Review summary

The cruise was fantastic from beginning to end. The Eclipse was a great ship and the experience in Aqua Class was wonderful especially the Blu restaurant. Service all over the ship was superb. Loved all the ports.  We were lucky to have excellent weather for most of the cruise except the first few days on the North Sea and into Germany. After that, all blue skies and warm weather. This is unusual for the Baltic.

Loved Brugge. Take a canal ride. To save money, take the tram from the port to Blankenberg and train to Brugge.
