Service and Staff

3 out of 5
Didn't think the service was as good as previous cruises on Celebrity. Not sure if true but it seemed like most venues were understaffed. However, our room steward Jason was excellent.

Ship Quality

I think the Eclipse was scheduled for an overall that didn't get completed. It needs some work.

Cabin / Stateroom

Cabin was fine and Jason our Steward was excellent

Ship tip

If you can afford it - use the Specialty Restaurants more often.

Nice stop in Brazil

Ilhabela, Brazil

2 out of 5
Only giving bad rating because it poured rain all day and our morning excursion was a big washout. Therefore can't really assess the stop.

Buzios, Brazil

4 out of 5
Very nice stop. Took excursion that covered all the island highlights

Rio De Janeiro, Brazil

5 out of 5
Very nice stop for basically 3 days. Going to the Sambadrome Carnival Parades was the highlight. Took four excursions that covered all Rio has to offer from Christ the Redeemer to Sugar Loaf to Copacabana Beach, etc.

Punta Del Este, Uruguay

5 out of 5
Great beach resort city

Montevideo, Uruguay
