Having spent time reviewing cruise ships from Royal Caribbean and Celebrity Cruises, it’s worth noting they’re both under the same group, we did come to notice some little things that provide a more “Celebrity” like experience for those that want real class. Royal Caribbean’s Independence of the Seas is more than a hotel on water, and gives its passengers so much to do that we recommended this cruise ship to every reader although ships like Celebrity Eclipse provide extra efforts in service that are hard to beat on any cruise line.
While the Eclipse lacks many extras found on Independence of the Seas, Ice skating rink and climbing wall are some worth mentioning, you’ll more than find these features made up with your ability to find it hard to get a “no” from the staff onboard a Celebrity cruise ship. We tested this first hand and found staff running all over the ship to try and give you what you ask for, which it’s hard to put a price on the personal service you get and want when cruising.
What’s more important to you when cruising? Is it non-stop activities your after, a great deck for relaxing in the sun, are there certain events you want to go to daily while onboard, or do you put the personal service and attention to detail above all else when rating a cruise experience? You can see some of the food onboard Celebrity Eclipse specialty restaurants here, and see photos of the bridges we met first hand here (Celebrity, Royal Caribbean, and P&O).
