  • The Eclipse (now Xperience) is a wonderful ship. Our entire experience was first class. I would recommend Vaya as well as the Eclipse to anyone.

  • The naturalists aboard the Eclipse (now Xperience) were AMAZING. This is another huge differentiator between a ship of this quality and some of the others.
    Howard Caro
  • Eclipse (now Xperience) - excellent meals; lots to see each day: marine and land animals, birds; swimming, snorkeling, hiking, kayaking, cruising, socializing. Highly recommended.
