  1. Help, trying to decide what to book for May/June 2021. We were booked on Solstice last June so we have a credit. DH is now eyeing the Eclipse instead. We’ve cruised the Solstice in the past but he’s concerned she’s getting old and missed her dry dock. I don’t know anything about the Eclipse, cruising out of Vancouver or that itinerary. Anything you can say about it would be welcome.
  2. Hi I just thought I would share . My brother in law has just been contacted by Celebrity To advise him his Eclipse cruise in February 2021 has been cancelled .Well done Celebrity letting him know prior to full payment Date of October 25th.He was offered either a 125% Future Credit Or a refund of his deposit.he will take the refund as he already has some booked for 2021 but I am happy to see Celebrity now acting in a more customer focused way ,which will hopefully help with their Customer retention .It has renewed my faith in them . required
  3. The website shows that there is a cruise on 26 March, 2022, for 11 nights, but when you look at the itinerary, it shows 12 nights. So the next cruise would start on either 5 April or 6 April, but I don't see a cruise listed for either of those dates. Does anyone have any insight into what is going on? TIA
  4. And what are they? Looking to hopefully go to Alaska next year, staying in an aft cabin and was curious what everyone's thoughts were. Also....how are those aft cabins? 😉
  5. Hi, Hoping to hear some advice on the selection of an Aquaclass stateroom on the Eclipse...I would like to have the bed near the verandah and access to the stairs to the spa. Does anyone have any pictures of the stateroom area near the spa stairs? I have the option of selecting stateroom 1527, 1523, 1519 or 1517 and would welcome any information or pictures. Looking forward to hearing from you! Thank you
  6. Which Cabin would you select on Celebrity Eclipse to Alaska. Please tell me the pros and cons between 1120 and 1231 Thank you!
  7. Hello all First time cruiser here and booked on Alaska cruise next summer. We are in a concierge cabin and I need to know how easy (hard) it may be to stow away 3 regular size cases. Thanks. Nigel
  8. Just home from the March 1- 30 sailing of the Eclipse. We were told NO ONE was sick with the virus. Now we found out a passenger has tested positive with the virus. The passenger was diagnosed by the ship's doctor with bronchitis about a week ago. They were sent back to their cabin. Then the passenger was diagnosed with pneumonia several days ago. Upon arriving home the passenger has tested positive with the virus. Way to go Celebrity for exposing 4,000 passengers & crew to the virus. Way to go Celebrity for sending thousands home exposing who knows how many to this. You are always saying the health & safety of our passengers is #1 to us. Looks like your bottom line is #1. Anyone who had symptoms of any breathing disorder should have been confined to their cabins. This passenger should have been tested before anyone was permitted to debark the ship.
  9. Well with all the concern about travelling in 2020, we chose to lift and shift to 2021. This will be our second trip to Alaska, and out first cruise on Celebrity. We are looking forward to the trip and plan to spend a day or so in Vancouver and we are looking forward to meeting all of our fellow cruisers. I can't wait to get planning on excursions, plans. We would love to get your input on making it the best trip ever. Please join and tell us about you and your cruising experience. Jeff and Mary
  10. Hi there, Looking at changing our cruise to next year which gives us several room options. My TA has indicated that the balconies are the same size in square feet, however I see the 1233 appears much bigger. Just wondering your thoughts if you have any insight. TIA
  11. Any help from people in the UK that were on this btb cruise of South America that ended in San Diego, would be appreciated. As you know on the 14th March we were told that we were going to debark in San Antonio, Chile as the cruise was not going to continue to San Diego, USA. We all had to pack our suitcases as we had to leave the ship the next morning. There was a mad scramble to book flights home, which we had to do independently as it was very difficult to get through to any airline. We did not have Choice Air so Celebrity would not help us. We managed to book but as it was less than 3 days before the flight we could not cancel when we were prevented from leaving the ship. Some people on the 15th April cruise that could not board the ship have been fully reimbursed their airfare. I know their circumstances are different but has anyone from the UK received any money from Celebrity for these flights to nowhere?
  12. Mind traveling #3... it’s time again to take your mind to distant places again. This time we would like to kidnap you to wonderful Iceland. Sit back, relax, click on the link and travel the world with us: http://www.travelandcruise.net/travellove_en/Our-Trips/Eclipse-Iceland-1/eclipse-iceland-1.html Stay safe and healthy (and at home)!!! PS: In loving memory of our travel companion Ursula, who sadly past away a year after this cruise.
