Celebrity Eclipse Cruise Review by BEENWALKING
- Sail Date: May 2018
- Destination: Baltic Sea
- Cabin Type: Concierge Class
We ate once in Tuscan, on the first night, when there are usually discounts. The food was very good as usual. We chose to book to go to the special "Tuscan Night Out" towards the end of the cruise, which was priced at almost twice the normal price of the normal Tuscan cover charge and promised to be something special...special food cooked by the chef with wines to match. 50 people only and accompanied by a senior member of the ships crew on each table. This proved to be incorrect. The menu was a truncated version of the normal Tuscan menu with the addition of lobster ( which we had had in the main dining room the night before) and the "wines" offered were available on the classic drinks package.... we already had this. The service was not up to scratch and the tables were badly organised. We complained after the meal to Guest Relations and the next day the Maitre'D of Tuscan personally dealt with our complaint to our satisfaction. Celebrity do need to re-think this option.
This was the only thing to marr a perfect holiday.
I woke up one morning at 4a.m and couldn't resist looking outside. The scenery was breathtaking. After taking photos and a video I had to make myself go back to bed and ignore the wonderful scenery as we glided through the fjord....I would have been shattered the next day if I hadn't
Approaching Geiranger the captain turned the ship through 360 degrees so all those positioned on any vantage point could see the Seven Sisters Waterfall and the equally impressive waterfall opposite it. We were simply spoilt with the scenery and became quite blazé on seeing yet another waterfall. I was constantly taking photos because the scenery was so photogenic. The ports had easy access for all.

Port & Shore Excursion Reviews
AlesundAgain we just walked. Check out the port on Google Maps before you go. Worth visiting Artiflex a wonderful shop with a wonderful owner who does not pressure you to buy anything. Antiques, art and a story behind everything. We did not buy but felt most welcome.View All 203 Alesund Cruise Port Reviews

BergenEasy to walk in after the free short bus ride to the port gates. Visit and eat at the fish market, visit Bryggen take the cable car (there are two but one requires a bus ride) or walk up the hill passed the white old fire station to get a wonderful view of Bergen.View All 638 Bergen Cruise Port Reviews

GeirangerJust leave the ship, turn right and follow the path cross the bridge join the path and steps alongside the river and eventually the rushing waterfall. Stunning. Lots of shops selling woollen clothes, trolls and fluffy reindeer toys if that is what you want.View All 143 Geiranger Cruise Port Reviews

Lerwick (Shetland Islands)We were blessed with lovely weather. Wander round the town and then out of town. Checkout, before you go, where Tesco is on Google Maps, call in for some Scottish Strawberries ( if in summertime...otherwise a sandwich if you must) then wander across the road to Clickminin Broch an ancient site which is fascinating to wander around...for free...It is next to a small loch. Sit in the sunshine and eat the starawberries. Then retrace your steps and veer to the right. Walk round The Knab, and then after a pint in The Queens call for chips near the port. Good to walk off the calories before dinner!View All 102 Lerwick (Shetland Islands) Cruise Port Reviews
