Crowd sees Eclipse for the first time

12 March 2010

Cruise ship enthusiasts got to see brand-new vessel Celebrity Eclipse for the first time today (12 March) as it prepared for its first departure.

Docked at Meyer Werft shipyard in Papenburg, Germany, the Celebrity Cruises liner is the third in the company's $3.7 billion (£2.4 billion) Solstice Class fleet.

President and chief executive officer of the organisation, Dan Hanrahan, said Celebrity Eclipse has attracted interest from a large number of tourists.

He remarked: "This event is a vivid example of our Designed for You brand platform, as it's an experience ideally suited for discerning cruisers."

The firm launched a sweepstake, with the lucky winners able to enjoy a voyage on the cruise ship's inaugural journey.

Mr Hanrahan claimed that over 200,000 individuals entered the competition in an attempt to clinch a ticket.

Celebrity Cruises recently stated that Celebrity Eclipse is the "ultimate in premium cruising", adding that its luxurious cuisine and accommodating staff members make it an unforgettable experience.
