8th Transatlantic on Eclipse

Sail Date: April 21, 2015

Reviewed: 2 years ago

Traveled As: Couple

Room Type: Balcony

We live in UK in summer, Florida in winter and always use a repositioning cruise to commute. We have tried NCL, Princess, Royal Caribbean and Cunard but have settled on Celebrity as the line that best meets our needs. As Elite members of Captain's Club we benefit from various amenities which considerably enhance the overall experience.

Destinations on this trip were inspiring and some of the lecturers were outstanding.

Entertainment was original and professional.

Variety and quality of food were exceptional.

Worthy of special mention were Hotel Director Darren Tiller and Cruise Director Sue Denning.

Just one suggestion: although American owned and with a high proportion of American guests, efforts should be made to prepare Americans for a European experience, e.g temperatures in Celsius, times in 24 hour format.

Try to get to lectures and theatre shows ON TIME; people wandering in and out are very distracting for performer and audience