  13. See this link for an article in today's San Diego Union-Tribune. I didn't know there were some South American passengers still aboard Eclipse. https://www.sandiegouniontribune.com/business/tourism/story/2020-04-30/cruising-has-stopped-but-ships-with-thousands-of-crew-members-still-in-san-diego-waiting-to-return-home Cruises have stopped, but ships with thousands of crew members still in San Diego waiting to return home
  14. I've having a hard time comparing them in terms of the physical layout.
  15. 10 years ago, Celebrity Eclipse postponed her naming ceremony in Southampton, and set off on a rescue mission to repatriate tourists stuck in Spain due to the volcano eruption 🌋 cancelling flights.
  16. Eclipse scheduled to end our voyage in Santiago Chili this morning has been denied entrance to the port. Currently offshore making circles. Next update scheduled for about 90 minutes.
  17. My view this morning: Eclipse still in port. Haven't seen any news today about what will happen with the South Americans who haven't been permitted to disembark from Eclipse. Millennium is here for previously scheduled resupply.
  18. I was wondering if anyone has stayed on Celebrity Eclipse cabins 8234,8236 and 8238? I'm planning on a cruise out of Sydney Australia on April 17 2022 for my retirement cruise. There are going to be 2 couples traveling with us and our plan is to book the above cabins. They are hump cabins and it appears that they have the bed the extra bed that hangs down from the wall (which we will not be using). There are 2 per cabin in our group. Does anyone have any reviews comments (good or bad) on these cabins. I know it's a ways out (I've been looking for quite a while), but I was wondering your thoughts. Our TA stated that there is an over hang on the balconies with is good for shade or rain but I was wondering about how it looks. Pictures are wonderful. I've also seen videos of some of the different cabins on the ship. I've noticed that the bed is pretty tight along the bottom near the wall but I don't think that would be a issue for us. Any ideas? Thanks!
  19. Eclipse is docked next to Disney Wonder. Haven't seen any reports yet about disembarkation status.
  20. A break from all the virus threads. Currently on the Eclipse, coming around Cape Horn on Sunday. Weather forecast shows probable E-ticket ride! Google cape weather. For us, lovng it. IMHO, anyone not prepared for big weather shouldn't do the horn! (Bucket list trip).
  21. Any news on what they plan do on Eclipse for the 6 day dry dock in late March thanjs
  22. Hi everyone. Ok, so this is a delayed photo review of our recently concluded cruise on the amazing Celebrity Eclipse. I’ve been struggling to find time to start this review, and was sorely disappointed with my previous cruise reviews relegated to being without pictures thanks to photobucket. Anyway, in the interest of sharing our experiences, pictures and great time aboard this fabulous ship, it’s time to get down to doing a review! Our cruise holiday is pretty much the highlight of our vacations for the year. This year, it was kind of last minute but it ended up being our favourite cruise vacation of all time. DW and I decided to take this cruise less than 3 months prior to sailing. Here’s our itinerary 6th June - Mumbai to Dubai to London 7th June - London to Dublin (cruise starts) 8th June - At sea 9th June - Le Havre (Paris) 10th June - Le Havre (Paris) 11th June - At sea 12th June - Liverpool 13th June - Liverpool 14th June - Belfast 15th June - Waterford 16th June - Cobh/ Cork 17th June - St Peter Port 18th June - At Sea 19th June - Amsterdam (cruise ends) 19th June - Amsterdam to London 20th June - London 21st June - London 22nd June - London to Dubai 23rd June - Dubai to Mumbai Nick Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  23. Hello friends! I'm on the verge of booking the April 12-20 Hawaii cruise on Eclipse - and what stood out to me was the itinerary, I simply adore sea days. As someone connected 24/7/365 my favourite part of the cruise experience is getting away from it all! To date my previous 2 cruises have been on NCL - both to Bermuda, on Breakaway ('15) and Escape ('18). I personally preferred the Breakaway and while I quite enjoyed NCL, I'm seeking something a bit more elevated and to try another line...so Celebrity was naturally a great fit! That said, as much as I'd love to cruise on the Edge or Apex (this is my first time on Celebrity, coming from NCL) I'd love to know if recent Eclipse cruisers (I know she's due for a refurb early next year) would recommend the ship and could comment a bit on the condition of things? A few areas I'd love any opinions or insight on, both as they pertain to the Eclipse and the Celebrity experience overall: I understand that "flexible" dining seats every 30 minutes. I prefer to dine at a solo table where possible, not sure if this would be accommodated? Perhaps my favourite sea day activity is enjoying the spa facilities and a heated lounger. Aside from AquaClass guests, are "spa passes" offered? I believe most cruise lines don't - but I'm also a fan of afternoon tea. Does the ship offer this on any day(s)? How did you find the value of the beverage package? I'm comparing it to the UBC on Norwegian. For those who have done Celebrity to Hawaii - any excursions (from the line or otherwise) you'd advocate for or suggest skipping? Thanks so much for the insights. I hope to see some of you on board 🙂 Kind regards, Adam
