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?"
