Great itinerary for a 7 day cruise. Embarkation was efficient at Southampton and got underway early (so much for a planned sail away get together - turned into a Southampton in the distance drink). All planned ports were visited and on time. Geiranger was stunning and worth getting up early for. Stateroom was well located, clean and quiet. Some of bedlinen had seen better days with holes in the bed cover!! Stateroom attendants were good as were table staff. Food in main dining room was of a good standard except on their "Top Chef" night which was of a lower standard. Oceanview cafe had a good selection of items but I found that hot food was sometimes cool/cold - more checking food temperatures needed. I would not recommend partially cooked ham/bacon joint, cold black pudding, cool burger meat, cool fajita chicken nor the runny omelette (which made an appearance for breakfast on some mornings). Great ship in terms of facilities, great destination, good staff at table and in stateroom but let down by the basics and attention to detail.

Norway was great; Eclipse was not.
