Outstanding!!

Traveled As: Couple

Room Type: Suite

Great winter escape for us from the cold northeastern US weather. Eclipse is a beautiful ship, staff is outstanding and super attentive. Either excursions or poolside during day, followed by evening show, drinks in Michael's Club, dinner in Luminae Restaurant (a great addition to Celebrity), or one of the specialty restaurants, and the music (50s, 60s, 70s, 80s, British, Rock) in the Foyer!! If you didn't have fun on this cruise, it was your own fault. We had a great time !! 

Cabin / Stateroom
The layout of the suite is fine. The handicapped Sky Suites are on deck 12, which is directly under the Oceanview Cafe. Way too noisy with food trolleys being moved until 2:00 a.m. There should be handicapped suites available on other decks.
Embarkation and Disembarkation
Embarkation could have been a little more organized and a female pier employee directly lines was very rude. Disembarkation was excellent.
Ship Quality
Great ship and very clean. Only complaint is that the handicapped Sky Suites are on deck 12, which is directly under the Oceanview Cafe. Way too noisy with food trolleys being moved until 2:00 a.m. There should be handicapped suites available on other decks.
Destinations and Excursions
The catamaran excursion on the EXCELLENCE was the best ever. Best music, best staff. It rained on the way back to the ship and the staff made our time on the trip so much fun, we didn't even realize it was raining!!! Go on this excursion .. you won't be sorry !!
Onboard Activities
Music in the Grand Foyer at 10:30 p.m. was great. Also, in the Sky Club. History talk in the afternoon was interesting but the speaker was weak and spoke in a monotone.
Children's Programs Not applicable.
Entertainment
Celebrity entertainers shows in the evening were top-notch. Wish there had been more. Outside singing acts were great. Magician and comedian were just ok.
Service and Staff
Most friendly and attentive staff. They go out of their way to be helpful and always with a smile.
Food and Dining
Luminae Restaurant is a great addition to Celebrity. Whoever thought of this, gets a gold star !!!

Tip

Get to the pool deck early for best choice of lounge chairs.
