TRAVEL SERIES: CELEBRITY ECLIPSE

I easily get seasick so I’m probably the last person you’d think would jump on a cruise ship in an instant. Surprisingly, I have been in more than a dozen cruises and am looking forward to my next one June of this year. I have sailed around Europe, Alaska, the Caribbean, South America and across the Atlantic Ocean and my goal is to have cruised around the world before I eventually leave this planet. A month ago I was on a two-week South American cruise on board the Celebrity Eclipse and had an amazing time even meeting new friends. The cruise started in Buenos Aires, Argentina sailing down to Cape Horn, Chile, which is the tip of South America, then up to Uruguay before docking back in Buenos Aires. The ship is almost 10 years old but is still in great shape thanks to regular maintenance. Celebrity Cruises is the premium brand of Royal Caribbean and has been awarded by several travel magazines as one of the best premium cruises in the world. Above is a photo I took of the main dining room while below are photos I took around the ship including a photo of my stateroom using my GoPro Hero7 camera. The ship’s interior is very tastefully decorated, which was made cheerful by the Christmas decorations during my cruise. The ship in itself is a destination complete with specialty restaurants, a theater, casino, game rooms, bars, swimming pools, gym, spa and more. My preference for Celebrity is primarily due to the quality of the service, food and the crowd it attracts…much older and relaxed, fewer children and lastly no bar fights. LOL!

    Oceans are mighty and they do call us often.

    Not many can hear their call but those who do, often pack up their bags and head towards their nearest dock to board a cruise liner or cruise ferry. On those giant floating cities on water, those individuals can enjoy every luxury they can dream about under one roof.

    Various indoor and outdoor activities on such cruise ships provide unlimited amount of travel pleasures to the passengers, who either seek an escape from their hectic daily routine or to finally enjoy all the pleasures they were dreaming about during their prime years.

    As far as I’m concerned, I haven’t stepped on a cruise ship yet. I had seen one, an out-of-service giant which was docked on Gadani ship-breaking yard back in the spring of 1998. Since it was there to be dismantled up completely, I didn’t got the chance to step onboard and check it out.

    So yes, I do like to step on a cruise ship and sail towards the horizon, where there’s nothing but water wherever you look. Though I may get seasick within a minute or two of my boarding, I may want to try it out. Just for fun 🙂

    But until that dream turns into a reality, I can enjoy the snaps taken by Reymon de Real as back in December, he answered the call of the seas and boarded Celebrity Eclipse on a two-week South American cruise.

    Head towards his blog for more lovely snaps and details about this magnificent cruise ship!

  2. Oh Wow!
    So this is what a cruise ship looks like from the inside. This certainly looks so much amazing.
    I have seen just one in real, which was back in spring of 1998 (yeah, I’m that old). And it was docked on a ship breaking yard, heading towards its dismantling phase.
