Very enjoyable/more activities needed
Patricia Prince | August 29, 2014 | Celebrity Cruises | Celebrity Eclipse
We had a wonderful holiday particularly as the weather was exceptional for the end of October 75-80 deg. All the ports were easily accessible – though we did feel the cost of port/town transfer in Madeira was rather expensive. Take a taxi!
Food on board was excellent though service was a little slow some evenings – 45 minutes before first course was served in the dining room. Similarly there was not enough waiters in the bars. The bars were generally full and finding a seat was always extremely difficult. Rather annoying that Michaels lounge is no longer available unless you are in a suite but was often empty. This may be because of the increase in drinks packages.
Sea days – not enough activities. More informative lectures would have been nice. Four ports were dealt with briefly in 45 minutes. Music in the afternoons would also have been enjoyable. There was one afternoon show and it was very difficult to find a seat in the theatre. Hopefully Celebrity will have noted this and arrange more entertainment. Cheese and wine party was excellent.
