Hailed ‘Best from the UK’ by Cruise Critic at the UK Cruiser’s Choice Awards 2014, the Celebrity Eclipse continues to wow us with exciting news of on-board renovations. Since 2010, this grand vessel has been part of the Celebrity Cruises fleet, showing us how to cruise in innovative and luxurious style. Sailing from Southampton, the Celebrity Eclipse ventures on itineraries such as the Norwegian Fjords Cruise and Scandinavia & Russia Cruise. So what exactly is in store for guests choosing to voyage with Celebrity Eclipse from May 2015?

Celebrity Eclipse Cruise
Introducing Gastrobar

The existing Cellar Masters wine bar will transform into the Gastrobar to provide an even wider selection of drinks and richer atmosphere.  Not only are more wines being added to the already extensive wine list but you will be able to choose from over 40 craft beers. Those who like something a bit sweeter can also prepare to be impressed by the artisan cocktails made there and then with the freshest ingredients. Choose one of the upscale bar snacks to accompany your drink of choice and enjoy the sophisticated décor, warm surroundings and music to suit the mood.

Chill out at Slush

With itineraries such as the 14-night Mediterranean cruise taking guests to some real hotspots like Genoa and Lisbon, an ice cold beverage or two is a welcome addition to the Eclipse’s offering. The Pool Kiosk is being reinvented as Slush which will serve both alcoholic and virgin frozen cocktails. Fresh cucumber, lemon juice and Florida orange juice are a few of the ingredients in the mix, used to make colourful creations in an equally bright venue that sits next to the pool area. It’s the perfect (and tastiest!) way to keep your cool.

Get snappy in The Studio

The Studio, Celebrity EclipsePictures can paint a thousand words, which make them an important part of any holiday experience.  The Studio will join the Hot Glass Show and specialise in fine art photography as one of the ship’s Modern Luxury venues. Visit The Studio to create magical mementos of your time on-board the Celebrity Eclipse. This way, you won’t even need to worry about bringing enough batteries for your digital camera!

The casino goes European

The Casino, Celebrity Eclipse

The Eclipse’s on-board casino is set to undergo a bit of a makeover complete with British style slot machines and European style roulette. Guests can also enjoy the upgraded bar area which will feature a large TV screen so that you don’t miss any major sporting events. Pretend you’re in glamorous Monte Carlo and succumb to the newly Continental charms of the tables on your way to equally glam destinations like France, the Azores or Russia.
