Celebrity Eclipse to return to UK for 2017 sailings

The most popular ship sailing from the UK will return to Southampton in April 2017 to offer its seventh consecutive season of cruises throughout the Mediterranean and Northern Europe.

Launched in the city of Southampton in 2010, Celebrity Cruises’ ship Celebrity Eclipse has returned each year to sail from the UK port during the late spring, summer and autumn months.

Highlights of the new 2017 season will include a Signature Event Sailing – cruises that take in incredible events – featuring the Roland-Garros French Open tennis tournament, more overnights stays in more destinations and new ports of call such as Frederica in Denmark.

In 2017 Celebrity Eclipse will return to Southampton and offer sailings to Scandinavia and Russia, including one featuring the walled Danish city of Frederica; cruises to Iceland, including an overnight stay in Reykjavik; Canary Islands cruises and those also taking in the Azores; and a popular two week Mediterranean cruise.

The itineraries in the 2017 European programme for Celebrity Eclipse feature more overnight stays in destinations than ever before.


As well as popular overnight stays in ports of call such as St. Petersburg, Copenhagen and Reykjavik, Celebrity Eclipse will for the first time also offer an extended overnight call in Lisbon, Portugal and Funchal, Madeira.

Sarah Harraghy, commercial sales director, Celebrity Cruises, UK & Ireland, commented: “I am thrilled to confirm that Celebrity Eclipse will return to the UK again in 2017.

“Due to the popularity of this ship and our European cruises, the Southampton based sailings are the very first around the world to go on sale.

“The addition of more overnight stays reinforces our commitment to bringing to life destinations and offering the most incredible experiences both on-land and on-board.”
