I chose this cruise because some friends had done it and invited us to join them the second time, we were a little apprehensive and unsure what really to expect, but let me say in just a few words... absolutely fantastic! Where to start ? ship was very large but not too big where you get lost. We had a stateroom balcony room which again was not large but was very clean and comfortable, it was nice to sit out on the balcony in the morning and evening, especially when coming into port. Dining, there are so many options, if you want formal there are a la carte or casual the buffet, all good food in every restaurant as we tried most, it was nice getting dressed up every night and being a little formal but not stuffy. There are shows every night with two showings around 7.00pm and 9.00pm, we see a couple which were very good. There are several bars, we tended to go the Martini bar to meet and go back after dinner, the service on all the ship is 5* i have to mention the staff at the martini bar were superb and very entertaining, one man who stood out was Nyoman Sutrisnawan who should get a special mention, another was Colin Samuel who served around the pool again he deserves a special mention, he went above and beyond just serving and his duties. Excursions were well organised and enjoyable and not too long so you could enjoy half the day doing your own things. I would recommend both a cruise on this ship and all the staff and facilities. One advice would be to get to know the ship early on the trip as there is lots you wouldnt know about if you just sit at one bar or the pool. Read Less

I wanted to go on a Solstice class ship. The itinerary (from Aruba to Saint Martin) and the time of year(Just after Thanksgiving) were the reasons that I chose this cruise. 4 Friends traveled together and had a super trip. I would definitely sail this ship again! The ship is beautiful with wonderful public rooms. The central area however was not really a great room to watch entertainment though dancer's seemed to be having a great time. Even the Ocean Cafe (buffet) was a pretty area with a nice open to the sea dining addition with an overlook right to the sea. The two story dining room was modern and helped make each meal their special at least in terms of the room itself My favorite activity room was the Solarium for (I believe) 16 and over. helped you enjoy an indoor swimming and hot tub experience as I am not a fan of outdoor pools though lots of folks seemed to enjoy that area too. The show room was a typical entertainment area, but some poles did block a full view. We needed and got an accessible room (6141). It was a great location with no noise seeping in from public areas. The cabin had plenty of room for storage of both small and large necessities. The room was close to the forward elevators, but again no noise from the elevator entered our room. We ate most of our meals in the regular dining rooms. We had asked for table for 4, but this table was we had was really in close and direct line to another table for 4 and still a third table for 2. We did not get the separation that we sought. Food was mostly interesting and tasty. Generally we did not find the steaks off the regular menu all that good though they were listed among classic dishes. When we tried the salmon from this group we had better results. We could choose a number of dishes at each meal and those that had a sweet tooth found a place to try new treats. We ended up trying all of the specialty restaurants and here is our list of favorites in descending order, Murano, Qsine, Sushi on 5 and Tuscan Grill. Service in all was professional and added to our evening. Your tastes may change the order if you try these for fee dining choices. We were able to get some additional discounts as the cruise moved on. We did not have any problems booking these restaurants on board Eddy Jenkins was an engaging and friendly cruise director. He brought energy and fun to our sailing. His staff for the most part matched him in a nice variety of performances. We liked a number of folks who performed in the common areas. We did not like the Topper production show. Voices were good, and costumes and sets were bright. We just were not engaged by the story presented. On the other hand we did like Rock City which featured a variety of classic rock music with singers, dancers and specialty acts came together well. Overall we enjoyed the entertainment and liked the fact that we had a big show on the last night with Shades of Buble a trio paying honor to Michael Buble and his music. We also enjoyed the glassblowing demonstrations on the upper deck. The staff from the Captain on down were friendly and fun. Connie our room steward was always accommodating and our interactions from dining room to guest services were always pleasant ones. We were always greeting in a welcoming manner no matter who we dealt with on this voyage. Captain Leo was both competent in his PR roll and could very well have been a poster model for Captains. He was one of the first Captains who I could understand and even laugh with with his daily announcements. We took several tours among our group ranging from a sunset sail in Curacao to a historical tour in Antigua. That later tour turned out to be great but we had some confusion caused by the verbal description as being mild activity contrasted with the shore excursion ticket showing walking of a mile over rough surfaces. We did get a refund after reading that description as one of our group would have met some difficult time walking. In Curacao I wandered around on my own. (easy walk by ferry or pontoon bridge to downtown) followed by nice visit to a small Mariner museum and a Synagogue dating back to the 1700's. Read Less

