Photos: Launch Weekend for Celebrity Eclipse
Celebrity Eclipse Launch Weekend After completing a rescue mission to Bilbao last week to repatriate ash-stranded travellers, Celebrity Eclipse -- Celebrity Cruises' latest new-build -- was officially named in an emotional ceremony in Southampton this weekend.

Cruise Critic joined other U.K. media and travel agents to see what the contemporary ship, which will based in Southampton for the summer, has to offer.

First impressions? Eclipse has kept the stand-out features of its sister ships, Celebrity Solstice and Celebrity Equinox, such as the Martini Bar and Lawn Club (featuring real grass on the top deck), but there are also some new added touches. We especially love the fantastic Qsine dining venue and in-cabin facilities for making coffee -- and, of course, tea.

Celebrity Eclipse set off on its first revenue cruise to Le Havre today. The new cruise ship will sail Mediterranean and Canary Islands cruises from Southampton throughout the summer.
