Transatlantic from Southampton
Celebrity Eclipse Cruise Review to Transatlantic
Review SummaryAt 122\,000 tons the Celebrity Eclipse is big but not mind-boggling. Cabins and beds are quite comfortable. Decor is very nice. The works of art may be expensive but are not very artistic. Service on board is very good. Crew very courteous and helpful. Built in 2010 in Germany\, the Eclipse is a ship that will not disappoint. Varied and very good food at Oceanview Cafe\, the buffet option on the ship. Evening entertainment outstanding. One minor point: they should show at least 2 different movies per day\, not just one. Overall\, a fantastic trip on a wonderful ship from a great cruise line. And a steal. I paid $1\,255 including taxes and fees for a single balcony cabin on aa. by booking late\, about six weeks before departure. I know the cruise lines and travel agents suggest booking early\, but on transatlantic crossings booking late sometimes pays as ships are almost never fully booked.
