Celebrity Eclipse Cruise Review by FRED52
- Sail Date: May 2015
- Destination: Europe
- Cabin Type: Deluxe Veranda
There is one very small but very popular Coffee Shop area - always a challenge to get a seat. They need to take out the adjacent Gelato Bar and remove the World Bar (a charge for both and nearly always empty) and extend the Coffee Shop - so obvious I doubt they will!
Celebrity have further shot themselves in the foot by closing off 2/3 of the Sky bar on the 14th in the evening to their "Elite Guests". This was one good reason why I will not be travelling with Celebrity again. Nowhere in the daily opening hours did it say the Sky Bar had restricted access for mere ordinary guests - so I will take future business elsewhere.
The final straw was taking us to Stavanger on a Bank Holiday - when all the shops were shut. Why not juggle the itinerary and take us to Alesund or Gerainger on the Bank Holiday - where there are so few shops it wouldn't matter. On a previous cruise with another company the Captain juggled the itinerary for this very reason.
All of this was a shame as the Ship is very good, the staff exemplary - but for the above two reasons I will not be back.

AlesundA very quiet place but plenty to do in wandering around. The steps to the mountain top were closed for repair - just as well! All in all an enjoyable time hereView All 203 Alesund Cruise Port Reviews

BergenThe problem of being on such a large vessel meant we were berthed in the industrial port which required a bus shuttle to the city. On smaller ships, we have berthed a mere 5 minute walk away from the Bryggen.View All 638 Bergen Cruise Port Reviews

Mount DalsnibbaVery poor value for money with very little information from the guide. Way way too long at the Fjord Centre - we were all back on the bus at least 30 minutes ahead of time - this says it allView All 67 Mount Dalsnibba Reviews
StavangerThey took us there on a National Holiday (Thursday) when all the shops were shut! With a bit of thought and customer focused attention they could have rejigged the itinerary to avoid thisView All 273 Stavanger Cruise Port Reviews
