Celebrity Eclipse

The latest addition to the fleet with ground-breaking features

Celebrity Cruises' most recent addition to the fleet, the 122,000-ton Celebrity Eclipse, arrived in April 2010 and is the third Solstice-class ship alongside Celebrity Solstice, which arrived in 2008, and Celebrity Equinox which launched in July 2009.

Ground-breaking features seen on all three 2,850-guest Solstice-class ships include:

  • The Lawn Club, the first real grass growing at sea featuring a lawn area larger than eight (8) tennis courts
  • Hot Glass Show, with live glassblowing demonstrations
  • Ten different restaurants including the main dining room inspired by old Hollywood glamour, and smaller speciality venues with ambience designed to complement the first-class cuisine
  • A new accommodation class, AquaClass, featuring a range of relaxation options such as dream-enhancing television programming, a welcome kit with teeth whitening sample, the option to dine in the exclusive restaurant, Blu, dedicated to guests staying in AquaClass accommodations and complimentary access to the Persian Garden within the onboard extensive AquaSpa facility
  • Rooms based on the design inspirations of five women selected for their travel and hospitality knowledge

    There are ten different dining options of Celebrity Eclipse

    More than 90 per cent of the accommodation onboard Celebrity Eclipse are outside staterooms, and 85 per cent have a balcony.

    Other onboard facilities include 19 different boutiques and shops such as the by-appointment-only Boutique C featuring the specially designed Solstice Diamond.

    Robin Shaw, vice president and managing director, Celebrity Cruises, UK and Ireland explained: “The UK and Ireland remains one of the fastest growing cruise markets in the world. Celebrity Eclipse sets new standards in the large ship luxury market and clearly shows the ongoing and industry leading commitment of Celebrity Cruises to the UK and Ireland travel industry.”

    Sailings from UK ports of call are traditionally the most popular and easiest to sell for travel agents. Celebrity Cruises expects to generate a majority of sales for the new ship via this channel, thereby increasing the growth opportunities for travel agents and cruise specialist businesses in the UK and Ireland.

    Itineraries for Celebrity Eclipse offer traditional Mediterranean favourite destinations, popular northern European cities, as well as short cruise taster options.
