Hi Triton,
I'll get up at 4am next Friday to travel up there and spend the whole day driving along the tiny river (Ems) where she will sail down to reach the ocean. It's always a spectacular sight to see a big ship navigating that stretch of water! I shall post some pictures the next day (that'll be Jun-20)

Save travels to all

as a matter of fact, I'll sail on her on her very first (unofficial voyage) from Eeemshaven (where she does the sea-trials and receives her final supplies) to Southampton 17 - 19 July - I'm counting the days! W*ll post lost of pictures!

By the way, Triton: I assume you'll get off Infinity on Oct-11 in ft Lauderdale? That's the day we bord to sail on her to San diego!

There's a couple hundred pictures posted on another thread of the undocking. Also, the web cam is now announcing and showing the building of the Eclipse.

Default I'm ready!

Parrot Mom - Sure I'd love to go over and report back; however, I've already plunked some money down on a Panama cruise in September. I guess if I had the money or resources, would be there in a heartbeat!

Happysailing - Well, look for me. We most likely will be on the same pier! You see my picture, lol...I'll be the tallest guy walking down the plank. Would be great to turn around and embark on the Equinox!

Dkjretired - Thank you for the info! Will you be sailing on her or the Solstice soon?

Hey Manuel:

I see you sailed on the Solstice a couple of months back. Just curious if you wrote any type of review or posted your feedback on your voyage. Sure would like to read it. I've seen a couple from others.

Thanks!

When we came back from that cruise we had a medical emergency with my mom. Never did have time to post a review.

I will say this. We loved everything about that ship. The entertainment was the best we have experienced on a ship. I really enjoyed the food in the dinning room. Our waitress was outstanding, she was very friendly, and made laugh every evening.

We also liked the layout of the buffet and had delicious breakfasts and lunches everyday.
The service all over the ship was A+

We stayed up late every evening, made some friends and had a terrific time.

I have not yet booked another Celebrity cruise yet because we have 2 cruyises booked on Royal.
