This cruise on the Celebrity Eclipse had to be one of our best.  We've been on 25 cruises with various lines but this cruise has made me a Celebrity customer for the foreseeable future.

The ship was spotless, the ports were exceptional, anytime dining allowed you to meet many more people than if we had selected the fixed early/late seating.  Anytime dining provides you with the flexibility to treat each day differently be on your timetable instead of that of the ship.

The meal choices each evening were expansive enough to make good choices and the Specialty restaurants were great especially the TUSCAN which was a beautiful restaurant and plenty of choices that we went back 3 times.  The entertainment was different and varied to satisfy all tastes.  Shows were great and all performers were entertaining. 

Celebrity also has a great Loyalty program - they truly make you feel that your loyalty is appreciated.  We already booked our next cruise.

Although we never experienced a wait for the anytime dining once you know when you want to have dinner it is good to call to make a reservation. It just gives you the assurance that you can plan your evening the way you want it. Also, ask to share a table, you meet new people each evening.
