7 Night Western Caribbean (Miami Roundtrip)
Sail Date: March 19, 2011
Ship: Celebrity Eclipse
Cabin Type: Balcony

Ideal cruise for resting and rejuvenating after a harsh winter. The food was better than expected and the staff were very pleasant and responsive. The ports were unremarkable but enjoyable, nonetheless. The Cruise ship recommended excursion on a catamaran ride to a Cozumel beach was choppy and rough and much too long. An booked excursion to a beach in Roatan proved to be a bit unsavory as the driver took us on an unrequested detour and questionable stop on the island before returning to the pier.
The ship's entertainment ranged from excellent (Sound Decision A Cappella Group) to cloyingly irritating (Cruise Director Nick's overuse of "ahh-mazing" and unrelenting demand for audience to make some noise). Overall, however, this was a beautiful vacation with perfect weather.

Food and Dining

5 out of 5
Too good! Especially enjoyed lunch at Aqua Spa Caf - a nice change from heavy eating at breakfast and dinner. Drink package wasn't needed for us. We were able to enjoy ourselves to the fullest under the influence of sobriety.
