    Hi,

    I probably won't be on this cruise but can comment on the excellent choice of the Eclipse, a magnificent, elegant ship I had to pleasure to sail on to the Canary Islands in june 2010.

    Certainly the best choice for a transatlantic cruise with many beautiful sea days.

    Glad to know you enjoyed your cruise on this ship. This will be only our second cruise on Celebrity--having the first one about 10 years ago on Infinity when she was new. We definitely were not impressed at that time and quickly returned to Royal Caribbean ships.

    What did you dislike on X (or was better on RCI) at the time? Just curious.

    Well....since you asked.....we did not think the food was as good (probably the reverse now?) and the best meal we had was in the specialty restaurant. The dining room was soooo crowded that the waiters could barely move among the tables. The service was not as good. All personnel seemed aloof and unfriendly--especially by RCI standards. The entertainment was not as good. The cruise director came to the pool for "pool games" in a suit and tie and the pool game was ring toss a bottle of champagne. I'll probably think of some things I have forgotten later (it was 10 years ago)....just got up and haven't had any coffee yet!
