I am sailing on this cruise, with my wife and her friend. Because of the time we eat I never get time to go to the FOD meetings.
I get quite a bit of free time to myself on a cruise as she rests most afternoons at sea and goes to bed early.
This will be our fourth cruise on eclipse with a fifth already paid for on September 8th to the Med.

Hi . We are sailing on Celebrity Eclipse on 6th October 13 as well. Our first Celebrity cruise was on Eclipse this May. We loved it so much we booked for October whilst on the ship. Never done that before. Let us know if you have any questions about the ship

Me and my partner are going on P&O Aurora October 12th to the Caribbean....
My ex is on the Royal Caribbean (Adventure of the sea) at the moment, sailing to Malaga.. A ship full of kids is not my idea of a holiday cruising the med..

Welcome to CC!

We are spoiled living on the west coast US and can go to Mexican Riviera, Hawaii, or Alaska without paying for air fare to other, more long-distance ports.

So the boyfriend and I are doing Alaska this month, and Mexico/Mexican Riviera next year. We always try to put together a small group, and really enjoy cruising with a group of our gay friends.

Want to throw in a Panama Canal and transAtlantic one of these days.

Sure would. There are usually 1 or 2 other couples on board or just chat with the crew!!!
Tho I feel like the poor relation booking a Thomsons cruise when it seems everyone else is going on the big boats with the big companies!!

We're still searching for the elusive "pink pound"

Don't worry about it, we have had better food, def better service and even better entertainment on Thomson compared to most 'big' companies we have sailed with!

Default First Cruise ever

Hi all,

London Couple here, 27 + 34, on our first cruise in October this year, Celebrity Eclipse from Southampton to Azores/Canaries.

Would be good to meet some more family aboard, especially if they can share some cruise tips!

Hi Jay,
We've just come back from a cruise around the Med on the Celebrity Equinox. We enjoyed it so much, we booked to go on her sister ship, the Eclipse, at Easter 2014 for a Trans Atlantic crossing, Fort Lauderdale to Southampton.
By booking on the ship, we get $200 on board credit (plus one other deal to be determined later) and by booking through Pied Piper, the group rate they get made the cabin about $200 cheaper as well.
All in all, not a bad deal.

We had to cancel our cruise. My dad was given weeks to live so we just had to cancel. But sadly he passed away 10 days after we cancelled. Now hoping the insurance will pay out the 70% we lost!

So sorry to hear your sad news let's hope you don't loose out & can cruise again soon. I'm sure your dad would have wanted that. Take care.x
