Hi Chilton, sounds like we were on the same cruise. We departed Southampton 4th August, the weather was fantastic as was the scenery. This was our fourth cruise on Eclipse and have to say we agree with all your comments, especially about the entertainment. We did go to all the shows except one and do think that they need to up their game some what. The staff as always were excellent, our food was good except as you say the lobster was tough. We have had it before and had forgotten what a dispointment it was. We have also sailed on Silhouette [in May] and she was as good as Eclipse. I do not think that there is a cruise company that will get full marks for everything, but for us Celebrity gets as near as one could expect. Enjoy your next cruise on Eclipse!

Things have not changed with regard to the entertainment since we last cruised with Celebrity 2 years ago. This was a real down side to our holiday which was otherwise ok. The ship is beautiful and the food was fab back then (no tough steak for me!). Come on Celebrity get the entertainment sorted and I would be tempted back.
Hello Chilton. My husband and I have only ever been with Celebrity and have always found their ships to be very clean and the staff very friendly. We are going on the Eclipse in October to the Canaries and Azores in the same balcony cabin we had last October - can't wait. I agree that the entertainment on the odd occasion was not up to standard. With regard to the drinks on board, we found them very expensive, even a cup of coffee!! What really annoyed us was people being able to smoke in part of the SKY lounge, so if you wanted to lay out on one of the loungers looking out over the front of the ship, you could have someone smoking beside you!!!! People do suffer from asthma and other lung problems, so found it difficult to stay in the SKY lounge - come on Celebrity you need to address this problem! Do keep going with Celebrity they are still a first class company to sail with.
NB the entertainment on ANY ship can be hit & miss - you may or may not find a set of people you like. No end of reviews on here, all sorts of ships and lines, people liked this, not that , etc. Just because a given ship had a line-up you liked last time, no guarantee that'll happen the next one, etc, etc.
