13 Night Transatlantic Eastbound (Miami To Southampton)
Sail Date: April 16, 2011
Ship: Celebrity Eclipse
Cabin Type: Balcony
Traveled As: Couple
Reviewed: 7 years ago

Pleasantly surprised by the spaciousness of the stateroom and the size and comfort of the bed. We spent a lot of time there! The buffet dining area and the associated outdoor bar (Oceanview) are a good place to spend time using a computer, reading, or just looking out over the ocean. We ate frequently at the Moonlight Sonata dining room and were consistently impressed by the quality of the food and the attentiveness of the staff. We didn't use the casino. We did see some movies onboard and used the library several times. The fitness area is well appointed and open long hours.

We just strolled around and did not take the expeditions. I would like to see the crater lakes if we returned.

I didn't do a shore expedition and spent only a short time strolling the waterfront.

We visited medieval Obidos. A very interesting trip, though necessarily rather brief.
Don't Miss: Do see Obidos if you haven't done so before.

Pros: Very comfortable stateroom and friendly staff.

Cons: Drink packages are overpriced and hard to make worthwhile.

Recommends Celebrity Eclipse? Yes!
