Celebrity Eclipse

September 2016 - Celebrity Eclipse to Europe - Western Mediterranean

Great entertainment, nice cabin, disappointed in dining room selection

The evening entertainment was outstanding night after night.  The live orchestra was also fantastic and added much to the performances.  Our cabin was comfortable with a sofa in front of the television.  We chose a cabin with an obstructed view but still the view was more than adequate and we enjoyed sitting on the balcony weather permitting.  The dinner menu seemed bland to me.  The pastas and Indian dishes offered more flavor and spices.  The service in the Moonlight Sonata was excellent as well as in our cabin. If you want to make the most of the ports, you need to do your homework. Even when you take the ship's tours, you are not necessarily told about sights of interest that you can see during your free time. If you decide to do the port yourself, you receive minimal information while on the ship.  All in all we had a very good time.

Malaga, Spain - Picasso Museum is top notch with a great audio guide. The shuttle bus from the ship worked great.
Genoa, Italy - The ships City tour was disappointing/Get the Hop On Hop Off bus which stops just outside the terminal
Lisbon, Portugal - The Sintra tour guide left us across the street from the National Plalace but did not identify it or tell us we could tour it. All she told us about was shopping. The Celebrity information did not say it could be toured either. I still enjoyed Lisbon/Sintra despite the tour.
Celebrity Eclipse Celebrity Eclipse - Go to the evening shows. Do your homework re tours and sights of interest.
La Spezia, Italy - I wish the staff had given us directions to the train station and told us about the boat to the CInque Terre. More info should be offered about seeing the port on your own. Monterosso is beautiful.
Villefranche-Sur-Mer, France - Monte Carlo Casino was beautiful. Monaco is very interesting. Eze was lovely. Go to the Botanic Garden at the top.
