About Celebrity Cruises
Celebrity Cruises, marked with an X on the ships’ stacks, is characterized by elegance and international atmosphere on midsized ships. Extraordinary itineraries are even interesting for experienced travelers. Although the atmosphere in the daytime is very casual, the dress code “Smart Casual” is required on the so-called “Chic Evenings”. Most ships are designed very classy but the Solstice Class convinces its guests with an innovative design. Basic skills in English are recommended if you want to travel with Celebrity Cruises.
Built on the famous German shipyard “Meyer Werft” and commissioned in 2010 the luxurious Celebrity Eclipse is part of the modern “Solstice Class”. She invites you to enjoy 5-star comfort, excellent service and superior dining at attractive prices.
Atmosphere on Board
This elegant ship hosts a very international mix of guests. Though it depends strongly on the ship’s routing, usually the guests are aged somewhere between 45 and 75. While clothing is very casual during the day guests enjoy some formal “black tie” evenings on every cruise.
The cozy and comfortably furnished staterooms on the Celebrity Eclipse are quite spacious. Guests of the “Concierge Class” cabins and the suites enjoy the excellent butler service. Of course all other cabins do also meet 5-star standard; for example meals or drinks can be ordered to your cabin 24/7 without extra charges. A special highlight for guests who love to relax are the “Aqua Class” cabins with balcony. Located near the Aqua Spa extra amenities like luxurious bathrobes, wellness showers in the bathroom, entrance to the exclusive “Persian Garden” and the outstanding “Blu Restaurant” are included.
Food & Beverages
The dominant colour of stylish main restaurant is white. Thanks to light effects a pleasant atmosphere is achieved. Food is superb and choices are rich. Vegetarian and light choices are always available and special dietary needs are well taken care of. As excellent food is definitely one of Celebrity Cruises’ trademarks the quality of the buffet restaurants is superior as well. On top guests may choose from the speciality restaurants like the “Murano”, the “Tuscan Grille” or the “Qsine” for an additional charge.
Entertainment, Sports and Relaxation
No matter if you love it quietly or like to party in the disco: from soft piano tunes in “Michael’s Club” to Broadway style shows and modern disco sounds all kinds of entertainment are available. Buy art at some of the frequent auctions, win a game of bingo or listen to an interesting lecture on your next destination. On the real lawn of the upper deck you may even participate in a picnic.
For relaxation or fitness visit the Aqua Spa with its large fitness area (wonderful sea-view included), a pool and a resting area. For a surcharge you might participate in guided sport-courses like Aerobic or Pilates or relax in the “Thermal Suite” with two steam saunas and heated loungers. At an extra cost the Spa also offers lots of beauty and wellness treatments. On the upper deck everyone can go swimming in the two pools or unwind in the whirlpools.
The Celebrity Eclipse is in our opinion one of the most beautiful, most stylish and most pleasant ships of all! An incredible highlight: the 2,000 m² of fine green lawn on the upper deck. Enjoy the sunset with an excellent cocktail from the “Patio on the Lawn” or the “Sunset Bar” and be sure to have chosen the perfect ship for an extraordinary experience.
