"It Could Have Been a Ten!"

Sail Date: October 30, 2011

Reviewed: 5 years ago

Traveled As: Singles/Friends

Room Type: Balcony

The Celebrity Eclipse is "easy on the eye". She is well designed.

Pros: Excellent Staff attentive to every detail. Food was beautifully presented and it tasted great.

Cons: Sonata Dining Room

Recommends Celebrity Eclipse? Yes!

Ship Quality
The company should consider the addition of a miniature golf course on Deck 15 since it already has real grass growing up there.
Food and Dining
The Sonata Dining Room was the only disappointment. It was overcrowded. It felt more like a wedding banquet hall. Although the service was good the wait staff could not compensate for the crowded condidtions. Too many guests in too small a place.

I would hightly recommend that the company consider three dining times. Perhaps 5:30 PM, 7:15 pm, and 8:15 PM? Remove some of the tables to allow for better spacing. Consider replacing the existing rectangular tables with round tables for a more intimate atmosphere.

What a shame to have such exquisite food served in a inferior atmosphere. It could have been a ten!
Cabin / Stateroom
The only thing I missed was a readable alarm clock in my room.
Service and Staff
Broadway quality.
Cherbourg, France
Went to Mont St. Michel. Excellent tour.
Le Havre (Paris), France
Took the bus to Paris. The drive was just a bit too long for a day trip.
