    Solstice vs Eclipse

    We're looking at Alaskan cruises in June 2020. We went to Alaska in 2015 on the Solstice and loved it. This time we are looking at both the Solstice and the Eclipse. Solstice leaves Seattle while the Eclipse leaves Vancouver. Itinerary's are the same except the Solstice goes to Skagway, and the Eclipse goes to Icy Strait Point. The price is almost the same, except Seattle is a little more in port fees. We've never been to Vancouver and it looks like it's beautiful. We've never been to Icy Strait Point, but it looks like there is not much there. We've been to Seattle, and there is a lot more there for us to see. We rode the train in Skagway last time, not sure if we would do it again. Hotels are expensive in both cities and it looks like airfare to Vancouver would be a little more expensive. Give me your thoughts and help us decide. Picture is from our 2015 trip

    Eclipse internet package

    Looking at the internet package on Eclipse- after paying for a package do you still have a charge for using it?
  3. I am confused about what exactly "Kilauea Volcano (Cruising)" means for two days on our cruise after leaving Hilo and before arriving in Kona. Are these just days at sea? Or does the ship just leave for an evening cruise around the volcano and return to port for the day? Also does the ship dock in Lahaina or are there going to be tenders?

    Eclipse questions? Ask here

    Boarded yesterday in Buenos Aires. From here it’s Around the Horn, then on to San Diego. Any questions? Ask here.
  5. Hello, I am looking at a cruise to Alaska on the Eclipse and was wondering what kind of facilities it has for teens and tweens? What has been your experiences as a family on the Eclipse? How are the kids clubs and are there some family activities? Our kids are experienced cruisers and have been on Disney, Hal, and Royal before. My wife and I have cruised Celebrity a few times but never with the kids. Any experiences and thoughts would be welcome. Thanks.
  6. New cruiser to Celebrity....What are some good Veranda cabin locations on Eclipse...Anyone have some pics from outside with cabin #'s included. Right now I'm booked in #9290..when I booked rep said it was a good location and surprised it was still available. Also just on the off-chance I can upgrade....any Concierge or Aqua-Suites I should avoid. I don't think there's a chance to go with a Sky-Suite although the final payment for my cruise is next Tuesday and I'll certainly be checking. Thanks all of you for taking the time to respond to this newbie X'er.
  7. We are going on the Eclipse leaving from Buenos Aires on March 11th. And looking at excursions in Patagonia. We are either two or three people and wondered if anyone has done research and is looking for others to join in perhaps private tour together.

    43 days on the Eclipse

    One of the dictionary definitions of “eclipse” is to do or be better than someone or something. I could not say it any better. Four of us spent over six weeks on the Eclipse from November 10 to December 23 (Europe, TA and South America) and it was our best trip ever! We have taken many cruises, with multiple cruise lines, over many years and this ship eclipsed them all. After the holidays I will do a more detailed review but for now, I will cover what we believe made this the trip of a lifetime. Cruise Director - Alejandro: We will miss this incredible CD. I am not sure he ever sleeps. There must be two of them. He is very comical but does not steal the show. We so looked forward to his evening show introductions. In the past, when the show ended we would sprint to the exits. Not with Alejandro and we were not alone. Eclipse Orchestra - Led by Roman this tightly knit group was the best. As you can imagine with a trip this long, sometimes the guest entertainer can be ordinary. This talented group would make the ordinary good and the excellent even better. with other ships dropping live Orchestras, please Celebrity keep yours. Shows we not even be close with piped in background. Celebrity Singers, Dancers and Acrobats: Ok, maybe not the best ever over the years but, without question, right up there. We had seen some of the production shows on previous cruises but, as it had been awhile, thought we would give them a go. It is amazing how much better they were when the talent level is increased. Euphoria was especially top notch. Guest Entertainers - yes there were a few misses but to each his own. What we may not have liked, others did. Overall, we were very pleased with the talent. There were only a few nights we were not pleased. On those nights we stuck it out just to hear Alejandro at the end. I will only name a few that we thought were very, very good. Gilley and the Girl Five O’Clock Salvatore Hassard Solomon Jaye Richie Minervina (the only standup comic on the trip and we wish there were more) Pamela and Edgar - Tango Dancers on the last night in South America - please more of this. OMG were they the best! String Duo - wish I could remember their names Rita Ann Austin Ben Mills Victor and Denisa Mark O’Malley Staff: From Captain Michael on down, some of the best we have experienced. Officers who get involved, staff with energy and smiles. If the staff who are cleaning rails, washrooms, hallways etc do not think that a pleasant hello is appreciated, they are wrong. We pretty well had the same main dining staff the whole trip. Let’s start with Cevrinne our dining room hostess/greeter. Never without a smile. After a couple of days she somehow remembers everyones room number. With lineups of hungry tourists she always remained professional, curtious and kept here sense of humour. You will be very lucky if you have Gally - our wine stewart, Antonio - waiter and John - asst waiter. Also our room attendant, Amelia was a 10! Food - main dining room food was very good. There was a fair bit of repetition in 43 days but there was always something new to try. We tried all the specialty restaurants and were very pleased. Ship - Ok, maybe getting a bit tired in places but a major refit is in the schedule. Overall the ship is spotless and well maintained but some updates to furniture will be needed in the next year. No complains on the six different balcony rooms we had and the ship. Itinerary: I will detail it more later but Croatia, Malta, Rio, Ushuaia, Punta Arenas, Montevideo, Punto Tombo (penguins) and off course, rounding the Horn and Beagle Sound (Glaciers) were of note. The weather did not hurt (2 medium rough days and 3 rain days out of 43) The entire staff of the Eclipse should be proud. Thanks so much for really making this the trip of a lifetime! Oh, I almost forgot. Thanks to the large group from Canada’s Capital. So nice to hook up from time to time. We made some great friends and see you at the next wine and cheese or coffee get together. If you are reading this be sure to add in things I may have missed. I hope this helps. If you are travelling on the Eclipse in the near future, lucky you.
  13. Hi everyone, I booked an aft cabin on Eclipse (1200) which is next to a suite on the corner. Do those cabins also have an outside connecting door? (The other cabins on aft have outside connecting doors, but I'm worried because of the deck plan layout if this is the same for my case.) Thank you! Sebastian
  14. While my husband and I have sailed on the Eclipse previously, this fall will be our first time in a suite. If anyone has any tips to share about how to maximize our suite enjoyment, would you please post them here? Thank you!

