Fully enjoyed this cruise.  Particularly enjoyed the hospitality and friendliness of the Officers and staff on Eclipse.

Ship was kept up in great shape.  Extremely clean.

Food and service  in Blu restaurant was very good.  Especially enjoyed the quiet and more intimate aspect of this venue.  Buffet was excellent.

The highlight of our trip was our day at the private enclave at Labradee Haiti.  We had rented a cabana in advance, and had the time of our lives.

The beach and amenities were unbelievable.  Unfortunately this is not a port that is utilized often by Celebrity, as it is used frequently by Royal Caribean Oasis ships.  Celebrity can take a lesson from its sister line.

The only negative experience was embarcation at Port Everglades, and handled predominantly by contracted personnel.  Security screener confiscated an extension cord necessary for operation of my CPAP medical device.  She claimed the extension cord was a prohibited item and would only be returned at the conclusion of the cruise.  I insisted on speaking to a security officer from the ship, and after a 45 minute delay he appeared and cleared the item immediately.  I feel that Celebrity should have greater oversight of the boarding process, and have personnel readily available on the pier to  smooth out the process.  An inauspicious start to what turned out to be a great cruise.  Have booked for next years cruise on Eclipse.