This was our fifth cruise on Celebrity and our 15th cruise overall. The experience we had onboard the Eclipse was nothing short of terrific. The room was well maintained, the food excellent, and the entertainment was very good. The crowd seemed to be all experienced cruisers that knew the system and just enjoyed it all. The ports were pretty standard, but fun to see once again. The entertainment was very good....the production company was above average and Zoe Tyler, a singer from London, was the best I have ever heard on a ship. The service was friendly and quite professional. The staff was very approachable and pleasant. It was another beautiful cruise on Celebrity.....We are very loyal to this company. Read Less

Great ports from Curaçao and Aruba, to St. Lucia and Barbados etc. We were able to scuba dive and snorkel in some beautiful waters; and enjoy great beaches too! The food was very good in the restaurants; but we did take advantage of the specialty restaurants also. We highly recommend the evening entertainment, as they did an excellent job on many nights. The one area of disappointment for us was the total lack of Caribbean themed music with the guitarist, and pool-side band. Three years ago we found the strolling musicians playing carribean /Jimmy Buffett type music really helped relax and create a great mood for the trip. This year had more European musicians who did not know any Jimmy Buffet or Toes in the sand music. The pool band was very good and sang or played many good songs, and tried to accommodate! The blend of many different nationalities also help to create an even nicer environment and trip. We almost felt in the minoritity as Americans! Read Less

Our 14 night cruise on Eclipse was THE BEST of our 28 cruises taken, (two with Celebrity). The ship is looking terrific, both inside and outside. Constant maintenance has kept her looking like new. The friendly and enthusiastic efforts of all crew contributed materially to a very happy cruise for my wife and I. In particular the stateroom attendants, dining room servers and martini bar people were outstanding in service provided. Well done Eclipse! We stayed in balcony cabin 1068, a mid ship Concierge Club cabin (category C2). The cabin was fine, very quiet, no view obstructions, and very clean. We ate only in MDR and Oceanview cafe, skipping the specialty restaurants for the first time ever, This was because we found the food to be very good in the 2 venues we used. Quality in the MDR was good, no bad experiences. The menu is short but has adequate variety nightly, and all dishes were high quality. In our opinion food quality in Oceanview has improved over our last Celebrity cruise, and is superior to Princess, HAL and RCI, much better than NCL. Entertainment was improved over 2 years ago, some good comedy and general entertainment acts. The shows were OK , not really our style, but well done. Both embarkation and disembarkation were a breeze, no waiting and no problems. We were relieved after reading so may horror stories on CC. Some observations in response to issues we have seen raised on CC lately: .Buffet food was very good. The sushi was quite acceptable, if not great. Items cooked to order such as shrimp and steak were well cooked and tasty. .In the MDR we found the sommelier service to be funny/friendly and fast, no sign in our area of overly busy sommelier or slow service. .The treats in Cafe al Bocio are still free and do not require purchase of a drink. .The martini bar staff were terrific, and we absolutely enjoyed the bar at 4:00PM daily. We saw no sign of poor seating in the area, and the music was not too loud at all. . We did not experience any difficulty getting prompt service at any time in any bar. .Chair hogs continue to be an issue near the pool. We avoided that area seeking quieter spots which are plentiful. .We are not fans of the Curacao overnight stay, but it did not affect our enjoyment of the cruise at all. Hopefully those who do more touring than we do saw the benefit. In summary, a great relaxing and enjoyable cruise, with no issues at any time. We are a couple aged 70 and 71, who are looking forward to our next cruise, which will be on Celebrity for certain. Read Less

