Just got off the Eclipse. A lovely ship, fantastic service, food and staff, however be careful of the cabin you get we where in 6102 which is fwd, terribly noisy especially when leaving/docking which sometimes can be 05.30 in the morning! We also found that entry to the Sky Lounge which is a great viewing point was restricted to Elite guests on certain evenings, we turned up and there where only 5 elite guests in the lounge, still we where refused entry, it was not generally "posted" that the lounge was being used for a private function. The other disappointment for us was the failure to enforce the dress code in the main restaurant on the formal evenings, people in jeans, polo shirts etc, perhaps the bigger issue was the restaurant manager informing me that he didn't know the rules regarding the dress code which is ridiculous. We never went to any other formal evenings like a lot of other guests, we are not great dressing up people but we respect the rules. Such a shame that a few people plus the failure of the management to enforce the rules spoilt the experience for us.