  24. We are new to Celebrity - would appreciate some opinions. We are looking to book Alaska 2021 in a Celebrity Suite. Do I want deck 10 (with other staterooms above but a more open veranda) or deck 11 (with public spaces above but a more sheltered balcony which would be good for rainy Alaska). Specifically looking at 1233 or 1615 for larger balcony and port side. Thanks! Kathi
  25. My husband and I just returned from a 7 day Alaska cruise on the Celebrity Eclipse Sept 1-8 2019. It was one of my best cruises, and probably the most relaxing one. Since I was on a brand new ship, the Norwegian Bliss last January, I will be doing some comparisons. On the Eclipse I was able to relax more, and it was less crowded than on the Bliss. The Eclipse has 1426 staterooms with 2850 passengers. The Bliss is much larger with 2043 staterooms and 4004 passengers. The Eclipse was more quiet and relaxing than the busy energy on the Bliss. Since I wanted peace and quiet on this cruise, the Eclipse was the better one for that. When it comes to the embarcation lunch, the Bliss did much better for it’s passengers. The main dining room was open for ALL passengers as well as the buffet and the Local. With the stress of travelling, standing in line, checking in, customs etc. I like to sit down in a peaceful setting for lunch, and that was not available for me on the Eclipse. My options was Sushi on Five or the buffet. The buffet was crowded and busy, and not a good start on the cruise. I definitely had better options on the Bliss. We enjoyed the dining on Eclipse better than the Bliss. The Manhattan room on the Bliss was extremely noisy, while the Midnight Sonata on the Eclipse was quiet and calm. The service was much better on the Eclipse, and the food was better. The one negative on the Eclipse was that the 2 person dining tables were extremely close together, so it was like we were on a table for 4. On the Bliss we did not have that problem. We had Select Dining and it worked very well. Our cabin was 8279 which is one of the large balcony cabins on the bump. I spent most of my time on the balcony with my book, Diet Coke, Hot tea and blankets. This balcony, and a large balcony I had on Norwegian's Pride of America are the best balconies I have had. I am grateful to all the contributors on this forum who was able to help me find the perfect balcony for me. Since spending my day on the balcony is so important to me, and I don’t want to run to a bar whenever I want my Diet Coke, I brought my own 12 pack onboard. For others being able to bring some soda onboard is not important, but for me it is. It was an irritant for me that I had to go to the bar on the Bliss every time I wanted to drink some Diet Coke on my balcony. Norwegian’s ban on bringing soda onboard may be why I won’t choose them again. For others not a big deal, for me it is. One place where Norwegian did better on the Bliss, than what Celebrity does is the bathroom. Here is a picture of the spacious bathroom, with a fantastic shower on the Bliss. n I think the entertainment was good on both the Eclipse and the Bliss. I especially like the Paul McCartney tribute band on the Eclipse as well as their production shows. The singers were better on the Eclipse. The observation lounge on the Eclipse was forgettable. I didn’t even remember to take a picture of it. I will never forget the one on the Bliss with its 5 food stations and bar. Lots of loungers and places to sit or lay down. Here are some pictures. Bliss observation lounge The last portion of my review is where Eclipse wins. It is not even a competition the Eclipse is so much better than the Bliss. Service. On Norwegian Bliss you could feel the crew did not want to be there. They did the minimum they could get away with, and hardly ever smiled. On the Eclipse I was always greeted warmly with a smile. The servers knew our names. The bartenders knew our names, Our stateroom attendant, Menino, was amazing, and the service was excellent wherever we went. It was the best service I have experienced on all my cruises. This is the reason I will continue to cruise with Celebrity. So in summary: If you don’t mind being nicled and dimed, and If you want lots of activities (co-carts, lazer tag, bowling etc.) and you have young adults, teens and kids in your party, then the Norwegian Bliss is the ship to go on. If on the other hand you want peace and quiet, wonderful music everywhere, great food and a more elegant setting, and fantastic service, then the Eclipse is the way to go.