We are a retired couple from the UK who have been cruising, primarily with Celebrity, for 10 years. This was our 16th cruise, 13th with Celebrity, all but the first in suites. Since treating ourselves to a PH for a milestone anniversary in 2012, we have been hooked and have not downgraded since so only cruise once or twice every 18 months. We have Elite+ Captain’s Club status but this gives us few additional perks. We learned a few days before we left home that embarkation would coincide with the Miami marathon. Although we booked our pre-cruise hotel [including transfers] through Celebrity, we would normally take a taxi to the port. In view of the marathon, we were not sure if this would be sensible. Unsure of what to do, I contacted a fellow Brit working in Celebrity’s Miami office for local information. Her response certainly exceeded any expectations we may have had. She arranged for the local shore-side concierge staff to take care of our embarkation. But more of this later. Pre-cruise As well as our pre-cruise hotel, we booked our flights through Celebrity. What we had not realised, until we spoke to another person on the cruise at the gate, is that Celebrity provides a representative at the departure airport. They had been recognised and approached because they had attached their luggage labels before leaving home. I am sure that it would be useful to know that there is a representative there should there be any disruption to travel plans. After a very bumpy flight caused by the storms along the east coast of the USA, we passed through Miami Immigration and Customs rapidly and smoothly. In view of the weather disruptions, marathon and recent reports, we had low expectations and were pleasantly surprised. The Celebrity representative was waiting for us and we were soon on the way to the Biscayne Bay Marriott. Having heard how difficult it was to find a hotel in Miami leading up to the marathon, I believe that we got a very good deal through Celebrity. The hotel, itself, was OK but nothing special except that it had a view of the cruise port and we could see Eclipse on Sunday morning. Breakfast was very good and, although not included in our package, not expensive. We had booked two nights and just wanted to chill-out pre-cruise so we ate all our meals at the hotel. The only errand we had was to purchase flowers for the cruise. A short walk to Publix and we had a huge bouquet of alstroemeria for just $24. These were fantastic and looked as good on the last day of the cruise as the first. Embarkation: We were picked up from the hotel just before 11 a.m. by two members of the Celebrity’s shore-side concierge team. It was reassuring to be with a driver so familiar with the area during such a changing situation. We made it to the pier in very little time to be met by another member of the team who supervised our luggage drop. We were then escorted through Visitor Security and round all the queues to a special check-in area where our Seapasses were waiting for us. From there it was straight onto the ship with an escort to Michael’s Club – just an hour from being met at the hotel. Very shortly afterwards, our suite was ready. Here, everything we had requested in advance was ready for us – including a microwave they had actually bought especially for us! [My husband had loved having a microwave on Constellation and Millennium.] I was especially pleased to see that they recognised my preference for champagne by upgrading our welcome Perrier Jouet champagne to the Belle Epoque. After meeting our butler, Gene, he escorted us to Luminae for lunch. Here we were introduced to the Maitre d’, Nevena. Nevena was our waitress in Tuscan Grille on Constellation in 2010 and it was great to meet up with her again. Her energy and professionalism throughout the cruise was outstanding. We requested a larger table and Nevena ensured that one was available for us every evening. An attention to detail we really appreciated was having the wonderful Ravi as our waiter no matter where in the restaurant we were seated. It is not possible to have a smoother embarkation and the only drama was breaking a fingernail. Even that issue was eased by being able to make an appointment for a manicure during our short wait in Michael’s Club! Suite: The suite did not disappoint. It is a wonderful suite in a perfect location. What else is there to say? During the whole cruise Mus and Zoran kept it immaculately. There really were no signs of wear since the first time we stayed in it, over three years ago. Luminae: We much preferred the layout of Luminae on Eclipse to that on Millennium. It is split into two room, there was much more space between tables and there were proper tables for 4 rather than just tables for 2. In addition to Nevena and Ravi, Maggie, the sommelier, and Martina, our assistant waiter, were wonderful. Maggi ensured that we were able to drink the wines we preferred by the glass and the ever-cheerful Martina was a delight. Chef’s Table: We have taken part in a Chef’s Table on every cruise since it was introduced in 2011 and we enjoyed this as much as any other. As always, it is the mix of wonderful food and wine, great company and good service which make this event worthwhile for us. Marjan, Maitre d’ Specialty Restaurants, always tries to be innovative with the menu. This time, it had a slightly retro theme we really enjoyed. Other Dining: Breakfast we ate in our suite: my husband collecting what he wanted from the buffet and me from the supplies Gene kept stocked as arranged with the pre-cruise concierge. This worked perfectly for us and is preferable to trying to make room service or Luminae work. Lunch we either collect from the buffet or the pool grill to eat in our suite, on our balcony or outside at the back of the ship depending on the weather and sun. We find that the buffet is arranged well and has an excellent selection. The buffet during lunchtime on the final sea day had an exceptional selection of food. Michael’s Club: On our two previous cruises with Michael’s Club in its current incarnation, the room was packed every evening and, so, we were concerned about the inclusion of Sky Suite guests. It was difficult to understand how the room could accommodate any more people and it was very crowded during embarkation. However, at least on this cruise, our fears were unfounded and, otherwise, crowding was not an issue. Sylvia, the concierge, was efficient – in my opinion, the most important quality for a concierge – and Johnson, the barman, provided just the service we have come to expect. Shore Excursions: Large-group, bus excursions do not interest us and nor does general sightseeing so we rarely book ship or private tours however, this time, we booked four excursions pre-cruise. Two culinary tours were cancelled but we really enjoyed the other two. The Bridgetown, Barbados 4x4 Adventure to the Green Monkey reserve was good fun and we saw lots of monkeys! We were a bit worried when we saw how many people had gathered at the terminal for the tour but there were only 10 guests in each vehicle and there was no attempt to keep us all together as a group. This is a tour we would highly recommend. We would also recommend the Chef’s Market Discoveries excursion in Sint Maarten. We were a small group of six guests and three crew and visited both the Dutch and French sides of the island including fish, spice and vegetable markets where Niels, the Murano Sous Chef, purchased ingredients for our dinner in the evening. Then we went onto Grand Case, the “French Gourmet Capital” of St Martin, for a three course lunch before travelling back to the ship. Meanwhile, Niels had returned to the ship to prepare our special dinner held in Qsine where we were looked after by the Maitre d’ who was one of the crew accompanying us during the day. Ports: In addition to the two port where we took ship’s excursions, we visited Oranjestad, Aruba; Willemstad, Curacao [overnight]; Castries, St Lucia; St Johns, Antigua; and Basseterre, St Kitts [the only port we had not visited previously]. We are not beach people and in all these ports we just wandered around and, perhaps, had a drink in a bar although I did visit the Maritime Museum in Curacao. For us, the overnight stay was a negative but we are looking forward to our overnight stay on Sint Maarten on our next cruise so that we can spend more time on the French side of the island. One thing we did notice, because we often did not stay long ashore, is that it was usually quite late before the cold towel and drinks were available. Even those of us who do not go ashore for very long appreciate these amenities. Ship: The ship, like our suite, was in identical, perfect condition this cruise compared to our cruise in 2012. The only flaws would appear to be in the service provided by the Photo Shop and Guest Relations. It annoys me when I understand their systems better than they do and have to insist that they check their facts with their management. We had a large amount of pre-purchased [and, therefore, refundable] OBC, spent less than expected [thanks to the dreadful selection of stock in the shops] and had two tours cancelled and I did not want the balance of our account credited to our credit card. I was told, at Guest Relations, that I could not be refunded in cash and would have to go to the Casino where I would be charged 5%. Of course, she discovered that she was not correct but it leaves a poor impression on the last evening of the cruise. Incidentally, we had been able to withdraw cash from the Casino regularly throughout the cruise without a surcharge [because we were in a suite]. Conclusion: Yet another wonderful Celebrity cruise and we cannot wait the ten months until our next. Read Less

