Hi Bill, I don't remember ever disembarking from Eclipse in the Passport Bar area itself but I'm pretty sure we have disembarked from Deck 3 forward. I have a distinct memory of walking down the cabin corridor on Deck 3 to disembark. Now, we could have been heading to the forward stairs to go down to Deck 2 where a lot of disembarkations take place, but either way the Passport Bar would be a handy meeting place in that scenario. We have also disembarked directly from the Martini Bar area on numerous occasions which would make that a less than ideal spot to meet as half the Martini Bar area is taken up with barriers and card readers. I would recommend Cellar Masters on Deck 4 as a meeting place instead as I never seen disembarkation take place directly from there.

Thanks so much. That is very helpful information.

We spent a month on the Eclipse in 2016 but haven't been on her since.  But we board on March 10th for a B2B2B so I am enjoying this thread very much.  Will be following closely.

You should check in on the Eclipse March 10th and 24th roll calls. They are very active with lots of great tours, activities, and good people. I don't recall seeing you on either of the roll calls. We are joining a group of good friends but expect to make a lot of new friends like we do on every cruise.

Friday Nov 10

We have sailed into Kotor, one word spectacular!!!!!

We met friends last night and ate in the main dining room. It was very good and our waiter was very attentive.

Our plans are to tender into town today once you don’t need a tender ticket, walk around and have a bite of lunch.

Norma,

Where and when do you get a tender ticket on Eclipse? When do you not need one?

We loved Kotor also. We had a great private tour that took us to 4 or 5 places including a walking tour of the old city.


Thanks, Bill

Good luck with the tendering!

We once waited 3 hours to get off Eclipse by tender in Split. We had been told not to go for a ticket until we were ready to get off. Those in the know had collected their tickets before breakfast.

I’m glad that I am now Elite and should get priority tendering!

 

P.S not sure why the ‘quote’ hasn’t quoted- another glitch.

Tender tickets are handed out starting Around 7:00am, I think it depends on what time the ships is arriving. If you want got get off early be there early. Today tickets were given out in the Cellar Masters on deck 4. They asked you to wait somewhere comfortable till your tender number was call.  Keep in mind you will not be the first people off unless you are a Zenith, in a suite or on a tour. Once the majority of people are off the will make an announcement that tender tickets are no longer needed. You will then proceed to deck 3 and they will escort you to deck 2 and the tender.  Today they started tendering abou 8am and called 50 tenders, yes I said 50 tenders befor the no tender ticket required was announced, that was somewhere around 11-11:15am.

Norma, thanks very much. That is helpful. I know you said that the time the tender tickets are handed out depends on what time the ship is arriving. Since your tickets were handed out starting at 7:00pam, what time did you arrive? I'm trying to get a feel for the relative time to expect them for other port arrival times.


Thanks, Bill

Bill we arrived at 7:am, knowing passengers I sure they were lined up before 7am for a ticket. If my memory serves me correctly I thin the first tender was called about 7:30am

Saturday, Nov 17, we are in Zadar Croatia, sunny and beautiful again. We are so lucky with such great weather!!!! It’s November could be rainy and cold. Really no plans for the day, we may go into town. There is a shuttle into town, cost $15.00 US. Round trip.

yesterday we took the tender into Kotor, such beauty, hope my pics do it justice. Lots of cats and dogs roaming  freely. Cute shops and cafe’s. Really hated to leave.

all cobble stone streets, some very slippery.

Two things I love - visiting Kotor on a cruise ship and Celebrity’s coconut macaroons 😋 - top shelf, end jar.  Thanks for the memories.

Hi Norma,

 

thanks for posting this. I decided to cancel the TA to Buenos Aires because I opted for a med cruise in October instead (have already done South America) but will be following along. I love Buenos Aires.

 

please give Liesa my regards. hope she is doing well.

Sunday Nov 19 53degrees sunny and windy.

Today we are in Dubrovnik Croatia. 

RT Bus ticket $15.00 or day pass $20.00, we are here overnight. Planning to get off after the rush:):)

Liesa and Marleen ate at Sushi on 5 last night. It was a one night only Indian meal Taj on 5. They thought it was good. I had dinner in the buffet, they had swordfish it was excellent.

We were invited to the sail-in to Dubrovnik at 9:00am, didn’t happen for us, way to cold with the wind blowing. I enjoyed the sailin from the comfort of an armchair in Cafe Al Bacio.
