Farewell Eclipse

Today, the Celebrity Eclipse sailed from Southampton for the last time after 7.5 years and eight wonderful seasons.

The second of the Solstice class to set propeller in Southampton Water, she made her debut on a hazy April day in 2010 and was off again at 8pm to pick up passengers in Bilbao stranded due to the Icelandic volcanic ash cloud grounded planes across Europe.

She left on time as always, giving six blasts on her whistle then headed off to Boston.

In 2018 she cruises from Dublin, Amsterdam and Barcelona during April to November. Celebrity Silhouette replaces her in Southampton.
