13 Night Transatlantic Westbound (Southampton To Miami)
Sail Date: October 30, 2011
Ship: Celebrity Eclipse
Cabin Type: Balcony
Traveled As: Couple
Reviewed: 6 years ago
At disembarkation, they called at least a dozen numbers at one time and jammed the hallways and stairs in two decks leading to the gangway to leave, many of the folks were stuck in the mire for 45 minutes. There is no way to blame this amatuer stunt on the customs folks. If we could have tracked down the captain and hung his lame butt from the yardarm, we would have done so.
This was a perfect experience in just about every way except for the mediocre and simply fair service in select. But at the mess at the end, which we have not experienced on prior trips, I have to wonder if the company had been sold to a third world country over night.. Crummy way to treat folks and yes, I have photo!

This trip should be made on the cruise for the single purpose of viewing the beaches at Normandy.

Good service on bus and river cruise to Paris.
