New ship welcomed to Celebrity Cruises fleet

Date Posted: 20 Apr 2010
Category:


A new ship has finally been taken into service by Celebrity Cruises, meaning the firm now has a fleet of ten vessels carrying holidaymakers around the world.

The Celebrity Eclipse was launched on Thursday (April 15th) in a ceremony attended by bosses of the company, including chief executive Dan Hanrahan.

With space for 2,850 guests on board, the ship is ready to make journeys around the world, with itineraries taking in parts of Russia, the Caribbean, the Mediterranean and Scandinavia.

It is due to have its naming ceremony on Saturday (April 24th), with yachtswoman and cancer survivor Emma Pontin being given the honour of leading the celebrations.

Making the launch of the ship even more special will be the fact that it is currently being used to help get stranded tourists back home to the UK after the disruption to flights caused by the volcanic ash across Europe.

Richard Fain, chairman of Celebrity Cruises, said: "Collecting stranded British and Irish vacationers is a fitting first mission for [our] new ship Celebrity Eclipse - what better way for a ship dedicated to the UK to mark her arrival?"

What our customers say

"I booked my first ever cruise on Tuesday 5th September 2017. After lengthy searching and much deliberation we booked through Iglu. So far, I am incredibly happy I booked with Iglu. This being our first cruise Debi proved very helpful. I was [also] very impressed with the level of assistance offered by Connie. She answered my questions and put my mind at rest. I am very impressed with all aspects of dealing with Iglu and I would like to take this opportunity to thank you for all your support. "

"Leighanne has been excellent dealing with my various queries this year. She has been kind and informative and obtained what i think is a good deal for me in October. She is persistent and very informative, so even when my 1st deal fell through I felt confident enough to approach her for this present Crystal cruise...”