    Eclipse - Persian Garden

    We’re staying in a sunset veranda - is it possible to buy a pass for the Persian Garden for the length of the cruise ?

    Celebrity Eclipse [video]

    Even built in 2010, she made her first call yesterday . tQKNCIcjsvs
  18. Lots of comments re mosquito problems. Do I need to wear long pants, long sleeved tops for Peru, Mexico, Chile etc. Will mainly be using the ship excursions, but doing our own thing for a couple of destinations. Also do most countries take US dollars? Thought maybe we would take some Chilean pesos and US dollars for the rest? Any help much appreciated.

    Hair Dryer on Eclipse

    I was just wondering what the blow dryer is like on the Eclipse. Is it different in concierge? Does anyone have a picture? Thanks Michelle
  20. Here is my dilemma: we are cruising with our DS who is 3 years old and currently booked in a concierge cabin. A family veranda and a sky suite came available for a reasonable price, so I'm trying to decide which room to change to! Family veranda is ideal because of the two separate bedrooms but I don't know when we will be cruising again so I would LOVE to experience the "suite life"... For those of you who have traveled with children or with 3 or more people in a sky suite: is it noticeably bigger than a regular balcony room? I'm wondering how much of the extra square footage is taken up by the bathtub/bigger bathroom. Because our DS still naps, we spend at least 2 hours during the day and retire early in the evenings to our stateroom. We have 5 sea days, so I feel like we will be spending a lot of time in the stateroom. Is there any way to put up a partition so we can separate the bed and the living area?? I wonder if they would let me hang a curtain wall to wall somehow... The Sky Suite that is available is 2128, which is located below the Oceanview Cafe. I've done my research and the complaints about the noise from above seems to range from not too bad to so disturbing that the occupants did not enjoy their cruise at all! Should I not take the risk of booking this suite in case the noise is unbearable? Any way to dull the noise in the stateroom?? Please share your wisdom and experience with me!! Thank you 🙂
  21. During the days that the ship passes by the several noted Antarctic locations as printed in the itinerary, is there any narration from ship crew by way of explanation as to what we will be seeing? I prefer to watch from my obstructed view balcony on the starboard side heading south but do you think i'd be better served to go up on deck to see? Thanks in advance for the help.
  22. Hello! Because we do get wifi, and I love live from threads, I'm going to do another one. So far, 100% on X, although I've yet to stay live, I have always finished. So here goes another one. Tomorrow (Wednesday) at oh dark thirty, we are heading to Houston with a 9 hour layover and then onto Buenos Aires. First, a bit about me. I'm a very experienced Princess cruiser, who tried Celebrity for the first time in 2017. My first Celebrity cruise was an Eastern Caribbean with my sister, followed a month later with an eastern Med on the Reflection with my husband, who will henceforth be known as Glen, because that's his name. In July of 18, my sister and I did Western Caribbean. So this is my fourth X cruise, and first time on the Eclipse. We booked this while on the Reflection. We'd done the Antarctica drive by in 2010 on the Star Princess, and loved it, so we thought it would be fun to do again. So we booked on board. About a year earlier, we'd interested some friends in cruising, and had done a coastal cruise with them earlier that year. We thought it would be fun to have company so we convinced them to join us. They will be known as Mike & Kathy (and if they want they can add their thoughts here too, since they are both members of Cruise Critic). So the plan was that we would go to an airport hotel tonight, Tuesday, because nobody was willing to drive us up here (we live about 25 miles south) at 4:00 am. So here we are in our room, getting ready for what will amount to a power nap before our 4 am wake up call. We're a little concerned about TSA times, but so far things seem OK. Mike & Kathy are flying non stop from LAX to EZE, and we will meet them in the hotel there. We're in Business class, and I was hoping to see the new Polaris Lounge in SFO but apparently not this time, as we board 5 minutes after they open. We will see the new one Houston tomorrow. More tomorrow, when I have lots of time.
  23. What production shows are on the Eclipse now.

    RS on Eclipse

    We've just booked a cruise on Eclipse in a Royal Suite on Deck 11, based on the information provided on the X website. It appears from the cabin diagram on the site that the RS has a separate half-bath near the door to the suite. Would someone who knows that suite be so kind as to confirm that is the case? Thanks for the help.

    Eclipse Elite Happy Hour

    Anyone recently off Eclipse? Wondering if the Sky Lounge was open or the 3 vouchers or both.
