Design and construction

The keel of the Celebrity Eclipse was laid on 14 February 2007 and she floated in her drydock on 28 February 2010.

Celebrity Eclipse is the third Solstice-class ship, preceded by Celebrity Solstice and Celebrity Equinox. Solstice-class ships are designed to save energy, equipped with photovoltaic system, an optimized hull design, highly efficient hull coatings and lighting system using light emitting diodes, and are said to use only 70% of the energy consumed by other ships of their kind.

Facilities

Celebrity Eclipse and her sisters have several categories of staterooms. There are several bars and restaurants, some offering extra facilities at additional cost. There is a spa and solarium, and an area planted with grass for leisure activities. The Celebrity Solstice Class have a "Hot Glass Show", where glass is blown at sea by professionals from the Corning Museum of Glass, using electrical heating as flames are considered a hazard at sea. Some glass pieces are auctioned off at the end of the cruise to raise money for the museum's scholarship fund; others are raffled free of charge to the show's audience.

There are swimming pools, a casino, a theatre, shops, a library, an art gallery where art and glass are auctioned, an Internet café and Apple product shop, and the usual amenities.
