  3. Celebrity Eclipse
Just spent 14 nights on the Eclipse and was a amazing choice too being our very first cruise. We a group of 4 ( 2 couples ) all being novices when it comes to cruising. My thoughts as follows :- Boarding . A complete breeze ! Very well organised no problems at all. Cabin. We both had inside rooms ( 8143 & 8145 ) which meet all our needs, Comfy , Plenty of storage space , Very nice bathroom and kept clean by our Stateroom Steward Lucy. Dining. We ate in the Moonlight Sonata room 12 out of the 14 nights and had a fantastic experiance , Very good service , Fantastic food . If we had a complaint . and it's only minor, it would be that the time between courses can be a bit short. Would have liked a little longer to fully enjoy the previous dish. On some occasions the next course would be in front of us within 2 minutes. We also dined " out " in the Tuscan Grill which was an extra charge but was worth it with again stunning food and great service. Ocean view Cafe. Was very good with excellent choice and variety. Can be busy for breakfast and the wait for certain eggs / toast can be a bit long but didn't cause us any undue stress. Overall this venue was very good. Entertainment. Again overall very good and very enjoyable. Theater shows were first class , West End style shows, Tribute act's , Singers / comedians were all good fun. The in house band were below par as were the DJ's in the Quasar " night club " . Many times we stopped in the Quasar to find it empty or people sitting there looking bored as the music was bad. 70's / 80's / 90's would have gone down well as would 60's but why he was playing rap / re mix / recent music i don't know . The DJ never took the hint as people walked in and out and left the dance floor empty. We even tried later times and it was still empty ??? We weren't looking to party late in to the night but just to have a drink and a sing song. Overall . We throughly enjoyed our first cruise and would have no hesitation in recommending this ship to anyone. Already looking to go again but will have a window room this time !! Footnote. Can Celebrity please sort out the Internet charges please ? Totally over the top , Probably the biggest moan we heard from other passengers, Not a deal breaker but would have been nice to post a few pictures of our holiday from the ship as all our friends and family were waiting and considering the amount the holiday was costing 15 minutes free internet would have been fantastic.

Fantastic !