we are primarily princess cruisers, first time with celebrity. we were impressed and very satisfied with our trip. we tended to compare everything with what we have experienced with princess. we cruised on the eclipse. it is a very easy ship to navigate. cabin was the usual balcony setup. we thought the food on the food court was great. plenty of choices and it changed on a regular basis. cabin steward was the best we have ever had,,and we have cruised a bunch !!! the bella river duo was my favorite musical act on the ship. they were a pleasure and we tried to hear them once or twice a day.the perk package they are offering at the moment is a great deal !! the classic drink package is quite a bargain if you like a drink or 3. I mark them down in one area only. getting off the boat is quite chaotic. I prefer princess big time over X. evidently the tags they use are not too good. a lot of people lost tags which means looking at a lot of bags on the 3 different carousels. for the most part,,the excursions were great. only negative was the zip line. its about a hundred bucks and for that we got 5 wires ! the guised are great and the scenery at the old sugar plantation is marvelous,,but there are just not enough wires to justify the trip. swimming with the green sea turtles and interacting with stingrays,,GREAT !!!

Had cruised twice on the Constellation and enjoyed the Celebrity experience. Made the mistake of trying NCL for two cruises. Although the Getaway was nice the service and quality were no match for the Eclipse. We have been on many cruise lines and the service and crew were the best on Celebrity. We stayed in an Aqua Class cabin and it was clean, spacious, well stocked with spa quality items and had a large balcony. The Solarium (adult indoor pool) was nice and the chairs were plentiful and well maintained. The pool Butlers were fantastic and were keeping up with the items left behind by the passengers and kept the towel racks full of nice clean. The food in the Ocean View Cafe was very good and had many options, ( could use better bartenders working the bar). We ate breakfast in Blu which is reserved for the Aqua Class guests. the food was great and the Service was excellent. We ate in all three specialty restaurants and he were all good. Qsine was a little quirky at first but the food was excellent and it was a great "journey" through different kinds of food. Murano was the white glove French style venue. The food was excellent and the service outstanding. Tuscan Grille was the third, and our favorite. The entire staff was outstanding, and the food was fantastic. looking forward to our next cruise Read Less

