an unusual occurrence for Norway at this time of year. We were lucky!
