We did not visit Bermuda so that we could avoid a storm and this disappointed many passengers especially as we have heard that other cruise ships did dock in Bermuda.

We were also unhappy about the alternative port of call selected as being Le Harvre.

This was a poor alternative considering we could have gone to The Canaries, Madeira, The Azores or ports in Spain and Portugal or even stayed overnight in Lisbon as we only had half a day there.

We also feel Celebrity is cutting back and this was our 7th cruise on Celebrity (and 16th cruise in total) and the 5th cruise on Eclipse and this was not as good as the previous cruises.

We were on the Norwegian Pearl a couple of weeks earlier and that was much better.

Ship Tip

If you have goods confiscated at embarkation don't wait to collect them until you have left the ship as instructed on your debarkation instructions.
Ours was not put on the ship in Miami and until I asked for it the night before debarkation no one new it was missing and then it was to late.