We are long-time Celebrity cruisers, and we know what we like about the line. The most outstanding thing to us about Celebrity is that they set a high bar for performance, and they always deliver. Not that they are always perfect - they are human. But when something goes wrong, they move heaven and earth to make it right. We had a couple of minor problems on our last cruise (back to back Constellation in January), but the responsible folks took steps to right the situation, and constantly checked back with us to ensure that we were happy. THAT'S customer service. On this Silhouette cruise, every jot and tittle was perfect to the nth degree. Boarding was rapid and pain-free. The days at sea were relaxing. Even the weather cooperated! This cruise was so wonderful, we even recall the names and duties of so many with whom we interacted. The cruise had many high points, but perhaps the best was the constant variety of really fine music. The jazz group "Blue Velvet" not only had a huge repertoire, they were extremely talented musicians - and their vocalist really could knock out the tunes! They had an acoustic guitarist named Bear Stevens who knew lots of songs of many varieties, and could present many different genres in his own fine style. Very romantic for after dinner. Jeff and his orchestra were also super - very together, and clearly loved their work. Theater musical tributes included the 4 Seasons, Jeff Hughes as Elton John - SUPER job and he did several other gigs as well, and a Motown tribute band 3 guys who had those great old tunes spot on. There was a dude named Steelon who played a single steel pan and made it sound like the 150 person Peoples Revolutionary Steel Band (of the unlamented Peoples Socialist Republic of Granada). The ongoing star of the Eclipse musical firmament is, of course, the redoubtable Perry Grant. Perry has been wowing passengers for years with his wonderful instrumental and vocal talents, mixed with a slightly racy line of patter that keeps everybody laughing. As the reader can tell, good music is one of our favorite parts of any cruise, and this one met - nay, surpassed our fondest hopes! The Cruise Activities Staff - Sam and Maarten - were really good. They represent the cruise line the way any company would wish for its employees with maximum public interaction. To cite a trivial matter, they ran the Trivia games with a firm but friendly hand, resolving disputes in a way that left people smiling. Unfortunately for Celebrity, Sam is leaving for the bliss of wedded domesticity. While we wish her well, she will be missed by passengers and crew alike. Our stateroom attendant Julio and his assistant Rakesh were as good as we have ever had on Celebrity, as were our waiter Maynor and his helper Israel. This is not a light compliment - the best of the best is what we are saying! Indeed, this applies to all on the ship, from Vinay - the bartender in the Sky Lounge, to the many servers like Milka, Shomara, and Carlos. The less noticed among the crew - like cleaners and those with rest room duty - were always cheerful and smiling, with a good word. This is a happy ship! The food is well prepared and tasty. It is the same 14 day menu as it always is in the main dining room. Fortunately, there is enough variety to keep even the most frequent Celebrity cruiser happy. The specialty restaurants are all a cut above what we have seen when we have made the mistake of cruising ob other lines. Our favorite is Qsine - the small offerings are so unique and prepared with such care that we return time after time. That sums up why we return to Celebrity time after time - care, attention to detail, and the feeling that one is a unique and beloved family member returning home from time away. Read Less

This was my third Celebrity Cruise so I knew what to expect. But the Eclipse exceeded our expectations again! I don't know how they will top this cruise on my next Celebrity cruise! The 2015 ratings are absolutely justified. It has all been said re the ship, cabins, food, public spaces, shore excursions. This time we splurged on a junior suite as we were celebrating our 10th anniversary of our relationship on this wonderful ship. Dominic, our butler, was fantastic. The junior suite, called a Sky Suite, was at the back of the ship on the sixth deck was not a crazy amount more than a regular stateroom with a balcony. We enjoyed an oversized balcony with a good sized table for wonderful breakfasts served by Dominic. It was heaven. Being at the back of the ship was beneficial for seeing the beauty of the Carribbean, especially when going in and coming out of the ports of the beautiful islands. I enjoyed the glass-blowing demos on the 14th deck, the spa and the incredible beauty of the centre staircase and lobby. All of the shore excursions were good and I particularly enjoyed the American Cup Regatta. Also, it was great fun to ride a horse on the beaches and go into the water on horseback. While I am not new to cruises, this has been my best experience so far and it will be hard to beat. I will remember it for the rest of my life with fond memories. Celebrity really knows how to do it right and it is no wonder they get so many awards. Read Less
